As I mentioned in my post last Thursday, I can be all over the board in terms of time. Usually around 11 or 12 I am getting a message from my stomach that it is time to eat something. (other days it is 8am, it really just varies)
This past Sunday we focused on “noon.” (No, your aren’t losing it. We haven’t posted the Sunday Photos: Noon post yet. But if you check back this coming Sunday….. we will) Whatever you call it – Noon, midday, break-time, lunchtime, 12 o’clock, it is just a number to me.
My body has been healing well and I was starting to get up around 7am. Suddenly I am exhausted again and sleeping until who knows what time. I understand that my body needs the rest and so I am not strict about the time or pushing myself to get up early. With that said, I am still exhausted by mid-day and therefore there is a nap in there somewhere. I usually try to push through noon and try to make it until 1-2pm. Anytime after that and it really messes up my nighttime sleeping.
Depending on the season, noon can be great. In the winter, the temps outside are perfect and I can be out there at anytime of day. In the summer, when I am feeling normal and healthy, I am up at day break to get some work down outside before it is sweltering hot and unbearable. Noon in the summer is an indoor, air conditioning on and fans a blowing time of day.
When I was out in the working world, I worked a few different shifts. if I was on the 5:45am – 2:15pm shift – noon meant my work day was almost over. If I was on the 2pm-10pm shift – noon meant that I better be thinking about getting ready for work.
Note: so much for trying to be organized. I jumped the gun and posted about “noon” before the post this coming Sunday. Maybe I should go out and get a watch watch with one of those calendar clipped on the band like my dad had!
Noon – what does it mean to you?
You can see what else I am up to over at Sincerely, Emily. The topics are varied, as I jump around from gardening to sewing to making bread or lotion and many things in between.
