Miss Woodhouse's Musings

…about life, the universe, and everything. Don't panic!

A Different Kind of Streaming

Friday Frame-Up is back again! This picture is from Christmas break, when our family visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky. I’ll write a blog about the visit over the summer, but for now I’m just going to share a photo from the outside landscaping. When you walk out the back doors of the museum to the grounds, there’s this long staircase leading down to the gardens. Running beside the staircase is this little stream that burbles over rocks. Even with how cold it was, the sound of the trickling stream was nice and soothing.

So, without further ado, the photo:

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind….” -John Donne

I’ve been thinking about my little “photo on Friday” tradition, and I’m thinking that instead of calling it Photo Friday (boring!), I’m going to start calling it the Friday Frame-Up. What do you all think?

Anyhow, my picture this week is a little unusual for me- it’s of a cat. Normally I don’t have much of a chance to snap pictures of the dear critters, as I’m fairly allergic. Do you know how hard it is to frame up a shot when you’re sneezing?

I got away with this picture because there was a beautiful pane of glass separating me from the dander. One of our neighbours in the land of no internet has a ton of cats. I used to know them all, but I always like one in particular. Her name was Fancy, and every time I’d go up to visit she’d make her way over to hang out with me. I’m not sure of this little one’s name, but I do know that she’s a daughter of Fancy. Perhaps her mum told her about me?

So, I took this picture looking out the front door while waiting for some friends of ours to come visit over Thanksgiving. I think that she picked up on our anticipation; she sat by the front door for hours looking out at the road. Thankfully, I managed to catch her sneaking a peek at me!

Little Fancy

For those of you LOL cat fans out there, do you have a caption for this photo? If so, leave it in the comments!


Heading Out

Well, the finals are done, presents are wrapped, cards are… oh no, I actually still have cards to send out… nevermind!

Anyway, I’m getting ready to head out to what I fondly call the “land of no Internet”, so I’ll be posting when I can. I’ll archive some posts for the New Year, so don’t lose hope- and keep checking back with me!

Have a Merry Christmas!

This blog will be back to its regularly scheduled posting in the New Year- provided the world doesn’t end or something like that.
