Dirt Road Adventures – Daylight Savings Time

Welcome to Dirt Road Adventures. Are you missing an hour this morning? Whew! Yes, it’s daylight savings time for those states that participate.

Are you for it or against it? Do you think it will be made permanent?

I love it and would be happy to stay on this schedule year-round.

I really don’t like to adjust every Spring and Fall.

I’ve heard the arguments, and I’m not taking sides.

I just need more daylight to keep me happy.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

The days are getting longer; even before we changed our clocks to daylight savings time, we had begun to have more time outdoors.

With that came a whole other set of problems.

Our trees have been budding out since February. Therefore, the pollen is terrible already.

Rudy loves all the Spring flowers and doesn’t seem to be bothered by the pollen.

Add wind to the mix, and being outdoors is less pleasant than I’d like.

After one particularly long day outdoors, I woke to one puffy eye and a stuffy nose.

Wow, was that attractive!

So, besides losing an hour of sleep today, I’ve got allergy issues.

But enough complaining… Let’s see what fun stuff happened this week.

In Case You Missed It…Daylight Savings Time Recap

Before you take a nap, let’s take a look at what you may have missed this past week on the blog.

I began the week with one of a favorite DIY Burlap Placemat Project and followed that with 16 Inspired Easter Ideas.

On Wednesday, I shared the Easiest Easter Wreath Tutorial, and then this cute Bunny Ear Napkin Fold Tutorial on Friday.

Moving away from Easter decorating, you saw the Small Bathroom Remodel for Under $500 reveal on Thursday.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Each week, there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.

There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL

My talented friend Molly lives on the coast of Maine, and she does a great job decorating her cottage to reflect her beautiful coastal views. You will love seeing her Creative Wall Decor Ideas.

My friend Stacy can teach you anything you need to know about growing flowers, plus how to bring them inside and How to Decorate with Easter Flowers.

I know she will enjoy daylight savings time because she loves working in her garden, especially in the spring.
