Time to change the clocks!

By
Real Estate Agent with United Country Ponderosa Realty

Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour before going to bed tonight.  Most of the U.S. will return to Standard Time on Sunday November 6, 2011 at 2:00 a.m.

At first, it's difficult to adjust to those time changes!  At least for this time change, we will be EARLY instead of LATE and      Sunday's sundown will be early too!

 

Now is a good time to change the batteries in your Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide CO Detectors. 

Stay safe and enjoy that extra hour of sleep tonight!

I always like the extra hour in the Fall Mary. Great reminder for EVERYONE, yet it still is hard adjusting the next couple of days. I am not a big fan of the darker nights coming sooner with the clock either...

Thanks Suzanne, sometimes I'm surprised about that too, but then there are just as many reasons as there are people! :-)

Thank you Jane, hopefully we won't forget now, but if we do we'll just be unfashionably early!  LOL

HA! Myrl, that would really throw me off too, what do they say?, "she was way before her time" :-) Thanks Myrl!

Hee Hee Tammy, your comment cracked me up.  Thanks for the chuckle.

Hi Gordon, if you change them now, and go to bed at your regular hour- for instance 10:30 it's really like 11:30 right- but it's not 11:30 because the news will still be on and what time are you supposed to eat dinner???....now that's confusing!  Thanks for stopping in today - good luck with that!

Gary, I think it is hard to adjust.  Fall seems to be a bit easier when gaining an hour, rather than losing it in the Spring.  I'm with you, not a big fan when it gets dark so "early" either!  Thanks for your thoughts on it today Gary!

Hi Mary,

Your photos are gorgeous..usually we set our clocks back Saturday night before going to bed but we were out and when we came back we forgot! I like the extra hour of sleep but hate the dark so early in the evenings :(.

I just found another clock that I hadn't reset. . .The one on the oven and the microwave.  I have far too many clocks:-)

I hate leaving daylight savings. It's really hard. It's almost like going to Hawaii and it's not as hard as going to New York, but time changes leave me totally confused. Now, I'm starving at 11 AM. I am dead tired by 8 PM. I hate it. Grumble, grumble.

Hi Mary,   Just wanted to stop in and wish you a most wonderful Holiday.  I am spending the day with my folks in LA.  The turkey is in the oven, the giblets are simmering on the stove.   The fancy dishes are being placed with care.    It is the good in life.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Oh My!  Thank you Bruce, Joni, Myrl, Debra, Juli, Tammy, Dorie, Jennifer, Cathy, Elizabeth and Mara!  I apologize for not getting back to this post until after Thanksgiving!

November has literally flown by...maybe it was the ferocious winds that have blown...maybe it was the time change...maybe it was the 3 contracts I've  been trying to keep up with ( this is big for me)- but I miss you all, too and hope you all had a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving Day!
