Sunshine is my Friend

April 17, 2011

You have no idea how much this sunshine brightens my day! I makes me feel like a new person! 🙂

I have desperately missed the warmth of the sunshine during all the cold, cloudy, dark days of winter!

We are at nearly 15 hours of daylight already, and we still have 2 more months of gaining daylight! It changes quickly when you are gaining nearly 6 minutes of daylight each day! That’s more than half an hour each week!

Today’s sunrise – 6:35 a.m.

(When I’ve been starting my runs—around 5:45 a.m.—a hint of light can be seen in the sky. 🙂 )

Today’s sunset – 9:26 p.m.

(It is still light out when I go to bed!)

For comparison, check out these posts about the lack of daylight through our winter months.

I enjoyed a hot, creamy bowl of oatmeal this morning for breakfast. (Honestly, there is oatmeal under all those topping!)

This bowl of oatmeal was extra creamy because I used Scottish oats instead of old-fashioned oats. A bowl of oatmeal would not be complete without a dollop of crunchy peanut butter!

What was the highlight of your weekend?

    1. That fruit bowl is beautiful. The colors are so rich and pretty. It looks so delicious as well.

      The highlight of my weekend was running my first half marathon. I was so excited to finish.

      I’m glad the sun is hitting your parts. I love how much daylight we have been getting too! 🙂

    1. That is crazy it is light out that late at night! It must make your days feel nice and long.

      1. Yes, they do feel long! And to think we still have about 9 hours of daylight to gain!

    1. Awesome run schedule!
      My weekend highlight was saving TONS of money at the Farmers Market 🙂

    1. You are always the highlight of my evening honey.

    1. Sunshine just puts everyone in such a wonderful mood i love it. What a great running weekend!
