And now it's November and it's getting dark at 5:13pm and although I'm good with that now, I know there are lots of people out there who have trouble with the early dark. Admittedly, I might feel differently about it if I was working in an office all day and arrived in the dark and then left in the dark (which I did for awhile and am so glad to not be doing anymore), but since I'm able to get out during the day, I'm more than happy to light candles all over my living room and kitchen, turn on the fireplace, and eat a cozy dinner once all the homework is done. I love November. If you do work in an office and never get to see the sun, maybe see if you can take a quick walk around the building a couple times a day? I used to get up and do a short 5 minute walk outside once an hour when I was in an office. It kept my blood flowing, gave me a short break, and helped me to refocus on my work. Not to mention the valuable vitamin D and fresh air.
And so, I will try very hard to see, enjoy, and take a photo (or two or three) of the sunset, every day in November, no matter the weather. It'll be easier to do now that the sun goes down so early. When Tommy gets off the bus, we'll just hop on our skateboards/bikes/scooters and go for a little walk. By the time we get back it'll be getting dark and we'll get to enjoy the sunset. Sounds like a plan.
