I took this picture (and several other angles) on Saturday in our side yard
it's a little hard to see, but what inspired the picture taking was the stick she had picked up and had between her front paws -- it looks like a diving rod!
what I did not notice until I opened the picture on my computer screen later is the awesome shadow pattern across the picture
this will be going into my file to turn into another art quilt
meantime, work on sorting, packing and moving stuff continues -- I'm struggling with not having any time to work on art projects as my sewing just now is focused on getting Christmas projects done, and there has not been any extra time to do art between those things -- feeling pretty cranky about that mostly because I can't see the end of it right now
trying to deal with what appears to be the new normal of pain level now that cold weather and storm fronts are rolling through is not doing anything to improve my state of mind either
just trying to soldier on
