Why is it that the older we get the faster time goes by? The end of November is here and Christmas is less than a month away. Every year I make a promise to myself to finish my Christmas shopping by the end of November. To date, I have not been able to keep that promise.
Winter is here with daytime temperatures as low as -9C and nighttime temperatures as low as -18C. We got enough snow overnight for my husband to use his snow blower to clear the driveway and sidewalks. It was dark by 5:20 PM today. If I had a choice the powers that be would do away with the twice-yearly time changes.
The ups and downs of the temperature and the barometric pressure in November have played havoc with my poor old bones. The constant fatigue is overwhelming. When the pain and fatigue become too much I find myself taking a nap in the morning, in the afternoon and again after supper. Then the guilt sets in. I feel like I have wasted too many precious hours.
We celebrated our daughter’s 48th birthday at our house on November 11th. I made two roasters full of holupschi for supper that day something I had not done in years. On November 17th we met up with family members Doug, Dale, and Derrick. Dale and Derrick were out from Vancouver for a wedding. We met for coffee and had a lovely visit catching up on family news.
The ups and downs of the temperature and the barometric pressure this past month have played havoc with my poor old bones. The fatigue that plagues me every day is overwhelming. I take a nap midmorning, a nap in the afternoon and then another nap right after supper. Precious time is being wasted by these naps and I find myself consumed with guilt. It seems to be a never-ending struggle just to get up in the morning to face another day.
