This Week...Some Cold Weather and a Found Hour


We finally got some cold weather this week if you consider waking up to temps in the mid-40s to low 50s cold. This is the time of year when you leave your house in the morning with long sleeves or a lightweight jacket then shed them by early afternoon. 

 

 

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. Andy Warhol

 


So now it’s November and the holiday rush is on. However, don’t worry because if you live in a state that observes the Time-change thing...you have now gained an extra hour to spend on Amazon shopping for holiday gifts. 


People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that.  Eddie Huang

 

Time comes up in conversation daily...people you meet don’t have enough of it, ran out of it, or lost track of it. There are professionals who specialize in helping companies manage it.

 



Our devices have clocks of all sorts built into them with timers, alarms, and stopwatches. I wonder if anyone over a certain age buys an actual watch anymore? Not the smartwatches but the ones that strictly tell us what time it is. 

 

Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”  Lao Tzu



And yet with all of the abilities we have to know the time, we often still manage to forget about it or waste it. 

 

On that note, I have to go...I’m running out of time. 

 

Enjoy that extra hour this weekend!!!

 



  • How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon? Dr. Seuss

Good Saturday morning, Kathy.

We have a sunny but chilly Saturday morning in Maryland. 42 degrees as I make this comment.

Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Kathy Streib -  Of course, your images are gorgeous as usual!  But we have neither of the two things in your title.  Our weather is above normal and no time change! HaHa. Get some extra sleep tonight!

HI Ron and Alexandra Seigel I think we've all used that phrase!!!  We had beautiful sunny weather today. The morning started off in the high 40s but there was no wind, which helped. 

Hi Miriam Odegard I wonder if we'll ever do away with DST.

I wonder too! However...this time of year in Indiana is my favorite, since I get to snuggle under the blankets! :)

Brian England I have no idea how in the world you can keep up with what time it is anywhere else since you aren't on DST. Wish you could attend the ZOOM meeting. 

Nina Hollander, Broker the hardest part for me is remembering what cold-weather clothes I have. We should have warm temps this week.

Kat Palmiotti you would laugh at what Larry and I wear when it's 40 degrees out. Nanook of the North comes to mind! LOL

Ok Ed Silva 28 is too cold for me!!!

Roy Kelley That's not too bad, especially with the sun out!!! Hope you and Chef Dolores have a great Sunday. 

Will Hamm good for you!!!   You are still healing so probably need it.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® you're right!!!  I don't know how you keep track of what time it is in other states since you don't have DST.

Driving home in the dark is not appealing one bit Kathy. Deer and other obstacles present quite often on the stretch of road towards home! Your photos are quite beautiful as always.

Kathy I have always been anti Time Change, it is like adjusting to traveling in different time zones.... takes me two or three days to get on the same page.... then to boot our cats were not told of the Time Change when it comes to breakfast... so guess what they will be harassing us tomorrow:))

Hi Kathy - at least the sun is shining.  We flew down to our Florida house last night from Westchester and enjoying having the extra hour.  Beautiful sunny morning but coo.

We actually got down to 20 something this past week...late at night only, but still.

During the day we are looking at low to mid fifties.

It is so true that when a person says they don't have time, they are really saying it's not a priority and they don't want to do whatever is being asked of them.

It's been a busy few days for me.  However, while out and about this morning, I noticed a dramatic change in the color of Sacramento leaves.  There was also a small breeze that was escallating their exit from the trees to the ground.  Frost probably won't be long in arriving.

Love your photos, Kathy.

We've got some cold weather coming this week. I'm not real excited about the cost of my propane tank refills as it could be shocking. Unbelievable a President wants to put the hurt on every American.
