August Means For Me…..
The month of August is here and we practically are now within the halfway time mark of summer. The days are slowly getting shorter, the heat wave is still ongoing though there’ll be sprurts of random showers in between and summer activities to celebrate the season.
A sign that autumn is coming is with the start of back-to-school sales with the stores hoping to entice all parents to part with their paychecks this early so as to stock up on school supplies,fall clothes,etc. I wonder if the kids’ mindset are already on back-to-school mode at all? Nah. I bet you that they’re still enjoying their summer .
Another sign of upcoming fall weather is the changing of the colors of the leaves but it’s still quite early yet for that to happen,mon ami. When it does, it’s a sight to behold, I assure you.
Thirdly, there’ll be a gradual nipping of the air intermixed with the heat until you really finally notice it. As soon as the BER months(Sept,Oct,Nove,Dec) come, the nippy air will be full blast in intensity as it nears the end of the year.
August also means for me the yearly observance of the deaths of 2 celebrities (Marilyn Monroe–Aug. 5 and Elvis Presley– Aug. 16) during this month. Both of them are very interesting people who have made a big impact in the entertainment world.
Take each day at a time and enjoy every moment of it.
