Enter: Three WITCHES

When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning, or in rain? Guess the kids have been getting into my literature textbooks again. I thought my Riverside Shakespeare was too heavy for them, but there is no getting in the way of a determined reader. Now that they’ve mastered Act

Happy Meow-loween From My Mewsette!

This card, “Madame Mewsette Will Tell Your For-tuna” features Miss Mewsette, who has a strong sense of the dramatic and arranged herself in this living still life, then looked at me as I walked through the room at night, probably preparing dinner. Where’s my camera?! And my tripod for this

Daily Sketch: Bella Birdwatching

Bella didn’t hold still quite long enough to get this much detail as she watched the birds at the feeder at the big north window, but she does give me plenty of opportunities to study her and gather information and details so I can choose the best posture!

Daily Photo: Suddenly Very Silent

Setting up for the day in my studio I realized, after listening to Smokie and Bella tear around the house after I’d opened the door to the bathroom, that it was quite silent again, and I was quite alone. Where could all the cats have gone already? They’d only been
