Hunkering down for Winter

It's that time of year again when one does not venture outside as frequently, and as excitedly as in the warmer months. With the exception of snowshoeing, and hopefully skiing this winter, that describes me to a T. I find myself already tired of the short days and long nights, and they've only just begun. With the sun setting before 5 o'clock, and rising around 7:30, that's just over 9 hours of daylight. I'm always tired, and feeling sluggish.

So, to remedy that, I joined a gym this morning. I used to be a gym junkie back in Missoula, for spurts at a time, and find that I need to get back into that habit. Tonight will be my first time in well over two months, and I'm so excited! I've found a nice little gym about 2 miles from my apartment, and it just so happens that my boyfriend goes there as well, so I'll have a workout buddy some of the time. Besides going to the gym, I should also be taking Twist for daily walks, but sometimes he just doesn't want to go, especially if it is dark outside, so that leaves morning and lunchtime walks, which will get more difficult as we get busier here at work.

I need to take advantage of the long nights, besides going to bed at 9; what I need to do is resume my work on the Diamond course, and take the test. Perhaps that will be my goal for the next couple of days. As well as starting to design again. My associates and new friends here in Bozeman all adore my wine charms that I made and think I should make more for the influx of people that will come to town in the coming months. So much to do, and really, so much time to do it in!

I'm already in "hibernation mode" too - I swear I am part bear.

Sounds like you are enjoying Bozeman! Have you been to the CatEye? mmmm mimosas... And I'm sure you have been to Norris... truly water of the gods.

Wow, kinda wish I was there! Take care!
