Daylight Savings Time

I love Daylight Saving Time! It has messed up my computer clock, my Outlook calendar and my TiVO but I couldn't care less. I am NOT a morning person... I am a night owl to the extreme. That being said, the sun coming up in the morning really bugs me. :-) Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it comes up every morning but I would much rather it not shine in my bedroom window so early and instead stay up a little later at night.

Over the past week or two I have been reaping the benefits of Daylight Saving Time starting three weeks earlier this year. When I get home from work the sun is still out. Brun and I can go for a walk or I can do things in the yard... or I could theoretically wash my car... but the coat of yellow pollen will tell you that hasn't happened.

In our neighborhood there is a nice little lake (really more of a pond) with lots of cute ducks and geese in it. When Brun and I take a walk we pass the ducks but Brun is usually oblivious to them. I enjoy them and so I wanted to share this picture of the ducks. I didn't take the photo but a friend using my camera lens snapped the shot and so I am borrowing it.

So I'm sorry to all of you who have to get up with the chickens (or before the chickens) when it is still dark outside. But this Alabama girl loves this time of year!

The sun is coming up later, but I have a few mockingbirds that sit outside my window. The are up EARLY! If you would like, I could send them to you!

I love that I can come home, eat dinner and still have time to play chase around the yard with Vader. Now, if only I could get it to stop raining so I could do all of that! :)
