the night sky

May 14, 2018

the other night, lighting lit up the sky.  it kept going and going, and I went out and started taking pictures, not confident that any would even show up.  I started taking bursts of photos, up to 40 in a burst, and I probably took about 200 of them. here are my 10 favorites.

is he the real live Rocket Raccoon??

May 8, 2018

early in the evening, when it was still light out, this raccoon appeared on the deck.  look at his smile!  if you inspect it closely you’ll see the bird seeds stuck to the end of his nose (I didn’t even see it, but Bev pointed it out to me).  it looks like he’s grinning!   […]

april…cats, mostly.

April 23, 2018

yeah, a mighty chilly april.  I’ve either been busy working or sitting around waiting for spring to actually arrive. riley is doing his best to adjust to life-at-breakneck-speed that we have around here.  I love how his paw is dangling down like that; he hasn’t done that since. Winnie has had his ups and downs, […]

April 19, 2018

April 8, 2018

i’m convinced now that we’re going from winter to summer, no spring at all.  my poor daffodils have been trying valiantly to bloom but it’s a good thing they haven’t because the snow is going to start again any minute now.  ridiculous. I just hurt my leg somehow, skidding on the floor.  how?  why? the […]

last day at Seagrove Beach

April 4, 2018

next time i’d like to go for a week.  I wish we could find a condo on the beach that allowed cats so we could stay for a month, but on the other hand, would we really want to traumatize our kitties with such a very long car ride?  kevin and I were aggravated being […]

April 2, 2018

  we took our bikes with us on the trip and it was great to have them.  on our second full day there, we biked down the nice bike/walking path alongside county hwy. 30A.  30A is a big deal down there in florida, at least to the people who live/visit there.  we saw 30A books […]
