“Eugenia, you’re must get the kids on board,” Simon said, scurrying along the baseboard and squeezed under the sink. “I’m trying, but they’re hungry,” said Eugenia.  She rolled her eyes, but Simon missed it. She’d already turned her head toward her nursing litter and nuzzled her runt toward an empty teat. “We’re never getting out of here, if we don’t take a more systematic approach.” Simon stood on his hind legs and pulled a loose piece of veneer from the corner.  Simone, his first borne, his namesake, clambered onto his back and sank her teeth into a hirer piece of…

Photo Friday: Chicago

Last weekend, I attended Chicago Writes Conference.  My good and gracious friend, Geri loaned me her apartment.  Here’s a couple of photos I took walking to and from the CWC. A private park where employees can take a break.  I took the photo on Saturday morning.  I wonder how many people take their eyes off their keyboard long enough to enjoy this beautiful perk. This is the view as I crossed the street, near Millennium Park.   I love Chicago.  I added a Twitter Sticker, just to show you how my heart danced. Fun! Don’t forget to stop my Pierced…

I love flowers. Especially in my backyard where I can watch them unfurl and unfold changing the landscape right before my eyes.  For the past few weeks, I watched the coneflowers progress. Here’s what I saw.       Wow!  What a change.  I’m not sure which stage I like best.  Perhaps it’s like raising children.  Each stage seems the most beautiful, until the next stage reveals new glories. Whadaya think? What’s in your lens this week?  For more splendid photos, please visit Pierced Wondering by clicking on the box below. She has lots of colorful flowers to look at, but…
