lot of things strike me as cute and cuddly. The normal — baby animals, of all kinds. Who can resist a baby sloth?
My favorite things are soft things. Right now I am cuddled up under a very soft electric throw, wrapped up in super fuzzy soft blankets. I think snowmen are adorable. Monkeys make my heart melt. Foxes are a delight. I went to a huge park in Florida where they let Macaques run free over several acres of land, and the humans would walk through fenced in (on all sides) pathways. The monkeys would rattle little plates on chains, and smack their little hands imperiously on the wood frame work, demanding raisins from the visitors. I will never forget their little fingers touching mine as they accepted my offerings.
My favorite image, when you turn toward romance (for this is the month for it) is of a sweet hearted man in a thick, comfy sweater, pottering around the garden with a cup of tea and a book. That, to me, is a rather idealistic image.
This weekend was good. Mum and I went to a state park for our first walk of the season. Raccoon Creek State Park was very lovely. The weather was in the 60’s, mum and I didn’t need a jacket…we just walked freely.
My favorite part was getting to the waterfall…you could walk into the cave, the mouth surrounded by ice. The lake was also iced over, and it was really rather beautiful. The ice was jade green, though the photos don’t show it.
