Today was still another round of autumnal bliss from start to finish.
I loved that long-anticipated, earlier start to my day, thanks to returning to Standard Time.
Yippee for that!
Now, going forward, our sunrise will be fairly steady, not straying by a full minute per day, like we’ve experienced in recent months. In fact, I was curious just how long before the sunrise goes in reverse and begins rising earlier daily – it is January 14th. That’s a pleasant factoid from www.sunrisesunset.com to cheer you, and to tuck away for a brutally cold and snowy day in January.
Today, while cutting down the rosebushes for the Winter, I was surprised to see so many huge rose hips and there were still dozens of blooms on each rose. In the front yard, while raking leaves, in between those crumpled-up, crimson-colored maple leaves, I found a healthy dandelion. It looked a little out of place, just plunked down in the middle of the front lawn, a healthy and happy spot of bright yellow.
We couldn’t have asked for a sunnier Sunday; the bonus was that extra hour to while away in whatever manner we wanted … hope you put your “found” time to good use.
