For today's Think Write Thursday, Carole and Kat provided the prompt "Hello, August."
So hello, August. Like all other things, you arrive every year, regardless of whether or not I am ready, happy, or whatever. And that is a good thing. It means *I'm* still here to say, "Wow, it's already August."
Like all months, you have things I like and things I don't. I used to dread you as a kid, since you meant school started again soon. But I also liked you, because you were usually the month we went on vacation.
Right now, I guess you are OK. I'm not happy about the fact that at least around here, you are still pretty hot and humid. But I am happy that your arrival means that end of that is coming. You are the month when the farmers' market has a lot that I look forward to seeing in abundance: tomatoes, corn, peaches, and early apples. So I enjoy that about you, I think more than anything else.
I'm not pleased that I fell yesterday and really messed up my right hand/wrist and knee - nothing really drastic, just painful, uncomfortable, and not pretty. At least I'm left-handed though, so I can still do most things pain-free. And I know I didn't fall because it was August, so I'm not blaming you for that. :-)
I did remember the #augustbreak2017, albeit a few days late, so that is definitely a good thing. (Though I posted tomorrow's prompt today. Sigh.) I particpated last year, and enjoyed it quite a bit. I like Instagram a lot, and it is fun to have the various prompts. So thanks for that one!
I hope to spend most of your month trying to remember to live in the moment, enjoy my life, and be as happy as I can be. So I think it will be OK, you know?
Having said that - if you wanted to cool down weather-wise, that would be great ...
