I loathe winter. The only thing that's worse is day light savings time. I hate that I get robbed an hour of daylight. So much so that I refuse to change my alarm clock. And, I may have written Nevada legislature urging to forgo it like Arizona (and Hawaii) has done. We haven't opted out yet, therefore I curse the days I commute in darkness in the morning and evening. I have a vitamin D deficiency as it is. I could really benefit from that extra hour of sun.
I have been soaking it up since the time change. Not only has that beautiful ball of light been shining bright, it's also brought warmth. Well, at least, to my neck of the woods. It's been near 90 since Sunday. It's been glorious! I wish it would stay like this forever. Last year, the kids didn't get into the pool until St. Patrick's Day. We beat that this year. Solar panels are wonderful, by the way. We hosted a pool party on Sunday. Friends and the family swam and soaked up the rays.
Frank put his pit master skills to use and smoked a couple pork shoulders for us all to enjoy. It was the perfect way to kick off the first of many sunday fundays.
