daylight savings time


the clocks have jumped ahead
and suddenly my world feels lighter
literally...
i am bundled in less layers
wearing sunglasses on the way home from work
instead of having to put the headlights on...
i am thinking about redecorating and gardens
and fresh tomatoes and barbeques....
planning stone walkways
and to fix the clothesline...
i exercised last night for the first time in months...
{thanks to the energy that also allowed me to stay up
past seven o clock}

my heart is lighter, too...
and my mind...
got extended another six months for my job,
the kids are on march break
and my husband's business will be coming into
busy season soon...

we are full of plans and motions,
stops and gos,
ready and waiting to spring.

The longer days and sunshine are just what I've needed too. It's good to be warm.

The extra daylight brings plenty of hope and adrenaline, doesn't it? Enjoy!

Congratulations on the contract extension. I do love spring. It was good to hear from you again. I've been missing you.

YES! Spring is always (for me at least) about motion and movement. Love this and so happy to hear your feeling lighter.
