Calendar Girls - Lucky
There's a definite feeling of autumn in the air, my favourite season. I've been a bit lazy about my daily walk lately. I walk every lunchtime during the week because there's a coffee & a chance to sit & read for 20 mins in the middle of it. The weekends, though, have been either very hot or very wet & I need to get back into the habit of going for a walk every day now that summer's finally over. This weekend, though, has been lovely, crisp mornings & sunny afternoons. I walked both days &, as today is the Labour Day holiday, I'll be walking again today.
Lucky & Phoebe love this weather too. I think all cats do because it was Abby's favourite time of year as well. I've had the camera with me constantly lately because I'm trying to get the perfect calendar shot of both the girls. The Animal Aid shelter where I adopted the girls produces a lovely calendar each year. They feature 12 of their rehomed pets (plus one on the cover) & they have a competition to choose who will be featured. It's not just cats & dogs. This year's calendar also had a pig called Gavin & Tilly, the guinea pig. The winners are the pets who get the most votes. So, I feel like the paparazzi, sneaking up on the girls & snapping away at every opportunity.
I already have some lovely photos of them but the perfect shot might be the next one I take. I would love to see them in the calendar, the only trouble will be choosing which photo to enter. I have until June to decide so there's plenty of time. These are just a few of the photos of Lucky I took this last weekend. This one of Lucky on my reading chair is probably the most typical. I'd just got up to pour another cup of tea & Lucky waits patiently until I return so she can go back to sleep in my lap.
I'll post some photos of Phoebe on Wednesday including a rare shot of them together.
I'm an avid reader who loves middlebrow fiction, 19th century novels, WWI & WWII literature, Golden Age mysteries & history. Other interests include listening to classical music, drinking tea, baking cakes & enjoying the antics of my cats, Lucky & Phoebe.
