30. March, 2006 - things to remember

Finally realized that Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend. Didn’t notice until now because this weekend is next month, but I had to flip over the calendar to write down a couple things and noticed the small print informing me that I’ll have to change the clocks. At least I didn’t find out about it on Sunday by waking up and noticing that the computer clock doesn’t match it’s less-savvy brother that hangs on the wall.

A picture of people. Kinda rare around here, I guess. There always seems to be a cluster of kids watching the carp in the reflecting pool in the conservatory. I caught them all unawares, and the colors leapt out at me.

Next up is a leaf that had fallen and been left. It was over eight inches across and well over a foot in length, and just laying there on a low concrete wall in the middle of the plants. I’m not sure why I find it as interesting as I do, but I like it.

In local news, the rain last night washed away the last of the snow in my yard. My property is now officially snow-free, so it’s time to start thinking about all the outside projects for the year. I’m hoping to get a patio and a retaining-wall built before Memorial Day, and then get the rest of the yard in shape once the construction is done. Plus the garden. I don’t think I’m going to try for more than that this year, but we’ll see how things go. And that’s about going to do it for today. I woke up a bit late with a head full of snot, so I don’t have more words for you. Seeya tomorrow.
