You Shall Not Pass

Oxer in Tunnel

Rion and I got a tunnel for Christmas. We set it up in my friend’s living room, and Rion and Bits were doing very well at first, cheerfully going through the tunnel in both directions. Then they both stopped. I looked inside the tunnel and took this photo of Oxer with my phone.

Christmas Cactus

For years, I have been admiring my friend’s Christmas Cactus, which breaks out in bright red blooms every November. Last Christmas, she gave me a cactus that was full of pink blooms. We both wondered if it would ever bloom again. A couple of weeks ago, I notice buds on the leave. This is what the blooms look like when they have opened.

Friday Morning

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a pleasant Thanksgiving yesterday. Ours was lovely, visiting family in Westminster, Colorado, though the thought that yesterday would have been my mother’s 81st birthday was always at the back of my mind.

On a clear day you can see forever
