Last day of summer

Today is the last day of summer. And a pretty crappy summer it has been.All those days I dreamt of spending at the beach…thwarted by the rains and the overcast weather. Or having to be at work on a nice fine and sunny day. Of course, as luck would have it, a sunny week tended to lead to a rainy weekend.

Not that I didn’t get any beach-love. I did. Just not enough.

Hoping autumn brings some warmish days where I can still enjoy the beach.

In other news, work has me sleepless on some nights and exhausted by the end of the day. Like I said before, be careful what you wish for. I wanted challenging. And now I worry about clients even after coming home. Whether they will be alive. Or safe. Plus I am lagging behind on reports thanks to having to deal with crises at work when I had slotted in the time to work on them. End result — work on the reports from home.

So yeah, still exhausted. Despite just having had a weekend.

I’m also wondering whether I should do NaBloPoMo next month. [Yes, I love to torture myself, don’t I?] But the reason I was thinking about this is that the topic is interesting: In a word. According to the email they send, this is what it involves

It’s meant to be both an inspiration and a challenge: you can choose a word (perhaps by going to either Save the Words or One Word) to build a post around, or you can try to find one word that sums up whatever’s going on in your life each day when you sit down to compose your post. You can talk about the power of words, your favorite words, or what happens when we’re at a loss for words. And naturally photobloggers are granted the right to gather up a thousand words and present them in the best daily images they can produce.

So yes, it’s very appealing to me. Except, given how I’ve felt over the last couple of weeks, I really doubt I will be able to blog every day.

I do apologise for not commenting on a number of blogs —- I do read you guys almost every dayΒ but I’m so tired I can’t be bothered to comment on a lot. Plus I realise I haven’t responded to comments on this blog for the last couple of posts. Will get to it soon.

So what’s been up with all of you?

Until next time,

    hey, i have done NaBloPoMo once and that was the most torturous month for me both professionally and personally. What with travel, number of deadlines and relatives visitng. i still completed and felt great.
    So do it!

    Summer is just coming here! πŸ™‚ I don’t visit the ebach here, but I get my fair share in Goa. Anyway, regarding NABloPoMo, I know for fact you don’t have to follow the theme or anything.
    Anyway, best of luck & take care πŸ™‚

    Y’know Mags…I didn’t really enjoy the Bombay summers…too humid. I used
    to love winter when in India…but now it’s probably my least favourite
    season here. I do like the idea of the theme for NaBloPoMo though…gives
    you something to go with than random stuff like in November. Although I
    guess, this month’s theme can be used for random ramblings as well I
    suppose! Maybe that’s why I like it…flexible with some prompts…

    I’m going to cave and do NaBloPoMo…thanks for the lovely compliment…good
    for my ego! =)
