RRRRRAWR! (Actually, that’s just him yawning. But doesn’t he look fierce? I need me some of that.) Seriously, though – very lazy day. Lots of napping going on. Laziness. Good for me. Made a frittata (below). Was trying to improve on my own technique, after sampling someone else’s at brunch. Very satisfying. Do you ever [...]

Yesterday when I was bagging up my kitchen garbage to take out, I spilled garbage juice all over my work pants and wool socks. Nasty. I immediately took them off and soaked them in a bucket of water with a few glugs of vinegar added, to help deodorize them. I’ll be laundering them today… First [...]
It never fails. I make a grocery store run, I end up with a green bean massacre on my hands. (My cats will eat all sorts of plants – including lilies – and green beans are one of their favorite things to snack on. When I bring my groceries in, they immediately go on a [...]
I store produce in two glass-fronted cupboards in my kitchen. Each cupboard holds several bowls on shelves, and to a friend of mine, it looks like the bowls magically replenish themselves every week. I wish. This whimsical idea has been entertaining me, though. What if I really did have magical bowls? What if they really [...]
On Monday nights a friend comes over for a visit. Guy rests on my work-table-turned-massage-table. All is well with the world. ___ The Tumblr #photo365 project.
I’ve been taking lots of photos of the guys since the “incident”, just in case they’re not with me much longer. Above is Guy on the upholstered rocker in my back room. Above and below are Guy in my bedroom. (Added later) Finally, this is Tear on my desk, hanging out with me and my [...]
A friend brought me lilies on Friday night. Little did either of us know that lilies are extremely toxic to cats. Two vet visits (one more to come) and $640 later, the cost of those lilies has been expensive, but I haven’t had to pay the ultimate price – the lives of my cats (I [...]
These are just a couple of shots of my guys from last weekend. Above is Tear, sleeping in on Sunday morning. Below are the two of them on my desk, while I drink tea from my favorite mug. I appreciate the companionship of pets.
I have a pinboard on Pinterest called “Where I want to be right now.” (If you click on that link in the previous sentence, you can visit. Highly recommended, because I’ll bet you’d like to be some of those places right now, too.) Where I’d like to be right now, though, is in bed. And [...]
Ever since one of my cats was sick, I’ve been taking the time to enjoy my companion animals, and be present to their beauty and the joy they bring me. One of them likes to snuggle up behind my neck when I’m sitting in my upholstered rocker – his claws gripping the fabric as I [...]
