Can You Say Spoiled?

My Wyatt Earp Kitty sits on my desk every morning while I am editing or proofreading or writing copy for my clients. He often sits on the mouse or stands on the keyboard in an attempt to get close enough to the monitor to swat at moving objects on the screen. So ~ he now has his own monitor right next to mine where I play him bird and squirrel videos over and over. So far, he likes the busy scenes and the larger birds like doves. He fell asleep watching the hummingbird feeders. Fish aquariums seem to be pretty captivating as well. I’m getting a lot more work done the last couple of days. 🙂

Takin’ it Easy

Sanibel seashells

Click on the link to solve this jigsaw puzzle!

Another rainy day in Portland but still a pleasant morning. Heading off to church, then to ride my horse. Thought I’d leave you with a jigsaw puzzle to while away the hours. This one is not as easy as it looks, but worth the effort. When I was in Florida a couple of years ago, some dear friends from the St. Petersburg area took my friend and I out to Sanibel Beach. What a delight! Seashells everywhere. Here in this puzzle is the essence of my collection. Enjoy!

A Simple Love

One of the things my mother shared with us kids was a love of jigsaw puzzles. I can remember almost always having a puzzle-in-progress in our house when I was growing up and it’s something I would still do today if I didn’t live on a yacht where surface space was at such a premium. Maybe someday when the restoration work is over, when this place isn’t a constant construction zone, maybe then, I’ll figure out a way to have a puzzle table. For now, I have found the most wonderful Web site, Jigzone, where I may work jigsaw puzzles online. Not only do they have an awesome selection of stock puzzles but you may load your own photos as well. The fun doesn’t stop there either, Jigzone offers 35 different “cuts” for varying puzzle challenges. This is great fun. Be warned though, it is addicting!

Springtime on Sauvie Island

If pictures are worth a thousand words, then please feel free to savor these shots for awhile! They were taken at a couple of my favorite garden spots on Sauvie Island (Oregon). I see them everyday and couldn’t let their essence pass without capturing them on film.
