We are very different people- We are about a foot apart in height; she has lovely dark hair and I have red, and she's a lover of heat and many things related to the South. I am most definitely a Northerner and seek cold, and I love everything from the architecture here to the distinct lack of reptilian, flying and biting things that exist in those nether regions.
Despite that, she and I both (I think) have warm hearts and a fondness for family. We both keep blogs and adore people named Cavitt. And we are both funny, though most of her humor is actually funny and Grey often makes that "I'm fake laughing but you're not really funny" face when I make jokes. It's not funny if I have to explain my joke more than once. Sigh. I get a lot of pity laughter.

So there you have it. I'm not sure I really hate that the days are so short right now, but it does make me sleepy earlier. Last week in the evening, about 8:30, Grey asked me what I wanted to do that night. I suggested we take a nap before bed.
Unfortunately, I am good at baking things. I whipped up three batches of fudge for the holidays and hundreds of cookies. I ate a lot of them. And now, I have stopped. Maybe it is counterintuitive to have a season where I don't watch so closely what I eat. It's part of a cycle for me. I tend to weigh more in the winter and less in the summer. So I guess that's why this concept appears on both of my lists. Of course, the difference isn't awfully noticeable; it's maybe 5 pounds.
So yes, Grey has taken our dietary decisions in hand. Primarily, I come up with ideas and he does actual stuff. When I say "I'd like to eat vegan twice a week", I can hold to that but it will usually mean I'm eating Snickers bars and raw cauliflower that day with some fruit juice. And wine is vegan too. Maybe some chips? For Grey it's the creation of a brand new yummy, low-fat hummus with lots of olives and cumin and veggies and pita for dipping. Waaay better. Still, if you have a main course recipe you'd like to share that's vegan and yummy, let me know. It's salad night, but not vegan night tonight. I'm going to have some cheese on my salad to celebrate.
