I am so excited and so looking forward to springing ahead! Something happens to me when we fall back. I think I just fall down and can't get up! It has been this way for years. I remember driving to work in the dark and getting home after dark and not seeing much of day light except through a window. I'd drag myself out of bed in the morning and couldn't wait to get back in bed after dark. I'm no longer working out side the house but now I think I am worse because I really don't have a schedule. On top of it, I am going through an insomnia phase.
Once the time changes and the days get longer, I seem to wake up earlier and enjoy my coffee outside. That is the time to be outside before the heat of the day. I can do a few things on the patio and/or around the yard before the temperature and humidity get unbearable. At the end of the day, when it's still light, when the sun is over in the west, it's great to bar-b-q and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio and just relax in a breeze as the sun sets. I can now take my wireless laptop out for when I can't drag myself away and get back to reading some great books calling me. On my journey for enjoying my home and life, I am going to work on this as part of my day.

Completely-Coastal has a great post for DIY coastal garden ideas. The wonderful thing about so much of the inspiration I get is you don't have to live on the water but anywhere to use and enjoy a coastal living. She also has a great post Completely-Coastal outdoor garden decor with succulents.

There are many ideas out there, it's just a matter of looking and then doing! I am so energized just waiting for the time change and back into the sun-up, sun-down routine!
Hope you have a great week end!
