Time



With the time change going into effect this morning, I was up and about much earlier than usual.  




Today will be one of confusion for some people.  Our small town area sits next to the Central/Eastern time line.  Smalltownland resides in the Central time zone, but people around these parts like to choose what time they want to use. Some folks live in one time zone and work in another.....confusion.  



Taking to the back roads to run some errands, I found trees with lovely colors, but the sky was a washed out, pale gray.  


As I pulled over to take a picture of this barn sinking into the ground, a farmer stopped to ask if I was alright.  




Always nice to know that a helping hand is nearby. 


"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."  

Ralph Waldo Emerson  


Linking up with Tom today......

  1. Years ago I lived in Toledo, OH right on the Ohio/Michigan line. Monroe, MI didn't go on Daylight Savings. CONFUSING! When I'm on the backroads and stop to pictures folk often stop to see if I need help...NICE. Thanks for linking this week and I hope that you will return again.

  5. Every time we have a time change I think of you and your particular time challenges. I think changing the time is absurd and upsetting to so many people. I just read today that there is a movement to leave it at DST. I could go along with that. Love your autumnal images and nice to have someone check on you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. I can't deal with time changing and would be lost working in time zones. When I travel to Europe, I can never get my head around the different times.

    1. Donna, my husband and I work in different time zones. It can be tricky scheduling things. We just have to be precise.

  7. You are nearly at that all-brown, leafless time of year that I don't like up north. Kind of pretty to see in your photos, but not my favorite time to live in.

    1. Jack, I confess that I am looking a bit forward to winter. It is the slow time of year for us.

  10. That would be a bit confusing, I have never really thought about it. I slept in this morning and had trouble getting up, as if the clocks went the other way, go figure!

    Your images are pretty but it looks like fall is just about over!!

  11. I woke up early, too......but now I'm tired and it isn't bedtime yet! haha.

  12. Your pictures are great despite the gray skies. I had to smile about Jack's comment above. I am just the opposite. Love the winters. I find it much easier to wrap up to get warm on cold days than it is to carry an air conditioner around to get cool in the summer. :-) I sure hear you about the confusion that goes with living on the edge of a time zone. And I thought just changing from daylight time to standard was a pain! Maybe it would help a little if we did away with this daylight savings thing or just left it in place all year. Wishing you a fine week ahead!

  13. Very nice to live in an area where someone stops and asks if you are okay . . .
    Great pictures Michelle . . .

  14. So pretty.
    We don't change times, but all radio and t.v. programs do and automatic thermostats etc. :) So it can be confusing anyway!

  15. Hello Michelle! Good morning from Portugal!:) Time changes take a bit of ajusting to, trouble is animals don't know the clock has been put back or forward, and still want their usual schedule, living on a farm you know what I mean! Working in different time zones must be really confusing. I like the quote you share today, it's a good start to mine.:)

  16. I like the first photo of the newly paved road. The bright yellow line draws one into the photo. As far as time goes... I felt great when I woke up Sunday morning. I was one hour younger. :))

  18. Hello, lovely images and a great barn shot. I wish the time change would just stop. Have a happy new week!

  19. Gorgeous views here today.....How confusing this must be for many. Not sure how this would work, but I'm assuming that it does! So, what about businesses in the surrounding area? Do they all follow the same time? Have an awesome day,

  20. I love farmers and neighbors whose first instinct is to ask if you are okay. Lovely photos. Have a fantastic week.

  22. This time change is exhausting! Yesterday seemed as though it would never come to a close.
    Late Fall photos are some of my very favorite.
    Have a lovely week,

  25. Europe turned the clocks back a week ago and I love being closer to a natural sun rythm. I might just be the only weirdo who does (along with VP!) Loooove that first photo. Makes me want to jump on a plane to the States!

  26. So interesting to be so close to the time line!

  27. The time zone issue must make life interesting sometimes. Making appointments could be amusing! Love the autumn shades in your photos.
