Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes a day or two in advance of this post going up. (I’ll eventually get to actually writing on Saturdays.) For now, though, I’m setting my timer, pre-writing my post and scheduling it to go up so my fine blog friends can link up on Saturday mornings. Or Sunday, if that’s easier for you.
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
I’m in another “official” training season. it feels odd, but at the same time, it feels routine. I tend to always get sick early on in training, and I happened to be sick the first full week. So maybe I got that out of the way?
My half marathon is in November, which seems so far away. And then I look at my calendar and it’s three months away. I think my entire training schedule is only 15 weeks. Soon I’ll be able to count on two hands how many weeks until the elusive race day.
The corn maze next to our house has been cut. It’s interesting to watch how fast the corn grows, and how easy it is for them to cut the maze. It usually opens around Labor Day weekend and we’ve been every year the past 4 years (I think it’s been 4 years.) Even the toddler knows where the corn maze is, and every time we walk up there, he asks about pumpkins.
Fall is going to be here before we know it. I have no idea where the past year has gone. Where did summer go?
I do love fall, though. It’s my birthday and wedding anniversary. We do a lot of celebrating. I love the changing of the leaves, the cooler air (though this summer has been crazy cool.) I love visiting my alma mater in the fall – and this year I’m lucky enough that I WORK there. Which still seems surreal to me.
It’s a good time of year. The beginning of August, and then leading into September. I just hope August takes its time. There’s no need to rush, right?
