This week’s volume is cutting it close, but we managed to get it in before midnight! Tonight we are preparing to make our own cat food so that the cat crew can start their raw diets. They’re not handling the smell of raw chicken and not being able to eat it yet too well.
“What are you doing, human? Why does it smell good?”
“Hand over the chicken and I wont shred your face in your sleep.”
Happy New Year!
I hope everyone’s start to 2016 was a good one. I spent most of the first resting and reading, but we did go out for a couple of hours to survey the flooding in Valley Park. The waters had gone down some, but, as you can see in the photos below, there’s still quite a bit under water.
The rest of my evening was spent snuggling up with this cute kitty below.
There is nothing sad about the death of Mizuki Shigeru. And I say this as someone who shed more than a few tears when I heard the news last night. He lived about as good a life that could possibly be lived; the ripe old age of 93; wealthy in every way that matters; respected by his peers; beloved. He died a good death. The only thing that is sad is that the rest of us now have to live in a world that doesn’t have Mizuki Shigeru. And we are poorer for it.
To say that Mizuki Shigeru was a comic artist is like saying the Brothers Grimm crafted a quaint book of fairy stories or that Walt Disney made some cartoons. Mizuki was one of those rare human beings who unequivocally changed the world with his art. Without Mizuki the world—and especially Japan—would be a very different place…
Last weekend I tagged along with Katie over to Forest Park for another photo assignment she needed to get done. I actually hadn’t really been over there to walk around before, so there’s another place I can mark off my list. It’s lovely there in autumn, though it was super overcast that day. Here’s a few shots that I took.
I had Mamo-chan with me again. I really like how the colours in this one turned out.
The STL Science Center is nearby, so of course I had to get a shot of the T-Rex.
After we left that location, we headed over to The Muny to get a few more shots. We didn’t get to take as many there though because there were too many wedding parties getting photos taken.
I look forward to going back there again! Hopefully next time there will fewer big groups of wedding parties.
Ending this with a Rio since it’s National Cat Day.
Long time no write! Things have actually been pretty busy for me lately, so I’m posting these a bit later than I’d wanted to. Near the end of last month, I went to Tower Grove Park with my roommie so that she could take some photos for her photography class. I took a few as well of course!
Also, I had a little friend with me. I usually keep my ball-jointed doll photography to a separate blog, but I like how these turned out. This is Mamo-chan☆
He’s good at the creepy mischievous expression.
After we were done there we headed over to the City Garden and was greeted with bunny backside.
And his friend
These were next to the bunnies
I promise the middle of the arch isn’t really missing.
I have a lot more, but I don’t want this post to be too image heavy, so I leave you with one of the bunbuns!
Last week, Katie and I flew down to Tampa to visit my family for a few days. Florida was hot and miserable as usual, but we did get to go out to St. Pete beach at sunset, so that made up for it all. My cousin was with us too, so that made the time even more enjoyable!
The sunset over the water was really gorgeous! Katie and I had our nicer cameras with us, so we took a lot of pictures while we were there. I’ve yet to have time to get mine off my camera, but I plan to this weekend.
Yes, that is a Luffy hat.
Being there reminded me of my childhood as we used to go to the beach quite a bit. If there’s any one thing that I miss in Florida that we don’t have here in Missouri, it’s the beach (St Pete, to be exact). Other than that, Florida is pretty dull and way too hot for me, haha.
While seeing my family and being at the beach was nice, I missed my little cuddle buddies and couldn’t wait to get back home to them.
