Just thought I should remind you Daylight-saving time begins three weeks early this year, on Sunday, March 11, and lasts one week longer than normal, ending Nov. 4.

Chick a boom, chick a boom, don't ya just love it?

I love the longer days' evenings.  It is a wonderful awakening from the winter hibernation, a reward for being patient through the short days.  It it the time for rejuvenating the body, heart and soul.  Eating fresh vegetables, our health improving from all the added benefits of the summer food fest.  Yes, bring on the long daylight hours.  Best of the best day.  Cindi

Well, I guess I'm the Daylight Savings Time party pooper. I don't like it, mainly because of the 'fall behind' time change.  It just makes winter all the more dark.  It doesn't save as much energy as they're saying, what many don't remember is we did this back in the early 70's and rescinded it because, at least around here, in the more northerly states, kids were standing in the dark waiting for schoolbuses.  Not a good situation.  They also found that - whodathunkit - people used their lights preparing for those buses, or getting ready for work.  Geniuses!  I hope they go back to the regular April/October schedule.  Or just get rid of it completely.

For the first day of Daylight savings time, A.K.A. energy savings time change, we have thunderstorms. Very dark skies so we have to turn on the lights.

Jerry, now that is interesting.  Today, first day of DST, we have had rain non-stop (actually since yesterday), and it has been coming down like nothing on this earth.  Now and then there is a part of my yard that makes a lake when we have rain like this.  Rarely does this every happen here, maybe once a year.  We are in the rainforest, that is absolutely fact, but usually it rains, lets up, rains, not this non-stop, drenching precipitation.  I will post a picture.  So I am sitting here, the rain is noisy.  It was so noisy actually, that it intimidated me and I left my greenhouse to come up to the little bit more quiet of my house.  Now that is loud, let me tell you.  Well, I guess the rain is good, but now I have to go and backwash so much water out of my pool.  It is almost overflowing.  BUT, it is going to have to wait until I get a break in the rain.  the rain is still not letting up, so the longer it rains, the deeper this puddle will get. 
The temperature now at 5:30 P.M. is 13 celsius, 55 F.

The picture of my husband with the loppers in hand was taken last week, Wednesday or so.  That day it was 16 celsius, now that was the t-shirt weather for sure.  We were pretty hot working in the sunshine, pruning and dragging away the branches.  The trees that we were pruning offer a wonderful fence so that our neighbours on the north side are not visible.  Behind the pruned hemlocks, the salmon berry bushes grow up about 2 feet higher than these hemlocks, the salmon berry bushes will be growing foliage soon, and this foliage is quite dense from the ground to the top of the salmon berry shrubs.  The berries are very enticing to the robins and other birds that love the fruit, but in my eye they are too tasteless to bother with.  Besides, I learned long ago that bugs love to nestle inside these little fruit that resemble blackberry/raspberry fruit.  Too many times I have had that taste of bad bug in my mouth.  I discourage the kids to eat this fruit, except they pay no heed generally.  And it is actually kind of funny to see the look on their faces when they have not listened. 


Have the awesome and best of day.  Cindi


My husband, thank the heavens above that he is very tall.  I couldn't even begin to reach that high up.
