Daily Photo: Happy Summer, and Going to Work

Mimi is looking forward to many lovely mornings in the garden. We hope you enjoy the longest day of the year, and get enough sleep on the shortest night of the year!

Evening at my desk.

Today was “Take Your Pets to Work Day”. Well, you see my pets at work with me every day, so what would be different about today?! Nothing, really, but here is a photo of their before-dinner nap (kind of an inexact panorama) as the sun is going down behind the houses across the street, all tucked in among my stacks and baskets and bins; Mimi awakens, has a quick bath and goes back to sleep. Soon they’ll awaken and let me know it’s dinner time, no matter what else I have planned. I enjoy the daily course of events just as much as they do. They make my day complete.

I had originally planned a post with photos of my cats “going to work with me” through the years, but there were soooo many I had to stop. I didn’t want to use them all, but couldn’t decide. Maybe next year, or maybe I’ll sprinkle them in on other days.

  • What a Delight, Dear Bernadette, to see Mimi in her garden, looking so pretty, calm n attentive, in amongst all that cool greenery.. n those delicious little scattered flecks of forget-me-not blue.. n butter-cup yellow.
    And I Love the photos n drawings, n images all, of your five beautiful, big, black helpers helping with whatever it is in particular you are doing in any given day. Love the images of them, many n various, on, n, in [Guiseppe] your bed.. n in the windows, n having Fun any n every where around their home.
    Thank you for this ray of Sunshine that arrives, unfailingly, to cheer my every day. I’m sorry, I’m not always over here to comment, but I’m there every day relishing this bounty of yours that you are prepared to share with us, n, from the South of England, I Thank You for it.

  • The photo of Mimi in the garden is purrfect. The green surrounding her is such a luscious color. A perfect photo for the first day of summer. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
