grama gigi is coming

I’m off on my trip to see my daughter’s family for 2 weeks. Kaylie is getting so big and is now a big sister. I’m looking forward to painting with her.

Kaylie with her new brother Noah. Now wait a minute. Is she regressing instead of playing the role of big sister. No it’s just love. Everybody shares.

Lihua is a Chinese name and means beautiful and elegant. Siamese cats are that and when they open their mouths to meow…..makes you wonder how ever was that voice given to such an elegant creature. But, to those who love their kitty….even a voice which sounds as though its owner has been smoking 2 packs a day for 4o years….well…..it brings up love and joy.

Spirit white buffalo…the Mother of Life….brought us the sacred bundle and the pipe to help teach us peace and understanding. This according to Lakota legend was passed down by word of mouth to each succeeding generation.

Helios is the Titan god of the sun. Lofty namesake for this pooch. Helios was the guardian of oaths and drove around in his chariot day and night. Our dog here doesn’t look as though he has that kind of drive. Maybe the name was given to him to inspire some activity. But, he is oh so friendly. Who cares about his accomplishments.

A sweet spring day….plants blooming, grass growing, sun shining. It’s a magic garden where kitty doses and dreams of fantasy places. Do you suppose she is in the mouse kingdom?

A seemingly dreamy mood. Who know what cats are thinking. I imagined that this kitty is pensively watching the universe with all its stars. Who knows.

Is she considering her next mousie adventure? It may be more difficult to catch mousies when you are a large white cat. Blending into the foliage would be nearly impossible. At least she is not wearing a bell.

These majestic big bears of the arctic are endangered because global warming is threatening their hunting territory. They are starving to death.  ‘Atkonartok’…guardian spirit…. is napping on an ice flow.

a rose

Horace is smugly smelling a rose to conceal his furtive drooling looks at a robin in the birdbath. One of my cats fell off a fence upon which he was walking. He never batted an eye lash. He just collected himself and continued walking on the ground as though nothing had happened. Personally, I think that his mind was elsewhere….really focusing on prey like Horace instead of his footsteps.

Charlie is wearing a bell. Do you suppose that he is strictly an inside cat? Because I would not dare to put a bell on my cat who comes and goes as he pleases. He would certainly alert the coyotes and possibly become their first course for dinner.
