It's that time of year again.  We get that hour back that was ruthlessly taken from us last Spring. We can't just think of it as another hour.  No, sir, it's a BONUS hour!

Here are some of my suggestions on what to do with you extra (bonus) hour this weekend.

  • Get up early and make your significant other breakfast in bed.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Get outside and get all those leaves up before a big snow gets here.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Clean the garage.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Winterize your lawnmower.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.

  • Take in a virtually church service.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Wash the windows so you have a clear view of Winter.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Put away all the patio furniture. Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Make sure your snow blower is in good operating condition for the winter.  Or, you could sleep an extra hour.
  • Change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Remember, smoke detectors go high and carbon monoxide detectors go low.  This will only take a half hour, so you can use the other half hour to sleep in.

Just a few ideas on how to make good use of your bonus hour this weekend.
