good and bad time

 i hate daylight savings time
a little in the light 
 it seems like there's no day left after work
 but there are mysteries and miracles in the sky
yes
these are small miracles
 every day
every day
when i thought there might be
no more everydays
i'm smiling
and so is this small one.

you're gracious to be able to find the good bits! i just don't like it, period. i wonder what wendy thinks of it all.

Velma Bolyard said...

yes, aimee, there may be good bits...not human made, for sure. wendy just loves me...and the kids and you and india and roz (speaking of bloggers) and, and, and...

ronnie said...

I don't know if DST means the same thing over there as it does over here.... but I loathe and detest daylight savings..... blah... but love catching pics of hounds still on the run - yay wendy!

kaiteM said...

keep going Wendy, gently does it.

kat said...

lovely! My sort of miracles

ArtPropelled said...

Lovely to see Wendy on the trot and I have my eye on that board.

neki desu said...

5 pm and it's already dark. not fun indeed. and sunsets escape me.

Jennifer said...

Love your miracles - both in the sky and in Wendy. Daylight savings time...well, it sucks. When it gets dark at 4 or 5 pm, my body always thinks it's time to sleep.

That all sounds so weird from over here where I would love to have some daylight savings time. The sun is up at 4.50am and goes down about 6.15pm - I would love a slightly darker morning and a slightly longer twilight - and we don't have daylight savings! Whatever we have, we have to make the most of the seasonal rhythms don't we - I go to bed a lot earlier now seeing as how its bright by 5.

everyone, wendy says woof! she's a little crooked, but frisky
ronnie, dst=in the fall we turn the clock back an hour, spring forward. dst always feels like we've slaughtered our days, especially when the daylight is waning anyway.
kaite, she does get ahead of herself now.
kat, yep, just everyday
robyn, the board is a good one!
neki, the sky is wide open here on top of th ehill
jennifer, it's a tough adjustment every autumn
fiona, always adjusting to old sol, aren't we?

india flint said...

love that snap of lovely Wendy

Susan said...

Velma, oh you found the bright spots. I'm on the fence with DLS - I change only some of my clocks. I guess I don't like abrupt transitions

Velma Bolyard said...

indie, yes!
susan, like the amish, who solve it by being 1/2 off all the time!

AliceAndFlorence said...

Beautiful pictures. Part of me looks forward to cosying up by the fire, but it's no fun going to work and coming home in the dark.
A woof to Wendy from another Wendy!

Velma Bolyard said...

there's a wee bit of light as i go to work, and and hour and a half after. so far...

Leslie Avon Miller said...

Once its gets dark like this I put up little twinkle lights...the Winter Lights. They stay up til well into spring.
Good to see Wendy. She is such a love.

Velma Bolyard said...

good idea, leslie

Bryan's Japanese Textiles said...

Hi Wendy,
Kiss and hug and tummy rub and ear scratch my friend. Keep warm, bryan

Velma Bolyard said...

bryan, wendy says she'd prefer all those in person, but velma might translate them if she's in a good mood!
