The End of Summer

I like all four seasons.  Really, I do.  Even though I might complain about the frigid temperatures or the excessive heat sometimes, I enjoy living in a place that give me four distinct seasons.  There is one season though that I do not like.  It’s “The End of Summer.”

The end of summer is the time when our state fair starts (last Thursday) and lasts until the official start of fall.  It’s the time when the boys come into rut and the girls come into heat. All the hormones lead to lots of skirmishes and amorous advances.  It’s a pain.  It’s also the time I have to worry more about worms in the goats.  I’m usually swamped with garden stuff, and I have to go back to work.  Today was my first day back at work.  That’s never a happy thing.

    Sigh, I understand, I would hate to see it too.

    I like all four seasons too, Teresa. But I can see that this time of year would be particularly hard for you. I’m amazed at how much you do in so little time.

    I really don’t know how you do all you do–even with help sometimes– yes,kids going back to school so early too– we do’t start here until after Labor Day week-end.

    It seems that the school year continues to get longer – starts earlier and goes later! We used to start after Labor Day, and were out by the third week in May! It’s so different now. I hope you’ll manage to get everything done…you probably will.
