August Blahs

All the wild raspberries and wild blackberries have been picked.  The rewards for venturing out and sweating like a horse are different than they were a month ago.

August has always been my least favorite month.  As a kid, it was because school would be starting soon.  As an adult, it is because here in southern Michigan, August is the month most likely to offer conditions closely resembling an Amazon Rainforest. 

Still, there are some pleasant things about August.  Remove the bra, wring it out, step into the cool house and from the window, watch a doe and her twin fawns scrounging for apples.

Come to think of it, I haven't had that much moisture under my top since the peak of menopausal hot flashes.  Bah.  Let's return to some nice things about August.


Maybe the Lake Effect goes on vacation in August to rest up before snow time.

Snow is nice. 

Happy August everybody!



  1. The weather is so strange everywhere.
    We are in our monsoon season so we do have more humidity but the days are cooler from 115+ to 90's That is so much better. Plus the evening are cooling off they are in the middle 70's so life is much better for us.
    Love the sweet gud dug face. I hope there is a cool spot for such a gud duggie.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  2. The dog needs a belly rub. The deer are a pleasant sight.

  3. It's been far too hot here this summer. I've had heat exhaustion twice!
