Moody Blues

I don't know what else it could be......I haven't been able to come up with any witty blog topics, I am content one minute, a raving hormonal wreck the next. Maybe its summer; I am ready for it to be over. Its hot and the yard and garden are looking rather grim. I wish I could say those cone flowers were mine; but mine didn't bloom. These were from a North Carolina trip 2 weeks ago. They temporarily made me feel happy; they tempted me with fall. But the mood returns too quickly. Restlessness, loneliness, boredom.

I do find joy in this beautiful part of the country,
but it also makes where I live pale in comparison. I find it harder and harder to suffer through the heat and the $200 power bills, with each passing year. I imagine if I lived where it was cold, I would pine away for tropical heat waves of the south. the grass is always greener, as they say.
I am blessed with what I have...why is it I always want something I can't have. Why can't I be happy with what I have and who I am.
When will autumn be here?

I think you have a common symptom right now. We all are ready for some cooler weather.

As for your visit in October...I suspect there will be lots of color to be seen then. We're driving up higher in the mountains next week, so I will have some idea of the color at the +4,000 feet areas.

I know what you mean where the weather is concerned. I'm pretty sure we live in the same state, and this area's incessant heat, regardless of the time of year, really bugs me.

Why can't we have defined seasons?

I think I will settle in the North.

So far as the mood swings are concerned, there I can empathize, too; I've been teetering back and forth on depression's precipice for a while now, something that I'll soon post about.

The best thing to do is stay busy, interact with people, and get out of the house.

Our summer was unseasonably cooler than the norm. Now that September is here, the sun is finally shining and it is warm, bordering on hot. Finally ... a touch of summer.

I too go through periods where I feel that life would be better in a different climate.. usually I long for the warmth..especially come January. Sometimes it is hard to bloom where we are planted. :-)

The cold isn't all that great. I could do without five months of it.

I think we're all getting a bit discontented... :)

fall is a rough time for me, as well. for years I have felt blue around late august, I think it goes back to the whole back to school thing...

these carolina summers are HOT, but the winters are SOO much nicer than the ones up north. I hope you feel lighter soon.
