January 27, 2010

Today I have so many things to be grateful for . . . ice cold sweet tea, a loving family, and SUNLIGHT!

I've been bouncing back and forth between the spare bedroom (aka the junk room) and my retreat, trying to get things sorted and put in the correct locations.  I'm finding that I have quite a task ahead of me.  While I was shuffling from room to room, I noticed a shaft of sunlight . . .

so I immediately dropped everything, grabbed my camera and headed outside for a few shots.

The sun has been pretty elusive recently, and I was so glad to welcome it once again!

I snapped several shots of Butterball, playing on the deck . . .

and I stood still for a few seconds too long.  This little guy climbing my pant leg, seems to think that every time I come outside, he needs to play with the tassel on my jacket.  He's a rather frisky character, but I hope he doesn't continue to be this playful as he gets bigger . . . I might have to get something to protect my legs!

And I hadn't taken a picture of Fuzz Face in quite some time.  She's one of my favorites, and I actually caught her sitting still for a moment.  A rare occurance indeed!

And I couldn't leave you all without a picture or two of my mess in the spare bedroom.  One slight corner cleared out . . .

and three more to go!  Right now . . . I'd love to be able to twitch my nose like Samantha, and have it all done.  I'm really getting tired of all the sorting and putting away, but I know that once it's done, it will stay that way.  So tomorrow I will force myself to move onward.

I fixed salads, deer steak and beef noodles for supper tonight . . . and I filled up on salad and sweet tea.  It is indeed the simple things that make life worthwhile.


  1. 1st shot = awesome
    2nd shot = cute
    3rd = cuter

    The last photo makes me hungry.

    The close-up shot of the golden cat is sublime.
