Today is one of my favorite days of the year, with Thanksgiving and my kid's birthdays in close contention. The reason I love it is today is the day we change our clocks back. Almost every time I looked at the clock today, it was an hour earlier than I thought. I really did gain an hour!
And with my hour, I read the entire Sunday paper, looking at every ad; I made 3 containers of potato leek soup with organic produce from my CSA box; I canned 8 quarts of organic tomatoes for use this winter; sorted my big mail pile; bought two birthday presents; lunched with the family; and several other inconsequential errands. We also managed to fit in dinner with some friends.
I love daylight savings!
