Did you feel it?

Apparently, this morning, Sunday, September 23rd, at 5:51am, while I was fast asleep, Summer ended.
There should have been a shudder, or maybe a sonic boom. I am sorry - but no one asked me if this was okay. I had a long list of things to do this summer and I did not get to everything.
♠ I had some wonderful trips away with John: Windsor, Toronto, Milwaukee...
♠ I saw Roger Waters, John Fogerty, and Ian Hunter in concert...
♠ I stood in line with Barb to purchase the final installment of Harry Potter and read it in under 24 hours...
♠ I Walked for Wishes and went to the Cleveland Zoo....
♠ I saw the Indians play...
♠ I saw fireworks...
♠ I got to spend some time with my big sister Diana and her girls, even if it did mean that Breanna was in the hospital...
♠ I visited Denver and Minneapolis...
♠ I ate at Sonic...
♠ I went to the Geauga County Fair and John got to win me prizes at games of skill...
♠ I attended some fine Happy Owlers with my Chi Omega Sisters...
♠ We grew some peppers in the garden and cooked wonderful meals with them...
♠ I had some lovely chats with my new 'pretend online friends' and even hung out with them in person...
♠ I finally went to Hollo's...
♠ I rocked out to Custard Pie...
♠ I enjoyed the Summer television season, I love 'The Closer', and 'Monk', and 'Psych'...
♠ I started a blog...
But we were going to go fishing! And have some picnics! I was going to sit outside on the shaded patio in the warmth and the breezes and take advantage of my amazing wireless internet capability. I was going to visit my parents and my son more. I was going to read some good books. I wanted to create some art.
Do you have any idea how long and hard I had to look to find a changing leaf for the opening photo? I guess I'll put those things on the list for Fall. Plenty of time.
After all - It is harvest time right?

Look at all the things you've achieved this summer, rather than to focus on the things you have NOT done !!!
Life is short. Be happy that you accomplished SO MUCH !!!
