2016-10-23 – Challenges, again

Woke up this morning with fierce stomach cramps that ranged from uncomfortable to painful. Wasn’t quite sure why, either.  Nothing I ate yesterday was outside the norm, I felt fine when I went to bed, I even got what I’d consider a good night’s rest.

Sunrise Stats!
First light: 7:07 AM
Sunrise: 7:37 AM
Daylight: 11 hrs, 35 min

But I woke up, and all I wanted to do was curl back up and do nothing.  Didn’t help that the house had gotten chilly overnight – I turned the heat off yesterday, since it was such a nice day.  Unfortunately, Jerry sometimes can’t be persuaded to close a door, any door, and I and forgot to turn the heat back on before going to sleep.

Couldn’t do that, though. So, cramping stomach and all, I got dressed and headed out.

Lanesboro yesterday was wonderful.  We explored the shops, found a place called Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center that I’m going to have to investigate more thoroughly.  Buuuuut… no fall colors.  They’d had a storm come through about half a week ago, which took most of the leaves down.  Sigh.

So in the pickup yesterday, since I couldn’t nap (darned sun kept finding my eyes), I paged ahead in my sunrise app.  I discovered that the 7:48 time of sunrise on October 31st, is the same minute as the sunrise will be on December the 31st for my last one.

I hope that made sense.  Doesn’t mean that sunrise will never get any later than 7:48, because it will.  But it isn’t going to move much during the last two months.
