Extra Hours in the Day

I know Daylight Savings time is hard to get used to, but I absolutely love the extra time outside!

Before I started running and cycling, Winter was my favorite season. Not anymore! I cannot wait to run while the sun is coming up and bike without 14 layers of clothes. I am sick and tired of freezing to death and I long to feel my fingers and nose again.  I love that I can come home and play outside with the kids for hours before bedtime and not be confined in the house.  Yesterday, we cleaned out the sandbox and played until the beautiful sky turned pink.


Since I live on a farm, the extra daylight also gives me more time to get my outside chores completed.  I know some of you don’t understand this, so use your imagination, but it is no fun to feed animals wearing an ill fitting headlamp in the cold dark.

I know in September I will write a post about how much I love the Fall (my true favorite season) and the cooler weather, but right now I am ready for Spring and Summer.  I need a change of temperatures and some green on the trees.

Do you love or hate Daylight Savings time?


  1. What a beautiful sunset! I love that it stays lighter longer, but I don’t like that it’s dark outside now when I wake up in the morning.

What do you think?
