It's a wet, wet, wet, wet world ...

with wild windy weather!!!
Make Time for Small Reflections

Ms Kitty will not
come inside unless I leave
the door open ... so

she's been hiding out
in the bushes ... checking in
when the rainfall breaks

You can see I've moved
the blue chairs to an alcove ...
due to heavy winds

Molly and I go outside
just to stretch our legs

and take photographs
sharing just a few today ...
wet & windy world

Thanks to all for your concern. I'm fine but it's still raining. I've just returned from an 8am appointment dealing with Medicare Supplemental Plan F issues and am leaving soon to drive to the local Social Security office because the promised 'secure envelope' still hasn't shown up. I'm hoping they'll 'scan' the necessary verification paperwork into my file as a 'walk-in' today (at the suggestion of the last person I spoke to on the phone yesterday afternoon). Keep your fingers crossed for me driving over there & back ... and getting someone to help me follow through today.

You do have gray moody skies lately! But they do make for great shots and what a way to appreciate your usual blue, blue skies! Have a great weekend!


XoXo said...

What a beautiful set of reflections here my friend, the cat looks like it's amazed with his image on the glass.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Lots of great shots and various fun things to look at! Reflections are great! Even in the patio door, reflections seem part from inside and part from outside. I am still so loving the blue chairs! Are they wood or plastic?

Carolyn Ford said...

Soggy sidewalks create great mirrors! I love that palm reflection!

Suburban Girl said...

I like those reflections on the sidewalks. Poor wet kitty.

Cheryl Ann said...

I tried to get my outdoor cats to come in and they REFUSED! Two of them prefer to sleep out in the garage and one is curled up in a box next to the front door! I like how you found interesting subjects in everyday things!

Wonderful photos, storyteller! Especially the reflection photos! I have a WR photo post up... :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Those are great; once again I feel that I have shared your day. Stay dry!

You've outdone yourself with all these fine images. Great series and commentary.

Darcel said...

I love all of those pictures! So sweet.

Diane AZ said...

I see Ms Kitty knows how to get your attention by pawing at the door. Our 18 yr old cat just learned how to do that. Ms Kitty looks so lovely in those pictures with the raindrops on the glass. I also adore the palm trees in puddles, so many great pics!

Mary said...

I love all the rainy day shots. We are too cold here to have rain, but it's nice to see your photos.

Good luck with getting all the red tape completed.


Martha said...

The weather may be gloomy, but you have shared such lovely photos. I love Miss Kitty, especially the shot of the door with her peering in!

Stay safe and dry!

Mike Golch said...

Great photos.Thank you for sharing them.

Jeanne said...

That silly kitty! We used to have a girl like that. She was an abandoned cat when we adopted her and used to being outside. Took a long while to get her used to being in a nice warm, dry house. Love those reflection shots too! Enjoy your weekend!

Kat said...

These are really great shots of some not so great weather. Love the kitty pawing at the glass. And the palm reflections are always a favorite of mine. Fun series. Kathy

Hootin' Anni said...

Poor fur-family!! They need to come in out of the rains! I've been wondering about you with all the CA rains and mudslides!

My C C is posted below my Photo Hunt Photo. Come see if you have time in your busy day! Happy weekend.

Beautiful post, I liked a lot the little black critter and the poem, fabulous composition!
I hope the weather is better today!

ramblingwoods said...

I am sorry about all the bad weather. Please be careful....Michelle

quilly said...

You found a lot of beauty to admire even in the wet and rain. I'd tell you which photo was my favorite, but I couldn't pick one.

Tara said...

I love black cats, yours have a magnificent eyes.

Karen said...

Stubborn Ms. Kitty...fantastic photos!!

George said...

Ms. Kitty looks as if she's ready for the rain to end. I like the sidewalk reflections you've captured.

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

Nice shots, I hope Ms Kitty made it inside to dry off.

Anonymous said...

What great shots! I just love Ms Kitty!

Janie said...

Ms. Kitty doesn't seem to mind the rain, and I'll bet Molly likes to splash in the puddles.
Beautiful reflection shots.

Carletta said...

Oh my gosh - such wonderful shots!
Ms. Kitty needs to get inside. :)
I LOVE the two shots of the reflected palms; especially the first one - lovely!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Love all these photos you've shared, those reflections are amazing and your little black cat? So adorable looking through the window and love that cute dog also. Hope you got everything taken care of and that all goes well.

I really like that picture of the cat looking in the window! And that last reflection is just lovely!

Joy Des Jardins said...

These photos are great Virginia. I especially like the ones of a rained-on Miss Kitty and the reflection of the palm trees...lovely. Nice haiku. Happy Sunday to you my friend...Hugs, Joy

James said...

I enjoyed all of your pictures. Just think we could have passed each other last week. I bet you're glad that I took the rain with me when I left. :)

Carly said...

I love your photos today. Cute cat. We have a black cat that hangs around here, but I have difficulty getting a good exposure due to the contrast. Yours are great. We had a bit of rain today here and my husband felt bad about the cats being outside.

Is that Lady's Mantle? I love Lady's Mantle.

Best wishes with your trek to the government.
