I try not to be too much of a cat lady and generally avoid posting photos of the cats (Izzy and Bella) too often. Izzy insisted on having her mug plastered on the blog today. She said to tell you all hello. Or, if you’re into that sort of thing, feel free to give her a lolcat caption.
It’s a bright, beautiful, blue-sky day here in the Bogs. The lake effect snow machine was turned off earlier than expected and we don’t have quite as much snow as predicted. It’s likely other communities nearby got more than we did. Lake effect snow works that way. Dumping tons of snow in one place and barely any in others.
I spent most of my outdoor time today cross-country skiing around Breezy Acres. When I’d had enough of that, I sat and watched the birds for few minutes. A red-tailed hawk came diving out of the sky and into the meadow, picking up something along the way and taking it back to a tree in the woods. It was too far away for me to attempt to photograph it. Just as well. I probably didn’t need to see the end results.
I’ve been playing with photo editing programs. The little bird above was processed in Picnik to give it, supposedly, a 1960’s feel.
That’s about it from the Bogs today. There’s not much happening. It’s kind of nice, being able to just hang out on a Sunday. I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday, too.
