Daylight Savings Time

Well, we turned our clocks back an hour last night and now the days are even shorter. I really hate this time of year! How do you cope with the shorter days? I try to do more stitching or crocheting, or just play in my beads and fibers. I'll pick out a project soon to start on New Year's Day. That's supposed to bring good luck, and it's always fun to start a new project! I try also to have as many lights on as I can once it gets dark. Today was a beautiful day! A clear blue sky - not a cloud in sight! It was windy, but not as cold as I thought it would be. Our days this coming week are supposed to be dry and sunny - we are still under a burn ban here. We desperately need rain! Our grass has been brown since August and hasn't had to be mowed since then either. How is it where you are? I know there are a lot of places worse than here and I hope they get the rain they need also.
Our November birthdays are almost over. One more in a week and then we're done till next year. Then it's time to get ready for Thanksgiving and then Christmas! Yikes! Are you ready for the holidays? I'm not! At least all the lights and pretty colors of Christmas will help keep the blahs away, I hope.
I hope all is well with you and yours!

  1. Hi Teri
    Yep, our weather in Northern Indiana is just about the same as yours. We are about 5" short on rainfall.

    I don't mind DST as much as I resent living in Eastern DST. Our county should really be Central time but it didn't work out that way. Thanks Mitch.

    Yep, I'm getting ready for the holidays also. I'm not sure what I will be making. I started an afghan, but I'm not sure about it now. I am thinking I might make a lap blanket from some of my fabric stash. I am also gearing up for the next years Bead Journal Project which begins in January. I lost momentum this year, but New Year/New Beginning!
