February IWSG

Happy February! How bizarre is the weather where you are? Last week it was subzero temps that had us lower in degrees than Antartica (yes, really), yesterday it was a record high that let me jog in shorts, and tomorrow? Ice storm. Alrighty then. So, if the weather's got your head spinning, how's the writing going? Feel free to dish.

Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for awesome ninja skills on this wonderful writer's platform along with his merry band of co-hosts: Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace!

February 6 question - Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?

1. Procrastination

I can find thirty different ways to avoid unpleasant tasks in a heartbeat. Don't want to make a phone call? Sorry, time to clean the litter box. (Hmm, that seems a little backwards, but I'm an odd bird.) Need a reason to avoid the writing desk? Oh, I've got a million of those, including fatigue, shopping, kids wanting to come home sick, fighting cats that need separating, housework, and scavenger hunts for lost items.

2. Clutter arranging/hiding

It's horrifying amazing the amount of crap dearly beloved keepsakes I can cram into the storage areas of this house. Send Maria Kondo, stat!

3. Wildlife Photography

Here's our neighborhood friend, Foxy, a beautiful red critter that's been visiting for a several weeks now. He (or she) is gorgeous.

Noche and a harbor seal, holding paws. Awww. Who says stuffed animals are just for kids?

Have you ever seen a kid whose adult teeth come in behind their baby teeth, sort of like a shark? Well, guess what? It can happen to kittens, too. Here's a shot of Noche with double upper fangs. I hope it's not hurting the little guy. It's the same on the other side of his mouth as well. I wonder which is the baby tooth and which is the adult?

Our girl, Dove, impersonating a harp seal. She is the only cat I've ever met that actually allows belly rubs. I can even brush her tummy and she loves it!

Can't leave out the fish friends. I can spot three here: two orange and one white.


Do you take pet pictures or other wildlife? How crazy is the weather in your town?
