|Another hot, steamy morning.|
Heat index by noon; 106 degrees.
Has it really been one whole year since I
last wrote to you?
Thank you so very much for stopping by the
mountains of east Tennessee.
We had a lovely time when you first arrived!
But, somehow, your visit has lingered a little too long...
Next week, we will turn our calenders to the
month of August.
In all honesty, the welcome mat is a little worn out!
You came in blazing this year.
Not even giving Spring a chance to stay
her entire season!
Would it not be easier to gracefully make your exit?
Perhaps admitting the harsh toll you have placed....
The Dog Days of Summer
have swooped in and taken hold.
|Baby Girl claims a spot under the ceiling fan!|
Heck, Summer, even our beloved four-legged creatures
do not want to leave the cool air of their home!
|"It happened again! The sun came back!"|
No lingering in the back yard to bark at
rabbits, turkey, or the deer.
No games of tackle with one another.
The three of them march out, take care of business,
and return inside.
Napping in the cool air, while ceiling fans give an extra bonus!
|"Me and my bunny ain't moving at all today!"|
Even the horses are ready to bid you farewell!
When Spring came to visit she brought
beautiful, lush, green grass for them.

One very, tired little filly from all that hot sun!
But, Summer, your intense stay,
your thoughtless actions of
have made these five Arabians all agree
on one thing....

Oy, she had attitude!
They are flipping the calender to September.
They are skipping August!
|"You betcha we are skipping August!"|
I do believe we will all be happier!
And October will be right around the corner.
With brisk, morning breezes.
Leaves in every color...
Heck, Summer, we will even
welcome, the tourists that flock
to the mountains each Fall to
ooh and aah
over the Autumn colors....
(and don't know how to drive on one-lane mountain roads! :)
I, must be honest.
I would be perfectly happy living in
a world with just three seasons.
Autumn, Winter,and Spring...
|Happy Mare on a breezy Spring day!|
Thank you again for your visit, Summer!
If you cannot make it next year,
to the mountains of east Tennessee,
I most certainly will understand!
