It’s hard to believe summer is almost over and autumn is almost here. Everyone I’ve spoken with has been surprised at how quickly summer came and went. Maybe it was the fact that New England suffered a particularly brutal winter this year that made summer seem so short. We’re not exactly ready to jump right back in to shoveling snow and plowing our driveways, are we?

I’m still in denial about summer being (almost) over. The days are still warm and humid, and the sun doesn’t go down until after 7. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to drive at night in the dark, and I’m almost (not quite, though) wishing for colder weather so the bugs can clear up. I still hear the summer sports cars drive by with their loud engines and people enjoying their music at high volumes – all signs of summer. I have yet to see golden leaves of autumn trees, or farms advertising great apple picking opportunities, or any of that autumnal stuff.

But my Facebook feed is a little different. People are clambering for pumpkin everything already. My social networks are filled with people who are “ready for fall”, but I wonder if they realize how brief autumn really is? The skeleton army is already recruiting on Tumblr for the skeleton war. Who are these people who can’t seem to savor the final throes of summer?

Who is really ready for THAT?

As for me, I’ll be out washing my car in the late-summer sun, or pulling weeds in my yard. I won’t be asking if the Pumpkin Spice Latte is available yet, but instead still thinking about when my next barbecue get together will be. What are you doing to enjoy the last few weeks of summer? Do you do anything special, or are you waiting for fall as well?
