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.

    That all sounds so beautiful. Don’t knock it. Here in England we are still gripped by the North East wind (just off Siberia) We won’t be warm ’till May.

    Hey Pazzer1 – totally not knocking our beautiful weather. I lived in Chicago and Kansas, so I know what real cold weather feels like. I’ll take sunshine and palm trees over a chilly white Christmas – any year!
