I get excited when August appears. And it's purely for selfish reasons. It marks the end of summer, it celebrates the appearance of my son on the face of the Earth and a reason to buy back to school supplies even when you don't have a child going back to school. And of course an opportunity to purchase a new Hello Kitty lunchbox.
Where July kept me housebound; August gives you little teases of cooler nights and breezy days. Sure the heat and humidity lingers; but they know they are loosing that battle and soon Autumn will make her glorious and welcomed appearance.
Do you do anything special in August? Let me know in the comments below.
