The dog days of summer. I have been MIA around here lately, trapped in the doldrums. So much to do, so little time to get it done. Trying to organize,decorate, trying to get my baby ready for the move to the University (Sept. 1) Looking forward (not) to going back to work (Sept. 2). The summer has flown and I look back and wonder what I did with it. In a way it will be good to get back to my work routine, too much time on my hands seems to make me lazy and unproductive. I need the pressure of a faster paced day to light a fire under me. But I am not looking forward to it. So for the next two weeks I will try to get things buttoned up for the summer and hopefully enjoy the time I have left. Time flies doesn't it? And the summer flies fastest of all.


  1. Hi Kathy,
    Yes, time does fly by so fast. It's been so hot here, that I was WISHING it to go by fast. Now that school is about to start, I wish it hadn't gone by like that. Is the university very far away? I'm not sure how I'll do when it's time for my kiddies to fly the coop. I'm not ready for that just yet.
    Patricia :o)

  2. Hi Kathy love the photo on this post.
    You are right having time on our hands can tend to make us a bit lazy - we all need to have a routine to get us moving in the right direction.
    Enjoy what is left of your summer break

  3. I agree....where has the summer gone? I'm not looking forward to cold weather and being in the house all the time.... I always think of "back to school time" as the end of summer and into a more discliplined lifestyle.

  4. Time does fly, and I'm convinced summer flies fastest of all. I am really not ready for it to end yet.

  5. Hi Kathy...yes I agree, this summer has flown by. But I do look forward to the holiday season..I love decorating!


  6. The trick is to KEEP busy no matter what, chickadee! So get to work!

  7. Hi Kathy,
    I'm still waiting to see those pretty curtain up in your bedroom !!!!!!!!!
    Enjoy the last few days before returning to work.
    Warmly, Deb

  8. I can't believe summer is gone already either. Christmas will be here before we know it !

  9. All the work days seem the same to me. I always find myself anticipating a weekend.

    Enjoy your next two weeks.

  10. I think this summer is one of the fastest ones ever! But then I always hear that time goes faster the older you get. Does that me that I'm 'older'? Enjoy your next couple of weeks.

  11. It was a fast summer....I love that bench... very cute..
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  12. I know just what you mean, Kathy! I tend to get a lot more done if I have a lot to do. Unless the job seems overwhelming, and then I just don't get anything done!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer. Bring lots of tissues when you drop your baby off at school. :)

    Love the photo!

  13. The summer has gone by quickly but I'm sure ready for fall. The heat just wipes out all my energy.

    I know what you mean about work. I seem to get more done when I'm on a schedule than when I'm left on my own.

    Enjoy your last two weeks of freedom!


  14. Oh my gosh Kathy, I feel EXACTLY the same way as you! I have been walking aroung here (being very lazy I might add), wondering where the summer has gone!! AND, I hate how lazy I have been!! I need to be FORCED to get up early and get things done!! September second will be here so fast. And then I will cry because I miss my boys and being lazy, lolol!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer!
    Big Hugs,

  15. Kathy it has been so long. I am dropping by to see what has been up.
    A busy lady. It has been the same at my place.

  16. Just thinking of you taking your baby to school makes a big lump come up in my throat. I so remember, like it was yesterday, when my little boy went off to college and I thought life would NEVER, EVER be the same...of course, it was ok after I got used to it and he wasn't too far away that he couldn't come home on weekends. The only thing, he met a GIRL, got married in his last yr of college so he really never came back to LIVE at home. BUT, they did move here close.....
    I am having a hard time letting go of summer....I just didn't get to enjoy enuf of it. Oh, but I will enjoy winter this hurting, can do more things....soooo looking forward to CHRISTMAS!!
    love, bj

  17. It all went by so very fast didn't it?
    I know this is a bittersweet time for you with college fqst approaching. You take all the time you need...we will be here when you can get back.
    LOVE the photo on here and LOVE my newest heart! Your tags are just so sweet and beautiful too. Thank you SO much for including these. I have added them to my kitchen chandy! I need to take pictures of it for you to see.

    Stay well and enjoy the last days of Summer.


  18. It looks to me like you have been doing quite a bit this summer. Certainly, inspirational. I am anxious to hear more about your move and decorating. Well, I know where to find you!

    Oh happy day!

  19. Kathy

    And I always wonder why JAn & Feb do not go as fast as July and AUG, right??

  20. I used to have summers off too, and all that unstructerd time was not good! I was constantly putting off "till tomorrow". It will be hard to start back to work for you, but after a few days the routein will settle in and I think you'll actually feel better!

  21. Just think! Before you know it we'll be cleaning up gift wrap from the floor and packing away ornaments!

  22. You are so right! This summer went by so fast. Even though here in NC we still will have summer weather really through September. I am trying to enjoy the moment and not even think of fall.....

  23. Hi Kathy,
    It's hard to believe summer is almost over.. enjoy your remaining days of summer.


  24. hi Kathy, summer has just flown by...and I can't believe this year is half over...enjoy the rest of your summer hoilday....hugs, Linda

  25. Kathy, every time I see an advertisement about going back to school, I turn the channel. I love summer when my girls are home and it feels just like when they were little. I love summer, it gives us a chance to just stop for a while. Have a wonderful week. P.S. I am just glancing down at your collage of awards. I like this idea. Karen

  26. I feel as if the days just speed by and I don't get enough done. Why do we always feel like we have to get a lot done? I wish to sit and enjoy the summer days while they are still here just enjoy! They will be gone before you know it.

  27. I go back to work on Sept. 2nd too. Sigh.

  28. Summer has flown by. It's a bit sad, isn't it.

    I love the bench in the photo!



Thank you for taking the time to say hello :)
