I love to camp, but it is surprisingly annoying to be trapped in your tent in the morning because a bison is lounging about just outside the door. You have to wait; you can't hurry them. They are both cranky and fast moving.
I take as long to get around to reading blogs as it takes me to put up a new post. With the quicker forms: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram I tend to "fill up my time before I have visited all of my old friends. If you decide to get a tattoo I hope you will post that. I have not - all my children have some kind of ink, but I have never seen anything I wanted to see forever on my skin so it's just wrinkles and age spots for me. On your past post - Cape Cod is likewise amazingly white. It's the single whitest place I have ever lived and it seems so odd.

Turkey thighs! No turkey breast or turkey roll for me.
Oh the sweetness of puppies!

You look wonderful - and pink is definitely your color!

If she had left Bill she would likely not be in public life now - no 2008 run, no Sec'y of State. no run for 2016. Those birds work as a team, and the unfortunate Monica would not have been the first indiscretion she turned a blind eye to. I will vote for her if she is the Democratic candidate in 2016, but I will not be thrilled. IHMO she is not a person of strong principles and only honest when there is no other choice. After "knowing" her all these years I still cannot say with certainty what her opinion is on any issue and if I guessed I could not say with confidence that she would act according to that opinion. She's smart & savvy though, and may do very well.

Nice catch - that's a beautiful rainbow. Every time I post a picture it's white white and more white. I am so eager to see any outdoor color besides white or brown. I hope spring is on its way to you.

Beautiful, dreamy pictures and your little one looks like a precious princess. Enjoy your mild weather; here on the east coast it's just a faint memory.

Oh, your beautiful hair. But you still have your beautiful life and your smile so all is well. May the next year bring you more joy and fewer challenges.
Arm warmers would be nice,or maybe a pretty cowl.
She's just delicious! Happy New Year to you. I wish you a year of joy and comfort.

I've got the urge to bake some bread too. Something about the cold weather makes me long for the yeasty smell of fresh bread. Yours looks good - nice solid loaves. Happy New Year to you, and good things coming in the coming year.

I think Lena Dunham is talented and original. I hope this early success an exposure will not have a detrimental effect on her. I won't be reading her book - at 65 autobiographies by people younger than my own children have little interest for me. My reaction tends to be along the lines of "some day, I hope very soon, you will understand that better"! All of my personal regrets have to do with things I did not know at the time.

Magic Loop for plain socks, double points for patterned. Wood or bamboo for lace or ribs, metal for cabled.

I would have a hard time giving those up too! So charming.

sounds like everything is ready for the little princess. Good luck to all of you: an easy labor and a healthy baby.

I will probably add this to my reading list, but Angela's Ashes put me into such a rage I was angry for weeks. My family suffered (not nearly to the same extent) from my father's selfishness and irresponsibility. Reading that book brought back to me the things I did without (dental care, school supplies, opportunity) as a child. It's a good thing to learn about people who pulled themselves up though.

Good news indeed that your chemo is nearly finished. Be kind to yourself; recovering your strength may come slower than you would like. Love and light to you on the path ahead.

Happy Birthday, looks like you had a blast. Hope this year is as productive and interesting as the last one.

Some days even blog posts can be hard to come by. Since my family complains when I don't post I guess they are my motivation.

They look interesting! I've always loved ceramics but never got up the nerve to try any for myself.

That's a good looking crew!

The ideas above sound good. Just check the packet to be sure it says to direct sow and you are golden. More sun is better, but I have grown all of these in partial sun with OK results.
