Goodbye Flies


One thing I wont miss about summer is flies! With everyone going in and out here we get a few pesky flies! And I can never find my fly swatter when I need it. And I hate swatting them on one of my windows especially when they make such a mess when you swat them! yuck. And I cant stand it when they get near any food, you never know where they have been with their fly feet before they got here. I think of them rubbing those tiny little feet and I just want to throw up.

Another thing I wont miss is misquitoes, another little pest that you dont know where its been before it bites you...like was it on someone with aids? Or hepatitus ? And bees were really bad here this year. Thank goodness I didnt get bit, you never know anymore if one bites you if your gonna have one of those reactions and croak right on the spot.

I will miss the sunshiney days though, and the warm weather. Hearing the birds singing, sitting on my deck in the evenings, cooking out during the day, the hum of the air conditioner keeping the house cool. Walking around in my bare feet. Sitting on my front porch at night, talking to everyone who walks past. Hearing the lawn mower and cutting the grass, drinking an ice cold beer after cutting the grass. I will especially miss swimming in my pool, just floating around listening to music.

What are some of the things you will miss about summer?

I'll miss the spontaneous barbeques with friends, and going barefoot, but I won't miss the heat. Sorry, but it's true. I love fall. I would be happy if it was crispy and bright like this all year round. Perfect!

Gary said...

I love this post. You made me feel like I was there with you on your deck, along with all those flies, mosquitos and bees. :)

Cindra can have the fall - my ideal weather would be to live in flip flops year round!

Now those flies...I use to worry about where their dirty little feet had been -but that was before I saw THE FLY. Now you have to know that they are 'vomiting' on everything they land on, to disolve it and eat it...ewww!!

I think I'll just miss the warmth of the sunshine, walking around in a tshirt. I love every season and that one rolls into the next. Its a reminder especially now that time does go on, with spring, the renewal of hope and life, fall and winter, snuggling in to reflect of whats passed and to rejuvinate yourself to come out with a bang in the spring...

I'm with Jackie, I will miss my flip flops. Watching the fish in the pond, kick ball with the grandgirls, concerts at the garden of roses, fresh tomatos every night, the smell of blooming honeysuckle.... we live in Ohio, why?

Michelle said...

Mimi said...

I will miss everything about summer except humidity. I hate it I can not breathe when it is humid. Plus I tend to get a bit of seasonla depression in the winter so I will miss the sunshine. I hate mosquitoes too! I know bugs serve a purpose but I can not figure them or ticks out! I hate them!
