We had an outing to The Huntington Library today. We made this plan last week. The weather was getting warmer and I packed things I needed to protect me from sunlight and the heat. My skin is still sensitive to the heat and the ray of the sun, so I need to be careful. When we got up this morning, I saw the unusual hazy sky. As I looked north, the mountains were disappeared.
The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based educational and research institution established by Henry E. Huntington (1850–1927) and located in Los Angeles County in San Marino, California. In addition to the library, the institution houses an extensive art collection with a focus in 18th- and 19th-century European art and 17th- to mid-20th-century American art. The 500 acres property includes approximately 120 acres of specialized botanical landscaped gardens, the “Japanese Garden”, the “Desert Garden”, and the “Chinese Garden”, along with the Rose Garden, Australian Garden, Herb Garden, Shakespeare Garden. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huntington_Library
The haze in the sky blocked the heat from the sun. It turned out to be a better day for me. We walked for three hours and visited some of the Exhibits and several Gardens. The structure for the climbing roses in the Rose Garden is beautiful.

Last weekend was my first time watching The Frankenstein Chronicles, the Netflix TV series with Sean Bean as John Marlott. My husband started watching it last Thursday night. He was watching Season 1, Episode 2 when it caught my eyes with Sean Bean’s familiar face. After I found out that it was the Frankenstein story, I started watching it half-heartedly. I’m not a horror movie fan. I don’t watch scary movies or TV shows at night. They give me nightmares. But these Frankenstein series were good at staying with the detective story rather than a scary one. I found myself wanting to watch what happened next. We stayed up three nights to watch the 2 seasons with 12 episodes. It was Saturday night at 1:00 a.m. (on Sunday) when we finished the last episode. We slept in the next mornings.
We missed church, inevitably, because we got up late. By 3:30 p.m. I started noticing the time on my computer and my phone was different than the time on the clocks that need to be set manually. We went on a late lunch, using the lunch coupon that was good from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cashier politely asked, “Do you have a dinner coupon?” So, I used a dinner coupon. I started questioning about what happened to the time difference. That was when the possibility of time change came up. But it was only March 11, I thought. Yes, spring forward, fall back. Spring hasn’t come yet.
As soon as I got home, I searched on the internet of Daylight Saving Time in California. It was confirmed that we missed changing the clocks this year!
Every year I pay close attention to Daylight Saving Time starts and ends and promptly change all the clocks by 10:00 p.m. on Saturday (who would get up at 2:00 a.m. the first day of Daylight Saving Time to change the clocks?). Somehow, I let the announcement slipped out of my mind. I surprised myself!
Some countries start Daylight Saving Time on March 11. Many countries start on March 25, and some countries don’t have it. Did you miss changing the clock if your country starts on March 11?
