Caturday Art ~ Charcoal Bogey

Happy Caturday!
With the help of Adobe Elements
I created this charcoal sketch of  Bogey.
I started with the snap shot below.
He looks like such a cool cat, but 
we ALL know he is a nervous wreck
with a huge cattitude.
Thankfully he has a loving home...
We love Bogey unconditionally!

Orange You Glad It's Friday ~ Oranges!

Last May, on a whim, I purchased an orange tree.
Oranges, being one of my favorite fruits,
seemed like a fun thing to try growing
and a little nuts if you live in Oklahoma, like we do.
Our tree produced flowers right away.
Surprisingly, fruit followed even though I have "brown" thumbs.
Bringing the tree indoors before the first frost wasn't a problem.
Now it's late February, and the fruit are still turning orange
but have yet to be sweet.
I decided to harvest the fruit and give this lovely tree a rest.
I found some orange tree fertilizer and
gave it a dowse, hoping this will help sweeten the next crop!

Black & White Wednesday ~ Sneet and Icicles

The weatherman finally guessed right...
sneet fell upon us the other night and 
we got a few icicles too.
Chicken tortilla soup simmering in the slow cooker
was my reward for shoveling the driveway that afternoon.
I love a plan!

Black and white just seems the way to go

Macro ~ Black and White Flowers

"Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?"
- Kathleen Kelly, You've Got Mail
Yes, I do, though daisies aren't my favorite flower, they do make me happy.
Flowers are like a good hug, they always warm my heart!

Orange You Glad It's Friday ~ Lake Leaf

For joy, the pending ice storm is fizzling out!
I don't regret purchasing that snow blower three years ago, at all.
In fact, that snow blower is still in it's box
and there it shall stay. 
Superstitious? No. Maybe.
Why mess with what is working for us?
