“Cupcake” has arrived…and the World is now a better place

Four weeks ago, my visiting neighborhood cat, “Cookie” (who is the image of Melania Trump), broke into the house, jumped into bed with my Mom as she watched TV, and promptly delivered a baby kitten. One. One exquisite little creature we call “Cupcake”. Cuteness overload.

Separated at Birth?

Doesn’t “Cookie,” bear an uncanny resemblance to Melania Trump?

Both are glamorous and gorgeous!

“Flower Power”

In the middle of a busy town, this tiny fawn sleeps on my back lawn most every night under the constant watch of her protective father. I call her “Flower” and am completely and totally in love.

P.S. – It has been three months since the above post. Flower paid a visit a couple days ago and I noticed tiny antlers sprouting on “her” head. FYI – “Flower” is a guy.

Flower or Betty Grable? …You decide.

Welcome to the World, Hoda!



DSCF0001Welcome to the World, Hoda!
A little opossum with great promise
A little opossum with limitless possibilities
foraging her way through this big old mess
Stay strong, little one
It won't be easy, but will be worth every minute
We need you, Hoda 
Doing your 'possum stuff
Contributing to the cause
Making the World a little bit better
just by being here
Welcome, Hoda!
We need you.

“Haddie Speaks”

Haddie speaks in kisses
Haddie lives in love
Haddie dreams of bubbles
filled with prayers from above

Haddie plays with Starfish
along the Ocean floor
seeing brilliant colors
we’ve never seen before

Haddie jokes with tail-flips
teasing everyone she meets
Dipping headfirst in the water
– splashing for a treat!

Haddie sleeps in stillness
her eyes open wide
A peaceful demeanor
masking fear held deep inside

Haddie cries in secret
her tears we cannot see
A strong little warrior,
she fights for you and me

Haddie works in earnest begging
“Please help save my home!”
’til peace comes to the Ocean
her mission carries on

You Can Paint!

Still life by S. Roesen (L); my rendition (R)

You will most likely amaze yourself when tackling your next project simply by not rushing. We can achieve most anything, and usually quite well, when not placing time restraints on ourselves.

Wanting a turn-of-the-century still life, but not having the means to afford one, I slowly, (very slowly), copied a favorite oil-on-canvas work by artist Severin Roesen from the cover of American Art Review – painting the leaves and petals one-by-one each evening. At the end of six weeks, I was the owner of a beautiful, though not original, painting to enjoy. My first work ever.

Allow yourself time to slow-down and do things in a comfortable time frame. You will be surprised at what you can accomplish!

 

Cupcake Gone Wild!

Presently,  Cupcake is purring like a lawnmower, chewing on my pen, typing on the computer with all four paws,

How’s that for multi-tasking?
