Fall Back Day

I love it when stupid Daylight Savings Time ends.  I just don't see the point of DST at all, and wish we could be on standard/normal time year round, like Arizona and Hawaii.  I just love it the day the clocks go back.  That extra hour is so awesome!!!  

As it turns out, I ended up doing a little bit of almost everything I love to do that day.  I didn't travel and I didn't colour.  What I did do was: spend quality time with my squeeze before he went back on the road, beadwork, take Pepper for a walk, photography and beach combing.  It was really sunny and chilly with a brisk wind.  Also had leftover Chinese food at lunch and at night, my famous "Loaded Hot Choxy" for a warm, sweet, tasty treat.

These are the pics I shot on Fall Back Day, November 6.

This stuff was in someone's yard, right near the street, with no sign of the homeowner planning on boxing it up.  I wasn't sure if it was left there for people to take for free or what.  I only took a picture, nothing else, of course.

Shell on a shell

o.O  I call this one the "not so mighty Quinn".

I was just glad there wasn't a severed foot inside it, like they find from time to time in British Columbia.

I liked how the sunshine on the other side of the bridge lit the water up all green, under the bridge.

This bright red bush is in our yard.
So is this one.

  2. Lovely pictures as usual.

    Sadly, our stupid government wants to fix us at British Summer Time.

    Haven't they noticed that we have the Greenwich that gave its name to the global standard of Greenwich Mean Time?!?!

  3. Love the fall and the photos. :-)

    I also find DST to be stupid. Having grown up in Hawaii, I find it really odd that everyone here runs around essentially pretending it's an hour later than it really is. No one else seems to find it ridiculous. I find 'springing' forward to be worse to adjust to so 'falling' back is really great for me, too.

    I'm SO glad there wasn't a severed foot in that show either... I think I'd freak out if I ever found one! Love changing back to Standard Time too... especially that extra hour of sleep...
