Do you have it where you are? Do you like it? Do you spend more time outside because of it?
I am missing it right now. Lying here waiting for the sun to come up, so I can start my day.
I'm full of questions today aren't I!!!

I love daylight saving time! Always have, especially if I was traveling because I could be on the road later before having to find an RV park. It's starting to get dark a bit earlier in the evening now and it's also not getting light quite as early in the morning. We now change time in March and in November so, as you can imagine, I'm not looking forward to November.

I love it too. It is great driving later in the day and not having to worry about kangaroos on the road. A neighbor hit one last week, what a mess to her car. If it was daylight saving time when she was coming home it would not have happened. I am not sure this year when we go onto it again. I guess you don't want November to arrive, maybe you will have a nice long warm autumn, that would be nice. Here today it is absolutely beautiful outside right now, but very cold in the house, so I have the gas blasting away.

We're finally getting summer after a very late start. It was over 90 today and is supposed to be that way through the weekend. I love being able to have all the doors and windows open until late at night.

We have our share of wildlife on the roads. A bear was found dead beside the highway yesterday south of us and while it's not unheard of, it doesn't happen often. We're more likely to see dead deer, raccoons, skunks and possums on our roads. Once in a great while a horse or cow will escape and get hit. And animal can do major damage to a vehicle depending on speed. I've seen cars where deer have gone through the windshield and a big rid that hit two black horses one night.

Don't think we will see 24C but as long as it is no minus, I will be happy.

Unfortunately out this way councils don't pick up anything. Due to the long drought the kangaroos have moved in very close to towns. They can really cause a lot of damage. Just ask the 94 year old woman in Charleville that was attacked while hanging her washing out last week.
