I Wear Boots All Summer Long

I have to say that I am fickle. A few weeks ago, I couldn't wait to get out to my garden and look at it. I was weeding like crazy and watching these tiny vegetables grow. I would wait for the day I would go out there and pick them and then eagerly gobble them down. Today, I really didn't care if I went to the garden or not. I did though because I had to go grab the mail so on my way back to the air conditioned house, I stopped and looked around. The squash plants are all but dead due to varmints no doubt. The lettuce is out of control, the carrot tops are huge but every time I pull one out they are tiny. The tomatoes are still running amok. There are tons of tomatoes but they are all green. But the thrill is gone. I think once the tomatoes come in, I might be excited again but today I am ambivalent about the garden.

I think I am also starting to wonder if there will ever be a job available for me here in town. While I love staying home and I am busy with my blogs, garden and other stuff, I miss being able to have somewhere to go everyday. I actually miss working. Yes, I know that sounds freaking nuts but it's true. I also miss the money but that's another matter altogether. I liked working and having new projects and actually being paid for them.

I am also over summer. I have no idea why but the other day it was really cool in the morning and the day was gloomy and it reminded of Fall. It reminded me of pumpkins and leaves falling and I wanted it to be Fall already. So ever since I have been longing for those cool autumn days. I am longing to put on my coat and boots. Thus the title of my post from Nightbird by Stevie Nicks. I totally get what she means. I want to walk outside and feel the cool air on my face. I want the cool breeze to run through my hair and suck in the cold air. That might sound a little weird but Fall is just such a wonderful time for me. I love it.

And the summer became the fall
I was not ready for the winter
It makes no difference at all
'Cause I wear boots all summer long
~ Stevie Nicks
