Annabelle's Antics


Every Fall and Winter the sun comes in later in the 
afternoon in a special way into the kitchen.
I photographed Abby many times there.
She especially loved sitting on the kitchen table
looking out the window basking in the warmth
of the seasonal sun.
Annabelle, not as much.
I rarely find her on top of the table, but this month I did.
I like the contrast of shadow and light in this
photograph. I always remember Abby in the 
same spot and it brings back lots of memories.

***

The period of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas
always evoke strong recollections.
It can be a time of melancholy mixed amongst the tidings of joy.
Even though I've lost many humans in my life,
the loss of my beloved Angel 
weighs especially heavy.
Animals give us unconditional love, which is seldom
if not impossible from humans.
So our hearts are even more porous than usual 
when we have lost the one who was so special to us.

***
I miss my Abby, but I am oh so grateful
she graced my life for over 8 years.
I will always remember that.

Lumps of Coal

If the days won't allow us to see each other, memories will, and if my eyes cannot see you, my heart will never forget.



For Sammy always in our hearts.






Miss Boo


Wonders why?


 She has a bag of coal?


Don't worry Boo it's only a prop!

***

Today we are also adding a spot
we would like for Sammy to visit.
As you know today is
COME FLY WITH ME day
in honor of Sammy who loves to travel.

***
This is Anastasia Island pier.
It is the Island off of St Augustine, FL.
This was when we had Hurricane Earl
pay a visit, but he was way off out
in the Atlantic.
It's a beautiful spot Sammy,
and I think you would really enjoy
visiting.

Thankful #TBT


It only seems like yesterday,
when I would find you
lying on the server in the sun.
It's hard to believe it was 11 years ago...

Annabelle's Antics


You can see how low the window sill is.
Just right for kitties!
Annabelle lies just underneath the window
taking a small nap!
I love how the light dapples off of her fur.
