My daughter has a coffee table made up of metal and stone-like tiles. The textures were interesting.

Those eyes made me feel guilty for staring at him through the glass.

That’s really her name. At rest she’s sweet and innocent. But when she’s awake……oooooh my. She rules the household with a velvet claw.

I can’t seem to get away from my theme of pictures taken from my car window. Maybe that’s because I seem to spend most of my time in the car.

2007 has been pretty rough so far. Don’t want to go into all that. Beauty like this soothes the soul.

bright snow

The old man was out plowing the driveway with the lawn tractor and took several long turns around the trees. A bright sunny day. But cold. Must be all of 20 degrees F.

frozen chimes

Originally uploaded by lilybdcsa.

A sunny day, but it was cold, cold, cold. These windchimes became encased in ice. My parents had these hung outside their window so that birds won’t fly into the window. They do occasionally and quite often the impact kills them, but the wind chimes help.

let it snow….




snow day

…And it did. Nearly all day long. Not sure of the amount, but it was enough. Just the perfect time for our furnace to give out, eh? We were awakened at 2 a.m. by our smoke alarm going off because the furnace motor was burning up. A chilly night was had by all. The cats ended up on top of me like furry little hot water bottles.
