We forgot to change our clock/alarm clock even our oven timer last night. I woke up too early this morning at 3 o’clock? I blamed my work schedule for messing my body clock. This is what I get for having different shifts, now I have to wake up too early and can’t go back to sleep.
I turned my computer on and saw the difference between its time and what the wall clock says, thank goodness the computer is automatic when it comes to this.
It’s daylight saving time. It means Spring is here and snow is finally over (keeping finger crossed!). Yey!
I used to be confused about this time change, I was like… are we going to lose or gain an hour? I have to ask couple people about this until I got a technique from a friend. I was so naive about this before.
She told me, we gain an hour of daylight on Spring and we fall back to the standard time on Fall. In short, Spring forward and Fall back!
One time, I was talking to my uncle who lives in Switzerland told me that at 7 o’clock at night there’s still a daylight. I didn’t believe him at first,because how could it happened at 7 o’clock at night? It’s night.
Until, I came over here and see it for myself. It’s very true! And what’s the good thing about it? Lots. It will save us money of not using much light,obviously. It also accompanies good weather and a little bit of sunshine, meaning, the thermostat will go down even just two degrees lower than usual and our electric heater won’t be running most of the time. Let alone, the hour of sleep we lose this weekend!
So, how did I welcome this happy day of my life?
It’s simple. As what I normally do.
It will be nice out and can’t wait to take the girls outside to enjoy this beautiful day!
