Today I didn't give in. When I wanted to light the apple candles, I lit the beach ones instead. When I wanted to make a heavy, rich egg dish in the crock pot, I made a cold pasta salad instead. When I wanted to turn on the AC and plan for Christmas, I opened the windows and got hot and sticky cleaning. When I wanted to give in and focus more on tomorrow than today, I didn't. And so I was able to capture and enjoy a few moments of summer.
