It's So Dark.

I'm not even waiting until the last hour to get today's post written.

It's literally 5:55 PM.

And it's practically pitch black outside.

I mean. I can't see anything.

And as much as I love the cooler weather?

I am not a fan of DST.

I mean - I know - who is, right?

But man.

It's so so dreary when it's dark early.

It gives me a bit of a headache, and I want to turn on all of the lights in my house.

Which I sometimes do.

Which probably isn't the best scenario - but hey - I do what I want.

Remember that cute cat mug flashing the middle finger at y'all I shared a while back?

I think I might need one like that for myself this fall/winter season. Looks like that exact one might have sold out, but, well, I kinda still want and need something like it. Though how do you explain to your 10-year-old that the cat on your mug is flashing an eff off but you don't really mean it?

But look how cute it is ...

And I'm so in a happy cranky cat mode - because we've currently got a fourth addition to our feline brood. Meet our neighbor's cat, Brutus. He's living with us right now because - well - they've moved and we're not sure that anyone is coming back for him.

But he's so danged cute. Cuter than the mug, even. I mean, look. Poor sweet thing.

And there you have it. That's my weekend wrap-up for you.

I'm consistent, at least. I've been writing every day - even if today's just sort of a free write and I'll be damned - I'm not even going to create a title image for this post. Woo Hoo! Look at me go!

  1. Oh my gosh, I am so with you on daylight savings time! It's a royal pain and I think we need to put it on the ballot to end it forever. In the meantime, though, I NEED that coffee mug!

  2. DST can suck it. And poor, sweet Brutus! He's so lucky to have you in his life.

  3. I don't mind DST now that I'm an empty nester but it DID really tick me off when I hardly slept Saturday night, on the ONE FREAKING NIGHT each year when we get an extra hour AND I could have slept in. Sigh.
