Shifted Seasons

Happy weekend, everyone!

Even though for some of us, our school term lessons may have been over a week or two ago, there’s something about the first week of June that screams: SUMMER!

The seasons to me are a delicious gift from God – I love them. It always throws me off a little though that (in our part of the world) Spring isn’t technically over until the end of June and Summer doesn’t end until the end of September.

The weather, tells us the seasons are:

  • Summer = July, August, September
  • Fall = October, November, December (technically we celebrate Christmas only 4 days after Winter begins)
  • Winter = January, February, March
  • Spring = April, May, June

The school year tells our brains they are:

  • Summer = June, July, August
  • Fall = September, October, November
  • Winter = December, January, February
  • Spring = March, April, May

I always feel slightly off mentally- almost like miss the last month of every season. Do you ever feel like that as well? Maybe I’m just strange! Ha!

Anyhoo…

Here’s some good stuff for you this week. Take it or leave it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Talk later!
