I love that it is staying lighter longer in the evenings. A month ago it would be almost dark now at 4:30. This morning at eight, the full moon was still quite visible in the northwest and a beautiful streaky pink sky covered the southeast. It was so truly beautiful! I wanted to be outside walking but had to be somewhere and had a ride. I have a friend coming for a visit for a few days and she loves to walk so I'm happy to know I'll put a few miles on.
There was one aspect of country living that has bothered me for the twenty-four years I've lived out here. If you don't feel like cooking supper, too bad, you still have to cook supper. There are no pizza parlors nearby. We have a restaurant in the neighbourhood but it is closed for the season. More than not wanting to cook is the fact that I want pizza and I don't want to make it. Oh well, I just have to bite the bullet.
Marc Broussard did great covers of some old soul songs and this, Come In From the Cold. I had his version of Al Green's great song, Love and Happiness back in September. Cold to Colder is a song by Sasha Dobson that fits with the weather earlier this week. I love her song, Spring Is Just Around The Corner that I've had up a couple of times.
Now if that's true, it's time for walking.
