sleeping beauty

This kitten will sleep just about anywhere in any position. She’ll just plop down when she gets exhausted. And she’s a very deep sleeper. But oh boy when she’s done with her nap – hide yo kids!

chasing mice

Great – Maeby discovered the mouse. Which means she wants to stand in front of the monitor and bat at it anytime you happen to be moving it around. So I found a website just for her – Cattv.com! Sucker…

the prettiest whistles won’t wrestle the thistles undone

A few weeks ago, on a tip from my sister, I made my way to BookPeople downtown to a book signing for Wildwood by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis. Colin Meloy is the lead singer and songwriter for The Decemberists, one of my favorite bands. Carson Ellis is a children’s book illustrator and Colin’s wife. The book looks fantastic, similar in style to Carson’s songwriting.

*Blog post title is a lyric from the song “The Hazards of Love 1” by The Decemberists

margot’s homemade hammock

We looked around for Margot and couldn’t find her. She had wedged herself between the couch and ottoman and made herself a comfortable hammock!
