14°C, 12°, 10°, 8°, 6°. Each morning has been down by 2 degrees for the past week and it's been a real chore of opening my eyelids and keeping them open. Getting out of bed is another thing altogether, and I suspect that it'll only get worse as the early predawn light becomes even less. Ugh. I find myself feeling tired all the time and know it has a lot to do with the weather change. Less light, less heat, less spunk so to speak. Too bad that it doesn't get me off the hook for walking the dogs. It can be 0° out and they don't care (the westie at least), they demand their walks! I tried to shoot some photos today but with two dogs on leashes...all I got was a picture of a very healthy patch of wild mint - not sure if it's the one called nepetella - growing on the side of the road. We passed a small fire that someone had built to burn leaves, but after I heard the familiar pop! pop! pop!, I knew then it was both leaves, twigs and chestnuts. Fortunately we were out of range...I've never heard of anyone being injured from a flying chestnut, but there's always a first for everything!
Today's average: 13°C / 55°F
