Everybody Awake Yet?

Well, the time has lose an hour.  I hope everyone remembered to turn their clocks ahead.

Do you realize we now only have about 4 1/2 months of standard time now?  Although it is nice to have longer nights, anyone with animals knows how hard it is on the animals and feeding schedules.  The older I get the harder it is to adjust their (and my) times.  You would think it would get easier through experience but no....  Many farmers do not change their clocks.  Especially those with cattle that need milking.

On another note......

My thoughts and prayers, and heart goes out to those in Japan, and any other countries in the wake of the Tsunami.  We have many friends who come from Malaysia who has family there.

The Japanese are a strong resilient people but that doesn't mean that this was a dramatically traumatic experience.  I can't help but think of what this might do to the children, and pictures of the orphaned children in Haiti flood my mind.

                                               Such a trying time, for such a beautiful country. 
So it almost feels disconnected to be able to say that today, I am hoping to finish bagging leaves in the front, the back is going to take much longer.  But we all have our jobs, that we have to do, and it does keep your mind occupied and off the sadness.

It will be a quiet day for the most part..everyone home and resting for the start of a new week, and reflecting on what we have, and thinking of Japan..

See you later,


  1. I am just shocked at the devastation, feel so badly for those people... a good day to reflect and appreciate all that is good here.

  2. I really am missing my hour today. It really hit me this afternoon. I'm going to bed early.

    And Japan... I don't think I can fully understand the effects. But my prayers are lifted.
