At The Moment
Am I the only one happy here with the Daylight Savings Time change? I've been reminding kids to get up for the last 30 minutes.
It is so easy around here at the moment. Few conflicts, not many issues bubbling up. Rain coming in tomorrow, I'm hauling off my lawn tractor to the repair shop, not wanting to even spend those very few minutes doing so, in my truck, and out of today's sunshine. I'd so rather be digging and planting.
A reader, Jocelyn, tells me that their back roads are snow plowed with the resulting snow banks being higher than the school bus. Unfathomable to me, yet I remind myself how miserable our sweltering summers would seem to those unaccustomed to breathing in hot, wet air.
Now, mid 70s today, is such an easy time to get the hardest of the outside work done, now while it's still cool enough to function, and I'm not totally bathed in sweat. Being scorched by the sun, hotter than blue blazes, all that terminology doesn't even begin to do justice to our being so deep-fried by the Southern sun.
I don't even mind the hot days, being this productive just makes me incredibly happy.
Having kids in a great mood, makes me even happier.
