So much color on sunny days! Giuseppe and Jelly Bean cuddle on the old purple shawl I keep in a cozy corner of the bathroom for Kelly when she spends her time in there. The boys discovered it this morning and could barely fit on it since it’s folded several times to be nice and thick and to fit her.
With the extra sunlight the purple was vibrant, not so much here but eye-catching nonetheless, as well as Bean’s big citron eyes in his dark face. Poor Bean, I had to keep tapping my pencil on the bathroom door and calling his name to make him look up at me so I could get the details in his face! I can fill them in from memory, but it was an odd angle and I wanted to be sure it was right.
Totally realistic color today, no fanciful green and orange and blue cats! I just loved the way they looked on the purple shawl, such a simple composition, but so graceful and lovely.

Do you think they’ll let me through?
It’s not too often there’s enough sunlight in the stairway to the second floor to photograph black cats, but the sun was bright today and the trees are still bare so the sunlight poured into the window, lighting and warming the narrow space. And, of course, wherever sun is plentiful, so are cats.
When I stepped on the bottom landing to go upstairs, I was confronted with the guardians of the stairway. They would not let me pass until I spent some time playing with them. I knew they were hoping I’d toss at least one bizzy ball up the steps for them, our favorite game, which I did, bringing forth the boys to participate. Soon I had all five cats running up and down the stairs after a series of bizzy balls, then ping pong balls, crackle balls, then a variety of any small toys that were handy. One of these days when I figure out where to set the tripod I’ll video this big game.
