Lake Morning

The sunlight on the lake earlier this morning. Me and the little heron on the dock thought it was dazzling.

They Never Stop Playing with Legos

Looking at this construction site, I just realized that.

Crystal Rose

Skye vs. the Quilt

Mornings on the porch have grown much cooler, and Skye has grown a little too big to share my chair now, so I put out a little quilt for her to sit on:

At first she didn't know what to make of it (we keep a little towel in the crate where she sleeps; all other quilts in the house are strictly paws-off.) Then she decided it was a new toy:

She scratched at it, rolled in it and had a fine time. I didn't take it away until she started trying to chew a hole through it:

Mustn't encourage that kind of habit.

Fountain outside a hospital where I was visiting a sick friend. Evidently the water is dyed red to make it look prettier, but combined with the fountain's abstract shapes it reminded me of blood pouring from a bunch of halberds.

I need to get out a little more, I think.

Why She's Here

This is the look that broke my heart, haunted me for days, and ultimately earned Miss Skye a home with us. Sometimes all it takes is one look.
