Our Love Muffin

Posted by thearrow on June 23, 2011

A couple of weeks ago that brown sweater on which he is resting had fallen from my closet. I am very fond of it and wore it for many years; it was a birthday gift from a friend. But it’s wool and at some point it shrank, leaving me wondering what to do with it. I wasn’t going to wear it any more but I didn’t want to throw it away either. Since it was shrunk, I couldn’t give it to someone else either.

Before I finished going through all these options in my head, though, Jinks took possession of it and it’s now his favorite place for snoozing. Which, obviously, I find both cute and flattering. He doesn’t sit on it with his entire body, but rather rests on it as if on a pillow. Lately, I’ve noticed that he dragged an old skirt of mine off a shelf and has expanded his territory.

We think he likes them not just because they’re comfy, but also because they smell of me. Which makes me the Mama Cat 🙂

I took this pic a while ago but have just now managed to post it. And the backlog of unprocessed pics is sticking its tongue out at me, just like this bike.

Astonishing Pics

Posted by thearrow on June 15, 2011

I stumbled upon this site,, and I feel like a fly that shouldn’t attempt to take another shot  ever. The photographs there are simply jaw-dropping.

This picture was taken by Jacky Parker, a photographer whose portfolio you can admire on the site. I didn’t ask for permission to post it, but I hope she doesn’t mind. Enjoy the beauty!
