The dark days are ahead, the time of the year that seems endless. I went from wearing to capri pants and short sleeves to pulling sweatshirts and putting more blankets on the bed. I dug out my throw blankets and put them out. Even the dog has his own, which he burrows under when he gets really chilly. I have a fake gas fireplace (I call it fake because its more for looks than to heat anything) and I've been turning it on lately. Omega shifted around the position of the "wood" inside so it gives off a more realistic look.
It's the season of hot chocolate, candy, and all too soon, egg nog. I feel the year slipping away and unable to slow it down, or just make it pause. Sometimes I wish Omega had the power to tell the world to be still, just for a little while. To make it last longer, instead seemingly flying by with one day blending into the next. I find myself more and more saying, I wish this day could last forever, then the next day comes and I find myself saying it again. Yes, some days I wish to be over quickly, but that's just life I suppose and those are so few anyway.
