Winter Walk

David and I took a walk around Lake Harriet today. The sun and blue sky had to be enjoyed outdoors!  

The Bread and Pickle refectory is closed for the winter - D got a pic of the sign.

The bandshell that will be in use again before we know it.

The photo below is "find the hidden sparrows".  The were loud but camouflaged...

...until I got out of the car to take their photo. Then we noticed how FAT they were.  Guess it's been a good winter for foraging.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone!  Hope you got to celebrate it in the style of your choice.  I got up this morning and shoveled some new snowfall.  Then saw the movie "Safe Haven", which was quite good, and ate a Godiva dark chocolate/raspberry bar.  I sent my Valentine's out on time this year.

They were a variation of this 3x3" card that I had made for a challenge (and forgot to submit).  I didn't have enough of the charms or the metal embellishments, so the version I sent was with just the jeweled brad and a heart punched out of metallic cardstock.  The round shape is an Inkadinkaclings stamp.  And I used a corner punch on the purple layer.

13 Ghost Cats

For fans of the movie, "Thirteen Ghosts", here's a special effects shot of Jazz, the stunt cat. 

She found a comfortable spot on top of a stack of magazines ready to be recycled.  I was able to take one good photo of her.

Then the head tremors began again.
