There is a whiff of change in the air. Since Friday evening all the humidity is gone, the air is much fresher. For the first time this summer in the City I needed a cardigan outside today. They are those pleasant first cooler days when we still have amazingly enjoyable days in the warm sun, but we also don’t drown in sweat anymore. We need neither our A.C. nor our fan to get a great night of sleep. The timing is appropriate – a week before Labor Day Weekend and a few days before I am officially back to work.
It is time to become all grown-up and serious again. And so we registered with a gym just around the corner today and even went there for exercise this noon. Alright, it took me about 10 minutes to find my exercise leggings in the bag of my dresser and I couldn’t find my favorite sports top at all, but I’ll slowly get there (to this realm where adults have it all together). I have also looked for my monthly planner since Tuesday, very unsuccessfully I must add. Surely, these are only hickups on my way back to post-summer routines and everyday life. Let’s see how next week will go. Tomorrow is my officially last day of summer vacation and then I am back to work. I am quite excited already to be honest.
