Summer is over in a lot of ways. Kids are back in school here in Oklahoma. Traffic has increased, time to be bear down. Unless of course if you are retired, so my trails and paths through the woods are pretty much deserted during the week. Suits me fine!! We still have lots of warm days ahead of us.

The weather turned cool on Wednesday which is good in a way because many of the schools here in Oklahoma are starting up. Wouldn't want the youngsters in school when it is sunny and dry outside, right? Best that it be drizzly and cool so they can concentrate on their studies. I swear, when I was a kid, the greatest day of the year was the day they let school out for the summer. The worst day was generally about the second week after classes started. The teachers had enough of us by then so no more smiles and indulgences the rest of the year. I will admit I had pretty good teachers except for my first grade teacher in Payson, Arizona. Julia Randall, I had her in like her 46th year of over a 50 year teaching career. She literally started teaching before Arizona was a state. She was the one who invented shock and awe. Sorry, I digress but as you can tell, 61 years later, I am still traumatized by the start of my academic career.

We had a break from the hot weather. Several days of rain and low temperatures!! It was great, our brown grass greened up and I got a chance to cut it, and here I am four days later and it needs cut again. Is there any way we can have green grass that doesn't grow or need watered? Check on that and then check back with me. And I don't want to hear about astroturf, indoor/outdoor carpet or any of that.
Seriously though I have decided to just roll with the weather. I don't want to spend all my time inside so I just make allowances and go do outside what I normally want to do, just avoiding the hottest part of the day and taking lots of water. Do you roll with your weather? How do you do it?
