The days are getting shorter!

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Sun Nov 21, 2010 1:42 am

I think the days are getting shorter and it has nothing to do with moving the clocks around or winter coming when the naturally get shorter. I just do not get as much done anymore. So, the days are getting shorter. There must be only 16 hours in a day now instead of 24. Someone tried to tell me it wasn't that the days were shorter. It's because I'm getting older. That can't be right, can it? I will be 70 in January. I used to think that was old but now it's not so bad. If my knees weren't wearing out it would be a little better. I go outside and start doing things and before you know it, it is rest time. So, I make a cup of tea. You can't have a cup of tea without a snack of some kind, can you? I guess I could but I don't usually. Do you know any zero calorie snacks? I'm really trying hard to lose the extra weight I gained when I wasn't on the thyroid replacement medication. I'm doing pretty good but it's harder when you have too many snacks. We did well in the summer because there's vegetables and fruit and good fresh things. In the winter there is things like muffins and scones and homemade bread with butter and of course, homemade jelly. So, I go back out to work off the snack. I have the weeds and things under control in the backyard. I need to do some more work in the front. With the cooler weather, I've made some headway on it. We are in the process of putting up some fence, just wire fence, to keep our little dogs in the yard and those big dogs out of the yard. We still have a bit in the front along the driveway to do. dr is going to build a drive gate.
We bought some landscape timbers a few weeks ago. I want to put a flower bed at the end of the house along the driveway. Not sure yet what I will put in it. I'm hoping to have more flowers this next spring. With the moving and things I didn't get much planted this year.
It's a problem with too much digging so I'll put the landscape timbers in place and fill them with soil and I won't have to dig too much. Just loosen the dirt under what I add. I'm hoping that will be the case. Of course, we do have to build the flower beds.
Maybe I am getting old. It sounds like it might be a lot of work and a lot of rest periods and a lot of snacks. Then, I just might have to ride that darn exercise bike twice a day.

Oh my - if there is such a phenomenon as zero-calorie snacks please sign me up.
And think of the exercise bike as sitting down and not exercise!!
