Those long evenings

Did anyone else get dinner ready really late because they were halfway into a project at what felt like the middle of the afternoon, only to look up and see that it was 5:30 already, yikes!?

Me too.

Now comes my favorite part of the year. I love to be up when the sun is up, and I think I'm a pioneer farmer at heart. When it's dark, it feels like time to sleep. But these long evenings that will keep getting longer, they are perfect, especially if you are sitting on a porch with friends or beside a river while the sun slants across the water.

Springing forward like this keeps me up with my husband a little longer, too, since he is more like a raccoon or an opossum at heart. Nocturnal.
