Here Kitty, Kitty....

This is our 17 year old cat Einstein, we call her "Steiner".
We thought she was a boy kitty, until the vet told us otherwise. LOL, hence the nickname.

I am really happy how these photos turned out, showing her beautiful blue eyes.
And also excited how good these are, without any editing done to them at all.
Still trying to figure out my camera, so everytime I use it it's an experiment.

Winter visitor...

Seems like we have a bird sanctuary in out backyard this winter.
We have 2 birdfeeders (a suet cake and thistle feeder) that bring in numerous species of birdlife.
We have at least a dozen different species of birds, making appearences everyday.

The photo above is one of our favorite visitors, the Male Townsend's Warbler (Dendroica townsendi). The yellow of their markings is so beautiful in this dreary Oregon winter weather.
{Townsend's Warblers are medium-sized wood-warblers, measuring about 5 inches in length. Adult males are strikingly patterned, with broad yellow eyebrow and mustache stripes, set off against a black crown, ear patch, and throat. Short arcs along the bottom of each eye are also bright yellow. Lower breast is yellow, belly is white, with black stripes along the sides and flanks. The male's back is olive-green. Each wing has two white bars. Tail has white outer feathers, which may be conspicuous in flight. Females and immature males resemble adult males, but are duller overall, with olive-green markings on the head and face, instead of black, and yellow throat with variable amounts of black.}

My first digital page!

I downloaded this free Wild Sorbet Digital Kit at Memory Makers Along with their cool kit and clip art from my computer, I created this LO.
It was fun, but I definitely missed the physicality of creating a "normal" scrapbook page.

My next adventure will be a "hybrid", using both regular and digital elements to create a layout.
