Where did I lose that minute?

Ahh the Sun.  Today it is going to rain all day.  A bit of respite from the blistering nineties plus of the last several weeks, and the humidity feels almost at one hundred percent.  So the cloud cover is a nice blessing and rain makes not much difference since we were damp with all the humidity.

It is just a little over a month since the Summer Solstice.  It is just beginning to be noticeable with the approach of the evening a little earlier each day.  As the season rambles on and the Earth turns we are 'losing' a minute or so of daylight each day.  Next month a bit more, September maybe two minutes a day.  Soon the Sun will be sitting lower in the sky and the days much shorter with the changing of the Seasons. 
The schools started back this week which feels like things are out of sync.  It was after Labor Day when I return to the school room in my youth, it was almost Fall then.  So when I hear the Summer is over...What? there are almost two months left.  Guess it is how you look at your calendar of  events.  For me I will watch the placement of the Sun in the sky.

  1. We were looking for simple deck chairs last week. Nada. all the fall stuff is in. This is pretty much the start of summer, our seasons seem to run a month behind everyone else. So we'll perch carefully on the ancient woven ones..but I'll bet we forget to look when winter starts for a couple of new deck chairs...

    1. Same here. Summer clearance. If you want something for summer you got to buy it in February. That's out of sync as well. No wonder we are running around in circles.

  2. I bet by the start of next month, some stores will be putting out Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations! I prefer to live by the seasons rather than the calendar as well. :)

    1. Meijers has put out jackets. Really? It is 90 degrees out there for at least another 6 weeks and they are putting jackets out. Out of sync.

  3. I remember to have to start a new school year this early too. Here in the Netherlands the school holidays are spread out, so the sooner a region starts their vacation, the sooner they will have to go back to school agian

    1. Modified school year is what they call it here. Part of my sales is based on the school year, when to move and not, so things are out of sync. And evidently it is World Wide.
