Summer is ending...

Hello:

I was up before the sunrise. I am trying to train myself to be on my school wake up/sleep schedule.  I really really really want to work out before school every day.  I know that I will not work out after school.  I have tried and tried to do this, and it just never happens.

I have been getting up around 5 am to practice this schedule, then heading out to the gym to ride the exercise bike for 30 - 40 minutes.  This last week I had various new teacher training workshops, so I would come home, shower, eat, pack my lunch, then spin if I had enough time.

I was able to finish spinning my Easter Egg Dyed fiber from last April. 

Muffin tends to wake me up at 10 minutes to 5 every morning asking to go outside.  I am trying to make myself get up when that happens.  Usually, I lie back down, then start saying to myself, "O, just get up..."  Today, I got right up, got dressed for the gym, took that photo, then headed out. 

The gym was dark.  It doesn't open until 7 am on Saturdays.  O well.  I was able to enjoy that beautiful sunrise.

As the earth heads towards the other side of the sun, the days will continue to get shorter and shorter and I will soon be able to watch the sun rise when I get HOME from working out instead of before I leave.

Neither Muffin nor I like the Spring Forward from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time.  I love the Fall Back to Standard Time.  I do not think Muffin will react well.  If I leave for the gym and she is still sleeping, she will need to wake up Doc to be left out.

She will be happy to do that.

Peace,
