Too Much of a Good Thing

By this time of year, I am done with humidity, and done with those lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer. Too much ice cream, too hot to exercise, too much lax in the schedule!  It was a great summer filled with lots of fun and food and friends, but its time to get back on track.  Time to get out the jeans and find out just how much damage you did to your waistline (I already know the answer to that question). There’s something about starting a new school year that puts clarity in your life, even if you don’t have kids.  It’s a time to clean out drawers and closets, clean up the house and yard, and get out the crockpot for making soups and stews.  I know a lot of folks don’t want to think about winter, and I’m not particularly fond of shoveling snow, but there is something cleansing about fall.  Preparing to survive, if you will, another cold and brutal winter.  Getting your ducks in a row and stocking the shelves.  Getting back into the routine -- it brings order to life.
