I have been house and pet sitting for some friends this last week so I have had some fresh subjects to take pictures of . . . a bird named Baby, a cat called Emma and Morgan, a chocolate Labrador retriever. Had some excitement Friday morning when I woke up to breaking glass and the security chimes going off indicating that a door or window had been breached. I called 911 and police came and checked it out thoroughly, inside and out. No broken glass anywhere. Oops . . . apparently I had a very vivid dream that got my adrenaline going. Thankfully, they said I did the right thing and didn't make me feel stupid, although I still had to fight feeling that way. Later that same morning I was back at my own place, and the police came to the door wanting to ask about some break-ins the neighbourhood. They were canvassing the area to see if anyone had noticed any suspicious activity. So once again I was giving my name and birth date to the authorities. So happy things were much quieter today.
And now for your viewing pleasure, this week's interpretations . . .
This is Baby . . . his vocabulary includes "Hello Baby", "Pretty, pretty, pretty boy", "naughty, naughty Grandma", "wake up, Kris" and "Happy, happy birthday". He also does a mean "wolf whistle" and loves to whistle the song "What if God Where One of Us".
2. Made Me Smile
My daughter came home with two bleeding heart perennials this week. She remembered that we had them in Willow River when she was little and was so excited to grow them herself.
I have a small collection of antique books that include these Bibles and hymnals.
I was thinking the little waterfall into the fish pond would work for the splash prompt. When I was setting up my shot Morgan suddenly appeared in the picture. I was sure hoping he didn't fall in . . . I didn't want to deal with a soaking wet dog.
5. In the Sun
I love the way these tiny leaves on the spirea bush look when back-lit by the sun. I think the clusters of white and red tulips blurred in the background really add to the beauty of this shot.
Looking forward to seeing this week's entries . . . a favourite part of my week. You can check them out yourself at Ashley Sisk's Ramblings & Photos.
