The Current Normal – So Dazed and Confused

My eyes opened this past Sunday morning to see 7:14 on the clock. Wait! What? That just seemed wrong. Did our clock automatically adjust to MST? Nope apparently not. This year the time change lived up to its billing…An Extra Hour of Sleep. I looked out the window to see what my blue moon was doing. It was a little hazy, like my time changed brain.

Extra hour of sleep?

Who knows what time it is now?

Daylight savings ends.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. To be honest, I would love for it to come to an end. Yes, philosophical optimist might see an extra hour as a beautiful gift to enjoy, but in reality, its introduction did not lead to the expected benefits, such as energy savings. Thanks for sharing and take care 😊 Aiva

    1. Agreed. Here, they are opting to stay on permanent daylight saving time in BC & Yukon. Saskatchewan already does and three or 4 other provinces are voting on it. The trouble is that they are going the wrong way. Here, if we go on permanent DST, our sunrise in winter will be after 9:30 AM. The doctors say that will harm normal circadian rhythm resulting in accidents and health issues. Even when they get it right, they get it wrong. Thanks for chiming in Aiva. Allan

  2. I’m really hoping that they get rid of daylight savings. I have a pretty consistent sleep cycle (even on weekends), and it takes me awhile to re-adjust. It’s very disruptive. I don’t know a single person that likes it or finds it useful.

    1. I am with you. It started off as a way to save electricity, but all it does is create sleep deficits. And please do away with DST not Standard Time. Darkness until 9:30AM in December would screw us up even more. Stay well. Allan
