It's Sunday and it's raining. I'm not impressed, Mother Nature!!
I always feel ripped off when an entire weekend in the summer is overcast and rainy. It's like a wasted opportunity to get out and enjoy the (short) summer season.
Summer just goes by so quickly, and we really only have a handful of weekends to enjoy. With Back-To-School campaigns and fall clothing being launched earlier each year, it's not surprising that most people complain that summer doesn't last long enough.
I've always thought that the reason summer seems to fly is because most people enjoy the weather so much. I just assumed that winter seems to drag on forever, since it's so awful. What doesn't make sense is that some people I know prefer fall to summer, and they still feel as though it goes by too quickly.
Do you think one of the reasons we feel like summer goes by too quickly is because we jam pack our schedules?
Think about it.
Do you already know what your plans are for the next few weekends? While I don't have my entire summer planned out this far in advance, I have activities planned all across the summer. Anything from races to cottage weekends, to concerts and festivals, there's a lot to do at this time of year and they're usually "events" that you know about in advance and look forward to.
Time flies when you're having fun, doesn't it?
If this is true, it doesn't make me want to purposely avoid making plans during the summer months, but it's an interesting perspective.
Let's make the most of it, shall we?
