daylight savings time in about 2 weeks


i wrote this blog linked here titled leave it alone in 2015
the title states my sentiments on daylight savings time
leave it alone

well i was hoping that by now the law would be changed so that the time would be set and would never change
the senate passed the bill but the house of representatives did not
it is with getting things done in congress
they dont

for me i prefer what is called standard time
i guess that means what it used to be before they did the daylight changing law
i like the extra sun light in the morning since i am a morning person
i tend to not enjoy the more light in the evening

some prefer the daylight savings time so they can go do stuff after work or school
me i like that extra time in the morning

so on march the 12th the time will change
hopefully this will be the last time

so lets see if i can figure this out again
i always have to sit down and write it out to figure out what time it really is

so if i go to bed at 9pm and i usually get up at 3am then the next day on daylight savings day i will wake up at 4am the new time
i usually go to the garden at 700amish to catch the first light in the garden
but that day it will be dark at 700amish so i will have to wait to go to the garden at 800am

that means it will be chilly at 800am and there will be dew and fog moisture everywhere
then at 900am which is really 800am it will be when the garden really gets going
i feel like i lost an hour of gardening already and i havent started yet

our volunteers usually come at 900am so does that mean they wont come until 1000am

with the last time change in the fall i fell backwards and my body never made the change
ive been waking up an hour earlier every day
hopefully now i will sleep an hour longer
are is my body doing it all wrong
i cant figure it out

surely i am not the only one that feels this way 

i vote for a return to the ole original like the farmers use to deal with standard time
in november there would be a fall back and we stay back down on our time

hopefully this is our last daylight savings time change
