I could get used to having an extra hour in my day … and wouldn’t it be great to have an additional 60 minutes on an every-day basis? Yes, keep wishing! I was so much more productive!!! Last night, I never set my alarm clock back and instead used that extra hour to get stuff done. In fact, as of right now, I’ve yet to re-set any of my clocks and find myself counting backward an hour and feeling good about it. How nice the computer self-adjusts the clock. It’s too bad the car clock does not do the same. I don’t drive much in the colder months, and as little as possible in the Winter, so I don’t adjust the time to E.S.T. I used to stash a cheat sheet for re-setting the time in the glove box in my former car and I’ve yet to do that with this one, despite it being four years old. The car manual looks like a small book, so I just keep it simple. Now that it is light again in the morning, I can bulk up the walking time. I was getting dangerously close to my walking miles being neck-in-neck with the car’s odometer setting. I got three miles in today just going grocery shopping and hauling in groceries. One day I shall keep that pedometer on all day for the heck of it and see what I log here, there and everywhere in the house. So, I’m finally sitting down to write today’s blog post and catch up with Facebook and some e-mail. I know I should have factored raking leaves into my agenda, but the leaves in the yard were all wet and still kind of sparse. Give it another week and it will be a worthwhile project. In the meantime, I’m plum tuckered out from walking, shopping and the fresh air on a fine Fall day.
