Daily Photo: Mimi on the Catwalk

Mimi on the catwalk! Every home needs a Little Black Cat. She loves to visit the neighbor’s driveway because it’s warm from the sun, and especially walk on their wall. The hill is steep in that direction, as I shared a few weeks ago, and I haven’t really been able to walk up that way since my surgery, so I had to keep telling Mimi “no”. But I walked up that way last week to photograph Mimi through the burning bush—my camera leads in astray sometimes! So when Mimi headed out to the end of the walk and turned to go up the street, I let her.

Monday was a surprisingly nice day when a cold front was forecast, but the front was late and the sun lasted long enough to get the temperature into the 60s. I took a walk to Main Street in the morning when it was still cold but warmed up so that by the time I was home I was carrying my coat and called for Mimi as soon as I opened the door. I knew I had a full afternoon and she sometimes misses her outside time because of my stuff and the short days with the time change and it gets dark so early.

Even as we spent the time outdoors, the overcast began to move across the sky and covered the sun, but we enjoyed the warm temperatures. Mimi found the purrfect stone to sit on to observe the street, now that it’s all cleaned up. She is so precious.

You can see some other lovely autumn photos of Mimi below too.

PS: I’ve been experiencing some edema in the lower part of my surgery leg that concerned me. It began last Friday; I took a walk to take photograph an event on Saturday to help with circulation, then had my foot elevated a good bit on Sunday, which kept me away from my computer. Monday I walked again to pick up a prescription to help it, then helped a few others with cat things, and I’m organizing for some of the new things I’m making too. Honestly, I don’t know how I used to find the time to post each day and respond to comments! I guess I just have to work around it all because I love posting and sharing these things. I’m just glad I’m finally getting around!

Photos from previous years…

Apparently I was busy busy busy at the beginning of November last year too because I had no posts until November 12!

Thank You, 2017

Thank You.

I’m sure Bella is thankful for the box to curl up in and rest her chin on the edge.

The rain changed to snow! I knew it sounded too loud hitting the window. It’s not snowing that hard, but the birds are crazy at the feeders. Great CatTV!

I’m guessing this is why I opened the cookbook onto the counter, not because I wanted to actually look at the recipe. She was on it as soon as I put it down, had a really nice bath and a nap in a nice warm kitchen.

What other photos have I shared around this date in previous years?

Looks like they had a momfest on Mimi while I was away. I came home to find no cats, all were upstairs, and I found this gob on the bed.

Mimi also noted that the brick porch pillar belongs to her as well as me and the rocker. Face rubs feel good.

One of the incredible photos I took on Sunday after transporting a kitty to the clinic from my neighborhood, then taking some time to drive around and capture that perfect autumn day.

In the moment in the way of nature, such treasures in someone’s overgrown corner garden to harvest on this perfect autumn afternoon: cosmos and zinnias in flower and bud and seed, grasses fully ripe, a busy bee and a common sulphur butterfly have a meal; though the season dwindles to its end, all that lives is sipping every last moment. One of many.

And a hint of things to come. Hand-printed Christmas wrapping paper. Not sure Hamlet approves. He probably wants my mess off his table so he can stretch and have a bath.

Where’s Dinner? 2012

Election results? What about dinner?

We don’t always understand our mom, but we can usually get her to focus on things that are important. But this is one of those days when we are losing! We are hoping for dinner very soon, but she’s playing with her computer again.

I don’t even have a television, I check things on my computer, but I have a computer in each room. I’ve been a little distracted today—voting is essential to a democracy and I hope all of you who are US citizens voted today. I was also filled with memories of other election days, my mother, older relatives, all of whom proudly cast their vote and whom I accompanied to the polls in later years, and all of whom are gone now. I wrote a post on my photo blog “Today” when I came back from voting, “A Party on Main Street”, that might explain a little more. (Should have shared this last night!)

For now, I’d better feed these cats, or I’ll be the loser!

For several years before moving in with me, Mimi “belonged” to a neighbor who would not spay her and she had six litters of kittens*. She hunted for food for her kittens, and my yard was her territory. Now that she’s a pampered princess she still likes to indulge now and then, just to keep in shape, though she is on a leash when she is outdoors with me. Read more and purchase.
