Those time change adjustments.

Good talk is like good scenery-continuous,
yet constantly varying,
and full of the charm of novelty and surprise.

I love this view and it is so worth getting out of bed in the morning.

It turns out the time change has been very beneficial to this farm girl. Take yesterday morning for example. Waking up at four in the morning has its benefits. After that strong coffee and that relatively short wait for the sun to come up, you can pack a lot of things into your day. A marathon of work, some would call it.


The smell of apple bran muffins floats through the house as the sun comes up. The sound of the chainsaw floats through the window that is open a crack. It appears this early morning has advantages for both My Hero and me. There is still much to do before the snows come. He has been outside since before the sun came up.

Out the big window that is streak-free, after finally finding time to remove the grime session, the view is spectacular. Our cows are all gathered around the round bales of hay that were placed there earlier. They pay no mind to the farm girl who stands to stare out the window.


Off in the distance, the twin oak tree that just last week was full of golden leaves, now stands naked. The leaves seem to have disappeared over night, or I was too busy to notice that they were gone.


The field that was left only half cut and then baled before the drying season was cut short, is now as green as a fine spring day. I cannot believe it is November, it came quickly. The sun shines brightly and I jumped in with both feet to tackle the spring cleaning that seemed to have slipped by unnoticed once again. It will now be known as November cleaning. This time change has lots of advantages for sure, that is very apparent. The sound of the timer, the muffins are done.



Well yes, there were a lot of things accomplished yesterday after that time change and that was a good thing. I only have one complaint. The falling asleep at 8pm thing is not something I was prepared for. This morning once again up at 4am after a good night’s sleep. I wonder what will be accomplished today. 8pm does come early.

Oh yes, I am so happy that I cleaned that window, this view makes me smile.

  2. I love the feeling you are describing - the feeling of productivity and things coming together and of preparation. I have woken up a little earlier than normal today and I hope that I can use my time as well as you have used yours!

  3. I too am finding it easier to get up in the morning (and easier to hunt for my bed at night as well).

  4. Wish I could sit and have a cup of coffee and a muffin with you. I like the time change. Early this morning, I already had a pot of soup simmering in the crock pot. Now, a delicious smell is wafting through the house. Maybe I'll bake some pumpkin bread to go with it. Bob helped me clean windows last week. Your landscape out the window is worth the early morning rise!

  5. Early morning (even very early morning) is my best and favourite time of day.
    Glad that you and your hero put it to good use.

  6. Not everybody is happy about the time change. Not everybody loves to get up at 4:00 AM.

  7. I like this time change MUCH better than the one in the spring...except that tonight it feels depressingly dark so early. My moods are definitely affected by darkness. :(
    Wish I had some yummy bran muffins for breakfast! :)

  8. The early evenings make things slow down at my house, so I don't mind the time change so much. LOVE your view!

  9. Day light savings changes do bring some differences . . .
    I kind of like ending my day around eight or so . . .
    My eyes are already heavy!

  10. I'm a night person but one can't be when owing and working on the farm.
    Was up much earlier than usual today because we are having a new ducted reverse cycle system installed, the other one is worn out.

  11. I am also a night person and my brain has not caught up with the time change. Keep waking up a little after 5. I'm not opposed to taking a nap around 2 in the afternoon....especially when the snow flies.

  12. I also enjoyed the time change, until I had to drive home in the dark tonight. Now I remember why it is a pain. I'm glad you are taking advantage of it.

  13. A view is a view is a view; but clean the window and that same view is so much more spectacular suddenly.
    It's nice to get a lot of work done in the early hours, the rest of the day seems more relaxing after that, even if there is still lots to be done.

  18. I'm still getting adjusted to the time change. After a full day of cattle round-up yesterday, I was already fading by 7:30! I think I dozed all evening. But I think it's even worse with those with little kids! At least, my daughter thinks so!

  21. It must be nice to watch the sun come up over that view. The sun is up by the time I roll out of bed to do my back exercises and then go for a walk at 6:30 it is already 25°C. That is the sub tropics and what I love. We turned the aircon on today for the first time this season. Summer has come in a rush.
