Mystery Solved!

Finally I have a picture of the culprits who have been eating the cat food! Yes my friends these are the two little thieves who have been feasting on Science Diet every night and I suspect are living under my house! They didn't seem overly surprised when I came out and took their picture, they never missed a beat. When they were finished they sauntered past me and down the stairs in a very offhand and snobbish way as if to say  "the service at this restaurant leaves something to be desired Madam!" Oh well I am sure I wasn't going to be in the next edition of Zagat's anyway!

Butterfly Drama in the Garden

Oh what a day! Have you ever tried to nurse a butterfly, repair a tiny wing?
My cat named Bliss jumped on this little guy and cracked her wing and I spent the better part of today trying to apply tiny bits of coffee filter dipped in white glue to the injury. She seems alright but she won't try to fly yet so I have no idea if it will work or needs more re-enforcing. Of course the problem is to keep it as light as possible so her balance is not thrown off. I think now I have to put her in God's hands and say a few prayers.   

 Poor thing looks like a badly made quilt!
I guess though all we can do is try our best, one thing for sure is without help she was not going to fly again in any event so I am hopeful that she will give it a try soon!

Foggy Morning

Every once in awhile in the midst of the chaos in my life I have these perfectly wonderful moments that God throws in my face to calm me down...:)

 This was one of those mornings, fog everywhere so thick you could cut it with the proverbial knife....bonus!....everything was covered in heavy dew and that caused all the thousands of spider webs to stand out in intense relief. 

Has there ever been a more beautiful lace created than the beautiful delicate work these small creatures produce!
The whole pine tree is covered like a fragile blanket was dropped over the top of it!            

They are always there....just hidden by the glare of the bright morning sun...the dry inability to slow down and observe the glory.

Today I slowed down and even went for the camera. I wanted to remember that while I may sit here complaining about how long it takes me to paint a picture or sew a seam...out there are these amazing little creatures spinning, twining, weaving and without a single complaint they work day and night and expect no reward or compliment, maybe just something for  supper.
