Daily Photo Reprise: I Thought I’d Make the Bed, 2011

Every day it’s a race to get upstairs before they do so I can flip up the sheet and quilt and cover the pillows. Why? I just like it that way. Gone are the days when I used to do this as soon as I got up; I just don’t

Daily Photo Reprise: National Yarn Day

What is sweeter than a senior tortie cat sleeping on a freshly-finished shawl? As someone who has been a yarn or threadworker for all my life, I can’t pass up National Yarn Day, even though it was yesterday—and my cats celebrate along with me because my family of felines have

From the Archives: Autumn Sun, 2008

A series reminiscent of yesterday’s Sunny Morning, same window opening but totally different bathroom as well as a different cat. Kelly lazily observes something high up the sunny window as the sun’s warmth both shines and reflects on her, from 2008. The light is so warm and the various patterns

Daily Photo Reprise: How Long Did I Sleep?! 2011

Wait a minute, I’m covered with leaves! I thought it was still summer! How long did I sleep?! And I’m how old?! No way! Don’t believe it. I’m just humoring my mom. I laid down here in my favorite spot for a nice cozy nap and she thought it would

Daily Photo Reprise: Mimi Becomes “One of the Girls”, 2010

Here, the “Golden Girls”, the “Tri-color Trio”, my three most senior kitties, Kelly at 17, Peaches at 20 and Cookie at 18, have their dinner on the cabinet in the middle of the kitchen while Mimi longingly, or slyly, I wasn’t sure, looks on. Apparently, she had a plan. Mimi

Vintage Photo: Get a Bath, Pay It Forward, 2010

In photos from this day in August 2010, Dickie, Kelly and Cookie have a chain reaction bath. You get a free bath, you return the favor by giving a free bath to someone else. First, Dickie, the main bath giver of the time, stopped Kelly and gave her a bath

Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie in the Pasta Bowl, 2010

This was the first one of all! Good thing I checked the bowl before I filled it with the mellowed fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette! I warmed my big round pasta bowl in the oven, then set it on the counter while I ran outside to get a couple branches

Daily Photo Reprise: A Little Dose of Afternoon Sweetness, 2011

From August 16, 2012: I have a video to share of total sweetness in a kitty. You might remember that Kelly was my Lead Crochet Tester, and that she immediately occupied anything crocheted in any form—under construction, headed for the wash, being worn by me, it didn’t matter, when Kelly

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Has a Drink, 2012

What legs! Kelly really does have long legs, especially when she does her drinking dance, solidly planting all four paws, then prancing her hind paws and waving her tail while she drinks. There’s something so precious about Kelly drinking; I think it has to do with her timid nature, yet

Daily Photo Reprise: Kelly the Studio Cat

I’ve been waiting for this one to come around. Of all the photos I have of Kelly from the 16 years she lived with me—and there were very, very many—this photo is my favorite, and can you believe she is 17 years old in this photo? Kelly never seemed to
