Oh well …

Oh well ...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Oops!

Usually I like to keep my photographic disasters to myself. However, since today’s challenge calls for us to lay bare our creative vulnerability, I decided to step out from behind the veil of perfection I tend to hide behind and own the errors of my ways.

On this occasion I thought I was being so clever. JJ was asleep on top of his little tree, his reflection in the sunny window. “Oooh! I really must capture that,” I thought to myself with glee. And I did … that and all the dirt and cobwebs on the window, too! That’s when I realized what a lousy housekeeper I am. (I’d far rather be creating.)

And the image is over-exposed.

Oh well, my intention was good.

“K” is for “Kitten”

Monochrome Madness 2-17

~*~

Resting

The theme for Monochrome Madness this week is the letter “K.”

 JJ rests his chin on his brother Indy’s side as they both have an afternoon snooze. They were about nine months old at the time and the sweetest, most rambunctious pair of kitty cats.

They still are.

I’m not the only one in our home who loves tulips.

JJ thinks they make a tasty snack.

Fur and Fun

Monochrome Madness Week 52

~*~

Indy

~*~

Indiana, my other rescue kitty and brother to Jasper, has grown into a lumbering 17 lb bundle of fur and fun.

We share a special connection because he actually picked me.

One of four tiny, abandoned kittens rescued by a local horsewoman from a cardboard box left on the side of a busy road, this little guy kissed my hand with his tiny sandpaper tongue as I held him for the first time.

And that was it. I was smitten; he was coming home. And since I wanted two kitties of the same gender his little brother came with him.

I wonder, sometimes, about their two sisters. If nothing else, they became two well-fed and busy barn cats.

The Two Wise Guys

 

Wise Guys

 

~*~

As much as I adore my boys JJ and Indy … (and I do) … and as much as I would love to have their company by the Christmas tree … (and I would) … the safest thing for the tree, the boys and my sanity is to have them marvel at it from afar.

May the peace, joy and sanctity of this beautiful season bless you and yours, and carry us all with open heart into a happy and prosperous new year.
