Day 10 — Joy Points — 40 Days of Writing, Spring Session


Daylight Saving Time didn’t mean as much to me its first official day, Sunday.

It is today — well tonight — when I will feel its actually glory.

When I rolled into our driveway after my afternoon shift, Chuck was out on the terrace, greeting me with cocktails to commemorate the daylight — something we haven’t come home to at the end of our work day, since October.

We spent 10-15 minutes out there, just soaking up the pleasant change.

Afterwards, feeling that a celebratory dinner was in order, I threw together appetizers consisting of pork won tons, pancetta-wrapped shrimp and fried panela cheese (similar to fried mozzarella, but with Mexican cheese).

As I sit here with my glass of wine, eager to dive into our “small plate” style dinner, I am sort of in wonder that something I have absolutely no control over, Daylight Saving Time, can bring me so much joy — overwhelming joy.

The world can be a crazy, unpredictable place. I’ll take joy points in any way, shape and form that I possibly can.

Food’s getting cold. Cheers!
