From the Archives: Watch Your Own Berries, We’re Busy

On this date back in 2008 Namir and Cookie and I enjoyed a summer morning in the back yard. The last week of June is raspberry time in my back yard, and I’d gone around with a bowl to pick whatever was ripe, and likely I was photographing insects and

From the Archives: Everyone on the Bed, June 12, 2007

My entire feline family at the moment on June 12, 2007, clockwise from top: Lucy, Cookie, Peaches, Mr. Peach, Namir and Kelly. Only eight years ago, and the styles were completely different. I have a few of these through the years, all the cats in the household gathered together. It

It’s Tortie Girls Time!

The gold and orange and yellow of tortoiseshell cats may seem more of an autumn theme, but for me those bright colors always meant June and sunshine. I love to welcome the summer with my tortie girls Cookie and Kelly on as many items as I can make. Not everyone

Daily Photo Reprise: Tortie Sez, “Game Over.” 2011

This is the tortie version of, “Get over it, mom. It doesn’t make sense to get mad at the computer because it doesn’t care what you think. We do. Just pet one of us and everything will be okay.” Last year I had a big pile of work that wasn’t

From the Archives: Salad Days, Morning in the Garden, 2009

On this day in 2009, Namir watches for critters while Cookie supervises my harvest, or perhaps she’s planning on a sip of my coffee, in the controlled chaos of my garden in springtime. Cookie’s determined expression as she walks toward me means she had been away for “a while” and

From the Archives: The Garden Party, 2009

Cookie and Mimi were probably just enjoying the sun on this day in 2009, but I also appreciated them keeping others’ prying paws from my precious tomato seedlings reaching for the sun on the table by this window. I have no idea what the conversation was about that I interrupted,

Daily Photo Reprise: Catnip Party, 2011

Three of the girls organize an impromptu catnip party on the sunny landing. Cookie was enjoying the catnip candy cane first, and invited Mimi and Mewsette to take turns biting, licking and rubbing their faces on the upstairs catnip candy cane. Cookie gets her turn. Then it’s time for Mewsette

Spring Adventures, Cookie and Mimi

Typically on the first day of spring I head out to work in my garden to celebrate, but not today, with rain and then snow, the soil is still partially frozen and what’s not is sopping wet, so today we remember a warmish sunny spring day in 2011 when Cookie

Wishful Thinking

“Our life is shaped by our mind, for we become what we think.” ~Gautama Buddha, The Dhammapada as translated by Eknath Easwaran I’ve never been one to be dissatisfied with the season at hand. What’s the point? I’ll put my energies to more productive activities, or like Moses napping below,

Vintage Photo: My Studio Window, March 1995

My first black cat, Kublai, sits on the windowsill in the sun in my studio, watching me work, sometime in March 1995. Seeing my cats on the windowsill of the room I designated as my studio has been a view I’ve enjoyed since I moved in here. It’s my spare
