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: Studio Cats Working Hard

Bean takes advantage of all the color-balanced lights to make certain his little white thong is sparkling clean. I have different uses for my studio accommodations and all the lights I’ve installed, but on a cool rainy day I’m outnumbered in there. Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine permitted me a

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: Four on the Floor

Three Little Four settle in the very center of the rug in my office for a nap after playing while Giuseppe finishes his bath. That’s little Bean over on the left, Sunshine in front and Mewsette curled around the back. October 4 was apparently the first day I let the

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

In the Kitchen With Cookie: A Cookie in Every Pot

This pot being a one-gallon pot, I now know that Cookie’s total volume is just about one gallon of tortoiseshell ingenuity. Cookie napped in the cooking pot on this day in 2010 and was the September feature photo in my 2013 calendar In the Kitchen With Cookie. . . .

Vintage Photo: Autumn 1974

So this is not my photo, and I’m not sure whose shadow that is at the bottom but I’d bet it’s that baby’s mother. She’s my niece Jennifer, and this was autumn 1974. That shadow would be my sister, Cynthia, who took most of the photos I have from that

From the Archives: August 15, 2006

When I looked up “Stripes on Stripe”, the photo of Stanley that I posted on August 15, I had a wonderful time looking through all the photos in the folder taken on the same day. It was apparently a hot August day, but Stanley and I had been in the

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
