carpe diem

August 18, 2013

So after a few weeks of cool weather, it’s summer again.  The problem with summer in Ontario is that it is impossible to predict the weather.  Some years we have no rain (like last summer), so years it is cool for weeks in the middle (like this year), some years we get a hot and humid stretch in September just when everyone thinks the summer is over.  And the reason this is a problem for us, is that for many of us, we don’t have the ability to seize the day.  We live in a culture/society where most things are booked and planned well in advance.  We book our vacations weeks ahead, we make plans and hope the weather fits the plans, we have jobs that mean we can’t just hang out in the sun when it shines,  the list goes on and on.  It’s rather unfortunate that our desire for structure and predictability makes it challenging to fully embrace a beautiful summer weekend.  I don’t have any solutions or tips for this problem, but they say acknowledging a problem is the first step.

Yarn Strands: two blue

And yep I’ve been knitting every day, even when I don’t blog, so the scarf is all caught up.
