It’s sunny, thank God, and, at 10:30 in the morning, the temperature has already exceeded the high of yesterday. I will be getting out later.
I’m still having a hard time adjusting to the time change, or, more specifically, the light change. Although I’m glad of sunny mornings, it’s the long sunny nights of summer that I really miss this time of year. Never a morning person, I start to wake up and feel active somewhere around mid-morning, and start feeling the tug to get outside around mid-afternoon. With the sun setting at 5:00 or so, the afternoons are nowhere near long enough for me. I’m already having to remind myself that the solstice is in a few weeks’ time, and the days will gradually start to get longer. But they won’t be long enough until summer.
I’ve also been pricing SAD lights, because, if the past weekend is any indication, I’ll be needing some supplemental light this winter. I’m not going through this most disliked season being depressed–or any more depressed than I have to be–and bitchy for lack of sunlight. If I can’t be somewhere sunnier, I’ll do my best to make my own until my sunshine comes back to me.
Happy Wednesday, all–make it a great day!
