Black & White Wednesday :: The New Place

I'm not moving until next month, but I took a drive over to the new place last weekend to take some pictures. The grounds looked so pretty with the morning light streaming through the trees.

My most important belongings are packed and ready to go.

Black & White Wednesday :: Hands Knitting

"Knitting is clothing made in spare moments, or round the fire, whenever women gathered together...
It's something to celebrate, clothes made in love and service, something women have always done."
- Anne Bartlett,
Knitting: A Novel

Thanks to Linda at Natural Suburbia for Black & White Wednesday.

Black & White Wednesday :: Apollo

Phew, I got in just under the wire for Black & White Wednesday ... it's 11:45 pm.

Since Charlie was the subject last week, to be fair I am featuring Apollo this week. He is a sweet, well-behaved cat, and awfully skittish. Lately I've been letting him go outside for a few minutes each night, and it was a joy to watch him roll around on the grass for the first time.

On Friday I am off to Grass Valley to visit with Dogwood. See you when I get back!

Black & White Wednesday :: Charlie

This week I am participating in Linda's Black & White Wednesday with photos of one of my favorite subjects, Charlie. I have to admit, I cheated a little by doctoring color photographs in Picnik to make them black and white.

I wish I could show you a picture of how Charlie looked when I first found him as a tiny five week old kitten so that you could see the contrast. He was skeletal and had a swollen, infected eye. I doubt he would have lived through another day if someone hadn't rescued him. (If you would like to read the story of how Charlie came in to my life, it is here.)

It is amazing when I look at him now, so big and healthy and gorgeous. I found him during a particularly difficult time in my life, so I like to say that I rescued him and he rescued me right back. He is a chatty, playful, loving, and mischievous companion, and I adore him.
