Daily Photo Reprise: Girl Talk, 2011

“Girl Talk”

Now what do you suppose they’re saying?

I hardly think they’re sharing real “girl talk” about cute guys and new clothes, not these two “experienced” girl cats. Besides that, they’re fixed and I presume they’re happy with their natural attire.

Is Cookie imparting some sage advice to Mimi as the older kitty to the next generation? Are they sharing stories of life on the streets?

Are they plotting a takeover of the kitchen and all the food within it? Should I worry?

Do you suppose I ever reclaimed my cookbook?

. . . . . . .

This is sweeter to me now than it was when I took it, and it was darned sweet then; it’s one of the many photos I took of Cookie mentoring Mimi during her last year. Mimi is clearly intent on taking in everything Cookie has to impart to her.

In the Kitchen With Cookie 2014 and other calendars from The Creative Cat

I included this photo, along with other photos from this wonderful morning in the kitchen, in February in In the Kitchen With Cookie, a calendar featuring my photos of Cookie interacting with properly-warmed pasta bowls, enamel pots and glass salad bowls in the series called “In the Kitchen With Cookie”! I’d first published it in Cookie’s memory in 2013, and by request republished the same photos with updated calendars in 2014.

The calendar is a 5.5″ x 8″ spiral-bound calendar printed on 100# matte-finish text paper so it’s easy to write on but the art still looks bright and crisp. I decided on that the for the sake that it can be bound across the top so that it hangs like a wall calendar, or bound down the left so that it opens like a journal.

Each page includes one main photo of Cookie caught in the act which was either taken during that particular month or is themed for that month plus the recipe that corresponds. Other photos of Cookie from the same and related explorations will decorate open areas on the calendar page. A monthly calendar includes basic holidays, moon phases and a few other things and room for notes at the bottom.

If you’d like to to purchase a In the Kitchen With Cookie 2014 calendar as a gift or for yourself, you can find it in my Etsy shop.

Seasonally, I make wood-mounted items, placemats, wall art and other items featuring these photos of Cookie in my kitchen. You can find these in my Etsy shop by searching in the category for “Cookie” or “cat gift items”  or specific search terms like “placemat” “wood”.
