“Sitting Pretty” – Watercolor
My little Cassie Girl – I am actually quite proud of this one!
And then there are those days when you look across the room and see this small beige fuzzy thing by your sliding door that looks like it has a tail. And there in her little warm bed is Little Misssy Princess Floofster Cassie SassyPants resting her chin on the side wall and giving you that bored look. And as you slowly approach it, she sits up and watches you closely. Gently, you tap it with your foot. This brings on that tilted head, Dafuq you doing mom look from her. Still unsure, you go and get a couple of paper towels and pick it up for inspection. This causes the little Floofster to cock her head in the other direction, then reach out her paw with a “Want me to help your with that?” look. There really are times when one thinks they do these things deliberately to mess with their humans. Seems I forgot to finish this paragraph. After carefully examining the fuzzy object, it appears that my companion has decided to take up felting sculpting and produce a baby mouse shaped hairball. Maybe she just wants her work to be displayed in the house with her mommy’s.
And on another note. I filled the bird feeder in the back yard with the lower half having just the wild bird seed, then topped it with the black sunflower seeds. Just cuz it looked a bit cool. They actually figured out how to pick at the seeds so they could get to the sunflower seed and had them wiped out with only a tiny dent in the regular seed. Another thing that surprised me was discovering the goldfinches also had a preference to the sunflower seeds. Damn things are bigger than their beaks! I am guessing I need to go get some more proper sugar for the hummingbird feeder this weekend, as they keep buzzing my window. They will actually hover in front of it as if they are saying, “Hey! Fill out damn feeder as well.” I would, but I forgot to buy their sugar the last time I went shopping.
The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend, so I think I will go work on my fire pit, since no one wants to fly up to help me with it. I’ll take the camera with me and see if I can get some good pictures of some of my feathered friends.
|Hello there again! It’s Cassie, in case you forgot. Don’t listen to any of the humans who try and tell you that I am Missy Floof. I will put up with the little princess as I am sure that will result in the generous offerings of tasty treats. They’re in the drawer in the end table, by the way. Feel free to fish some out and make an offering.Okay, it seems mom has been working a bit in the garden and there are pictures and stories to tell you about it. And no pictures of me at the moment. We don’t need to give mom more evidence to support her theory that I drool on myself. Its really just an odd play of the light. Trust me. Here, let me show you. *lick lick* See? All gone. Uhm, never there! Well, carry on!|
Well this little tree has sure perked up and fluffed out from the bare sticks coming out of the ground a couple of weeks ago. One on either side of the door. Guardians and blessings on the comings and goings of the home.
And the morning begins with such lovely blue skies with a bounce of clouds off in the distance. Cloud watching has always been such a wonderful pastime, and I spent far too many years living in an area where there was so little of it. Here you can spend days and days just watching the amazing clouds that play in the skies.
The fairies have been quite busy gathering together this lovely blue bouquet. But it seems there is also a small faction of artist fairies that have painted some Art Nouveau additions they are attempting to sneak into the scene.
And what garden would be complete without a place to hang and dry the hearts collected during the weeks escapades?
|Hmmmm? Scarlet darts!!|
|I don’t think I will ever get tired of looking at these lovely flowers. The stark contrasts in the colors with their white petals vivid yellow stamens. I am a bit proud of this shot as it got a lot of likes on my Google + feed.|
|As she looks out upon the garden about her and contemplates the world as she knows it.|
|The sun in me recognizes and honors the sun that is in you!|
Whee! New toy! Mom is so very thoughtful in giving me such new and interesting toys and leaving them in places she knows I will find them. Not quite as good as treats, but I do enjoy them!
|Oh! Hi there! hehehehehe, didn’t see you come in. No! I am sure mom meant for me to play with these. Why else would she have left them laying on the bed where I could find them? You’re not going to tell her are you? She might not give me extra treats if you do.|
|Okay, so here’s the mission for the morning. To turn the dirt in as many of these compartments as my energy will allow for. I will obviously not need to engage in any additional modes of exercise this day.|
|Sometimes I just utterly amaze myself!!! I would have been happy to have completed a couple of those squares. But, I actually managed to get ALL of them done. And I found many large stones in the process. I forgot to take a picture of the fire area, but I made a circle about halfway around it. I figure if I dig up enough stones, maybe I can accumulate enough to make a real fire pit. On the downside, I didn’t find any bones. Ah well! Can’t win them all.|
|And I have beans sprouting up!!! Though it seems something ate three of the bean types. Those critters need to be bones fertilizing my garden!!!|
|Ah, you are done? I have spent a pleasant time watching one of my new big screen kitty TVs that came with mom’s new house. Hope you had a fun time. Oh, and before you leave, can you toss me another treat? This sunbathing is hard work and I have worked up quite an appetite. Actually, if you could make that two, that would be great!|
