    Animals are not on the same clock their humans are. lol

    Unpopular opinion I know but since the long, hot days of spring & summer depress me, I am so glad for the shorter days. Been waiting for this since March.

      Hi Cynthia, it’s great to see you here. Yes, animals have their own time, for sure. Luckily, I am an early bird and my husband is a night owl, so between the two of us, there is usually someone available to take care of our fur babies.

      Speaking of which, our little Australian Koolie dog is making her wishes known. I live to serve, lol.

        Thank you!! I do read your blog often, although I don’t comment much. ❀

        Don't they though?!

        That works out nicely for you & hubby!

        LOL Of course you do! Not that you'd have it any other way!

        Along those lines, my lovely girl, Molly is sitting beside me giving me that look that says "Where the **** is my dinner!?" lol She's so demure & lady like until it comes to food. Then, all bets are off. lol

    I can’t say I’m with you on that one. I hate it getting dark early and was hoping Ga. would change that like they’ve been talking about for 2-3 years.

      I know the Senate voted unanimously a few months ago, to end the time change. I was hoping the House would pass it into law, but apparently they could not agree. From what I understand, it’s not a partisan issue, the differences are based on what part of the country the representatives are from. I’m with you, Sue, I don’t like this time change.

    My little ten pound ball of fur wakes me aat 5:00 every morning. Since she has no concept of “falling back”, I guess she’ll wake me at 4:00 tomorrow morning. Man!

    Thanks for the reminder, Linda. I would have shown up at church at the wrong time. Going to change the clocks now.

      I remember one spring morning, many years ago, when I was determined to get my family out of the house on time to go to Sunday school. We had been going to the worship service every Sunday, but we had never attended any of the Sunday school classes, which started an hour before the worship service.

      We were surprised when we arrived at church, to find that the Sunday school classes were over. The ‘spring forward’ time change had happened the night before, so we were right on time… for the worship service!

        I’ve done it a few times in my life both directions. I’ve arrived an hour after Sunday school, in the spring but I’ve also done it in the fall when we turn clocks back and I’ve arrived to an empty parking lot wondering where everyone is until I remember––I forgot to reset my clocks.

        Thanks to you today I arrived on schedule! πŸ˜ƒ

    I JUST saw this! I used to get notifications that you posted… I don’t know what happened! πŸ€” In any case, it’s good to see a post from you!

      Thanks, Paul. The same thing has happened to me, not getting notifications for many of the blogs I follow. I don’t know if it’s a WP glitch, or if I am doing something wrong. But it’s great to see a comment from you! I pray that you and your family are doing well.

    Long-time SAD victim here. Sigh. The days do get shorter anyway, so the shock of the clock change eventually wears off.

    I’m the loon you see standing with my face up to the sun in the middle of January! Also pump up the D3.

    I keep saying I’m going to move to the Equator. . .

    Oh yes your animals will tell you when they are ready. My cats wake me up every morning at the same time. Thanks for sharing πŸ‘

    I am a little late responding here, but better late than never. I always appreciate this time change. Many people do not. It seems natural to me that it gets dark earlier in the evening for a couple of months. Imagine living near the North Pole and not seeing daylight for months on end?

      Hi, Mary! I lived in Maine for about five years. In the winter months, the sun came up so late and set so early, it was almost like not having any sun at all. I like Maine, but I do enjoy the sunshine. Cool, dark evenings are nice though, I agree.
