Sunday Selfie

Today's selfie is all sorts of things. It's a sleepy selfie. It's a sunny selfie. And it's definitely a closeup selfie. See?

Evan hopes you all have a Sunday filled with as many sun puddles and snoozes as his! He also hopes, though, that no one shoves a camera in your face as he so rudely experienced.

Doodle of the Day:

Today's doodle was inspired by the flashback drawing I shared on Friday. In short, that doodle from the past was of a chemist kitty growing flowers in her laboratory. In addition, on Friday our little bit of trivia at the end of our post was about Albert Einstein and his fondness for animals. Apparently, according to historical sources, Einstein had a cat named Tiger. So, one thing led to another, and our doodle for today is this one here:

Did you know?
Did you know that the word "tabby" originally referred to a striped silk material? The term dates back to the 16th century and stems from the French word "tabis". This striped silk that we can thank for the word "tabby" was a material originally produced near Baghdad.

That is a fabulous selfie!

Nice doodle, a cat would make a great inspiration in the lab, they are so curious.

It doesn’t surprise me that cats will co-opt the name of something fancy to call themselves.

That's a great Einstein doodle. Evan is such a precious little napper, nice photo. I had no idea Tabby came from a silk pattern.

Evan is a cutie. I love the drawing. And I did not know that about tabbies. :)

Who wouldn't want a ginger tabby cat with a white tail tip on one's head while you worked? I do!
