Awakening a Keen Observer

It's Coming!,,,

Grace and peace to you.
     It's coming....what? Monday, long week, important meeting, housecleaning-again, Lent,
    DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME     the 9th of a March!   Like the ides of March!  Et tu brutal!  

Yes changing clocks is brutal.   So, I'm trying to adjust early.  Starting my day earlier now .  Going to sleep earlier, (as if). Just making that shift .

And this morning I woke before my clock.   Can't say I'm really busting into the day tho.   Me and my puppy are still under the covers.   I am at least sitting up...

But it's kinda cool
   Thinking I'll just lie back for a moment and get warm.....

Maybe if I just closed my eyes for a minute I'll warm up faster....

Construction Zone

Oh my
This is the third morning in a row I've been awakened by construction just outside my bedroom window.    Seriously?  Must you start SO early?  They sing as they are working too.
   This same thing happened this time last year.  Same workers. Same pattern of activity. Same song!
The morning doves are nesting again in my pine tree.   Cook-cooo.  Sigh

      When I looked out there were some Robbins on the ground there too.  Spring. Can't be denied.

I have been trying to wake up earlier than usual so that when daylight savings time comes on a March 9th it won't be as much of a jolt to my system.   Somehow it's like missing a step when you are skipping.  You do remember skipping, right?

  But the seasons change.  And so must we change.  To freeze is to lose life.   And I'm not ready for that just yet.

   So find a way to celebrate the Spring!   The vernal equinox is March 20. The changing of the days.
Everyone knows can feel it in your very bones.

   Get ready.  How will you celebrate?
