The weather is really confusing me. I thought it was supposed to rain all the time? FOr the past week it has been foggy. It's sunny today, what the?!?! It's good for exercise though and really I am not complaining.
I couldn't believe how dark it was this morning! I was talking with the coffee gal and even asked how her night was going...purely by accident...it wa 7:30 a.m.
I have a friend who has his lights hooked up with a computer system so that the lights in his house gradually come on...they get brighter as it gets closer to time to get up. A couple of years ago when he got the program it was $300. I thought about doing it. Should look into it again.
I am enjoying life and living it. Isn't it about sliding into heaven with your body all beat up from enjoying life??
now I know why you asked about my lighthouse. . I'll go through Portland on my way to grants pass for thanksgiving. I can pick up art suplies there. Our biggest art suply place here in town is Walmart.
Hi MaryJO - I knew you had to be an Oregonian. Same lighthouse. Anyway, it is nice here on the coast this weekend. We have almost finished painting our house which desperately needed it. Just need a couple of more days of sunshine.
I'll be in Portland for the weekend at a photo workshop. I'm really looking forward to that and some shopping.

I have an east facing bedroom. I have the top 5" of the window uncovered (no one can see in from that point), and cover the lower part of the window. The "natural" light is wonderful. "natural", because I have street lights the peek through also.
Its starting to get dark earlier here. all I want to do is crawl in bed and sleep when it is dark. When I work nights I have to do that standing up because theres no beds at work except for the nurses station. LOL.

What is a "Dawn Simulator?" Sounds great! I really love the long warm days of summer, but I have a new house and I'm trying to learn to appreciate the earth's cycles again (I used to live on a farm, then went to an apartment!) k.

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance. It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn
I like it cooler, but not gray and rainy. The one who is really affected negatively is my husband...he gets downright hard to live with. He was born and raised in Medford and I think he will never outgrow the desire for warmer weather.

It's foolish to ask God to direct your steps, if you aren't willing to move your feet.

Yesterday morning, my husband got up before I did and made me coffee. This is extremely rare-I normally have to draaaaag him out of bed. I asked him why he was up so early and so damned cheerful. He said, "I think it's this weather. I'm SO happy that it's cooler now". I thought it was funny because so many people I talk to say that cooler fall and winter weather makes them lethargic and sometimes even downright depressed. Personally, I love the cooler weather, but I don't think it really affects my mood or overall disposition. What about you?
