Spring Has Sprung

Hello Friends! 

We are decorating for spring but we haven’t quite been able to let Christmas and Valentine’s day go.

Spring is so incredibly close. My little kale plants are an indication. I am so excited for green I can hardly contain myself!


For those it applies to, don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour!

  1. Thanks for the clock reminder. I still have 3. which have to be reset manually.

    I usually don’t experience spring (very few plants die off in SoCal winter) but the neighbor butchered the honeysuckle that’s outside my bedroom window and watching it get new leaves has allowed me to experience the “spring rebirth” most places enjoy.

    1. Many parts of the U.S. have a bizzare custom of putting the clocks back one hour in the fall and putting them forward one hour in spring. This is used to have business hours when the sun is out.

      1. Bizarre indeed. I wonder how the country is able to work with so many time zones and now it gets even harder. Sometimes I wish the world was really flat. No time zone problems.

        1. But it’s so much more complicated… several years ago the gov’t changed the dates we recent clocks… so now they’re on one setting for only 4 months, reminding everyone how stupid it is. And some places, like Arizona, don’t participate, even though everywhere else in their timezone does. I have a weekly call with someone in AZ and rarely remember whether she’s an hour ahead or on the same schedule as me (just googled… hour ahead now; same time starting tomorrow).

          2 years ago, Calif voted to stop changing time but it will take ages (if ever) to enact due to needing federal approval.

          1. I see it is quite confusing. Some people in my country demand an additional time zone. I think it will cause confusion. But of course, they have their own views

  2. I am glad I’m not the only one who finds it hard to let Christmas go. I listen to carols anytime of year and I am still watching those cozy christmas movies. however, Its easier for me to let go of valentines day seeing that its my birthday and all, and while I am happy to be alive I always try to forget as quickly as possible that I have grown a year older! thanks for the reminder to reset my clock. have a bless day
