The Gift of Time

With the end of Daylight Savings time this weekend, Americans were afforded the luxury of an extra hour last night. (Well, technically in the wee hours of the morning...)

So, what did you do with yours?

I'd love to say I used that extra hour to write something profound, to be prolific, to crank out an amazing scene in my WIP. Heck, I'd like to say I used that hour to write anything at all. These days, when there are not enough hours in the day, an extra one is certainly a gift.

So what did I do with mine?

I slept. I've been feeling under the weather, so I used this year's "gift" to get some much needed rest. I do feel a tad bit guilty for not using it in some other meaningful way, but this worked for me.

And since I woke up at the crack of dawn (Well, not really, it just seemed that way for a Sunday morning when I could sleep in.), I'm going to grab my laptop and put my fingers to the keys this morning. At least that's something.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

I fell asleep watching TV, woke up, let the dog out and got ready for bed. I was already an hour late going to my real bed by then. I got up at my normal time, so I didn't feel like I'd gained an hour. I had a busy day getting ready for a shower and being there and getting back in the evening, so my hour is long gone.

It was nice to see it a little lighter in the morning, though.

We were at a wedding reception and instead of arriving home at midnight, it became 11:00 instead. Had we been a few years younger, we probably would have spent the extra time partying! But the hour of sleep was wonderful!!!

I slept too, and haven't even noticed the change at all.
