Perspective and deceptive sizes

With Bob and the DOG (AKA Elle) still gone on vacation, the cats have ruled the house. And Charlie is lonely; he misses Elle and Bob. They both spend hours playing with him every day; well at least Elle spends hours playing with Charlie. Bob spends hours trying to keep the two animals from hurting each other as Elle rolls Charlie around on the floor and Charlie bats at Elle’s face. They bait each other and obviously have fun; but it’s scary to watch. As a mom, I can all too easily think of horrible scenarios — charlie getting crushed, elle loosing an eye, cuts, infections, the whole gamut of stuff. And then when charlie makes too much noise, Sophia goes to stop the two of them. She’s got Elle scared of her; and with just cause. Sophia in full attack mode is frightening.

Anyway, back to the cats. They are spending every moment I am at home reminding me they need attention. And if I don’t pay proper attention, they curl up for sleep. Managed to get this photo which has very interesting perspective. Sophia is actually the larger cat although you wouldn’t know it from the picture.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
