Oh no, lambikins, I wasn't calling you a winter bum (another reason I hate winter - the size of my bum increases exponentially with the decrease in temperature :crying). In fact, your downtime amounts to what I consider to be an insane amount of time as required of me by my bosses. It's just that I would really like to spent my winters baking and knitting and painting and sleeping until the sun actually comes up. It just seems like a more natural and healthy way to live - come oooonnnn, retirement.
And thanks for the booties :D. My feet are feeling more comfortable already.
The "more natural way to live"; that it is, that it is. In high season, I'm up at 4:00 am, ready by 5:00 am and at the job site or nursery by 6:00 am. Then, we usually eat one meal, around noon, and work until 5-7 pm, depending on the heat. Once "off", I'm either visiting nurseries, new clients, or devoting the remainder of the evening to paperwork, finally falling into bed by 9:00 pm. This goes on 7 days a week, until you either get sick and THAT shuts you down or you just say "NO!" and take a day off. This year, I went 38 days without a day off; my crew foreman went 56 days.

What a joy it is to wake up when your body tells you, rather than a crappy alarm clock! :)
Glad you liked the booties, Rattus! Mrs. Weasley taught me how to knit them.
(Gold Star for YOU if you catch the reference!) :star
Fall is definately my favorite season. All the new TV shows start, the kids go back to school, and the sun goes down earlier. I love to have my windows open a bit and feel the cool crisp air. On top of that add on pumpkins, falling leaves and beautiful sunsets.
