“Spinning around in circles, living it day to day,
and still, 24 hours, maybe 60 good years,
it’s really not that long a stay.” ~ Jimmy Buffett – Cowboy In The Jungle
I hope to have many more trips around the sun before I venture to the great Beyond. In the meantime, I am basking in the joy that, for me at least, comes in celebrating the end of August.
We are just a couple of days into September and yesterday could not have been more perfect. I started off the day in the best room of the house…our screened porch, with a cup of ‘nectar from the gods’ in one of my ‘game day’ mugs and it was so cool outside, I needed a blanket over my legs. (Grabbing a blanket was a quicker option than changing from shorts.)
My beloved Bulldogs played a good game, I completed one of those projects I have been hitting the snooze button on for many months and the end result was great!
We kicked off a new season of ‘Time For Dervin’ (www.timefordervin.com) and the early feedback has been exciting.
I got to start playing my ‘A Nip In The Air’ playlist, which are songs that remind me past autumns, cooler weather and, of course, months with r’s.
College football, oysters back in season, breakout the sweatshirts, sweaters, apple scented candles, trips to north Georgia, hot chocolate and fires.
Now, I am up early enjoying the day of rest and looking forward to just that. I intend to milk every day I can while during this season because it seems time continues to fly.
More laughing, more simplicity…less of anything else.
