Snail Watching is About My Speed

I can get lost looking through a magnifying glass at the Ramshorn Snails & Tadpole Snails.
It's so peaceful...even more so than bird watching or even watching fish.

Cherry Wood & Pine Cones

And so this is winter.
The electricity went out on a few streets in our neighborhood for about 8 hours, and the furnace went off too, because of the electric starter.
Snow started falling early in the morning, and by afternoon the ground was white.
The house eventually started getting cold and so we built a very hot fire with cherry wood and for fun some pine cones.

Windowsill

A happy little spot on a windowsill that gets a nice bit of sun and feels like spring or summer even in the winter.

Oakland O' Oakland...
SimpleSue-my Illustration of Catlady

Every day I cycle for 40 minutes on 5th Avenue.
Speeding towards the Cathedral of Learning and never reaching it.
I close my eyes because the traffic doesn't matter when it's four stories below me.
Ten minute brisk walk, lift 20lbs 24 times.
Today the view was cold and gray until the tangerine sun made a last minute appearance.
The tips of the spires of St. Paul's Cathedral glowed like white-hot-and-orange metal pokers.
And this is my daily routine.
Each day I cycle faster and farther, sweating and going no where.

The Pittsburgh Athletic Association is like Pittsburgh's Grand Budapest Hotel...
A little faded yet still a grand old place at 107 years old.

A little stork or crane candlestick...I think I'll use it to hold a round cut glass chandelier prism to catch the rainbows.
