  3. I thought this week it would be fun to share some of my favorite, candid Instagram shots!  These pics are not fancy, are often filtered, and range from what I would like to call artistic to downright silly.  I love my Instagram account and I use it solely as a way to share random moments throughout my daily routine.  I use my iPad Air 5MP camera and the editing software that came with it, Instagram and its editing software, and a photo editing app called “Aviary.”  I have fun and go a little nuts at times, but I love it.  I hope you enjoy this break from my normally unfiltered/unedited photo posts.  

    XOXO

  4. Flannel

    Soft, warm, worn flannel
    rubs gently against our cheeks,
    as we lay face to face, eye to eye.
    Round pupils staring into elliptical pupils,
    blue-green hazel studying sea-foam green,
    an interspecies connection.
    I kiss your salmon and black nose,
    pressing my pursed lips delicately against you.
    Nudging your fuzzy head upward,
    you purr loudly in affectionate response.
    How can I love you so completely?
    Fluffy, calm, trusting,
    your acceptance and want for me always shocks,
    always pleases my inner narcissist.
    These simple moments in our bed
    guarantee my passionate devotion.

  8. Nuzzle

    Nose prints
    on the glass table, white walls, clear windows.
    You leave your mark so well.
    I’ve leisurely read,
    heard mentioned on streaming, true crime episodes,
    that these smudgy deposits are unique,
    like my own greasy fingerprints.
    I run the ridged tip of my index finger
    across your perpetually dewy snout,
    feeling the tiny, nearly invisible bumps found there.
    The salmon-hued flesh
    one of the few places your mostly fur-covered skin is visible.
    You push your fuzzy face into my stroking digit,
    angling for a greater tactile experience.
    I unfurl my fist, surrendering.
    You nuzzle my relaxed, open palm,
    your forensic identity left behind.
    Feeling the rumbling of your purring, silky throat against my hand,
    I smile.

  9. The Kittens Are 9 Years Old Today!

    Nine years ago today, I found four, feral kittens in the bamboo patch in my yard.  We bottle fed them every four hours for weeks.  After trying for over a month to find them homes, my hubby and I realized that they were already home.  They have been a wonderful part of our lives ever since.  When we found them, we were going thru one of the roughest periods of our lives.  I feel that these kittens were a gift to us, a way for us to refocus our minds and spirits on something new and positive, as we made our way thru the pain we were going thru.  In essence, we saved each other.  Happy Birthday to my babies, Meeko, Oats, Piggy, & Gus!

    Today I am going to share a photo montage of their kitten-hood!  Please note that these pictures are really poor quality due to their age and the low quality of my camera at the time.

    The four of them playing in a pile, all nice and fuzzy after a bath!

    All tired out from playing!

    Freshly bathed beauties!

    Getting bigger!!

    Gus

    Meeko

    Piggy

    Oats

    Getting so grown up!

    Today! (photo via my iPad, so it is a tad better LOL)

    I hope you enjoyed this stroll down memory lane with me!  Have you ever raised a litter of kittens by hand like me?  Leave your stories in the comment section below!
