I love that word ... ennui.  It explains exactly what I am feeling these days.  In fact, I think that the song that is currently popular about 'not doing anything ... nothing at all' also sums up my feelings.  Our summer was short here people ... not enough got accomplished.  I hear about heat waves all over the country but, here in the Northwest ... we are finally getting a few tomatoes.  Don't get me wrong, the weather is gorgeous at the moment but, there is a definite chill in the air at night.  I know this means the end is near and, I am not looking forward to winter this year.  I must be getting old and rather than accepting and rejoicing in our typical wintery gloom, I am wimping out and dreading it.  But, here it is September 1 .... SEPTEMBER PEOPLE!  How did that happen?

 There was frost on the pumpkins at higher elevations last night.  Egad!  I'm not ready!  And then, there is my daughter and all of the cute young bloggers out there who are either talking about or already decorating for Fall.  Sigh!  I am sooo not ready.  (Have I said that enough times for you?  Maybe just one more time.)  I AM NOT READY.

WHEW!  Okay, well its beautiful outside today so I am going to take advantage of it and live in a total state of denial for just a little longer.  It is still summer, it is still summer, it is still summer.  Right?

I have to admit to feeling gleeful when I heard Central Oregon was getting the first freeze of the season. Maybe smug is a better word! Hardy har har from the warm side of the mountains!
