I really, really detest this time of year. Oh, not because of the holidays but because the days are so short. With working outside the home, the sun is just coming up when I leave for work and setting when I return. I miss an entire day of light.
I feel bad because I'm having to rely on V and the boys to care for the chickens- It's never light for me to check for eggs or feed/water them. I went out with a flashlight to water the greenhouse this evening. BLAH!
I have been sure to take my Vitamin D every day. I never bother during the summer months because I am outside so much. In fact, my MD had my vitamin D level checked last year and was surprised that it was actually fine. So few people are able to have a good level naturally these days. But, I do take a supplement in the winter. I find that I have much more energy and focus when I do. And it's good for your mood as well.
Not much else going on. I've got a bit of hand sewing to finish this evening and maybe I'll cut out something new. We'll see. I'm rather impatiently waiting until Saturday when Justine comes home. I haven't seen her since August. That's a LONG time to miss my baby girl. Oh, we 'chat' on facebook or text on a regular basis but nothing like being able to hug her.
I just can't seem to get into the holiday spirit this year. No decorations have been put up yet (we're waiting to do the tree until Justine gets home) and I haven't done any holiday baking either. The weather finally decided to get cold- for a few days- but is now back into the 40's during the day and we haven't seen any snow at all. Who knows, with climate change, maybe we'll have a non-winter like last year. We'll see.
