Someone is Pulling the Shade Down

Every time I look out the window in the past half hour, it's darker. It's as though someone has pulled the shade down on the world. It seems strange to me that I was up well before daybreak and it looks like I'll be up long after night fall. It has been a good day, though. I did not go to the pool this morning. Two reasons - icy conditions and I wasn't feeling very good this morning, but it's passed. I did however, have my Bible study and the notifications finished by 6:30 AM. Dawn was just starting by then. I then spent the next several hours working on Thread of Evidence. I quit that shortly around noon. I watched three episodes of Downton Abbey. I could seriously binge watch that one until I've seen all six seasons. I started the first episode of Season 3. Now, I've come full circle. Darkness is about to set in and I'm here once again to be with all of you and find out how your day has gone. How did you spend your day? Were you here the whole day or involved in other activities? Thanks for reading.

I walked my property and hung more signs, took pictures. I drove to three different towns and ttwo counties to get answers I need to stop the nonsense in my woods. I got home way after dark.

I've only just got up but I think it is going to be really hot today so I'll probably spend quite a bit of time here.

@just4him I get up early most days during the week and feed my cat and do things I need to do and then come in this room and work at the computer. If I have to go out then do what I have and come home and back on the computer again.

That's what I do too. Though without a pet. I'm on the computer soon after I get up, get my first post posted before I head to the pool, then come back and myLot again.

@just4him Valerie, that is ok that you do not have a furry one. It is very nice in the early morning but too bad the jerk that lives above us is also up and causing lots of trouble.

Glad you're feeling better and you stayed off the icy roads. Never here whole days. Though it'd be easy too. Only here off and on each day.

Yes, it would be very easy to stay here the whole day, and I've done it, but I didn't get much writing done when I did.

@Courtlynn A promise I made to myself was to write every day, and so far I've only had one day I haven't, so I'm doing good. I even got two chapters edited before I left this morning.

I am still sick so I am not getting as much done. It is also hard for me to get used to this getting dark earlier. At my age, I would like to have a husband who comes home to me, and we have dinner....and relax and read, etc. Life does not always go our way.

No, it doesn't. I'd love to have a husband to come home to me too. Such is not my lot in life at this time.

@just4him I hope so, but I don't think I will have my treatment this Monday. I will have a Tuesday Schedule I think.

Typical Saturday doing online work. Nothing unusual. The weather is chilly but pleasant. Working in my bedroom is comfortable because I can watch TV and work at the same time.

@just4him We rented a carpet cleaner and cleaned the floors Friday, and now they look so nice.

I'm sure it does. It always amazes me how great a carpet looks when it is cleaned.

I love finding new things in the movies and shows I watch. It makes it fun to watch them over again. I'm glad you had a quiet day.

You got away from the computer and got some fresh air. That's a good thing. Feeding your imagination is also a good thing.
