Danger lurks in the outdoors! I love to go out and take pictures. Our cat Fluffy is 17 (!) and I was hoping to capture a few shots of her. While taking a picture of her I backed up and ended up flipping over the chain along our walkway (you can see the shadow). I saved the camera (very important) but have a several bruises and scrapes to show for the event. I'm glad America's Funniest Home Videos wasn't around! And to top it off, I didn't even get a good shot of our cat.
Moral of the story - always be on the alert!
The shot below is the best I could get of the robin pair who have built a nest atop the ladder on our back enclosed porch. This is the second year they have done this. Soon we will have a nest of little ones chirping away. Right now we have the parents scolding the cat when she dares to lay under the nest!
Following is a mandala I created tonight - inspired by Cheryl of Mandala Oasis and Michelle of My Life on the XYZ List. This was my first, but it was meant to be fun and relaxing, which it was.
