Due to persistent, painfully slow computer issues, I am linking up late to Coffee Chat. The computer is still not up to speed, but I am also persistent in trying to keep up with things. Well, I am trying.
This week, over at Time Out for Mom we are asked by Les, our wonderful Coffee Chat hostess, “What is the last thing you took a picture of, and why did you capture this?”
I am always taking pictures, though most are just for my own enjoyment. I try to capture things that mean something to me, even if no one else ever sees them. I love to take pictures of things that seem out of place, or unusual. I can sometimes use these pictures with my writing, such as on my blog.
However, I also like to take pictures of my critters. I have files of these wonderful pictures, and many are very old. I know in my heart that I do this to try to freeze frame the moments that I have with each critter. No matter how long I have with each one it is never long enough. So, I try to capture moments that are meaningful to me, memories that cannot be recreated.
The most recent pictures that I have taken are of Maggie and Chloe Jo. They are in the bay window, each is in their own bed, but still very much together. Even those they are so very different, these two are very close. Maggie loves to nurture, and Chloe Jo loves to be nurtured. These moments are special, at least to us.
