Tuesday Night Moonrise

As I drove home Tuesday night, coming north from Santa Fe, the moon began to rise above the hills.  It was quite a beautiful sight, and I pulled over to snap a few photos.

Chester, Part 2...

Well... Chester, the handsome orange kitty I introduced in my last post, is really making himself at home here!  I was walking around the kitchen a little while ago, and happened to look up, and discovered Chester snoozing in the cat bed on top of the fridge!!  I still don't know if he is my next door neighbor's cat, or if he might be a stray who actually needs a home.  It occurred to me last night, when he was also in and out of my house, that if he is the neighbor's cat, he might be unhappy at home because of Crazy Simba being there.  I can't imagine Simba being at all pleasant to a new cat in the house!   So maybe Chester is just hanging out here to get a little peace, without having Simba glaring at him...  Whatever the issue is, Chester's not telling me.  Here is on top of the fridge, where he still is as I write this:

Chester Comes Calling

A gorgeous new kitty appeared in my yard yesterday.  He stayed around my house most of the afternoon and evening, and I even spotted him IN my house twice, once helping himself to a snack up on my cats' feeding table!  I don't know who he is, but I suspect he may be the adopted brother of Crazy Simba, my next door neighbor's cat.  I had recently heard they now have an orange & white cat, but I'd never met him.  I have no idea what this cat's name is, but I've begun calling him Chester.  He's a sweetie.  Here are some photos he posed for yesterday:

Spring Is Springing

The photos below speak of spring in northern New Mexico to me.  The first photos show early morning ice crystals on the rear window and front windshield of my car, taken yesterday morning.  Aren't these formations beautiful?  And the last three photos show one of the many robins that seem to have suddenly appeared in great abundance around here, taken this morning... Ah, such charming little creatures!
