A Little Preparation

T-minus four days until Daylight Savings Time, people. FOUR days. Four days to brainstorm alllll the crazy and wild things I’ll be able to do with more evening sunlight. Maybe I’ll buy some sort of anyone-can-keep-you-alive type of plant and place it near a window! OR I’ll purchase an outdoor grille {this sure got expensive} and spend my evenings grilling chicken along the snowbank! OR maybe I’ll finally be able to stay awake past 8pm (seriously, you guys. once the sun goes down, I go down…)! The possibilities are endless!

Of course, here in Minneapolis, more sunlight does not necessarily mean warmer weather. We had ourselves a tiny snow-mageddon yesterday, which was both beautiful and depressing. Maybe I’ll spend my sunnier evenings staring out the window into the snowy abyss that is Minnesota…dreaming about bright greens, bold flowers, tacky lawn chairs, and other springtime things….

Or maybe I’ll just buy a plant.

That’ll have to do, Pig.

I want your ideas. Are you ready for spring? For Daylight Savings? For more evening sunlight? WHAT will you do with all these longer days?!

    Love that sweater! And while I love daylight savings…what I don’t love is how much darker it is early in the morning, it’s so nice and bright out now i hate going backwards..
