As the sun sets earlier and earlier I am coming to the harsh reality that the days of summer are no longer on my side. School is back in session and I can see the slight singe of disappearing green on the trees. As each leaf gets darker, I lose a small piece of my soul. Truly, I hate cold and winter. It seriously messes with my psyche. True we have gorgeous Septembers and Octobers, but as the days grow shorter - I get grumpier.
