I was planning out about an hour of my time this evening and feeling a bit cranky from my day. I really think losing an hour of time just felt awkward; leading to a cranky feeling inside. As I made my plans to buy new makeup sponges, fold and sort 1 basket of laundry, water my plants, purge/organize/clean my small makeup collection, and walk my dogs the cranks started to fade away a little bit. I had an hour where I knew no one needed me but the real fading started to happen when I realized if I worked fast I could walk my dogs at twilight just before 8pm.
I love to be outside walking or running at this time. The neighborhood is often settling in, bringing a sense of stillness. The sky is changing colors right before my eyes. I take the same one mile loop in the morning and evening. Tonight I walked a little quicker to catch the sky on the way back in the background over a small pond. When we stopped here for a break, I noticed a star or two peaking out shimmering within the extra hours of daylight. Maybe they are celebrating too.
