Change in the Air
A Bevy of Misfortune

Spring Forward


I've never really understood the point of Daylight Savings Time.  I mean, I know the history and theory behind it, but I just don't . . . get it.  Because we have an extra hour of daylight in the evening, sure.  (And that's nice.)  But it's only because we stole it from the morning.  (And that's helpful how?)

Anyway.  I'll adjust in no time at all!


Now that we have that "extra" hour of daylight (not really) (because we just stole it from the morning), Carole asks us what we're going to do with it.  (Which, of course, is complicated by the fact that there is still a whole lot of snow out there.)  (But it's melting fast this week.)  

Here's what I'll be doing with my "extra" daylight:

  1. Driving Tom crazy with my exclamations like, "I can't believe it's already 7:00!  It's so light out!"
  2. Countered, of course, with my early morning exclamations like, "How can it be 6:30?  It's so dark!"
  3. Thinking about using the grill again for dinner plans.  (Once the patio melts and the grill is accessible again.)
  4. Noticing how awfully dirty my windows are after the winter.
  5. Thinking about gardening.
  6. Dreaming about gardening.
  7. Planning my garden.
  8. Seriously thinking about planting some greens and peas. (As soon as the patio melts enough that I can place some pots out there.)
  9. Enjoying expanded options for walking the dogs.  (Because I never walk them early in the day.)
  10. Feeling energized!  Because whatever you think of Daylight Savings Time, it is certainly energizing to have more daylight at the end of the day!

How about YOU?  What are you doing with "more daylight"?
