Princess has a boyfriend *gasp* and a few announcements

Big news first! Princess has gone into heat for the first time, and she’s already got the attention of a big tom cat.  I got up this morning (first one up) went down stairs to the kitchen, looked out the window, and what do I see? A big honkin’ black and white cat lay two feet away from my kitty, who is rolling about in the dirt.

My first thought is, “That’s not our cat!” Second thought was, “Holy smoke, that’s a tom cat!” Third thought was, “Princess, you’re being a big flirt!” Between then and breakfast, I saw them ‘doing the do’ three times. In public. Not my first time seeing that though. Last time I saw cats ‘doing the do’ was about five years ago and we were all eating sandwiches for lunch and were watching from the window. ANYWAY, we’re all excited as we’re pretty positive Princess will get pregnant! If she does, we’ll be expecting kittens within June! AHHHH! I’M SO HAPPY!

Also, we named the tom (who keeps running away when we come outside). Since Princess is really Princess Leia, Kayla and I decided it was fitting to name him Han Solo–Solo for short.  Ha. Ha. The two have been hanging out together all day. He kinda chases her about the yard and she is quite the flirt. She took time out to cuddle on my shoulder and I asked her all about the new boyfriend, whom she really likes.

I’m rather jealous though. My baby cat who isn’t even a year old already has a guy. It’s… just so not fair. 😛

Okay, now that I’m done ranting about my crazy day, I have one announcement.

I know I’ve missed a lot of days but I do intend to keep going with this! I’m not a quiter. However, I’m going to start photography more than Princess, for two reasons. One, she hides more and I don’t see her that much during the day. And two because it’s getting too freaking hot outside to stay out long to take pictures. So, I’ll be photographing more things than Princess for a while now. You’ll probably see the blog title change to fit. 😀

Anyway, that’s it for now! MTFBWY!

My Head is Spinning

Today was busy and I’m so glad I remembered to take a picture this evening! Whew, close call! My head has been filled with other things, like catching up with emails, working through blog post ideas, sorting through two different short story ideas, still trying to grasp the plot of the mystery movie of tonight and trying to decide which Sherlock Holmes story to read next. Which, by the way, I finished The Sign of the Four (which I was able to read because Dylan was nice enough to lend me his book) and it was amazing. I’ve always wondered how Watson met his wife. If you’ve always wondered, read that one! It’s quite enlightening!

Oh. And a new Avengers trailer is out. I’m so terribly excited from all the new footage! No wonder my head is spinning. I shall scream in the theaters, I just know it.

Team Mates

I’m doing this challenge with three other very epic people, whom I’d like to introduce. 🙂

There’s Savanna, our ‘Ringleader’. She’s the one that got us started on this thing. She loves Star Wars, photography and big fuzzy pandas!  Her main blog, Pandas, Lightsabers and Cameras, Oh My is focused on those three things! She’s done some super epic interviews with The Clones Wars team members and has some great character discussion posts; I happily got to contribute to the Luke Skywalker Discussion and the Han Solo Discussion. She also has a regular links post which I really enjoy! She’s been a great, professional blogger and a great follower as well. 🙂 She loves Han Solo and also takes sharp photos. 😛

Than there’s Jedi-Chick. She’s crazy fun because she’s so enthusiastic! She loves Star Wars and is a huge Luke and Mara Jade fan. She’s fun to fangirl with over our favorite movies and books! XD She has a great blog called To Thine Own Self Be True, in which she blogs Star Wars and fangirl life. She recently saw one of my most favorite movies ever, Captain America: The First Avenger and is now deep in Marvel Comics land of superheros! She’s very friendly and is fun to talk too! She does great blog posts and leaves very enthusiastic comments! I’m excited to see what pictures she gets during the next year!

And than there’s my sister, Kayla. Kayla is fifteen and she is my best friend. She’s quite the fangirl in her own way and she is exceptionally good with photography and filmming. She runs her blog Jedi Filmmaker, in which she posts about just about anything, but mostly film reviews, Star Wars posts and posts on film making. She LOVES Star Wars, especially Luke Skywalker, whom she is trying to collect all action figures of. She is also a big Captain America and Thor fan. It will be fun doing this challenge with her, even though we’ll both need to share the same camera! XD

And then there’s me, the Captain. XD I’d say more, but talking about one’s self isn’t cool, so I’ll let you get to know me as we go along! Lol

Considering we’ll be doing this challenge together for a whole year, I figured it nesscessary to at least let y’all know who we are.

All four of us are Christians and we love Jesus with all our hearts, and all four of us are die-hard Star Wars fans!

And we’re all taking pictures together!

The First Post

This is my photo challange blog: I’m taking the challenge of snapping 365 pictures–one per day–for the entire year. And most (maybe all) will be of my Christmas gift, kitten Princess Leia. Princess for short. I want to capture her growth from eight weeks old to over a year, and this is the perfect way to do it!

Joining me are my blogging buddies; my sister Kayla and Savanna and Jedi-Chick! The four of us are doing this together and we’re all so excited!

Links to their photo blogs or regular blogs coming shortly. 🙂 Probably in a post about us.

And here’s my Princess.

I can’t wait to see her grow up!
