Staying Put

How did she know...cats are so intuitive.
I really needed to finish a pet portrait soon
and it happens to be of a cat.
Ellie May sat on me this morning so I had no excuse to wander
away and get distracted with another project.

Somehow I managed to balance the drawing pad on
the arm of the chair while Ellie May sat on my lap.

I actually nearly finished it and I thank
Ellie May so much for her calm and steady presence
that helped to keep me focused!

A Gift

Yesterday morning, Brody was delighted
to welcome a large box that was
delivered to our home.

It was a gift from my Dad...
to see what was in it just click here!

We're thrilled with it!

Thanks so much Dad!

Everyone's Napping Except...

Sweet little Ellie May snuggled in on this overcast
drizzly day...

Polly looked so comfy with the
napping raccoon and dove...

while Brody was ready for action...
in waiting
for me to make a move up the stairs.

Brody isn't too fond of bananas!
When D let him sniff it, Brody
scrunched up his nose...in fact I
think he is afraid of them for shortly
thereafter he fled the couch!

They're Back!

In my October 2nd post here the baby doves were
still in their nest in the trellis.

I think this may be them in our birdbath this morning!

Was so happy to see them...it was magical!
