We are cat-sitting Lily (the kitten we raised for Bob...a.k.a. Bobskitten, Bobcat, and Darlene.) She is a phenomenal feline. She only talks when she has something important to say. Is very well-groomed. Polite. Curious about the world. Responds well to criticism. Appropriately affectionate, but never needy. I could learn a lot from this cat!
BUT Courtney is getting some chickens and I will love them as if they were my own.
Last week was ladies' swap night and it was a hit. Eight purty gals attended, pilfered through piles of discarded wares, and left with armloads of "new" clothes, books, bath things, furniture, craft supplies, and decor. Trash to treasure! It was beautiful. Alex sent me a message about how she is enjoying the thongs she got at the swap, but she meant to say "things" rather than "thongs." I laughed out loud, although secondhand thongs wouldn't be all that far-fetched in our circle of friends. Underwear, bras, boyfriends, mouth guards, and even Divacups have been known to circulate...
I just finished reading the second anthology of Invincible Summer by Nicole J. Georges. She has been added to my heroine list. Here is a partial list of little inspirations I gathered from this group of her zines:
Tofu omelette with olives. Road trip with cherries. Missy Kulik. Vegan white chocolate peanut butter?!? Fake flowers. Embroidery. Sister Spit. Eating Chinese Food Naked. And carrot soup. (I tried her recipe today. It was easy and yum.) Thank you, Nicole, for doing what you do!
Tomorrow my head will be out of zine and comic world and back into my "workshop." I do enjoy my job...I just enjoy free time a whole bunch more. Don't we all?
