Other people's pets


Some photos of other people's dogs from my trip to Oregon last month. Mostly my sister's dogs, Stella and Tana.



I have been recovering from two back to back trips. The first was to Portland, to visit my sister who just moved there. We had a great time. The weather wasn't perfect, but every time we reached wherever we were...

Kitten adventures: update


Kitten update: they are doing great. We are all getting along well, except for when I try and hit the snooze button a couple of times and they are ready for their breakfast. They definitely keep each other well exercised...



Every heart is a package, Tangled up in knots someone else tied* I saw Josh Ritter and his band play tonight at the Southern Theatre. The night was beautiful. The venue beautiful (I do have a soft spot for vintage...

Leo update


When I was preparing to adopt my kittens, I was thinking a lot about Mr. Leo (above from his time with me this summer). I had a lot of guilt about taking him in this summer and then giving him...

Midweek last week, I read this post on The Kitchn about a polenta party and I was completely inspired. I wanted to throw a party, or at the very least attend one. My current apartment is just not condusive to...

These three photos were in a roll of film I picked up today. It's been in my Pentax since just after Christmas. They do not really relate, except that they make me smile. Here is them in the reverse order...

People I wish I was near more frequently


A visit to Rockmill


I've been feeling rather blue this week. It's a combination of things in my life conspiring to make me feel low and I needed something to snap me out of my funk. Luckily my grad school lady friends and I...

Happy Burns Night


(This cat has nothing to do with the rest of this post, I just thought I'd include a photo. He's my friend Ginny's cat. I visited with them in DC last weekend. They deserve their own post, but I haven't...

Hi Esther


I got a new lens for my digital camera today and took a couple of photos of my friend Esther. She just freshened up her hair color. Doesn't it look good? (Of course I post the giggling photo instead of...

Oh Thursday, where have you gone


I'm taking weaving again. It started Tuesday, but I was in again tonight to dye some fabric pieces I'm going to use in my project. (I'm making a rag rug for my parents. I have some blue fingers to prove...

Thoughts on wet hair in winter


& Do you think that I was foolish enough to get rid of my flannel sheets? This is a question I'm pondering, because I can't find my set and not having them sort of ruins the cuddly plan I had...
