Well, fall is officially here (according to the calendar. I don't know when the first official day of fall is, but to me it's with the start of September), so I could potentially say that now is the end of the summer of no TV. But, I think I'm going to wait. The weather is still hot and beautiful, so there's no point in turning back on the boob tube while it's still pleasant to be outside. I think I'll wait until it's cold and the thought of warm pajamas and an enthralling crime show are too enticing to resist. But I am starting to reflect on the summer, and I've decided it's been a success.
With the TV off,
my husband and I spent the summer going out, exploring our city, talking
long walks with the dog and training for a 5K. We went to Paris, which
was the vacation of a lifetime, and spent a lot more quality time
together at home. I read a lot of books, took a lot of naps and just
tried to soak in the heat of summer when it was around. Sadly, the lack
of TV did not inspire me to put anymore time into yard work, aside from
picking and eating all my raspberries and strawberries with big dollops
of whipped cream, but we did put in a driveway, so there's that.
point is, we really enjoyed our time off, and with winter approaching
we're looking forward to having the perfect excuse to snuggle up and
watch TV again. I think this could be an annual thing, so we have no excuse not to get the most we can out of summer. What about you? What did you get out of summer this year?
