Dying Summer...

I haven't posted here in awhile. I wish I could say I've been terribly busy and I suppose I was -- it just doesn't feel that way.
I (we) did a lot. There were BBQ's, parties, a trip to Vancouver BC, tons of fine dining (OK, dining), dancing, drinking in bars, a couple of trips to B-Town, etc. but somehow it feels like nothing really happened.
The change is already in the air, but there's a few weeks (hopefully) of good weather before it gets really cold. I guess that when you live in an era when the trees start blooming in February, winter is just a mild annoyance...well, to me anyway.
Nonetheless, I have some complex feelings about the fall. Knowing it's going to colder and darker makes me feel a little sad and wistful on one hand, while on the other, I look forward to eating lots of soup, lying under the heater at Mandy's and playing with Denali and coziness of one's own home...or bed.
I feel more energetic when it's cold...more focused. And once I'm over the SAD hump, happy to have something to look forward to.

Next week, Mandy and I go to PDX for the weekend. I haven't been to Portland in years...should be a lot of fun, even though I know I won't be able to get her to go to a strip club, heh.
