Summer, Fall and the Start to Something New
The summer is winding down.
The summer is winding down. Forgive me, I just had to read that ONE MORE TIME. It’s been a long time since I’ve thought in terms of summer coming to an end; along with Fall being the start to something new and fresh—like school!
I don’t even know where to begin to tell you about what led to this event. I’ve been busy with paper work, shopping for clothes that fit, getting phone calls made—making preparations for a fresh start; and I’ve barely had to to write, though I’ve come to the computer several times to write a blog post. So many thoughts just seem to run rampant through my mind and I stop and just stare at the screen. No words come.
I’m thinking about things un-done, priorities, responsibilities. I think of the future; and for the first time in a long time I am day dreaming about MY future. It almost sounds sad; but I don’t mean it that way.
I’m thrilled! I’m excited. I’m giddy with curiosity.
I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. Most of you knew that already, but it’s true. I actually wrote the financial aid dept. today, because the recorded message said, an email would be answered faster than a phone message… (big surprise!) and after asking my questions (yes, a list of questions) I apologized for sounding clueless!
Plain and simply, I’m scared, with excitement!
It was beyond me, what classes I would be taking when I showed up to take the college entrance test. That’s how little I know about college. My schedule says ‘liberal arts’. Well! you will believe me when I say, I came straight home and GOOGLED it!
Be careful what you search on the internet. Different view points are scattered about this world wide web! Depending on what you read- a liberal arts graduate, can be a creative person who thinks outside the box and can do anything and everything; OR they’re not worth hiring, due to their inability to make up their minds and not being structured enough!
I nodded my head in agreement knowing that both of those definitions of a liberal arts students… FITS ME!
My blog photos this evening have nothing to do with school; but they do have to do with summer winding down. Our grass is turning brown from the heat, though today we’re having a cool front with 10° cooler temps than we’ve been having. It’s so hot and dry many leaves are falling from the trees, like it’s late October! The Catalpa trees do this every summer. Right now we walk through the yard and hear the crunch of leaves under our feet. By October, often times, the yard has ‘greened up’ again, before the really cold weather sets in for winter. So brown yard equals some trees are losing leaves and there are no flowers to photograph.
Good Ol’ George and Lucy, a splash of color in our otherwise brown exterior as summer is winding down.

And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season, we shall reap if we faint not. ~Galatians 6:9
