As much as I try to live in the moment and appreciate the here and now I have to admit I’m sort of sick of summer. It happens every year around this time when North Carolina dishes up oppressive doses of heat and humidity starting bright and early each day. The hum of air conditioning provides the soundtrack for what is best described as the dog days of summer. That’s where we are now and I’m squinting into the bright sun for hints of fall and cooler weather. I’m not one to wish my life away, but I wouldn’t complain if we just skip over August and go straight to September.
