When I awaken each morning, I need to know a multitude of information. Of course, the first thing is that I want to know what time it is, in case there is the rare chance I can steal a few more precious moments of sleep. Then, I like to know what the temperature is. Is it going to be a sweat pants kind of day or can I slide into some capris and a short-sleeved shirt? It’s always good for me to know immediately what the date is, too. What if it’s a bank holiday? No mail. But perhaps most important, it’s critical for me to know what day I’ve just awoken to. It could be a Friday but I’m thinking it’s only Wednesday. Or it could be Monday yet I awake imagining it’s Thursday. So, it’s great to have all of this information at my fingertips – or in front of my sleepy eyes first thing. That’s why I’m a big fan of the Multifunction Desk Clock. I do nothing immediately in the morning except open my eyes to glance over at the friend on my night table and a wealth of information is right there in front of me. I’m all about simplicity and letting others (or clocks in this instance) do the dirty work for me.
