rocking horse

I smell spring

It's nice to leave work with the sun still up and arrive home while it's still light.

I hear cardinals singing, woodpeckers drumming, and chickadees calling. Geese are flying over in huge formations like cartoon bombers from World War II. Noisy too, though they don't sound like airplane prop engines. Gary spotted shoots coming up from the crocuses and daffodils today, and one of the horses is starting to shed.

The idiocy of daylight saving time returns in just a week. I really don't understand why they can't just leave it alone all year. Push it forward an hour if you insist, but quit hopping back and forth. Changing the starting and ending dates all the time only makes it worse.

Off to bed, I think. Still a bit early but it has been a long heavy week.
