How quickly time flies

The old adage is “Time flies.” I think this adage is probably in most languages. Russians and Ukrainians use it, and we most definitely use it in American speech.

It was just a few weeks ago, that my apartment still had the chill from a long winter lingering in it. Then I went to Kstan, where it was snowing (although not sticking) and cold the whole week I was there. It seems like only last week (and I think it may have been!) that I was still wearing a light jacket.

Well, the difference a few days make. Yesterday, when I stepped out of my apartment I could tell it was warming up. It got down right warm yesterday and again today, up in the 80’s.

I realized that we are less than a month away from the longest day of the year (June 21/22) and this will signal the quick descent into what will become winter again. Wow, time really does fly! And I’m not ready to think about putting on my coat again…at least not yet!
