As he was leaving, he called "You should come out with your camera. The frost is forming some beautiful designs on the car windows."
Cute, ain't he ? I taught him well to look for art everywhere !
By the time I finished my little tidying up, got some sweats on and grabbed the camera, the 35 degree warmth and the sun poking out of the white clouds had taken the designs away.
I headed back to the studio and decided to do a little self-portrait shoot - I haven't done that in a while and to capture a little bit of this grey-blue morning....
Had to take a couple more shots around the house...
With a little adjusting, they fit the color scheme perfectly...
and a pair of these little sweeties were picking up the droppings from my bird feeder that has kind of become a squirrel feeder but whatever...
The sun has burned through the clouds already and the ice all over the driveway is melting. The widget says 36 degrees already and I think a high of 39 is on the charts. I can handle that !
Today, I am off to finish up some shopping - only 4 gifts or so left buy.
The tree is up but not decorated. The Cosmo kitty is super curious about it and is batting the bottom branches around but I was glad to note that the tree was still standing this morning when we got up after he had had an entire night alone with it !
Meditation this evening and then tree decorating, I think.
The smell in the house is heavenly - one of my favorite things about the holiday that scent of real tree.
I hope you have a creative Monday with whatever is on your agenda !
Oh, and if you have an extra 4 minutes or so, take the time to listen to this inspired poem that the incredible chicks, Andrea and Jen, at kind over matter posted this morning. If I had a daughter I would encourage her to listen to it over add over again. Since I don't I will listen to it instead and hope that the girl child inside of me hears the message loud and clear.
Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !
