I still have detrashing to do after my trip, and this is my first day off in 7 days, so I am busy finishing up a ton of laundry (how can one person create so much?!)--and yes, I will actually fold it all and put it away today. I have a horrible habit of putting it in laundry baskets and walking down to the basement to pick through for clean clothes to wear to work--everyday.

I did use the leaf blower yesterday to create a ginormous mound of leaves in my back yard for the city to pick up in a few days. I am a lawn person who waits until everything is down before raking up the leaves. Why spend every other day out in the yard, when I can just do it all in one shot? My forearms and hands are feeling it today. If it gets windy today, I will be pissed.

I also ran yesterday for the first time in over a week. Just simply didn't have time before then, and it was such a beautiful day! I managed 2 miles and my body was happy, but in shock. I don't have any races planned, and nothing much planned for the winter except to keep running some miles every week (mostly on the treadmill) and working out at the gym to build some muscle. My goal is to burn off enough calories so that I can still eat the good stuff with no guilt!
How is everyone coping with the hour turn back? I am still adjusting. I keep thinking it's so much later in the early evening--it's getting dark here by 5 pm. I just makes me want to build a cocoon and sleep. And eat. And read. Not good when you have lots to do. Today is "makin' liquer" day at my house! Limoncello production starts today. Heading off to the store to buy mucho lemons and begin the juicing. See, basements are good for something--a cool dark place to let the booze mature. As long as the creature under the stairs leaves it alone--and folds my laundry--I will be a happy camper.
