Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The cold has finally arrived here, if only at night. Somehow, even when it's in the 80s by day, the knowledge that a sweater would be needed at midnight changes one's relation to the day. As embarrassing as it is to admit, I keep getting the urge to hibernate. That will pass, in a week or two. Right now, though, with the energy loss that followed the election adding to the usual effect that the change of seasons has on me, I am finding it difficult to stay awake. I've started reading The Lord of the Rings aloud to Skylar right now and noted, upon reading of the hobbits' misadventures in the Old Forest, that the urge to sleep that besets them is eerily like my own. I'm hoping Tom Bombadil gets here before it's too late.

<3 Tom Bombadill.

I'm fully ready to hibernate. Though it can't happen for about a week, it will after that.

Regarding 80s during the day, the shade is still cool. There's reprieve.

I have no heat at my new place, so I was a little worried I'd need to run propane heaters all over the place all the time, but to my surprise, I've only needed to run a tiny little electric heater in my bedroom for a few hours at night. I don't know if this place just keeps the heat in from the day, or if I'm really developing a tolerance for the cold.
I was out last night in only a t-shirt and shorts, so it could be I'm finally getting tough.
Oh, and I made myself a big batch of Jambalaya in the ol' crockpot, and some cornbread yesterday. The cool weather is a great excuse to get fat.
