I fell asleep way too early last night and awoke too early this morning. Right now it is 7 am but still dark outside. If the time had not changed of course it would be 6 am. Spring forward and the time changes around the world information can be found here. I am almost always confused about this and no matter how many times I read all the reasons behind it, and which areas in the world change their time....I am still confused. All I know is that I love having more daylight hours. I really love the summer nights when it is almost 9 pm before you have to come inside the house for light.
I have been busy with our Fish Fry at church because this year we are trying to have 2 raffles to raise money for charities. I have to get there at 2 pm to set up and make sure everyone has what they need in the dessert room to have it all ready for the public at 4 pm. Our raffles are not going very well. We thought we would try it, but now is just not a good time to ask people to hand over another dollar for a "maybe" chance of winning something. Other than that....I have been working on Maddie's quilt and have one more row to add before I start sandwiching it and quilting it. I also have been knitting Isla's baby blanket and have a few more blocks to do on that and then all of the edging.
Once a week, for the past couple of weeks, I have been joining in on "a movie a week" watching with our son. Bob and he have been doing this for about a year, but most of the movies they watch are more "guy" movies, so I have never joined in, but the last few weeks I decided to. I have been trying to be a little more open minded lately. Those little sayings on my sidebar, like Mother Teresa's saying about "When you judge people, you don't have time to love them". Those quotes are more for my benefit than for anyone that may come here to read my blog. I need little reminders all the time to keep me focused on a better attitude.
Yesterday we watched a Michael Moore movie called "Capitalism: A Love Story". In the past I have dismissed the thought of trying to watch his movies, but I wanted to watch this one and then may watch all the others, just so that I can say" fairly" whether I like them or not. I don't know about you, but sometimes I just make up my mind I am not going to like something before I give it a fair shake. I plan on putting a little more effort into this this upcoming year. It is getting really hard to not get into a political conversation these days Everyone is so heated up over so many issues...debates are flying all over the place. I will try and put some effort into learning a little more and listening to both sides of debates and then making my own decisions. I got a little bit of a scolding the previous weekend at a social function from a young couple sitting next to us at a dinner, about not getting real involved in politics. He told me I should care more for the sake of our children and grandchildren. So.....I think I will put a little more effort forward and listen to all view points and then speak my mind. I have lots of personal opinions like everyone else....I just don't fell like trying to debate them or encourage others to think like me. Maybe I just don't like debates or confrontations....we will see...after I am more armed with information.
