"In transit to its destination"
At least Michigan is in the general area of Ohio. As was Pennsylvania. We've got the target surrounded. It boggles the mind. At this point, I'll be thrilled if it actually reaches its destination.
After years of being the outpost in our megafirm, we (as in yours truly) are being inundated with visiting attorneys this week. This meant re-commissioning rooms, setting up computers and phones, cleaning, catering, etc. I wouldn't even mind the earlier than usual mornings, except for the fact that they are occurring on the back of this archaic time change. Anyone who raises chickens knows that you need daylight in order to open the doors - especially if you are in a predator-laden area. I've known owls who have swooped down and sauntered through open coop doors to do their worst while it's still dawn and the chickens are in their overnight stupor.
Speaking of chickens, I have noticed that I tend to lose the old girls in the early spring, as opposed to mid-winter. It seems like they use up all their energy trying to make it through, only to run out in March. I've lost one of my Goldies (Buff Orpington), my last Maran, and there is another that is looking wilted. The one that I secretly despise will probably outlive all the rest and continue to make my life a living hell.
There seems to be sun out this morning - if I remember what sun looks like - but the rest of the week will be overcast. I may need to buy my Vitamin D3 by the case lot.
