Don’t Give Up on Summer!

Happy Post Labor Day!  According to the calendar, it’s not quite fall yet, but it isn’t really summer anymore either, especially here in northern New England.  Fall is in the air —  people are back from vacations and digging in at work, the school buses are rolling down the roads, the white pants and shoes are washed and put away, and I can find parking in my town again!

But really, not much has changed from last week, before Labor Day.

The last few days have been hot and humid.  On Saturday, I went for a run and it was the hottest run of the summer!  I was quite surprised.  As a matter of fact, in an effort not to break out in a cold sweat (something that I am prone to do when it is very hot), I walked the last mile home.  Even though I stayed outside for a while afterwards, and delayed my shower, after I did shower I continued to sweat for another hour — ick!  And then today I went to yoga class and it was as hot and sticky as any class in July.

I’m thinking that summer might be planning on lingering for a while longer, and I am glad, because according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, it is going to be a cold, cold winter!


  1. Grace, I like that you emphasize fitness in all areas, not just physical. I hardly used my air conditioner at all this summer, except for the last couple weeks of August. You’re right, it’s like summer took its time getting here, and hopefully, will delay the cold weather. Altho – it was on the brisk side in Toronto today. I think Mother Nature just likes showing off!

  2. Our weather here in KY is cooling off in the next couple days. I hope our winter isn’t too bad this year. The past few years it’s been pretty mild for here.

  3. According to the Farmer’s Almanac it is supposed to be brutal here in the northeast. I hope they are wrong, we’ll see…
