What to do with an extra hour.

I always love when we change from Daylight Savings time to Eastern Standard time, and get an extra hour on the weekend. What a gift! Should we go to the park?

Or maybe we should bake cookies.

Or make a thank you present for the friend who was cleaning and . . .

gave me all her fabric! (Look at all the great selvedges for Jodie!)

Or I could read a good book. I know, let's do all of the above! And yes, I know, it is a children's book, but they're actually the best kind. Have you read the shoe books by Noel Streatfeild? I have loved them all ever since I was about nine years old, and reread them from time to time. I think my favorite is "Skating Shoes", but "Ballet Shoes" is a very close second.
I enjoyed every moment of this extra hour day, and a good thing, because tomorrow promises to be a very long day. We are trying something new at work, and it has been hanging over me like a dentist appointment all weekend. A sixteen hour day should about do it.

I think I used my extra hour catching up on some sleep! :D It sounds like you used yours much more productively than I did.

Good luck at work tomorrow. I hope it goes well for you.

Wish we got more of these extra hours!

Oh my gosh lucky you did get an extra hour on your weekend. 16 hour days dont sound too good.

We have just lost our 1 hr of the weekend. That is what happens when seasons change.

Keep your energy up will be thinking of your long day.

I hope things at work get better. Are these changes happening because of the cutbacks you had earlier in the year?
What a great fabric-gift you got, it's funny how other peoples fabrics always look better, huh?!
Wishing you a good monday :-)

I was up bright and early with lots of vigor, wrong time to change the schedule for me...I felt better than I had in a week so it really didn't matter, I was glad to be up, period! Those cookies sure look good! ...Ginny
