I don’t know what it is….

…. about Bitchface/Fat Cat curling up on my lap that makes Tiny Kitten want to curl up on top of her, but it happens almost every time it gets cold. Bitchface is not amused. Neither am I, really, because I have to keep leaning back to keep Tiny Kitten balanced …

It’s like looking into the sun

OK; so, the day I took this, I was also wrapping Christmas presents and madly painting and glazing the last of what I wanted to get fired in the kiln before Christmas, and who needs a picture of that, right?! And I felt I’d done enough cute cats-and-dogs-snuggling-together pictures in …

Catching up with family

One thing I like about this time of year is catching up with Aunt Gay and Uncle Joe. Since they got home right before Christmas, we’ve had dinner with them three or four times – most recently at Chopstix, surprisingly not closed for the holidays this year. And I’m already …

What this knitter needs is a beer

I know I say this all the time, so you’re probably surprised that I’m surprised this still happens, but why do strangers want to give you business advice? Especially when they’ve never even met you before, know nothing about your business… or even worse they DO know you, rarely purchase …
