It’s the time of year we are deprived of one hour.
Last Sunday of every March our clocks go forward one hour.
I realize some of my friends like this change as it gets dark later… but I don’t! For one, I don’t appreciate the change. Anyway, since the EU citizens [me included] decided that they don’t like the change, even if they pick DST as the regular one, I wish they’d get on with it.
However, instead of whining about it, I’ll focus on Vangelis’ Birthday today [after Oannes post]
This DST is messed up. Sigh!
Nonetheless, on we go!
Sending hugs over time zones!
Messed up and then some!!!!
Oh, yes, on we go!!!!!
With smiles and paw waves!!!!!
Be Safe xoxoxox
You too, my dear Holly, you too!!! ❤
So here’s the thing… they cannot change the number of dark hours in a 24-hour cycle no matter how much they play around with the clock. So let yourself get up early and enjoy the extra hour of darkness before dawn!
Um…. it’s the getting up early that’s a bit tricky with the change, but I’ll get there! 😉 You’re right though about the cycle! 🙂
Well, I don’t set my alarm or anything… I just wake up sometimes and rather than get uptight… just go with it… 👾👾👾😌😌 Early morning can be really sweet!!😌
It can be…. 😉
An hour is “borrowed” for 6 months before being paid back. BUT WITHOUT INTEREST! But looking on the bright side, I guess you’ve already had an extra DAY this year 😉
A ha ha…yes that extra day!!!!! So many things that the corona has deprived us of! Unfortunately, the extra day went unnoticed! 😉 Oh, well… we can stretch time in our minds, so that’s okay! 😉
Love your art – always brings a sense of peace to my day.
Awwww….. what a beautiful compliment, my dearest Rebecca!!!!! Thank you so much! Here’s to a lovely week ahead! xoxoxo
Clock artwork to remind us…very nice! Many nighttime workers have to work an extra hour if they begin work before 2am! And not to rob us of our reasonable moment of angst…in 1752 Britain and all her colonies lost 11 days due to finally converting to the Gregorian calendar. People went to bed on September 2nd and woke up to September 14th! How do I know about this? I read it in a novel, not a history book 🙂
Really???????!!!!!!!!! I didn’t know that!
Wow! 11 days lost!!!!!!
Now it certainly sounds ridiculous winging about one hour huh?! 😉
Now I’ll always remember that! 🙂 xoxo
😉 We can whine as much as we like. Lord knows we have lots of reasons now for sure! Be safe, be well…xoxo
We do, don’t we… but that’s part of living, a blessing. You too!! 😉 xoxo
I know the feeling. Good news is we’ve already gone through the agony. Love the opening pic!
Lucky you!!!! …or maybe not…. I thought ours was early but apparently there’s worse! 😉 Thank you, my dear friend!
I absolutely LOVE when the clocks go forward. Spring is coming and bringing the treasured light
Hi Helen, happy to hear you love this change. I obviously can’t share your enthusiasm on this change but I definitely can on the coming of Spring! So, here’s to Spring! 🙂
I could not agree more .
Keek safe , my dear friend ❤
🙂 You too, my dear friend! xoxoxoxoxoxo
In the US it happened three weeks ago and much too early. Suddenly we were once again waking up in the dark and I was not amused. They are really wrong -footed about some things here. I’ve been unpleasantly surprised by a few things since we moved here. 😱
Canada and the US are on the same daylight savings time schedule, but there are rumblings that there may be changed. Right now, Yukon, most of Saskatchewan, some locations in Québec east of 63° westerly longitude (e.g. Blanc-Sablon), Southampton Island, and some areas in British Columbia don’t use DST and stay on standard time all year.
Which I find to be a normal thing to do… exactly as it used to be before some heads decided to change it! Still even if they decided to keep DST I wouldn’t mind, as long as we don’t have to go through this change. Research has shown that it negatively affects people especially over 50s, physically. Anyway, there are far worse things than this, so… we’ll get used to it! 😉
I love your enthusiasm for life. Hugs and stay safe.
Ah, one of the things we have in common! Many hugs back and you too!!! ❤
Boy, that’s early!!!!!! And I thought ours was early! 🤔😳 Anyway, eventhough I don’t like DST, I wouldn’t mind having it throughout the year,as long as we didn’t have to change! Oh, well….
We already had our change to the bleeping DST on March 8th… ugh.
Vangelis is always a treat!
Ugh indeed!!!!!!! 😦 😦
I said it was your bête noir 🙂 but look on the bright side, before we close an eye, it will be going back again.
A ha ha ha…. I guess you’re right!!!!! 😉
