Autumn is the time to put away the flip-flops and bring out the fall jackets. No more sunglasses for the next 9 months, they are replaced with scarves and gloves.
I realized my gloves were missing and figured I lost them last year or they were taken by glove gnomes (cousins to sock-gnomes), but then when I pulled out my fall jackets, there they were, stuffed in the pockets!
Yea! What a lovely surprise! I also left some used kleenex from last year in case I had a need to catch the same cold again. I decided to pass on that, but it’s nice to know how thoughtful I am to future me.
I had a spectacular fall on the ice yesterday. I’m talking a full-out comedy banana peel-type fall landing horizontally on the ice. The only thing missing was the Benny Hill theme as background music.
It’s mid-January and so far the score is Winter – 2, Heather -0, unless a defeat against winter would be a day I haven’t had to go outside but worn pajamas all day indoors drinking hot chocolate. Then the score is Winter – 2, Heather – 1.
Unfortunately, I don’t mean the music group…
It’s become even darker this week. I woke my youngest son up today who kept complaining that I was a horrible mother for making him eat breakfast during the night. I totally agree.
In two weeks we have the time change. When this happens, I will go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. Did I mention I work in a basement? Expect crazier posts as the winter season continues.
It’s already getting darker outside. It’s supposed to be gradual after the autumn equinox. Just a couple of minutes a day. LIES! It jumped an hour earlier just 2 days after the equinox.
In just a matter of days, it’s already become harder to wake up and we are all contemplating when to switch to winter coats. The trouble here is that once you switch to a winter coat, you won’t be wearing anything else for the next 6 months. I’m trying to hold out as long as possible. I’ve added knee socks, gloves and a scarf. Next week I might move to a hat.
