The Face of Two

When you are two, you (apparently) don’t need to hold hands when walking on the sidewalk.

Also pictured: Meeow (freshly made Build-a-Bear Birthday Kitty)

Happy Birthday, Baby Dear. You’re making too much noise for me to write a more lengthy post.

PS Meeow is now naked and Big Kitty is wearing her Hello Kitty underwear. Ellie was very specific about the two Es in Meeow’s name.


I am thankful for finished objects.


In time to wear it for Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for Ellie. But that’s kind of a given.


Itty bitty vintage button.

I am also thankful for Tofurkey. A coyote ran off with our turkey (they got it out of the pen along with some other peoples’). Tofurkey saved the day. Ellie likes the fake meat better anyway.

Thankful Thursday (2 in a series)


I am thankful that I got this cold last. Everyone who lives here would have starved if I hadn’t.

I am thankful for the cats who seem to think that fevers are an invitation to cuddle. It’s homey.

And (though the fever kept me from Veterans Day festivities for the first time since we moved here) I am thankful for the men and women and animals that have served in the United States Armed Forces. Thank you for keeping us safe. Thank you for making sacrifices so that others don’t have to.

Now, because I like dogs and I like soldiers, here are some dogs who are really happy to see their soldiers. There are lots, but if you only watch one, make it the first one. The first one kills me.
