Sputnik, my siamese cat, looking pensive

Sputnik, my Siamese Cat

Autumn arrived last week. In summer, it is too hot to be near the window, but now that the temperatures have cooled, Sputnik spends the mornings on her bed by the patio window. I wonder what she is thinking?

Great shot... I wonder if she's thinking about food, or snoozing?

They have a way of doing that don't they

What a great shot -- she does look like a deep thinker! Yes, what is on her mind? Food, chasing a mouse, taking beauty rest or just loving thoughts of Mom?

Both of you have a great day!

She's BEAUTIFUL ... clearly lost in thought about kitty things ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Lost in a beautiful day dream about mouse hunts of the past. That is a really lovely cat, I would like to cuddle her.

Your cat is gorgeous, I am sure she is thinking of past adventures and planning her next one.

What a lovely kitty - and that is no doubt what she is thinking ;-)

Ah Sputnik is so beautiful. Do her points darken in the colder weather or is she an indoor cat and not affected?
Tracy said…
Oh, Sputnik...I could just hug you! I'm imagining she's thinking how cozy to be in a little bed by the patio--still able to admire what's going on but snooze at the same time--very smart. ;o) Wishing you both a very happy week, Juana ((HUGS))

Cats and Dogs

At the beginning of April I took a long bike ride - 38 miles- before the Spring rains returned. I'm hoping to get another ride in this week. I stopped at a cafe and met Luna. Her owner was inside and she kept me company at the outdoor table where I was sitting. She didn't quite know what to think of having her photo taken.

On my walk to the market, I meet these outdoor cats everyday. They have been spayed and released to where they were found and have been living in place for a few years now. The man in the red jacket comes by every morning to feed them and another woman in the afternoon to check their bedding/cat houses and health. The cats know everyone's schedules and will often see me before I even see them.

Since I can't have any pets due to my rental lease, it warms my heart to be able to have these daily visits with these community cats and the dogs I meet along the way. And because of these cats, I've made some new human friends.

Japanese Paper Lanterns

Tradtional papermaking in Japan requires patience, experience and attention to detail and a strong back. Before I leave Japan, I hope to visit a washi papermaking artisan's workshop. Mino in Gifu Prefecture is well-known for their handmade washi paper. has some wonderful photos showing Mino's process of making washi.

This past winter I was having lunch and noticed the beautiful paper lanterns in the restaurant near to my workplace. There are shadows within the lamps as well as on the ceilings. I really want to learn how to make one of these!

Whidbey Island, Prat Loop, Ebey's Landing State Park

At the end of September we took an overnight bicycle trip and stayed at the circa 1907 Captain Whidbey Inn. This was our second time this year to stay there. Both times we have stayed in the main log building. It is old and creaky which is part of its charm. The rooms in the main log building do not have a T.V. and I love that feeling of getting away from it all.

From the Inn, there are lots of local places accessible by bicycle. For this latest trip, we rode our bicycles from the Inn to the Pratt Loop which begins off of the Kettles Trail.

I've taken the Kettles Trail in the past when riding to  Fort Ebey State Park.

The National Park Service has a detailed map of the Kettles trail system and other trails that connect to it here:
