Sunday Reflections…

The older I get, the tougher it gets to “Spring Forward”! I’m just plain torn when it comes to daylight savings time! I mean, I do love the longer daylight hours! But, it really only changes things as far as schedule goes… It doesn’t add any time to the day at all… It just adjusts the clock and the daily hours of business. Then it takes us several days to adjust to getting up an hour early… Is it worth the effort?

my morning coffee came an hour earlier this morning! But, good news is we will have Daylight till after 7pm now! Boom 💥

The silver lining is of course the longer daylight hours. It won’t be dark now till after 7pm! I do love evenings outside in the garden!

But now it’s time for breakfast! 🍳 🥞

Maybe we will celebrate with a late bbq 🍗 this evening 😊

Have a great Sunday!
