Here I was and here I go again!

I'm sorry for these silly quick updates. I have that promised book report in the works, as well as some fun escapades, BUT right now I'm taking advantage of a day off and writing and cleaning and hanging out with the kitteh.

Again with the weird moves
In the past week or so I have:
-Passed the written exam for a learner's permit. (Yayay! Now all I have to do is learn to try and then I can be a real independent-like American.)
-Watched a rather awesome HBO film, that I heartily recommend.
-Finished a rough draft on a script.
-Made stuff (to be presented here soon.)
-Started a business! (to be presented here in the next month or so)
-Had a midnight visit with friends.
-Read three books. These ones here.
-Gone to three birthday parties.
-Canoed with hubby after work.
-Eaten at least 10 pounds of cherries, 10 pounds of nectarines and 10 pounds of blueberries.
-Done three different jobs.
-Enjoyed the sunshine.
-Given up caffeine.

So no wonder it's been little quiet here in this corner. Now that I actually look at that list, I feel slightly exhausted. I will however add that I have commemorated summer with these beautiful gifts from darling Heather and Missa and that I am still keeping tabs on what you guys are doing where you're at.

But now I get to go hang out with my furry friends, my loves.

See you soon, big hugs to all you beauties.


  1. Looking at that list, I'd be tired too! But it all sounds like a lot of fun. :)

  2. Wow, that little sewing machine is a blast from the past. The funny part is that I seem to recall even second guessing whether I should send it because it had that yellow flower on it, haha!

    Seems crazy now to think that I was screening out this color that, as it turns out, suits you so beautifully!

    I LOVE the tapestry skirt. Heather has great taste :D

    p.s. That last shot is awesome, your furry friends make quite the pair.

  3. nice to see you! that sewing machine pin is the cat's meow!!!! And the kitty is precious :) I too have been trying to give up caffeine for a while now... we have and on again off again love affair. Are you just going cold turkey?

  4. kissa is so irresistibly cute! love her sweet little face!

  5. Oh, you look so lovely! I always thoroughly enjoy your layering techniques :))
