Save the Daylight, Save the World

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! I'm going back to the future. Do you want to come?

KATIE:  Back to the future? You can't go back to something that's in the future

WAFFLES:  It worked for Michael J. Fox. 

KATIE:  Life is not a movie, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  Maybe it should be. You know, with popcorn and nachos and stuff.

KATIE:  Fine. So why exactly do you want to go back to the future?

WAFFLES:  To save the daylight, Boss! 

KATIE:  This wouldn't have anything to do with daylight savings, would it?

WAFFLES:  That's what I said! We have to save the daylight! You know, SAVE THE DAYLIGHT, SAVE THE WORLD!

KATIE:  Wow, Waffles really takes this daylight savings stuff seriously.

Tick Tock!
It's that time again. This weekend, sometime in the middle of the night between Saturday and Sunday, our clocks will have to leap forward. Meanwhile, we'll be LOSING an hour of sleep. It seems like just yesterday we pushed the clocks back and pulled the blankets over our eyes to enjoy that extra hour of slumber. Daylight savings giveth and taketh away. Year after year after year.

We don't have many clocks in the house, so springing forward or falling back isn't too big of a job. Our oven and microwave have magic superpowers and change themselves automatically, just like our smartphones and computers. Glogirly's watch, on the other hand, may or may not be displaying the correct time. Ever. 

As usual, whether we're springing forward or falling back, Katie and Waffles are most concerned with what that means for the morning meal service. Don't worry, no cats will go hungry here.

About Today's Photos and Paintings
A couple of summers ago we featured Splendid Beast custom pet portraits on our blog. We have three hanging in our home love them SO much. Photos just don't do them justice...the attention to detail is exquisite. They make Glogirly smile every single day.

Here's our original post about them with some great photos of the other portraits they made for us.


  1. My human is just glad that we don't have a therapy cat visit on Sunday! She has to get up early and would not appreciate losing another hour of sleep on top of that.

  2. We wished they’d leave the time one way or the other!

  3. mom says she would happily do without this time change thing - go forth and make it stop Waffles!!

  4. Hey Waffles, seeing you in your space suit makes me think you really need to learn about Goose the cat from the new Captain Marvel movie! You could've played him and been paid in chicken. Maybe the sequel?

  5. OH! What wonderful art! I'm going to save my pennies for one with Manny and Chili Bruce!

  6. I sure wish we could get rid of DST. . .because it gets harder to adjust to each year.

  7. We're supposed to have nachos when the humans watch movies? Corn chip party on the sofa!

  8. Mum says they could change to DST all year long. Specially since she doesn't have to get up for work anymore.

  9. we can't go back to the following week... ?

  10. Whoa! Telling time is hard. TW once went an entire year without changing her watch and only once did she goof up.
