Summer ain’t finish yet until the fat lady sings

Labour day may have arrived, some children are back to school and it may have rained just for one day on the first day of school, it is still summer. As soon as the rain is over, we need an umbrella to protect ourselves from the sun. We just don’t want to ruin our milky skin tone complexion. Using an umbrella is one the best way to prevent skin cancer.

Oh, the adventures of summer is never-ending. Having tea party and enjoying the cool drink under the canopy of red grapes is a delightful way to pass the warm humid days. Women talking about the latest fashion, men discussing how to solve the world’s program  and the children running around the gazebo chasing each other.

As for the children, they need cooling, too. The water park is their favorite spot to get wet, wild and weary.  They could never run out of ideas and imagination playing with their much-loved toys the dinosaurs.

Summer will continue until September 21. With the blue skies and no clouds on sight, who needs the weatherman? The garden will keep on blooming, the apple tree is thick with little green apple fruit, the figs and plums are in abundance, laundry will still hang outside to dry. I will carry on with my walks down the lake to enjoy the people canoeing, dragonflies hovering around, turtles sunbathing, bees feasting on the fuchsia flowers and enjoy the farmers market.

When I see the fat lady sings at farmers market, then I can say, Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner.

  1. Ah summer – you give it your all. I wrote this last September in my post “Summer’s Last Gasp”….

    “Spring might come early, summer when it was good and ready, winter when you least expect – fall is always on time”

    🙂

  2. I tried using an umbrella one summer day here and my husband looked at me like I was crazy. I think umbrellas are a better sunblock than the chemical ones available in the stores. It seems that here in the States, there is a cultural memory of umbrellas/parasols being used only by the upper class women.

    I say, people here don’t know what they are missing. 🙂 😉

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
