I'm afraid of August.
Why? Well, it means that my "summer of love" (self-love, that is) is coming to an end.
In 3-4 short weeks, my beloved students will be back, and there goes my freedom and lack of responsibility.
It also means that I have to stop skiving around and get my summer projects finished. I can let a lot of them go. (I STILL haven't stained my side deck -- and I've been in the house for 5 years!) But there are some projects that I've committed to so I must finish them. (The only way I can ensure I'll get a project done in the summer is to tell someone else that I'll do it.)
So, I'm a busy beaver these days trying to cram in fun, enjoyment, embarassing the one child living at home with me this summer AND getting my projects finished.
Why must you come so soon?
But wait; let's be positive here. There are so many wonderful things about August in Nova Scotia. Let's focus on them.
- Fresh corn
- Bountiful blueberries
- Local veggies for delicious hodge-podge
- My littlest girl's birthday (She'll be 20 on the 24th)
- Pirate Days in Mahone Bay - Another opportunity to dress up and go out and dance
- Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival
