You Know It's Spring When...

      You know it's spring when you get up to cook breakfast and you don't have to turn the lights on! This morning when I came out to the kitchen  the room was light and there was no need to turn on lights. What a treat! The sun rose at 7:01 and tonight it sets at 6:29 so we get about 11  1/2 hours of sunlight.

      Now I will enjoy this treat for only four more days as the time changes to daylight savings time. Then I will be making breakfast in the dark for a few weeks. When the time does change we will instantly get long evenings. So next week the sun will set between 7:35 and 7:40. It will be very pleasant for evening walks from now on.

    So it doesn't matter what end we get the daylight on it still means the days are getting longer.


  1. Yes, I agree, Red. I am enjoying the early light but will also enjoy the late sunlight once we get to Sunday. Spring is definitely right around the corner!

  2. Hi Red,
    Hope you are having a good day. I like seeing the extra hours of daylight - morning or night. With the birds singing early in the morning now, it makes it nice to get up and out of bed.

  3. Length of day increases rapidly at this time of year so it really doesn't matter if I have a few more days of making breakfast in the dark.

  4. It's finally warm enough to have the windows open so I can hear the morning birds.
    Every day is a good day!!! We just have to make our days good. I see too many people making their days bad and I feel sorry for them.
