I am going to miss summer. I know all the heat is not good for the environment, but I really enjoy the warm weather. As I write this in mid-August, the sun has not come up yet when I arrive at work and soon enough it will be dark when I go home. Fall is nice too, but nothing beats reclining on the couch in the sun next to an open window with a good book and an icy beverage.
