When you go to bed this Saturday night, remember to “Spring forward” for daylight saving time. It’s time to change the clocks! Are you ready for longer daylight hours? I love reading my Facebook newsfeed and my Twitter-feed around this time of year. Here’s why: friends in L.A. today were tweeting that the climate seemed confused – a little warm and chilly at different parts of the day. Friends on the East Coast were posting status updates about a sunny day in New York. March is the in-between month; people don’t seem to know what to do with the weather.
I am definitely ready for hot weather, sunshine, and swimming pools!
During my childhood, I always knew Spring had sprung when the white dogwood trees bloomed. What flower signaled Spring for you?
Maybe the Crocus? Or daffodil? Bennett, our Creative director is calling out to me as I write this, “Forsythia!” Regardless what blooms first in your region, you can send our daylight savings cards to tell everyone to get ready! Remind them with a “Spring forward” daylight savings ecard. We are introducing an extremely cute one this year, clock changing time. Have a peek and tell us what you think. See you in the sun!
Hi again, Chandler here writing on Leap Day, Feb. 29, 2008.
Some of our customers are still buried in snow. Bennett, who writes many of our scripts and is the Gecko’s voice, reports his Mom is expecting to be snowed in New England this weekend by another blizzard. March will come in like a lion. But the funny thing is other customers are feeling a Spring awakening already. My kids here in California just got the season’s first grass stains on their pants yesterday playing in the yard. If any of you reading this have a good inexpensive remedy for removing grass stains, please write in and let me know it!
My youngest, Cooper, has been speaking in sentences since the New Year began (thanks to those of you who asked after him), and my second, Ollie, tells me he will grow up to be the doctor for the whole city. He has the kind of personality that makes me believe he probably will. Otis, my oldest, seems inclined toward Rock Star. What are your kids interested in? Write in and let us know. HAPPY LEAP DAY!
