Ah, sunshine! There is hope for spring, isn't there? An occasional warm day like this one makes winter's bare world so much easier to bear, doesn't it? The kids bundled up and went outside to pet the big, fat snuggle-cat . They were amazed at how warm her fur felt when they stroked her back. Our "Halloween cat" has a black coat with shorter orange calico peeking out from underneath. Dark, plush fur-- all the better for absorbing the heat of the sun on a bright day.
While the kiddos gave the feline queen of the deck her due admiration, I was drilling a hole in a small piece of slate to make a display stand for this dark ivory glass sculpture, Offerings. Finished with that task, I carried the sculpture outdoors to take a picture or two.
I'm not sure that my picture taking session met with approval from the noisy, nosy couple of crows who've been roosting in the line of trees that follows the railroad tracks. I could hear them chattering and cawing every time I moved to a different spot to try to take the pictures. Hmm, they make me think of the nosy little old ladies who used to listen to our conversations on the telephone party line years ago. Every once in a while, one of them would forget that it wasn't her conversation and jump in with her opinion on the matter of discussion :)
Here's to a fine, sunlit Saturday afternoon in your neck of the woods, too!
