What Time is it?

The other night I woke to howling winds. Howling forcefully, making me wonder whether we would end up in the wizard’s kingdom. But it was not the wind that woke me, it was the fact that my bed reset itself to flat. It is the kind of bed that allows me to raise the head of the bed, or where the knees go, contorting my body to its most comfortable position. I keep the head slightly inclined, and find I sleep best this way.

But – it reset! Say what?! Oh – my clock also says it’s 12:00, and I know that isn’t correct, because last I looked it was after 1:00. Power blip. We had a power blip. Now my clock says it’s three hours later than it is. And. I. Can’t. Figure. Out. How. To. Set. It.

I remember having trouble setting it when I first got it, but I managed and somehow it’s been showing me the right time. Now when I awaken overnight – because I’m old and that happens more often now – I have to wonder what time it is, and mentally deduct three hours from what I’m being shown. That can be difficult at 2:30 in the morning, because my brain shuts down and doesn’t really like being disturbed.

Today, my daughter has said we will work together to set that clock so I won’t have to go around wondering what time it is. Because, there is enough to wonder about, these days, in this world. Like – what the heck is reality anyway?

I have been weaving. I have not been taking pictures of my weaving. Soon, I will do that, and I will share. Because I know you are very interested in what I’ve been weaving. Of course you are.

In the meantime, what time is it? Have we gotten through the inauguration yet? Did we make it without more mayhem and bloodshed? Because. I’ve had enough. Really. I want my most serious problem to be what time is it.

    I think we can all agree we live in the Twilight Zone now.

    I have decided it’s time to choose the (world) battles I focus on, and my choice is to focus on none. I refuse to talk politics at all. Remember the old days when sex, religion and politics were taboo subjects for discussion? I’m there.
    Good luck with your clock! Can you buy a new one? Maybe this one is faulty. I’m sure you and Kat will be able to nut it out between the two of you.
    Looking forward to seeing what you are weaving – I’m definitely interested in seeing your beautiful creations. 🙂

    I see you figured it out. Digital clocks, digital anything can be a challenge to figure out. It took me a couple of days to remember/figure out how to set my pedometer after I changed the battery and it wiped out the info I put in that helps it calculate. It’s a simple pedometer, too. Nothing fancy that hooks up to the internet.

    I am very interested in what you’re weaving. As for reality, I hope it changes very soon.

      It would appear this clock is an Atomic clock, and it would appear I have this clock set for EST instead of PST, because in the middle of the night, it zoomed forward 3 hours. It’s been over a year since I bought the clock to have in my bedroom at my daughter’s, so my memory is less than stellar about it.

  4. The bed moving must have been very alarming!

    Do you know that song–Does anyone really know what time it is? That’s what I’m singing in my head right now. My mom, bless her heart, knows more what time/day/date it is than I do. Hopefully your daughter can help you adjust your clock.

    I 100% get this time slippage thing. I lose whole days sometimes which also, somehow simultaneously, feel a million hours long.

    Me too. I’m commenting a few days after the blessed inauguration and am happy to say I am calmer, more focused, AND I know what time it is. Forward, I say. Let Joe lead the way.


  9. I’m enjoying your style
