Time Change

Well, the time has changed again. Just when I was getting adjusted to it. I have never understood the purpose of daylight savings time. I think it all started with farmers but I could be wrong. 

We can’t change the time the sun comes up and goes down but we can change the clock time of everyone on earth and call it a day. 

I do not like the shorter days, but then again who wants a long day of Winter, right? So I will not argue there.

Once I get home from work, it’s already getting dark. We have dinner and me and Nick try to get a walk in by 6:00. 

My walks look like this......

It’s spooky around my neighborhood at night. A lot kids are often out and up to no good. I was a nervous wreck during this evening walk. There was a high school ball game going on up the road and noises echoed over the trees. I was jumpy at every headlight and person I saw coming from the distance. 

I guess until the days start getting longer, I will be doing my walks on the treadmill. 


  1. I don't like the time change either, wish they would leave it at this time!
    I don't get out much at night, stay safe.

  2. I have to agree, I believe they should leave well enough alone.

  3. That is one thing I liked about Arizona, they do not switch. Hawaii doesn't follow it either. I wish other states would opt out...
    Anyway, yeah walking at dusk and after is no fun...

  4. You are absolutely right, Lisa. I can remember when I was a kid growing up on the farm that it made my dad happy. It was started to give the farmers more field time. But, there aren't many small time farmers left anymore and the big farms work 24 hours round the clock. xo Diana

  5. Don't you love it getting dark by 5?

  6. i like the mornings with the time change but not the evenings. stay safe at night when you walk.
