Ignorance Really IS Bliss

If Mabel doesn't see IT, IT isn't there. Period.

A package full of wonderfully crafty goodies recently arrived at my door from the super crafty KB. Look, it's a card from Elwood.

Check out the amazing homemade cupcake pincushion! So..freakin'...cute...

A lovely recycled felt dolphin toy for Ms. Mabel.

Some really nifty Mabel cards made at Love them!


The toy has passed the Mabel test. She adores it!

Thanks for all of the goodies, KB. We miss you--come home soon.

Kitty Porn

Yesterday I brought home a new kitty! He and Griffin instantly fell in love.

He's a boy. No, Mabel isn't very happy about it, but we're hoping eventually she'll come around.

We haven't named him yet, but so far we're thinking of Oliver Picklepuss or Cougar. But, we're waiting to learn a little more about his personality before we choose a name.

His backstory:
He was found my a co-worker's finacee (who is a vet tech) all tiny and skinny in a parking lot. They took him to her work, bathed and flea dipped him, checked him for kitty leukemia and kitty aids (both negative) and took him home. And then they showed him to me Monday afternoon. I couldn't say no :-) I mean, look at that cute little face--who could refuse such a cutie?

This Weekend

It looks like it's going to be another super fantastic san francsico summer weekend complete with fog, drizzle, and sweltering 50 degree temperatures. If it does turn out to be that cold and dreary, I know where I'll be spending the weekend. Right on the couch cuddled up with a certain furry feline friend and a good book (or a crappy 80s movie). Sky's the limit, people.

Road Trip Redux

Well, we spent 32 hours straight in the car driving Griffin's Mother's car to Minneapolis, MN.

We stopped approximately 20 times for bathroom breaks, snacks, and gas, and stopped for only one major meal--dinner in Salt Lake City on Saturday night. Here is a quick recap of the trip via photos (I had to amuse myself somehow).

Packing up the car.

Obligatory pre-road trip portrait.

We've been back all week, and it's been tough getting back into the swing of things, and even harder working up the willpower to drive anywhere ever again...
