Summer has definitely gone. The weather has turned much cooler over the last few days, in the mornings the temperatures have plummeted into the 40s and that is quite a shock to the system when it happens so quickly. I am reminded of the early days of a school year when I was growing up. These were the days when I wished that I could still be outside, knowing that the wonderful, refreshing weather would not last forever. The dreary days of late Autumn and Winter aren't that far away. Every year we try to hold onto this beautiful season in vain, but on the other hand, knowing that it is so short makes it special and something to be treasured.
