Same Place Same Time

In Saskatchewan,
we do not participate in Daylight Savings.
Our time is our time.
We do not have to get up or go to bed earlier.
We just have to figure out at what time
our favorite TV shows are now on at!


And when you are a cat, and sleep 16 hours a day,
whether there is an extra hour of daylight
in the morning or at night
is of no consequence... :)

“Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't
own it, but you can use it. You can't keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.”
~ Harvey MacKay

I am envious of you right now. On work days, I get up at 4:00am, sooo, tomorow morning it will really be 3:00am and that is just plain cruel. I want to be a furry cat next time around. Spontaneous doesn't care what time it is either. :)

Hi Catherine, I'm jealous of you... I hate going through this 'clock changing' twice a year down here. STUPID.... My poor ole body takes days to get used to the changes..... Ugh!

Love that last statement by Harvey MacKay...

Have a great week.
Hugs

ROFL!! I'm with Betsy... my brain goes to war on me twice a year and poops me out for about a week, each time.

The deeper recesses KNOW it's not the time the clock now says, even though the frontal lobe is trying reasonably explain the weird concept of DST. ;-)

I wish humans wouldn't mess with the time, it's not theirs to mess with.

You know, I embarrassingly didn't know that SK didn't change time. I just learned something new... but, I really should have known (and assumed) that already ;D
And I'm with Kat, and supremely envious of it, too!

I love the cat clock! And lucky you not having to change the time. I find it a terrible thing, I am NOT a morning person and not it's even worse :)

Congratulations for not taking part in daylight saving time! It was established during WWII to keep the machines working longer for the war effort and afterwards business thought it was a good idea to keep it.

My feeling is that we need to go back to regular time. Of course I would like to see New Year celebrated on the first day of spring when it is celebrated in many other parts of the worlds.

Thank you for sharing,
Egmont

PS: I love the image of Banjo, ignoring time . . .

Catherine said...

Egmont, I did not know that was the reason they started daylight savings! Look what we learned today! :)

Indeed, to be a cat and oblivious to time. You are hungry, you eat. You are tired, you sleep. You want to play, you play. Ha!

I like gaining an extra hour in the fall but hate losing one in the spring. I had heard daylight savings time was started to help the farmers have more daylight in the summer to help them work the fields longer. Whatever the reason, it's silly. Here in the US, only Arizona never changes their time since they don't recognize daylight savings.

I love that photo of Banjo! I can almost hear him purring!

When we lived in Queensland there was a debate about daylight savings. People were against it because- get this- the extra hour of daylight would fade their curtains... hahaha!

bad penny said...

Oh your blog is lovely & your photographs stunning ...thanks for visiting mine.
I HATE the clock change - it confuses my animals !

MedaM said...

Daylight saving time is observed in my country and I don’t like it at all. But, I cannot do anything against it.
Your photos are great especially the second one. Banjo is adorable.

Alina said...

Banjo is just precious and quite lucky :0) Lovely poem by Harvey MacKay, so very true! xxx

Banjo looks pretty oblivious to everything ... in re: to your question, the Brownie belonged to my mother ... I don't know if it would still work or not

Anya said...

We have summer/winter time

Marg said...

Oh you lucky people that don't do daylight savings time. I wish we didn't. I like it light in the mornings. Anyway this is our first visit here and it is a terrific blog. Love the picture of Banjo. He is doing what we would like to be doing. He does look comfy. Have a great day.

Cheri said...

It takes me days to get used the to the new time but I do love having daylight longer in the day. They could leave it this way for me.
