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!
