While the Cat's Asleep...



While Polly was almost asleep,
these cute little mice would play...


Polly is very calm and tolerant...
so the geese gave it a try!

today with her companions!

Early Morning Snow

Ellie May watched me early this morning as
I swept the freshly fallen snow from
the path to the studio.

It was a winter wonderland
til the sun appeared...

The Unexpected!

While driving up to Portland yesterday
to stock up on staples at TJ's
with D we were traveling down the
highway when something caught my eye.

I saw a crow flying towards a bird
on the very top of a pine tree.
As we approached but unable to stop
I recognized the bird to be a hawk.
Our exit came up immediately so D quickly
found a place to park where we still had
a view of the highway through a chain link fence.

This is what I saw...
(notice the little tree in the middle, way
in the distance, it is on the other side of the
highway)




zooming in...

Winter Comfort

With this cold weather, our cats find
comfy spots...

snuggled up with pretend friends...



or napping on the couch near the heater...

What's in the Sky

Yesterday afternoon, I noticed something
very large in the sky gliding over the
Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport.
It was too big for a gull and many other
birds and duck had flown by just before
its' arrival.


Upon closer inspection, we realized
it was an eagle!

Very exciting!

Birds on a Cold Afternoon


Yesterday afternoon while doing errands,
I spotted this gull nestled on top of a chimney.
What a smart thing to do on an especially
cold wintry day in Maine!



D spotted this hawk who landed on a telephone pole
and when I was about to take a photo the hawk flew
to the wire.




How magnificent he looked as the wind ruffled
his feathers!

Couch Makeover

The other night I found myself taking all of the
mismatched sheets that I've
used to cover our 30 year old couch off...
I felt the couch needed another makeover...
what to do....
I remembered I had some large brown sheets
and two of them managed to cover the couch
and with other things I've saved over the
years such as pillows, pillow shams and blankets our
shabby old couch now has a new look.
It's not at all fancy but it gives the room a
very cozy and comfy feeling!
Brody loves it and looks so handsome on it!




Sometimes the simplest things can bring much happiness.
