September Summer

Nora June knows just what you can do with your pumpkin spice latte.

{Obviously, she would politely decline one because it's still summer, but she would encourage you to enjoy it as soon as you want. She's really a nice girl, that Nora.}

The heat index quickly crept into the triple-digits this weekend as visions of fall danced in everyone's head. For many, Labor Day weekend is the end of an era. It marks the time to pull out those boots and hoodies, plan bonfires and sprinkle pumpkin spice into any and all baked goods and beverages. Pumpkin withheld, I'm a fan of these things, but you can put me on the too early bandwagon. I know it's September and it's probably already fall in some parts of the country, but it's still sweltering summer in south Arkansas. Here is photographic proof:

Like most, we spent the three-day weekend in the pool. Unlike most, we did not celebrate it as a kiss goodbye to a season. We still have a few weeks left to go, and I intend to enjoy summer to the last drop. Even if the forecast calls for a rainy week in my neck of the woods, there's no hint of autumn around here.

Football fans spent the weekend with sweaty brows and wet shirts, the leaves are all bright green, and the summer sun could still cook an egg on the back porch. It's legally, officially, and clearly still summer. Hang tight, all you sweater lovers, it's going to be around for a little while.

Have a Happy Wednesday, y'all!

I'm with you: summer is not over until it's over! I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

Last weekend was crazy hot! I went to Walmart yesterday and they have sweaters on the racks, and fall scents in the air freshener section. I'm SO ready for fall.

I was totally thinking of you after I wrote that, Karen! I know how much you love your colder weather. :)
