Illustration Friday "Layer"

On cold winter nights, Mr. Mouse had to put layer upon layer of quilts on his bed.

We had a tiny taste of Spring here on Thursday and Friday--temps in the fifties, and lots of melting snowbanks. Sadly, it didn't last, as we've been back in the twenties all weekend with ferocious winds shaking the house and knocking branches out of the trees. Still there is a sense of hope as the hours of daylight are lengthening, and the month of March is quickly approaching. We'll still probably get some snowstorms, but the tight grip of Winter is loosening.

  11. It's more of a "dust bunny" cat. I wanted something fluffy but couldn't think of something small enough---maybe a fuzzy caterpillar?
