I Dislike DST

I hate DST. It's a puzzlement why we even observe it anymore -- though at the rate they're going (moving it earlier in spring and later in fall), it's going to meet in the middle anyway and then maybe we'll stop this nonsense.

Yet another reason to move to Arizona.

The weekend was pretty quiet. We didn't do much of anything. DH caught up on sleep (he misses A LOT during the week) and mostly just lazed around, something he seldom does. I did work on the website and cleaned house (organized the pantry, cleaned the school/craft room, washed our throw rugs) because maybe if I *do* spring cleaning, spring will come.

On my little indoor tomato plant (which I keep in our spare bedroom, Maria, because it gets the most sunlight in the winter), I have one little tomato. None of the other blossoms made fruit (yet) but I'm still excited for my one. I hope it survives! At least there won't be chipmunks around to eat it.

The snow is melting at a furious pace. About 1/4 of my lawn is actually exposed. Of course, the front of my house COOKS -- it get full sun all day (which makes life interesting in the summer) so I think my snow is melting a bit faster than most, at least out front.

I'm so itching for nicer weather.

I got a little writing done on "Now and Forever" (Maria Zannini reminded me that I hadn't been referring to it by title) the sequel to "Kitchen Matches". Not as much as I would have liked, since a direct result of DH lazing around meant he was home and wanted to interact with me.

Ah well... today is another day.


Your Inner Fruit Flavor is Pear

You are an idealistic soul. You're the type of person who still believes in changing the world.

You are compassionate and generous. You get joy from giving to others.

You feel deeply and freely. You don't put bounds or limitations on your thoughts.

You have a vivid imagination, and it's so deep that it's hard to express with words.

I'm not sure that's altogether me -- makes me sound WAY nicer than I am.

I hope you're able to get some writing done on "Now and Forever."

Have a great Monday.

I SO adore that quote at the top of your post about DST!

Yes, Arizona does not observe DST--except for the Navajo Nation, interestingly, in Northern Arizona. I'm glad I don't have to change my digital clocks and watch.

And I just read Kitchen Matches over the weekend.

You BETTER finish that sequel, or I'll have to go over there and chain you to your computer.

Loved Cori and her brothers. You could write a story about every brother in that family.

Great quote! I hate all the time changing too. I never get anything done on the weekends either, my husband insists I have a life away from the computer sometimes.

So glad you're making progress on Now and Forever. Way to go! Every bit of progress counts. :)

Hope you have a lovely Monday.

The lack of DST is one of the many things I miss about Arizona.

What a great idea. Write about each of her brothers.
loved the story and it can only get better from now on.

I really hate DST too. My body is feeling all discombobulated now.
