[I created this delicious Crock Pot Sweet Potato Chipotle Chili for Earth Fare!]

It’s just a fact of life, so there’s no real point to complain about it… but I’ll do it anyway and call it venting.

I HATE HOW DARK IT IS WHEN I GET OFF WORK IN THE WINTER.

In the summertime I head out of the office at 5 and it feels like I have ages to get stuff done before the sun goes down.

Walks! Shopping! Reading a book in the evening sunshine! You Name it! That extra sunlight makes room for so many after 5 o’clock activities.
