Cheating on my cat…not really

Out and about this Easter Sunday I happened upon a neighborhood cat in the Alphabet District. Little guy was not interested in people, but rather on munching the green-way greens.

Can’t Talk, Too busy

For serious, can’t talk. Too busy. So here’s a photo of a bunch of Shepard’s Wool. I didn’t buy them all, sadly. But I did manage to get first dibs this time instead of picking off the leftovers. =D  These two are the ones I got for myself. Not entirely sure what to do yet,… Read more »
