Thankful for time. And sleep.

Today, again, there were so many things to be thankful for:  deep conversations, crispy autumn leaves, good food, a furnace that works . . .

Despite all the possibilities, I'm going to focus in on something I was thankful for today, specifically; something that I am not usually thankful for.

Today I was thankful for an extra hour of rest.

Most years, I dread time shifts on to and off of Daylight Savings Time.  Maybe tomorrow and through the week I will get lagged-tired and have a worse attitude (as per normal).

But today, it was a glorious thing.  When my alarm clock rang this morning at 6:45, it felt like 7:45.  The angle of the sun in the sky looked like 7:45.  The air even smelled like 7:45.

On top of that, I didn't need to get up until 8:00, which by the time it arrived almost felt like noon.

I am thankful for an extra hour, a good sleep, and a relaxing morning.

Ha ha ha.

I'm ready for bed now, though!

Looks like your blogging platform is still an hour ahead.

I have no idea who runs the time on the blogging platform. Most of the things on this blogging platform seem rather inaccurate to me, but it's okay. I'm going to pack my bag for tomorrow's meeting, drink a cup of tea, and go to bed!
