It's getting dark now, but not long ago I was out taking an evening stroll.
A robin high in a tree sang to the setting sun.
While at the same time the moon was already high in the clear sky.
There were glimpses of the Mountain in alpenglow over the housetops.
And the playground at the school was full of kids playing and happy voices.
This is what I love about Daylight Saving Time.
Because of my issues with sleep, I am never in a hurry to actually turn off the light and try to sleep. We have been reading well after midnight, which means we are not rising early enough to notice the darker mornings.
I did go for a 2.5 mile walk this morning over at the park.
And then this afternoon Tom found a few gardening jobs I could do, trimming pots out on the patio. It was great to be even a little bit useful, and soak up some sunshine at the same time.
Tom was busy digging. moving, and transplanting plants, trying to find places where they might be happier in the garden. He finished off the afternoon by mowing the lawn.
The good weather is expected to last through tomorrow. I'm going to try to prune the roses.
