Time (for a) Change!

 

This weekend we will be turning our clocks  ahead…”springing forward!” as they say. Well, I am ready. It has been a very cold winter, and we are running out of firewood for our wood stove. We have work to be done, cleaning up after a brutal ice storm at Christmas time…

There have been jokes passed around to entertain us, but the humor has worn thin by now.

I won’t mind a little morning darkness. Having the evenings brighter is already a big improvement.  But, as you can see, we are in need of COLOR! I have done my best to perk things up indoors. Along with groceries, tulips are a necessity.
