Dear Auntie Martha died a few weeks ago. She was my grandmother's sister and the last of her siblings (and siblings-in-law). She had a wonderful life and I'm so happy I got to be a small part of it, especially... Continue reading

Here's an awesome (read: "goofy") picture from the flight over. We both have similar expressions and it just makes me laugh! (I should add a big "DERP!" to it...) At the airport, Harper helped Kurt with the luggage. After the... Continue reading

Willoughby is growing into a fine young cat. She is frisky and sweet and cuddly, all the things you want in an almost one year old cat. She sleeps on the bed and likes to lay on my chest when... Continue reading

Today Harper and I harvested our first batch of green beans. Harper picked and then we washed and ate the beans immediately. Yummy! Later we cooked then for dinner with a touch of butter. Still yummy! I love Harper having... Continue reading

I still don't quite feel like "Mother's Day" applies to me. Except that I have a wonderful mom who I love and adore. Here we are in May of 1967. My mom is Grace's age in this picture! Amazing. Happy... Continue reading

Harper went to the movie theater and saw her first feature film last Saturday! We chose the Disney Nature movie "Bears" and it went great. I wasn't worried that she'd be scared or upset (I went knowing that only fish... Continue reading

Okay it's almost two weeks gone now, but Easter was fun! We invited the "Other Harper" and her cousin Chloe for Harper's first Easter egg hunt. I went a bit overboard with Easter buckets and treats and about 40 eggs... Continue reading

Or as Harper might say "New!" Trader Joe's is our grocery store of choice and we go often. Even when we are just driving by Harper waves and says, "Hi Trader Joe's!" She has her favorite peeps there: Court, Alicia... Continue reading

When I say I want to be pen pals with Chris Hardwick, I mean it. I want to be actual old school, write-real-letters, put-a-stamp-on-the-envelope-and-mail-it type pen pals. Why so Y2K? With the 700 different ways to communicate today, creating a... Continue reading

A few weeks ago we had rain. A rare and wondrous thing in Los Angeles. We desperately need the rain and so do I. I think I have the opposite of Seasonal Affective Disorder. I need MORE cloudy rainy days... Continue reading

Our new cat, Willoughby, is truly a member of the family now. She clearly was ready for a house to live in because it really took her no time to figure out the cat box and to be comfy all... Continue reading

We are fortunate that we have a nanny part time to care for Harper while we work on other projects that we hope will become well-paying projects. I'm still looking for full time VFX work and Kurt is currently employed... Continue reading

When Jim Henson died in 1990, I almost burst into tears at work. His work had such a huge, wonderful impact on my childhood, in equal measure Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. He was gone too soon. I felt... Continue reading

I found this picture on the twitters - Pan Am 747 in the late 60's: It looks like a movie set, so much room, such luxury! Wait, now I'm sounding like the doge meme: Such space. So wish. Much class.... Continue reading
