Is that a measuring cup?

This is not a current photo, but it’s still accurate. Fall is here and the sky is dark when I need to wake and dark when I need to stay awake. There are never enough hours in a day for all the things I need to do and want to do. I love the changing colors and how snug I feel in my socks, but my body overall struggles in the fall. My body wants to sleep and rest with all the other things getting ready for winter. I have even less energy for things that need to get done while also requiring more moments engaged in activities that give me the energy to do those things. I used to try to hide my measuring cup coffee mug mornings, finishing my coffee before video calls, hiding the evidence. A while back, a person on a call asked me, “Is that a measuring cup?” and I answered honestly that it was and I needed to catch up on dishes. The meeting went on as planned and the world continued to spin.
