I’m sure Bella is thankful for the box to curl up in and rest her chin on the edge.
From Instagram, November 7
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!
One of my shoes and a lollipop swiped from leftover Halloween candy, Basil’s day is complete.
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?
Lovin’ on Mom, 2016
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.
Blurry but I like it.
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!
