Daylight Savings Time

We are not really saving any daylight, right?  So why this artificial clock changing routine twice a year?  Worse yet, now I have several devices that change automatically and several that do not; the funny thing is even the auto setters can’t seem to agree on the exact time, each has a different minute setting.  I feel like the March Hare racing around trying to set clocks close to the same time as the others.  I imagine in some not too distant future my “smart” home will synchronize all the devices.  Until then I believe it is somewhere between 8:30 and 8:40 AM.  I do go by the earliest by the way.

Yesterday was successful on three fronts:

  • Overcoming fear to use a new tool and carry out a much-needed task – air compressor and tire inflation
  • Hard physical labor, reward – visual sense of accomplishment and physical exhaustion
  • Continuing routines that are healthy – food diary combined with healthful eating and  exercise/meditation

Today I am committing to a creativity day.  I’m bringing a large table up from the garage and will work on a couple of crafts projects and my Activity Box.  I realized that I have collected clippings and such for a variety of activities and then they go in a folder in the file cabinet and are instantly forgotten.  So I decided to decorate a plain file container that is fun and enticing and add these folders today and more I’m sure, as I go along:

  • Hikes
  • Gardening
  • Classes
  • Events

I hope a cheerful looking box sitting out where I can see it will remind me that I have loads of fun right at my fingertips!

Nature note: the Juncos are back!  I mistook their small bobbing black heads with tiny bright yellow beaks furiously bobbing up and down on the ground for butterflies last year when I first spotted them.  They arrive in big flocks and only stay a short while before heading higher into the mountains for the summer; but their sweet peeping and flurry of activity are a joy on an almost spring morning.
