Only yesterday the sun shone warm on my fur and the windows were open to the breeze, leaves tossed in the wind and birds were everywhere. But we have the feeling it was the last warm day. So we all gathered upstairs and took our turns at the open window and tried to inhale enough fresh air to last the winter, along with memories to last forever.

How Do I Get Anything Done? 2013
Sunshine is determined to make my workday both beautiful and fun, all with his own unique abilities. He positions himself on my desk with part of himself overlapping my keyboard and mousepad so I’m sure to notice him, then he makes sure I get a close look at those dazzling peridot eyes. That might be enough for some cats, but not for Mr. Sunshine.
His next move at enhancing my enjoyment of my day is to slowly roll back and forth a few times and wave his paws. Eventually, he knows, I will rub his belly.
Then he rolls over on his back and while I’m distracted and incapacitated by my camera he hits a few keys on my keyboard.
As you can see, there was a period of time when I got no work done, but it was time well-spent.

Through the Looking Glass, and What Mimi Found There, 2012
This is a reflection of a reflection, with a reflection of reality as well.
Indeed it does look as if Mimi is ready to step into the looking glass; that mirror is at an angle in the corner next to the window and the reflections are uniquely angled and difficult to achieve.
But this photo, backward from the way it is seen in life, is of a reflection—in a mirror across the room from the window! I have a full-length mirror on one panel of the bathroom bi-fold door so that I can see myself from top to bottom before I face the world, and to give the bathroom the feel of a little more space. In the reflection in that mirror I can see an angle I’d never be able to achieve otherwise, at least not without also seeing myself in that mirror. But that also explains the odd greenish cast and the random light and dark blurry spots; the mirror on the door is rather old, like many other things around here.
Either way, Mimi and I both had an adventure with this photo shoot today.
