Daily Photo: Breakfast Eyes

Beautifully Waiting for Breakfast; Mimi, Bean, Mewsette, Giuseppe, Sunshine.

I love the early morning light at breakfast these days, and I’ll be sad to lose it beginning tomorrow…I know the Five like it too. They are much more animated than when it’s still dark, and I think they like the sun in their kitchen.

“Really,” I told them, “if you weren’t all so beautiful and didn’t look at me with such bright and trusting eyes you’d probably eat breakfast earlier, possibly dinner too.”

Instead I made them wait for their breakfast so I could take a few photos…a bunch of photos, since it takes a few tries to get them all looking at me at once. Mimi, as you can see, was having none of it, sitting back on the corner of the table with her lemon-slice eyes in slits. Often she is right in the middle of all her much larger children, but sometimes the press of them is a bit much for her. She is special, she will have me know.

Here’s another shot of them so everyone who sees these mealtime photos of them doesn’t think they always line up. They have a marvelous sense of composition when you get any number of them together.

And also see another of the many photos I took this morning—it’s of the blue pitcher with the light shining through it, but there’s a cat in it too! They didn’t have to wait for their breakfast for me to take Morning Blue.

  • Great photos Bernadette – It really gives me an idea of how different they are from one another in size and shape, plus it’s the first time I noticed that Bean has a patch of white on his chest!

    • Vicki, that’s the best way to show their differences–just look at the shapes and sizes of their eyes. And Bean is both the runt and the misfit–he has a sexy white thong on his belly too, and white hairs in his armpits.
