I love sunny mornings.
Here in Southern California, we usually have an abundance of sunshine. This winter, however, has been colder than usual with plenty of gray days and rain.
This morning we awoke to the sunshine pouring through the windows. The skies are clear and it finally feels like spring.
Kona and I ventured to the local school and he spent the entire morning sniffing pretty much every blade of grass. We came across two little friends peeking into the school yard.
Feeling happy to share a little sunshine and gratitude from our corner of the world.
We made it through Thanksgiving, Black Friday and have landed on Cyber-Monday. These are all national holidays, right?
Yes, please, I’ll have that bacon treat!
I celebrated Black Friday by taking advantage of an instant rebate offered by Nikon and got myself a new camera and a wide-angle lens. I’m excited about my new gear, and you will all be seeing more pictures of Kona’s handsome face as well as his feline brothers as well.
Let’s BUNGLE in the JUNGLE! I’m a tiger Hear me RAWR!
This wide-angle lens, a Nikon 16-35mm, allows me to see the bigger picture. An ordinary portrait becomes more of a story, like an environmental portrait, allowing for more creativity.
You know I’m your favorite cat, right?
I’m finishing up my Fall semester and am REALLY looking forward to some time off to play with my new equipment and start getting more posts (and pictures) up on the blog.
Hope you all had a great holiday week, and a very happy Monday to everyone!

Saturday morning is made for window-shopping at Pacific City.
Though not all the stores are open yet, there are some really great restaurants and a wide variety of shops.
One of my favorite stores.
Kona’s favorite store. Well, not the bath part of it.
This place smells great! Let’s go in! Hey, who’s that looking at me? She’s kinda cute…
Just a little lick. They’ll never know.
Which way is the beach? Are we going swimming now?
The view from the restaurants isn’t too shabby.
There’s plenty of outdoor seating available, and a few glass-fire pits for chillier evenings.
Okay, okay I’ll look at the camera. Sheesh!
Most of the stores were still closed so we got to peer in and snap lots of pics without disturbing anybody.
Have a superb Saturday, friends!
