It's only natural to anticipate the change of seasons. Human survival depends on preparing for upcoming seasons. One must gather wood and wool clothing for winter, sow seeds for spring, slim down for swimsuits in summer, and plan ahead for fall feasts. Or, adjust the thermostat accordingly, shop for a new swimsuit and buy whatever else you need from a super store.
My bare arms are itching to wear wool sweaters. My flip flop clad feet are ready for clogs. My hands ache to knit socks. My swimsuit is fading. I have a new umbrella just waiting to get wet. The fireplace begs to be gathered around. The oven is jealous of the barbecue. Just a few more months, I tell myself. You'll be ready for summer again by next spring. So much for living in the moment, I'm looking forward to the future.
