04/19 — under the bridge

it was wednesday • or maybe thursday? • one of those…you know, days • anyway i knew there was weather coming in • i knew the boy’d get cabin fever • also it was gorgeous • so walkies

we stopped at the neighbor’s house first • he’s an awesome guy • got a couple of cats & feeds whoever comes around • he’ll fix your car for not too much money • he’s been teaching me car stuff • & doesn’t flirt with me which is SO NICE

anyway he’s also got a beautiful flower-laden tree in his front yard • i couldn’t get a clear pic because the wind • i almost like this better though? • also the ray of sunlight at the top

flower wind

this is his cat China • she is beautiful & so sweet • i love that meezerXtabby look • the blue eyes & stripey

miss china

she doesn’t like loiosh much • she’s got sort of a resigned patience with him though • it’s like they all eventually figure out that he doesn’t mean it • he’s just a dorkbutt

anyway instead of going down the hill & left • we went down the hill & right • under the bridge • there’s a nice wide rocky beach-ish floodplain there • new territory • i found a lotta seaglass

but that’s later • before that i found a really neat worm-eaten log

runes, ancient paths, switchback roads


electron trails • the path of a single soul through a mob of rush hour commuters

runes maps

meandering stream • deerpath • worm tracks

deer tracks

i love that stuff • i wonder if you can do worm track divination?

anyway it was sunny so loiosh was too warm • admittedly i was too • he hauled me under a tree for shade & snuggles • i decided to try some really-close-up shots with the new phone • which, it turns out, it’s pretty good at

stretchy toes

toes stretched

relaxed toestoes relaxed

his handsome face • green eyes • i love the sunfreckles on his pink nose    handsome face

also of course there was love • many love • LOVE MOM

bestest baby

then i hadda carry his butt back because MOM IT’S HOT • but not before I got a couple more cool pics of the tree • beavers really impress me like • that’s…that’s a BIG tree you’re chomping through there

busy beaver

also a texture-ey-structure-ey pic for rowan because he likes taking this kind of picture • i might get into the habit myself

texture structure

ending as usual with the loot pic • pretty good haul there • more of that steel wire i’ve been using • blue glass is always welcome • decent-sized hunk of bone • red&yellow ochre for a friend • lootlootloot

excellent loot

  2. We need to take The Boy out to Riverside Park sometime. It has many great cat-positile features.

    Hugs Muchly,

  3. The close up shot of Loiosh’s face is exquisite (so is he, of course)! The blooms are lovely and I agree how it came out may be better, cuz it sez movement.

    Miss you all, so fall this way sometime and land for a spell. Happy birfday, neph-mew boy. Can’t believe it’s 8 years already.
