It was a quiet, peaceful weekend without a trace of snow, and my heart goes out to those further north of me who are buried in up to 40 inches of the white stuff.
I would have liked just a little but I did get to see some when I visited family in NJ on Saturday. They had about 3 inches. And just look at this beautiful little kitty. I took my new flash bounce to practice with.
Her name is Adele.
And she is so affectionate.
George would love this little cat.
Plus, they would match very nicely.

I bundled up and sat outside in the dazzlingly beautiful sunshine today, among the flittering birds. Just listening to their calls and the beat of their wings as they flew overhead was pure bliss, as far as I’m concerned.
These last two are SOOC (Straight Out of Camera) shots.
The cardinal hung out in the bush next to me for more than a half hour before he ventured out in the open to get some sunflower seed. The female with him wouldn’t come out from the protection that the bush afforded.

The most impressive thing I saw on the news tonight was the story about the 7th grade California girl who sent her Hello Kitty doll into space, armed with cameras. She was able to get crystal clear footage of the earth that surprised her. With a little help from her dad, and a high-altitude balloon, the little rocket ship soared nearly 100,000 feet into the sky. Below is a video she made for the project, accompanied by music from Fun. (We Are Young). I expect to see more of this group on the Grammy Awards tonight.
Hope your week is a good one. I’m hoping that mine is, as well.
