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.

OK. The College Basketball Season is now dead to me.

Thanks to my vampire schedule, I got to watch my Bears play and fail in Kansas City. All in the privacy of my own home. Where no one can hear me scream at the flat-screen TV.
It’s probably better that way.

We’re less than 24 hours away from Spring. I looking forward to spending more time outside.

I like checking out the blooming trees on my walks around downtown Sacramento. I also started my own veggie garden at home. I guess I can’t wait for the Farmer’s Market to open back up at Chavez Park. We’ll see if I have a green thumb or if I should be kept out of the yard.

Are you Twittering yet?
Then here’s another pre-Spring activity for you: meeting up with new people from social networking sites. Tonight in Roseville, the Boxing Donkey’s hosting the next Sactweetup. I wish I could go, but it’s past my bedtime. Sounds like the first Sactweetup had about a nice turnout.
