Happy St. Patrick's Day! Oh, when we were younger Mr. Sidewalk Shoes and I enjoyed many a St. Patrick's Day. Green beer. Pub hops. Silly hats. Now, however, you'll most likely find us like Luxie kitty above. No, not taking a nap among the orchids, but definitely taking it easy.
I've reached the stage in life where I don't want to go out on the big days. You know.. Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, etc. So many people, so much traffic, so many impaired drivers. I know I sound like an old fuddy duddy, and I'm not (other than I used the term fuddy duddy - which I don't think is even used anymore.) It's just that I'm more than happy to stay in on those days and go out on regular days.
As it always happens, a poor sweet kitty, silently napping is disturbed once again by a camera click. Luxie wants to know what does it take for a kitty cat to get some undisturbed napping around this house. On another note, she does think that she looks quite lovely among my orchids! This is only the third time the little one in front of her has bloomed. I was about to give up on it blooming again!
For my artsy photo, I used the topaz labs Simplify plugin.
