Very, very rainy.

It’s very rainy today:

There’s been no snow on the ground outside my window, but when the clouds move back a bit, I can see a lot of snow on the mountain peaks. When the weather clears, I’ll take a picture.

I did go for a walk after lunch (with the camera inside my bag, with the case wrapped in a plastic bag…I’m being careful, Dad! I promise!). This shot should be titled ‘in which Heather discovers wildlife, takes a picture using the zoom feature, realizes said wildlife looks annoyed (possibly from having to lie in wet grass..) and walks away hoping that said wildlife won’t run her down, take the room key, break into room and lie down on dry carpet. Or, as I like to call it, ‘be prepared to stop by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin.’

Ah? Ah? Isn’t it clever, framing the shot? If I’d been braver, I would have tried to get the arrow to point right at it. But, um…I’m from the city. We’re mostly comfortable with our wildlife behind plexiglas walls.

Mom and Dad have been painting while I’ve been away. They’ve apparently managed to break a toe and gash a foot (on different limbs), but I hear that my room is looking quite styling. It’ll be like one of those tv shows where you come home to something completely different…just without the videographer.

I’m going to head down to the library, I think, and see what mischief I can get up to (read: will be trying to write and also listening to library’s collection of renaissance era madrigals).
