Looking forward to Autumn~in a way.  I don't really mind the heat but we have had tons of heat this summer...I say tons because heat in Indiana feels heavy..and it feels heavy on your body...making it difficult to walk...your thighs stick together and your legs feel so heavy you can barely put one foot in front of the other... you look and feel like you are walking through water...in slow motion. It makes you sigh and your neck feel damp and drippy and then the mosquitos come and feed on your damp, hot, heavy, drippy skin.  They like to gather on my wrists and ankles in particular...these Black Asian Tiger mosquitoes that have little white rings around their legs like they have stripey socks on.  Oh, how I long to just sit outside on my swing during the day and evening without the sheen of mosquito repellent on my skin.   But no, I have to be a shiny bauble slick with DDT or whatever is in this repellent spray so that I can just go out and fill the bird and squirrel feeders.  I know they see me coming and they just hope in their little black heads that I have forgotten to spray the crap on me so that they can have a nice big swig of fresh, non-repellent blood.  Doesn't matter what time of day or night it is, these little stripey vampires are out and about.  They seem to love the bright, hot sunshine.  Darned if I know why.  So I am looking forward to a little cooler weather just so that I can sit outside and enjoy the endless blue skies that we have been having since April and so that I will no longer be a picnic basket for a nit!

I am so ready for fall, too! We sat out on the patio this evening and I had to come in and put calomine lotion on all my mosquito bites. The itching keeps me awake at night. But we love to sit out!

swap you some of your heat for some of our (interminable) rain!
And, just to add insult to injury we get the mossies too!

I can't decide if I'm ready for fall or not - because to me, fall is like Sunday - meaning Monday, a.k.a. winter, is right around the corner....and I really don't like winter. So therefore, I shall enjoy the heat and as much as possible, try to avoid complaining about all the sweating lol :) After all, it really doesn't matter if I am ready or not, either way, Fall and Winter will come without delay! :)
