Woods Day, big rocks edition

20211107_114920

[ A really, really big boulder is visible through a break in the trees. Above it is that ridiculous blue Colorado sky. ]

First thing I usually do upon finding a new Woods Day spot is take a little wander around, just to see what looks like fun. Y’all know me; a big pile of rocks is DEFINITELY gonna be fun.

Y’all ALSO know that hell YEAH, I climbed that thing. Continue reading Woods Day, big rocks edition

cats: Dramatical Posing edition

20211107_120847

[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, stands on rocky ground, hindlegs splayed as if for balance, glaring at a tree branch directly in front of his nose. ]

So Woods Day happened again this weekend, & I took SO MANY pictures, SO many. But I still don’t know why this branch in particular was so annoying to Loiosh. Continue reading cats: Dramatical Posing edition

cats: pose & roll edition

[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby, is flopped on his back, rolling in the dirt. Both forepaws are tucked in front of him, and all the beans on his hindpaws are showing. His head is tucked to the side, and his belly is vast and pale. ]

There is very little that Tom loves as much as a good roll in the dirt. He’ll dig an entire channel in the ground to roll in, too, because, apparently, of Cat Reasons. Continue reading cats: pose & roll edition

WOODS DAY WOODS DAY

It’s been TOO TOO LONG since I had the time to shove both boys in the car & have a PROPER Woods Day, but last weekend I managed it. & I found an excellent spot for the day, complete with a bunch of big rocks to climb.

[ A rough circle of pale granite boulders surrounds a firepit. The area inside is probably twenty feet across, and the tallest rock looks to be maybe ten feet high. ] Continue reading woods day: little boys & big rocks edition

small beauties: my own back yard edition

This is a really nice place to spend the winter; I’m really enjoying it here. A yard full of Ponderosas, the mountains rising in the distance, & above it all, that deep blue Colorado sky.

Not that I got any pictures of the sky, it was all tiny stuff on the ground.

cats: back yard wander edition

I’ve been carrying a basket of pendulums & other new stuff around for the last three months, not getting around to taking pictures of them so I can get them posted, but I finally got round to it today.

Tom decided to come along and help, but pretty immediately had Opinions about it.

[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby, stands facing the camera, one eye squinted mostly shut. ]

… yes, yes, daystar bright, sorry, product pictures do better with at least some natural light going on.

woods day: smutchy face edition

I finally managed a Woods Day — a short one, in the middle of a road trip, & with only one of the boys, but it was still VERY needed, & Loiosh had a good time.

Why yes, I did take a picture of Loiosh in the midst of a private moment, have you MET me.

[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, is hunkered over a hole in the dirt. His face is squinched up and he looks cranky. Also there’s a bunch of dirt on his face. ] Continue reading woods day: smutchy face edition
