Ready or not here it comes, the annual disruption of your body's clock known as Daylight Saving Time. I detest DST, it throws off bedtime, mealtimes, milking schedules, school schedules and I definitely don't cotton to anything that robs me of sleep. So this year we decided that our strategy is going to be no strategy, we simply aren't going to change our clocks. We couldn't come up with a single good reason to, we aren't in society enough to make it worth the disruption to ourselves, so we will keep "slow time". Mr. G will leave for work at 4 instead of 5 and he'll be home by 9 instead of 10. That's nice! So with that decision made I could turn to other pressing matters like finishing off syrup and dyeing Asa's wool soaker. It was the white one that he had on in the amber teething necklace picture. I like white and everything, but it looked dingy in a hurry so I dyed it with walnut hulls and it changed to a beautiful, non-toxic, golden brown. Mmm, I love brown. :-)
But back to the syrup. This year doesn't look like it's going to turn out much better than last year. The optimal sap flowing conditions are days above freezing and nights below freezing, instead this year has been eons of Winter and boom! 60 degree days. The weather man says cooler nights ahead so perhaps all is not lost. We do have seeds started indoors and that's cheerful and we did get the yard cleaned up today so that's good too!
I am still going to do the "ask me no questions I'll tell you no lies" (ha ha) meme but I haven't gotten around to it yet. It seems like I had more to say but I'm having a hard time remembering what it was....... anyway, have a lovely weekend!
