Savin' That Time

Daylight saving time is upon us once again.  Most people either love it or hate it.  We all enjoy having the extra bit of light in the evening, but others refuse to move their clocks be it fall or spring. 


Daylight saving time was first mentioned by the infamous Ben Franklin in 1784.  However this idea wasn't implemented until the First World War. 


Daylight Saving time benefits activities that utilize sunlight after working hours, such as our own Secret Agent Man, who is working on our flat bottomed river boat during the early evening hours. 


"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing."  

Theodore Roosevelt

  4. I enjoy the early evening hours as the weather gets cooler, but then I crave the extra sunlight to work in my garden.

    Very cool that your husband is building a river boat....Definitely hard work worth doing.

  6. Didn't you mention once that part of your area changes their clocks and the other doesnt? That must be incredibly confusing!

    I like the spring change much better then the fall change! We'll be eating dinner in the day light! It just makes you feel more awake!

  7. Nice shots. I can truly say that I am not a fan. I do love the extra daylight I just wish they would leave the clocks alone.

    I love the longer evenings, so I won't be complaining. :))

  16. Great pictures. With regard to the change in time, it make it a bit difficult to get the kid to be at the used to hour ;) yet allows more time to play with eachother. Please have a good Sunday you all.

  18. Gotta love that boat! I don't like the time change thing as it just seems like such a hassle. But I do like the lighter evenings. Love the photos! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  19. The change in time is just a human convention - nothing really changes except we all (well, most people) agree to live life an hour later for a while.

    Will be interesting to see the river boat in action. when it's ready.

  20. I deeply dislike Day Light Savings Time like any other thing that intrudes in my daily routine. I find it innatural and also the presumed 'savings' are not well documented. It is a habit, like many others...

  21. DST doesn't really effect me one way or the other -- but I do like having more light in the evenings. :)
