This is the week the daylight drops to save morning light. I know some of you are early morning people and want the light then, but I despise the darkness at five in the afternoon. Every cell in my body shudders when the lights dim.
I'm prepared, though. My sunlamp is now on my desk and I'm planning to work in front of it an hour a day.
Along with the daylight drop, I begin my yearly diet to lose ten pounds. I begin before the holidays to keep me mindful of what I put in my mouth. I lose the same ten pounds at the end of every year, but that's so much better than gaining another ten.
This year, my granddaughter, Rian, is my dieting buddy. We weigh in Monday mornings and report in to each other. Intimidating to have a nineteen-year-old dieting bud.
My neighbor, Paula, sent me four veggie slush recipes. I'm giving that a go instead of the Optifast, which is my usual diet, but expensive.
Winter's coming. Ooooh, dark, overcast, winter. Much scarier than any Halloween ghoul.
Are you ready for it?
