I don't care who thought of it. I don't care why it was started. I don't care that some people hate it. I LOVE daylight savings time. Without it, during fall & winter, the only time I see the sun is on my way to work in the morning. Don't see much of it while I'm at work, and since I work until 6:00 pm, when I leave, there ain't none left. Makes you feel like the day is over. Might as well just go home & go to bed, 'cause there's nothing fun to do. whine, sniff
But now, when I trudge out the back door to go home for the day, this is what I see . . .
Blue sky, clouds, trees, sunshine, discernible objects. Before DST, this is what I would see when I walked out the door . . .
And speaking of light, I have a hallway in my house that does not have a light fixture in it, so when we would get up in the middle of the night to, uh, do our business, we would have to grope our way to the bathroom. That got old, so a few years ago I strung up some miniature lights along the ceiling. Made a nice twinkly (actually, they didn't twinkle, they were steady burning) happy trail for us to follow, but over the past few weeks, they slowly started snuffing out. Mini lights are pretty inexpensive, so instead of trying to guess which ones were burned out, I just replaced the whole shebang. Ah, but with a different kind this time. Coooooooool . . .
