Carnage At The Front Door February 20, 2017

img_2405  I opened the front door and found lots of feathers but no carcass – I think (hope) the unfortunate bird got away unscathed.

The villain in the piece is of course Katerina.

p.s.  oops I wrote too soon.  I just looked out the back door.        img_2413  a beautiful bird – alas.   A Finch?

 

Snow Snow Snow February 6, 2017

It’s been snowing all day!  Seattle is closed down.  This makes me think of my childhood in Boston(Belmont).  How we loved to hear the announcement on the radio – no school, all schools, all day – including the following towns…….

Waiting For The Big Match January 29, 2017

Waiting for the big match tonight between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the final of the Australian Open Tennis Championship.  This will be played at a reasonable time in Melbourne but rather late for us on the West Coast of North America.  I stayed up for the William sisters final at midnight last night.  I was disappointed that Venus lost but Serena certainly deserved her win.  Exciting times

_________________________

the next morning – WHAT A MATCH! – it went down to the wire in 5 sets.  My hero emerged victorious.  Spoiler alert – Roger was the worthy winner.  Rafael Nadal didn’t deserve to lose, but he did.  Tightly fought all the way.

I could hardly put down my knitting as the match seesawed back and forth.  I thought that the woman sitting behind Roger’s wife was knitting also but when I got a better look I decided what I thought might be knitting was a set of worry beads.  My current knitting shown on the right below is quite uninteresting compared with the tennis.img_2285

 

 

p.s. Katerina couldn’t bear the excitement and meowed to go out halfway through the 5th set.
