We aren’t even into the full-swing of summer. My granddaughter hasn’t put a hole in her wading pool that has to be patched yet, and alas, last week was the summer solstice.
The longest day this year was also a full moon, called a Strawberry or Algonquin moon. (This has to do with the beginning of strawberry picking season.) The Old Farmer’s Almanac has a great primer on the solstice if you wish to brush up.
As I watched the news stories on the day and how long it was, two things came to mind: 1. The days will now start getting shorter. I know, only a few seconds at-a-time, at first, but I know it’s still going on–like digestion–even if I can’t see it.
2. The really BIG news:
SCHOOL SUPPLIES WILL BE IN STORES SOON!
Everything is a two-edged sword.
