No, this is not a new way to curb eating. I am typing at the computer at the same time my fellow is outside in the dark putting up the Christmas lights.
The important part is the "in the dark", as we have sunset around 4:15pm and it is now 7:44pm. The is D-A-R-K.
He will be on a ladder and he doesn't want any assistance.
If I sit in here, I feel it is wrong. If I go out there, I may say or do the incorrect thing... so I am between a rock and a hard place.
This could wait until Saturday is the sunshine, but tonight we had trouble constructing chairs from a box and they are going back to the store tomorrow morning... unassembled.
So now it 'light night' to work off the frustration.
sigh. I'm going outside to watch.

Three guys pass away on Christmas Eve and are met by St. Peter.
St. Peter says, "In honor of the season, you must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas."
The first man fumbles through his pockets and pulls out two lighters. He holds them up proudly and flicks them on.
"What do they symbolize?" asks St. Peter.
"Ah! You may pass through the Pearly Gates."
The second man fumbles through his pockets and pulls out a couple sets of keys. He holds them up proudly and shakes them.
"What do they symbolize?" inquires St. Peter.
"Ah! You may pass through the pearly gates!"
The third man fumbles desperately through his pockets, finally pulling out a skimpy pair of silky woman's panties. He holds them up proudly.
Puzzled, St. Peter asks, "What do they symbolize?"

I would like to wish all my Spark friends a very happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend. You may be at home, you may get out visiting... whatever you end up doing, I hope you enjoy the beginning of the holiday season.
Up here in Canada, we celebrated Thanksgiving last month. Our harvest is earlier, so the tradition was decided on as an October holiday.
I will be thinking of your gettogethers and the sharing of family stories. If you are spending this time alone, plan to meditate on things you are thankful for.
Don't make it 'all about the food'. That gets us into trouble. You shouldn't deprive yourself of anything, but plan to keep an eye on the portions control. It can be a fun time of celebrating without stuffing too much down the ol' hatch.
May God bless you and yours this Thanksgiving!

Am I the only one out here that is having her own personal summer? Right now I feel extremely sweaty and I'm only sitting at a computer typing.
My forehead is moist; upper lip, neck, underarms and back... all have a humidity level that could rival my morning shower!
I have reduced my weight, lowered my use of salt, trimmed back the caffeine and, OK, tonight I tried a super Yellow Curry sauce over a small portion of lean pork chop---YUM-MY!
I've been told about curtailing my spice intake if I want to remain dry and 'normal coloured' in the face. No more spices???
When a hot flash hits, I look like an embarrassed tomato!
If you've never read about menopause or Nature's introduction to it-- perimenopause, let me share the statistics with you. Any time around the average age of 47, women can expect a reduction of hormones. This unstable and very erratic physiological manifistation can last for 10 years! (Don't assume that only estrogen is lacking. We women can have differing levels of progesterone too.)
Self medicating can really get you out of balance if you don't find out which hormone is out of whack for you.
So, I guess I'll go change into something cotton or perspiration-wicking, put on the walking shoes and go for a bit of a hike. If I'm going to blush for no reason, I might as well let the wind buffet my face. I'll pass it off as wind burn!
