daylight savings


The query ride continues and spring remains just out of reach… two yearnings of mine are, as of yet, unfulfilled. Ah, but I have hope and to aid that hope toward possibility, I have researched more agents and stocked up on wild bird seed. When that request comes through, I want to fling open the windows and hear those songbirds sing! lol.

Until then, I write. I plot and I de-clutter my house.

Daylight savings screwed me out of a few days, but I have to say, I’m kinda likin’ it now. 🙂 The days feel less dreary. The darker mornings are tough but the cats make sure I stumble through them regardless how early it still seems to be. I feed those insistent little creatures, then get on with the day… enjoying the extra hour of daylight when, just a week ago, I would have been feeling as sleepy as the sun settling in the night sky.

The crocuses are peeking through the hard earth, and grape hyacinth greens are standing tall in proud little groups. Soon, my garden will be filled with beautiful purple and yellow spring flowers and the windows in my house will be open to balmy breezes and warm-weather sounds.

Yes. I’m in love with Spring. It invigorates me, excites me, makes me want to get up and DO. We’ll be taking our bikes to the park for lunch and lessons again soon. We’ll be enjoying our tiny yard, fresh air and the company of friends.

Though funds are tight for us and everyone else, there’s one thing we can count on and that’s the newness,  the hope, the fresh-start feeling spring seems to bring.
