Sunset watershed

sunsetI think that the true sunset watershed is when it is light enough that I can take a photo of the old Regenhouse on Crest Street on my way downtown to the Oscar Tango after work on a Friday. 111 to be exact. I have nothing but good memories of staying there when my fam schlepped down from the Yooperland to The Planet Ann Arbor. Mostly we traveled to go to a UMich football game but occasionally for a Bank Meeting. Football weekends were very much fun. Bank meetings not so much. Well, I was old enough by that time to be left with The Engineer and npJane at the dino-house for a few hours, where npJane was freaked out about the Tyrannosaur. She was about eight then. She is definitely not afraid of dinosaurs any more. And she is an *ace* at taking down xmas trees!

I schlepped over to the Plum Market after work this afternoon. Of course, that was not an unusual event. What was unusual about it was that it was light enough tonight that I managed that trek in my red Keen sandals (over tights and Smartwool socks). Meaning that I could see the potentially slippery spots and therefore avoid them or “ride” them. Again, this winter is not like last winter… … … Yet…

I am gonna guess that it’ll be light enough tomorrow afternoon that I’ll be able to capture the RegenHouse on my way down to the Oscar Tango. We’ll see…

This photooo is on my way back home from the Plum Market today.

    I am also noticing way more light. I can run later and don’t have to rush home from school. It’s definitely a positive to not have to wear my cap with lights on it. 🙂

    We also looked out at five-plus o’clock and said to each other—gee, look, there’s more light out later! (Not that that phrasing makes much sense when repeated; it did to us!)
