DST Sucks

I hate Daylight Saving Time. And I feel for livestock who don’t understand why they have to wait an hour longer to be fed. Same thing for pets. Same for babies and toddlers. They all get set in a routine and twice a year their routine gets tossed out the window. And for what?

I woke up at 6:25 this morning…and realized we hadn’t changed the clocks last night, which meant it was 7:25 and Brad should have been up almost an hour earlier. I woke him up and he hit the ground running, got dressed and out the door and picked up two of the four grandchildren for church. Rachel and Jacob stayed home. I think they both needed more sleep. Oddly enough, I couldn’t go back to sleep after Brad left so I stayed up and puttered around the house.

I ended up napping from 2:30 to 5:30. It’s 9:20 now and I don’t think I’ll have any problem getting to sleep later. I worked on my knitting and played a couple of games online. We watched the new Lone Star Law episode this evening and I really wish the producers would tone down the guitar music. It takes away from the dialog and half the time you can’t hear what the wardens are saying while the screaming guitar music is playing. They have some older reruns playing now so I’ll find something else to watch.

I came across a new show today on Acorn TV: The Chelsea Detective with Adrian Scarborough as DI Max Arnold. I was watching it when Brad got home with lunch. It’s not bad, but we didn’t rewind from the beginning since it was almost over when he came in. I’d give it another watch sometime and we’ll keep an eye out for new episodes. It’s always fun seeing familiar faces in new shows. Frances Barber plays DI Arnold’s aunt.

I found a Midsomer Murders episode on Pluto TV to watch, The House in the Woods. That should last me until bedtime and I’ll work on my socks for awhile before it’s time for a hot shower.

Have a blessed Sunday night, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
