Spring Forward

Daylight Savings is killer to anybody working on a graveyard shift.

I am not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep. I am also dreading more sunlight shining at my bedtime. Last Spring, I remember smelling BBQ wafting over the neighbors, kids screaming and everyone enjoying their non-Vampire lifestyles. I’m grateful for investments in blackout curtains, earplugs and cocktails.

Still, I’m happy to welcome back warmer weather, flowers blooming and other signs of Spring.

One way to celebrate the season: exploring fresh veggies and tasty products at a farm. Today – Capay Organic Farms is holding an Open House. According to Edible Sacramento – folks are hiking around the farm, making lemonade and enjoying live music. It’s also free :)

I’m also looking forward to seeing Spring bloom at the U.C. Davis Arboretum.

Sacramento meteorologists say we should expect more wet weather this week.
Sigh.

My future garden could use the water. But rainy weather is a pain when I’m trying to stay awake on Eastbound I-80.

My solution: drinking plenty of water and singing along with my iTunes playlist. Good times.
