Fresh red chili (on a cold snowy day)

Something hot for a cold, very snowy day. The city is pretty much shut down. Lot of snow and more still falling. Giant branches keep crashing down, and there is regular avalanche activity from our roof.

Here's what I woke up to. At least some members of our family (that would be two Golden Retrievers) are enjoying it. Me, I'm just grateful that the heat is working and I have a generous chocolate stash in the house.

Mojito comes in covered with snow pompoms. He seems perplexed to find them stuck all over his body.

I've been neglecting my duties as chair of Lynx's Fan Club. He's spending a lot of quality time lately in his "condo" that The Husband made for him, complete with gadgets and such to play with:

Wow, I can't believe how much snow you got. Love the cat condo!

Thanks for the pics of your adorable animals, Jala. Snow already? That's hard to believe. Your red chilli looks positively sizzling!

Been watching the Colorado weather reports and have to check the dates to make sure it's only October.

But to have Mojito snow pom poms seems worth the avalanche.

Do I love your painting simply because it's chili essence at it's best or because it's also the name of one of my kits.
Yes, my orange cat is Chili Pepper.

Lynx is now into adolescence it seems. More big boy handsome and less kitty cute.
In his bachelor pad.

What a family you have.

Keep warm, keep chocolate. Good edicts to live by.

Hi Kathleen - It hasn't even STOPPED snowing yet and it's been 2 days!

Hi Janelle - Thanks. This is our second snowstorm of the year. It actually used to always snow here starting in Sept., but the last few years has waited 'till Oct. The good thing about the weather here is that in between the snowstorms, there's usually pretty nice weather.

Hi Bonnie - My fur family just KILLS me. Every day, all day. I wouldn't want to live, if I didn't have a fur family. Kisses to Chili Pepper. Lynx is indeed a giant handsome adolescent boy. All the little-kitten aura is gone now. Don't let him hear this, but he's gonna be a BIG FAT CAT.

I love this photo - It looks like a collage/assemblage piece with cat.

Your blog has matured into an elegant gallery - beautiful work, wonderful photography, and interesting point/s of view on life as an artist.

I congratulate you!
