  • This is the best day of the year.

    It started last night. We went to bed at 10:48. But because of Daylight Savings Time, it was only 9:48 and we got to sleep an extra hour.
  • We woke up as usual at 8 a.m. But it was 7, and we were so refreshed. We got up and wrote for an extra hour before church.
  • When we got home from church it was too early for lunch, so we spent the extra hour walking outside.
  • It was such a nice day, we spent an extra hour putting the garden to bed.
  • There was an extra hour for the babka to rise.
  • I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer, but it wasn't a problem. It had an extra hour to thaw.
  • It did get dark earlier, but that was fine. We got to spend an extra hour hunkered down before dinner.
  • And when we went to bed again, we were so pleased with how we'd spent our day, we gave ourselves an extra hour just to read.
