You know when you find something special how you get a little rush, a little quickening of the heart, and you might gasp a little! That is what happened to me when I spotted my first colorful FALL leaf! Leaves are already falling off the oak trees, but they're brown and not too inspiring. But, this one proclaims that fall is on the way!
This summer hasn't been like any other I remember. I've actually enjoyed most of it. Yes, me the person who hates heat and humidity has enjoyed this summer. That is based largely on the fact that this summer has been slightly cooler. We haven't even reached the 100 mark and I'm praying that we don't! The heat index...with the high humidity, that's another story. It's been over 100 for several days. Another great thing about this summer is that a breeze always seems to blowing which certainly helps. Moving hot air feels much better than still hot air!
Mr. H has been a big part in my getting outside this summer. He makes, and I mean MAKES me walk every evening. I have to be sick to miss walking
and give him a doctor's excuse. I found out real quickly that walking in the summer heat can create problems. My walking led to sweating, which led to dehydration, which led to low blood pressure, which led to dizzy spells, which led to me forcing myself to drink more water. No worries, nothing serious, problem taken care of...drinking more water is an easy solution.
Anyway, back to the fall leaf. Even though this summer was more bearable, I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures of September and finding more gorgeous fall leaves.
