i guess its that time of the year

its almost dark at 430 in the afternoon. that is depressing. my skin is starting to look like a crisp piece of notebook paper, pale as a ghost. not to mention that the cold is creeping further and further into my bones with each passing day. Like all good things, that pleasant, relaxing warm weather has left us for the time being, and it harsh cousin, the cold, has taken over the day to day operations. I’ve learning that you don’t mess with the cold. He can be very nasty, and has a unpleasant habit of calling on chilling winds and cold rain. The cold also strips the trees bare, and eliminates many of the signs of life that put smiles on our faces. This time of year takes its toll on me. It makes everything less exciting, and there is very little incentive to go outside and do some sort of activity. It makes me sad sometimes. If there is one thing that I take away from this time of year, it is the fact that there is no place to go now except up. In a little over a month, we will have reached the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. After that, little by little, the days will get longer, and I will get a little happier. Also, the best part of winter, the snow, usually treats us to a fantastic display in January and February. Once I get to there, it is clear sailing towards spring. I just have to persevere for now, and most importantly keep my extremedies warm
