Saturday night when I go to bed I must remember to set my clocks ahead. If I forget, I am completely out of whack on Sunday. There's something about forgetting and needing to set the clocks in the morning- I'm all tangled up for the day.
So, I am leaving little reminders here and there so I don't forget.
I think that both of the time changes has it's own appeal according to that season. In the fall when we turn our clocks back, I'm always ready for earlier evenings. I light a few candles, turn on the candle lights in the windows, I start making hearty soups and enjoy evening fires. The holidays are ahead of us and there is a coziness about settling in for the fall and winter months to come.
Mother Nature prepares us nicely for this change- the one that will deliver longer days.
This is the time of year when you may plan an early dinner so you can take advantage of the extended daylight.
In our area of the northeast we've had a pretty mild winter. Not nearly the amount of snow that we've had in recent years and lately the daytime temperatures have been above normal.
Still, we welcome these time changes.
The ice on the lake is thin and it's fun to anticipate the date of 'ice-out'~
I think the Loons will be headed back soon.
