My Favorite Time of Year....

This is probably my very favorite time of year.

Well, it will be as soon as it cools off somewhat. Almost 90 degrees at 8:00 PM.

In the next month, however, temperatures will cool off and the air will be crisp and cool in the mornings. In the afternoons we can go walk in the park without feeling like we're breathing through gauze.

Bicycle riding will be much more comfortable. Katydid and I have at least four organized bicycle rides coming up, two of which are overnighters. We're pretty much over sleeping in tents, however. Comfortable beds, internet, television, air conditioning. Roughing it has lost its charm. Sitting on a bicycle seat for 50 miles or so is rough enough anyway.

School will settle into a routine and I'll once again feel purposeful. (Is that an adjective that can refer to a person?) We'll soon figure out our new computer curriculum and perhaps even be able to explain to students how it works.

More importantly, however, within the next month baseball season and football season will overlap.

Life is good.

'breathing through gauze' is the most accurate description I've ever heard about August in Georgia.
