amazing. If the above photograph, taken in Garberville,
California, had more curve in the road, it could have
been taken outside my front door. Lemme see if I
can get this camera to work.
an incredible similarity? Just add sunlight!
Funny, yesterday our heading was "Here Comes the Sun."
camera has decided to cooperate, here are some pictures.
First, Georgia's birthday gifts to me (Goddess bless'er):
The pig who
shoots fire out his snout.
dogs who shoot salt and pepper out of their butts.
the cool little piggy candle holders from Joe & Sandra
This is my
cool aquarium from Eric. Two fish died already.
:( Nathan decided to crank up the heater and add
some food. We almost had fish soup it got so hot.
I put ice cubes in, turned off the light and opened the
top and I think we got it cooled down fast enough that
the survivors are only mildly retarded. The two
that died were puny ones any way. We'll see how
many are left by Monday.
This is the
bane of my existence, the psycho dog, Spooky. He
has good intentions and is a sweet spirit, but he's only
6 months old, so that's about 3 1/2 in human years, I
guess and he has this big ol' body and lots and lots of
enthusiasm. If we can speak in dog allegory, he is
my husband's deadbeat friend who moved in, eats all the
time, bothers the neighbors, tackles the kids and chases
the cats. The hardest part is he ADORES me.
I'm not sure why. I keep telling myself if we can
get him past the next year, I'll have a friend for life.
Meanwhile, he's a bit of a pain in my ass. Eric
has offered to find him another home, but I'd feel bad
giving up this early in the game no matter how much of
an inconvenience it is.
ZERO weekend plans and I plan to keep it that way.
One thing I know for sure is that I especially plan to
NOT go down the mountain for once. I do have to
get off my ass insulation and get this house clean
because tonight we celebrate New Moon with the coven.
I've really been goofin off this week big time (my best
birthday present, I think) and Eric has been an angel
about it, so I need to take my good intentions and put
them to work on this place. Surely, I can give it
a couple of hours, right?
I hope all
of you have a magnificently fabulous weekend full of
excitement if you want it and tranquility if that's your
goal and joy no matter what.
