This is the train station on Friday November 4th at about 7 am.  It was actually darker than this (my camera picks up ambient light and magnifies it).  You can see that the lights in the parking lot are still on.  This is Daylight Savings Time.

Fast forward to Monday, November 7th and the view changes.

This is the same shot at about the same time.  Look at how much lighter it is.  This is what I've been waiting for.  I hate getting up for work in the dark.  It's so hard.

Now, it's dark when the alarm goes off but by the time we leave the house, it's light and it feels like daytime. 

What a difference an hour makes.

Btw, Em gave me a gift card for Signature needles for my birthday.  Since I had to pay for shipping for one pair, I ordered a second pair as well.  And let me tell you, they are every bit as good as they are touted to be.  They are sharp and easy to use and not too slippery. 

I think I might be in love.

Wow, look at those gorgeous needles! I'd love to try them out but worry that I will be ruined for any other needles!

I love daylight savings too, for the same reason as you. It is so much easier to get up and about if it isn't so dark.

i've heard and read about signature needles. Each time I see a photo I get a little bit more excited by the idea of trying them!
