One Moment Please…

I’ve been meaning to update the theme here for ages. This time I’m trying to do it myself (to impress my code monkey) but it’s slow going. The header menu is painfully out of date and I’m going to hide it just as soon as I find the right chunk of code…

Edit: Bwahahahaha

Edit #2: Yesssssssss I figured out how to add a search box, I am great at this!

Great haul from Shepherd’s Harvest this year. Apparently I am unable to walk past the Sun Valley booth without a sweater quantity. Pocketbook unhappy, but my North Shore is going to be glorious.

Played Abyss with our friends Kadi and Teresa tonight, before getting down to the business of watching Game of Thrones. We are dorks, and have a standing Games and Games date for the entire run of this GoT season. It’s so much more fun to watch as a group, especially with Kadi, who takes it so seriously.
They are really great friends to hang out with, I’m so grateful to know them.

Azaleas, I think? They have different varieties up here than we did in Oklahoma, so sometimes it’s hard to tell.

Today I worked with Kadi and Teresa in their garden – it was just so amazing, getting my hands in the dirt again. Apparently I would make a good guardian; at least it looked that way when the three of us were walking home from the garden center, and I was carrying the Giant Hook. Our tomatoes and basil will be safe, at least!

It looks like we’re putting off the house hunt again, but hopefully I’ll have my own garden to play in next Spring. In the meantime, friends who let me sponge off of their produce will keep me going.

Window shopping on the way home from knitting. Trying to build up some endurance so I can walk around London next month without whining at Michael the whole time. It’s weird, walking actually hurts my various body problems more than running does. But why should my bones choose now to start making sense?

They were trying to murder each other five minutes ago.

We’ve had them a bit over six months now and I think we all have each other pretty much figured out.  They are cute and I like them but I don’t love them to distraction the way I did Bucket. We waited two years so it’s not that – maybe I just have a callus from the damage that was done when we lost him. I dunno.  Maybe it’s just because Kyrie is a jerk and Smudge won’t quit waking me up with head butts from his ridiculously strong neck every single fricking morning. Maybe I’m a monster. Whatever.

What I do know is that I need to move their litter boxes to the bathroom. It’s not the most welcoming presence in the guest room.

Someone has overcome her fear of the porch. Michael isn’t comfortable letting her roam free out there though. I think cats in general are smart enough not to jump down from the second floor, but I respect his feelings and keep her on the harness if I’m not holding her. (Now.)

She hates it.
