Indecisive nasty gals

westparkMoom, did you decide what you wanted to do today?

No. What do you want to do?

I won’t bore you with all the details. I was having this text message exchange with my mouse as I was shopping at the Plum Market this morning. We didn’t figure out what we were going to do at that time. We were both still thinking through our days. My day included some actual work.

We didn’t figger out what to do until Mouse actually got over here to the Landfill. Whaddya want to do? Whadda *you* wanna do? The choices were 1) drive down to the river and walk and 2) walk downtown and get a whine or something. We *finally* chose door #2. #1 would have involved a [short] drive down to the river and lots of people and dogs and probably bi-cyclists, etc. #2 was mostly neighborhood walking but did involve Miller Woods and West Park. And the Grizzly Peak, where we opted to sit at one of the bars, rather than outside. KW in particular is not crazy about sidewalk seating, especially when it is tightly sandwiched between the sidewalk and the street. It’s okay though, there were a lot of folks outside and maybe that allowed us to get a seat at the bar.

I am sorry that I cannot rant and rave about the return from Daylight Savings to Standard time. I dunno. It is now light when I return from my 0-skunk-30 walk but here it is 6:30 in the evening and pitch black. In a few weeks, it’ll be very dark on both ends of the day and then a few weeks after that, we will be heading onto the upward trend that leads to 10 o’clock sunsets in June. I do not have any issues with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I think that is because I get OUTSIDE every single blasted day. Is it dark? Is it light? Is it raining or snowing? Whatever. To be truthful, there are days that I have to FORCE myself to go outside, especially at 0-skunk-30 but also at other times. I ALWAYS feel better after I go outside, even if it if just for a few minutes. If it *is* dark, can you see the moon? Or Orion? Or Ursa Major? How do you feel after you have seen some of those celestial entities? I always feel really good.

Love y’all, KW

    My main issue with this time change is that I can’t get home in time to run every day in the light (or even dusk) That will change when I retire next year, so I guess I should just be patient! Not my best quality.
