It’s Over!
Summer, that is!

In the Northern hemisphere, the summer solstice officially started on June 21, 2014 at 6:51 a.m., Eastern Standard Time. Yesterday, September 22, 2014 at 10:29 p.m., the autumn equinox begun; thus, ending the days of summer.
For those of us, like me, who live in colder climates, gone are the warm days. The coolness has already started. The jackets have come out of the closets. Our furnaces have been ignited. Before long, the winter days will appear along with the dreadful cold weather and snow flakes. Admittedly, I am not a fan of cold weather. My native Mississippi warm blood has never left despite the decades of my living in the north.
Yes, the summer is over and I’m not happy about it. I wish I could keep the warmness here, but unfortunately I cannot. Therefore, I shield my body from the coldness with warmth – winter coats, hats, scarves, and the like. Then, I do the next best thing! Year round summer living – down South – here I come for a few days at a time. Let the trips begin! Au Revoir!
