Yesterdays' adventure

Carved by wind and water, Cumberland Gap forms a major break in the Appalachian Mountain chain.
That's where I was yesterday! Sweetie, doggy and I had a nice little hike in the woods in this area. It was quite beautiful, and I'm looking forward to going back soon to explore some more. There are places to camp, caves to explore, hiking trails, and feel history. It was very refreshing for body and spirit.

This is a slug drawn by my arty-friend VK soaplash in Oregon, after I remarked how sluggish I've been feeling.

My dog is a couch potatoe.

Resistance is futile.
You will be assimilated.

I'm the pretty Borg on the right!

Can you tell I've been enjoying the "Voyager" marathon on the Sci-Fi channel?

These pictures were taken in Las Vegas, at the Hilton's "Borg Invasion" experience. Which was fabulous, by the way, and my reason for going to Vegas in the first place. It was well done, and they had various Star Trek characters wander around the exhibit. Donna told me to go over to the Borg and get my picture taken, my first reaction was: "Are you crazy??? It's a Borg!!!"
The Borg "complied" with picture taking and asked if it was "sufficient." What fun. I don't know if the show is still running, if it is, I highly recommend it, if you like Star Trek. A word of caution: Drinks at Quark's bar are stellar priced.

What I miss

Warm days. Bright sun.
The trees are bare, the evergreens shed their needles. I rake them into a circle around the tree trunks. Neighborhood dogs come and make little nests there, and they lay in the sun and warm themselves.
Winter time. The light is not right here. It looks like spring. My inner universe clock is confused. Where is the grey rain and the cold damp? The crystal rain drops dripping from wet black branches?

A birthday present ...

..for my best friend Sarah, aka Cyd.
I started this little ornament of the Goddess Nathor while still living in Seattle, in the fall of last year. Then it was packed up for the move to Tennessee, and not here in time for Cyd's birthday. Lost for many many weeks amongst many many boxes, it finally resurfaced, and I finished it in time for this years' birthday. Good thing she's my best friend and very forgiving.
I'm slowly recovering from my muses' absence, and creating again.
I find there is other ways of creating, not just in the type of art that I do. Yesterday we spent a blissful day at Sweeties Mom's house, making Christmas goodies. She shared her recipes for Zucchini bread, Pumpkin bread, and my favorite, Peanutbuttercup Cookies. She whipped out eight loaves of bread and 4 dozen cookies in a half a day! That Lady is a true artist in the kitchen, Southern Style, of course.
