Day Light Savings Time

I'm not a big fan of daylight savings time - especially this time of the year. That whole "spring forward" thing irks me. So when Miss Gwendoline decided it was time to get up this morning, I was not a happy camper. I always feel like all the things I plan to do on this day will fall behind. And at 7 am it was still dark. I was grumpy putting on my walking shoes and taking G&G out for their walk. I was grumpy dragging out a warm coat (will Winter ever quit?). I was grumpy opening the door thinking about all I had to do.

Then something wonderful happened. It wasn't really that dark out. In fact dawn was pushing itself to light our way. It wasn't really that cold out - a little ice from yesterday's rain - but not really that bad. And I could hear the birds every where. Living outside of town in a wooded area has its benefits. All kinds of birds were calling each other - you know, the calls you get first thing on a "SPRING" morning. It was just what I needed to hear. In fact G&G and I took a longer walk then planned. Yes Winter is finally losing it's grip and yes Spring will come. Don't get me wrong - I still don't like DST, but if it is a sign of things to come then I guess that's okay with me.....

  1. Well, after all of the rain last night and with the warm breeze this afternoon, I decided to get my college spring breaker to come out of the basement and help me put away all of my snowmen, sleds, and ski winter yard decorations. So bring on Spring. Leslie
