I wondered how many timepieces, fellow bloggers had to manually change last weekend.
Former homeowners, we now live in a converted mill apt, where we have no shortage of clocks. Out reset tally was just over 20 clocks which included appliances, clock radios, cordless phone, wall clocks, wristwatches and vehicles. Thankfully, the smart phones, tablets, desktop PCs, and Fitbit updated themselves.)
Here's our breakdown.
There were 4 kitchen clocks reset: stove, microwave, coffee maker, and wall clock (the oldest in this group at +20 years).
The living room (top ↓ image) included 4 on our "wall of clocks" a reference to living here at Clocktower Place. One in this group is from my late mother's kitchen; one was a recycle rescue and the others were bought new. The clock on the bottom left is on the outer porch; the firefighter's clock in the PC room was a retirement gift from Grenville's years in service.
In the bedroom, there were 3 more to be reset: an alarm clock on each nightstand and a cordless phone on mine.
Almost finished, but couldn't forget 2 small mantel clocks on shelves in the dining room and guest bathroom. (The clock on the left was a gift from almost 20 years ago; the one on the right was a thrift store "find" 2 years ago.)
If you've been counting along, the total is now at 15 with 4 more added to include my wristwatches and Grenville's (not shown). One of these watches had a dead battery, no resetting needed for that one.
Finally, there were 2 digital dashboard clocks reset in each of our cars which are older without auto updating. We use a pen tip to reset both.
Earlier, I made reference to our current residence, called Clocktower Place, which is a former textile mill now converted to "apartment homes." The building has 2 tower clocks, which are maintained and manually reset twice yearly by the maintenance staff.
Your turn — How many timepieces did you manually reset in your home?
