My entire summer flew by without even being noticed.
The pandemic took front and center over the beauty of the season.
The pandemic had all the beaches closed in our area. The pools weren’t open and most of the public areas where I would have taken my children were also closed. I watched the boredom on their faces as the summer simply flew by. The schools were open, thanks to air purifiers being installed into the HVAC system. I was still wondering where summer had gone, and how fall had slipped by so quickly. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen when winter arrived. I looked at the calendar, knowing I should have had the furnace serviced more than a month ago. The furnace had been running for over a month now. We had some days when the temps headed up to sixty, but most of our days had been in the forties. The kids were outside, playing in the leaves and enjoying themselves. I picked up the phone and called the HVAC company. Although the furnace was running well now, I didn’t want any surprises when the cold weather hit. I wanted to make sure my kids would have plenty of warmth to keep them safe. I was going to need to wait a couple weeks before the HVAC tech would be able to get to the house, but I was okay with that. As quickly as the time was flying by, it would feel like it had only been a couple hours since I made the phone call.
