An unfounded shift in time

I couldn’t help but notice something was off this week. While the natural world around me stayed completely predictable, the large bald one shifted her entire daily routine for what seemed to be no reason whatsoever. She no longer rose with the sun, instead the sun followed her. The same thing happened later in the day when she stopped working ahead of the sunset.

It was an abrupt shift on her part. And as far as I can tell, it was completely against her will. Each morning this week she moved slower than usual and complained to me incessantly. I complained back as my breakfast was served approximately one hour too early and my bedtime snack before my actual bedtime. 

I am not sure exactly what is going on with the large, bald ones, but I am continuing to resist this unfounded shift in time. I just hope that I can pull Michele back into our regular rhythm before she is lost forever. 

MICHELE’S ADDENDUM: This week Daylight Saving Time finally came! I am so grateful for the extra hour sun that I barely noticed Cal’s difficulty in adjusting. I am sure he’ll come around soon.
