No Theme

No theme, apart from small things in the day I liked. The first is Matilda's drawing of her family. I just love the way she has used different colours on her simple figures. It makes a really pleasing picture.
This is more of a big thing. I got over the fence this morning-behind the gate you can see here. Caroline got me her long loppers, and I managed to cut back a lot of the prickly plant to increase our view. When I came back later in the morning to have a look, I found that a huge mud mound had appeared-right in our view line! It is exactly where base camp was.


The last thing is a video of Lily purring. It came out small again-though I have found out why, and changed the settings again. It is the sound I like the most though-such a soothing sound. I don't know how cats produce their purr. I must find out.

Did you know that cats purr also when they are in pain or stressed! Crazy cats! It is a comforting sound- much like Dexter snores...I so love "my baby" the smaller of the circles with equally long legs.

Matilda's picture is really sweet as is your purring kitty.
She purrs as loudly as my kitty, Isabelle!

Matilda's picture is just lovely, and as for Lily's purring, what a great rumble she has.

Hi, Sarah! LOVE the new banner so sweet... and so is the video of Lily! Our Charlie's purr is loud enough to wake the dead...LOL... Matilda's family portrait is lovely, is very moving actually. I admire her use of color, each person unique in color and personality--very smart girl! Happy Weekend :o) ((HUGS))

My most FAVORITE kind of art! Such freedom and joy there. Like Linda Sue noticed, even though everyone in the family is different, they are all equal in tallness.

Sorry about your having to deal with the heaps of dirt. “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.” Picasso. Hope the big machines are creating something useful.

Thanks so much for the happy kitty sounds. I also like the pink toes in your header.

The drawng is super - I love all the different colours! How inconsiderate of the workmen to put that huge mound in your way!!
Have a good weekend x
