Am I the only one that was surprised yesterday to realize that we turn the clocks back this weekend?
I can’t even begin to understand how the heck we’re already to the point of 5pm darkness around here. I hate this time of year. Really, I do. I get in a funk. I’m pretty sure there’s a name for that feeling.
Oh yeah, seasonal depression. I seriously think I might have it.
As if that wasn’t a rude enough awakening guess what else I discovered?
3 grey hairs. In the same spot. On the right side of my head.
I’ve always secretly laughed at those people with the awkwardly placed grey patches on their head wondering why the heck they don’t do something about it. Hair dye is cheap enough, you know?
I fear I may be becoming one of them and will soon elicit weird stares of my own.
What does any of this have to do with a pear banana smoothie?
Except that I needed something to cheer me up after those two incidents and my grilled cheese + pickle sandwich wasn’t as photogenic.
I’ll be outside enjoying the last “long” day of the year trying to build up my vitamin D stores for the winter.

Grey patches…weird or cool & quirky?
Does anyone else get the winter time blues? What are your coping mechanisms?
