as i stumbled half asleep still
in to the kitchen
i could swear i was being stared at.
something or someone
i have to be careful
and check the backyard
for our neighborhood
that eats small
before i let the girls out.
i was even thinking it was the
that were staring at me
since they sleep
on a pillow
by the back door.
just as i walked over
to open the door to let the girls
out to potty
of that creepy
being stared at feeling
this little guy was
sitting on the doohickey
of our french door
i figured he would hippity-hop
on his way once i let the girls out
he stayed put.
i headed back to grab my camera
assuming he would be long gone
upon my return
he stayed around all morning
giving me a chance to
do a photo shoot.
poor bertie wanted to come outside and play
the poor little guy was probably hoping
i would invite him in for a
bit since even
in the shade
the heat was beyond
i headed back in
and looked back
him looking in
i felt guilty
he almost seemed to be saying
please let me in
with those little beady eyes of his
hoping the passing storms brought a bit of relief to
the little guy
i am sure he appreciated the moisture.
the first round of storms left as quickly as they came
i love watching storm clouds build.
these are some lockets that sat over night in a vinegar/salt and mulch
mixture. i made the mistake of not wiping the wet mulch off
thinking it would be best to let it dry for a few hours
found out the verdigris came right off as well, oops!
still like how they look, but i stuck them back in
the mulch to build up a bit more patina
think my research is just about done
and i am ready to start writing
as much as i have had fun experimenting and playing
i think i am ready to move on to another tutorial.
until next time
smooches to ya.
