It’s kind of a present to myself, really, these last two blogs I’ve added to my life. Run-a-go-go and Write-a-go-go, they’re the carrots I’ve dangled in front of my nose, and in order to move forward with my goals, I click, and LO AND BEHOLD someone else has blogged, and they tell me what they’re doing, and in doing so, they encourage me to keep going. Little miracles, every time I turn the computer on. I love, love, love it.
It’s kind of always like that, though, ain’t it? The computer is a miracle.
So is this weather! And the light! The time change! How much do we heart the time change, people? Did you know it was a congressional decision driven by money? It means $100,000,000 more in golf clubs and greens fees alone. $300,000,000 more in barbeques and charcoal. We can’t even fathom how much money the candy industry poured into changing the dates, since they’ve been lobbying for it for decades now — Halloween will have an extra hour of light this year!
I have to say, I approve of these tax dollars at work. Day before yesterday I left work at 6pm, drove home, changed, got the dog and met my sister at the lake, where we ran our almost-three miles and then I went home and it was STILL LIGHT. Yesterday I went home and sat on the porch swing and read and it was STILL LIGHT. It was a perfect 72 degrees out there, with a breeze, and the sound of the kids on the football field across the creek, and the dogs lying on their sides on the porch….. The best.
Remind me to tell you about the cars! I keep forgetting, and it requires pictures, and I keep blogging from work, where the pictures aren’t.
*My happiness with the time change is helped that I get up for work at 4:30am, so it is ALWAYS dark, so my mornings haven’t changed a bit.
