STRIPED HAPPINESS ...

SOMETIMES,

I am obsessed ...

At least,

this is WHAT

the boyz at home THINK ...

When I like something,

I really,

REALLY like it ...

And I have a tendency to go

OVERBOARD

with my current passions ...

Right NOW,

I am in LOVE

with my

STRIPED SOCKS ...

I just can

NOT

help it ...

They make me

HAPPY !

TEENY-WEENY TREASURES ...

Today,

I will be

A GOOD girl

and

play with my TOYS quietly ...

I have been collecting

tiny trinkets

for a LONG time now,

filling jars

and

JARS with them ...

16 of THEM ! ! !

The details and colors

of these little objects

CHARM me ...

NOW time has come

to DO something BIG

with them ...

a ONE-of-a-KIND

twisted and funky

ART creation !

MIAOU ! ! !

Despite being a

TWO-TOE-on-a-paw CAT

due to his encounter with a

JAW-TRAP

last fall,

Patte Blanche is still a wonderful

painter's ASSISTANT

when it comes to messing up with COLORS

and

an outstanding art CRITIC

when it comes to choosing

which canvas SHOULD fall on the floor ...

Oh, and we got

The Stray CATS

playing full-blast ...

JUST because ...

MIAOU ;-)

TAKE THE RHINO BY THE HORN ...

This morning,

I woke and decided to take

the BEAST of bad-luck

by the HORN

and MOUNT it

rather than FIGHT it ...

And what a RODEO it was !

Negative has a positive

ALTER-EGO ...

See?

Lost TWO hens to a raccoon but

was given THREE more by a friend ...

My dog Nikita got HURT,

so did my wallet,

but both are OK and

will survive just FINE ...

My friend has decided

to BATTLE his illness

by taking it for a trip

AROUND THE WORLD ...

I sent MISS COPYCAT

a pretty FIERCE letter

though a LAWYER cousin of mine

and MY images are

NO LONGER

appearing on HER site ...

So ...

I am feeling GRRRRREAT !

And I am now the HAPPY owner

of an AWSOME FULLY equiped rhino

that I can RIDE to the village

to go get bread and milk ;-)

BAD, BAD MOON ...

SNOW moon, HUNGER moon,

ICE moon , RACCOON moon,

BLINDING WIND moon ...

I just call it bad,

BAD full moon ...

Last night,

a CREATURE broke into the chicken COOP

and got two of my HENS ...

Just learned that a GOOD friend of mine

has a very AGGRESSIVE type of cancer

and his days are COUNTED ...

My husky dog Nikita took off

and came back with SERIOUS bites on her face

which built up a nice $200 BILL

at the vet ... AND ...

One of my guardian ANGELS

made me aware that

SOMEONE is printing off t-shirts

with MY images

WITHOUT my permission

and even changed my signature !!!

No VOODOO dolls this time,

I am going FULL-METAL jacket

on this ONE ...

Just GET out of my way !

UP AND DOWN ...

MINUS 23 degrees F two days ago ...

57 degrees F NOW ...

I would go for a DIP in the pond

if it weren't for the FOOT OF ICE

on top of it ...

60 degrees F forecasted

TOMORROW ...

Two days of WARM weather in a row,

enough to make us

BELIEVE Spring has arrived ...

MINUS 24 degrees F forecasted

for Saturday NIGHT ...

Mister Winter is such a JOKER ...

and a GOOD yo-yo player ;-)

SNOW ANGELS DO EXIST ...

Here is proof that

SNOW ANGELS exist ...

Spring is TRYING to push winter

to take its PLACE ...

Sunny, SUNNY day

shrinking the WHITE stuff AWAY ...

One of my hens made a MOVE

to escape from Alcatraz this morning

but the thickness of snow

TRAPPED her upon landing ...

Quacking to NO END,

she just stood there,

wings STRETCHED out,

basking in the SUN,

leaving this beautiful,

SOFT and dreamy PATTERN

in the FLUFFY whipped-cream landscape ...

UNUSUAL GOOD-LUCK CHARM ...

AMULET ... talisman ...

good LUCK charm ... JUJU ...

Strange how a

SIMPLE inert object

can carry so much

STRENGTH and POWER

in one's MIND ...

How its beauty REVEALS itself

by isolation ...

Years ago,

as I was coming out of my car

UNDER Jacques-Cartier BRIDGE in Montréal,

this LARGE rusted steel BOLT

detached itself from the structure

and LANDED on the hood,

leaving an inch-deep CRATER imprint ...

I have ALWAYS wondered

what would have been the IMPACT

if this quarter-pound MISSILE had bullseyed

the top of my HEAD instead ...

Once in a while

I STOP right in the middle of what I am doing,

hold this TREASURE

in my closed hand

and SMILE ...
