After Sabbath Evening Thoughts
Ahhh, now I have time for myself with MP my shower gal gone for the rest of the weekend. The snow has begun to fall as soon as she got here or while she was traveling from place to place – my place – and Bing and I can snuggle up under the comfy blanket my dad’s wife and daughter – my sister – made for me one year for Christmas. I have been watching TV and reading a book. I am reading John Kellerman’s book titled The Clinic for a couple of days now and at first I thought the book was going to be a dud and I would return it to the community room library but it has become a good read. With the snow outside falling and Bing and I inside the apartment where it is nice and warm sure makes this December night fair and pleasant enough. Not a lot to watch on TV tonight, though so that is where the book reading has come in.
Even though my body is still not used to it getting dark so early in the evening before 6 PM I do have to admit that I am staying up a little later than I have done so in the weeks to turning back time an hour now. I personally thought that I was going to suffer through this entire winter with the dreaded blahs of early dark hours but that seems to have ironed itself out with me in mind slowly but definitely surely. Why not read a good book and then turn out the lights for the night and go to bed or sleep? It makes the darkness seem less threatening each night until we spring forward our clocks again in the spring and summer months. That has seemed to help enough for me to live a normal life.
Now with Sabbath over for the weekend I am going to shut up shop, turn the lights out, watch some TV and get ready for sleep. It has been a very good day and tomorrow will come soon enough. God has given me another day to enjoy with friends and family. As the new week begins I have plans on Wednesday with my Arkansas parents and maybe my sister KLK as well. She works hard and she might not get the day off to be here for our Christmas gathering. Who knows? I won’t get my hopes up too high because she does work hard and does a great job being a store manager for Target.
