The secret to successful public speaking

read

When I wake up each morning, these sweet, beautiful eyes greet me. Everything about this little face speaks the comforts of home… Safe. Calm. Unconditional love. Acceptance. The first sunbeam of the day casts a welcoming glow against my safely tucked in feet, still buried underneath the covers. Not one mistake has been made yet, for the […]

Zonked out from all that cat popularity

read

These two are getting more attention than my own ramblings and projects lately. So much so, they needed a nap from all the virtual autographs today.  Fame will do that to you… 🙂 I love that you love them! So while I raced around making more mess than projects today, they were busy sunning themselves. […]

How I shop outdoors for Christmas decor

read

‘Tis the season to bust outdoors to find all Christmas decor’s finest! It was a really chilly day. With temps near or on zero, I bundled up good, grabbed my gloves, and head out to a strip of road known for the best fallen tree finds. We’d had a recent wind storm so I knew […]

Shutter priority where cats are concerned

read

Every so often, my furry friends stay still long enough to capture on film. But that isn’t generally the case. They still love to happily dart from one side of the house to the other. So I was practising with shutter priority on the camera on this day. I’ll admit I’m not very good at […]

read

Did anyone notice I skipped out on posting yesterday?  I was rolling out a huge, wordy one. But when I clicked publish, I lost half of it. A corrupt cut and paste. Not good. And at 1:30 AM, I wasn’t about to pound keys for another hour to fill it back up. Limitation #1 – no more […]

Summer is here! We’ve had a mini heat wave lately and we’ve been trying to find ways to stay cool. One day was just SO hot, all I could do was wander to our back creek, hide under the huge weeping willow and stick my feet in the water. There was simply nothing. else. one. […]

Outdoor pics and cute cats… with an iPhone

read

You can pin this post from HERE (regular pinning isn’t working at the moment!) I went for a little walk behind my house with the iPhone.  This area is a little city owned park that leans against farmland. If you walk just far enough into the chestnut trees where the mowers can’t mow, that’s where […]

Even if you aren’t a cat lover, it would be hard not to fall for these two. So what happens when you ARE a cat lover?  You turn to mush 20,000 times a day. What are the chances of landing a brother and sister tuxedo cat duo, with the girl long haired and the boy […]

cats

I have a little story of joy for you today. I’d been getting some visits from someone’s cat lately. I knew this cat wasn’t a stray, for it was very well fed, healthy, spotlessly clean and wore a cute pink collar. She even smelled pretty. She’d come visit me on our patio while I was […]
