Walking Weekend

April 6th, 2008 1 Comment

Saturday at the El Dorado Nature Walk with the boys, Brandon and Erik. We also got into a little bit of a public art project. As I was coming home the past week, I noticed there were these flat, wooden stakes duct-taped to a few lamp posts along the road. I wondered what they were for so I asked Brandon when we drove by. The most logical explanation is that these were parts of political campaign signs. Folks just removed


The next best thing

April 4th, 2008 No Comments

Today was just like any other day. I parked my car in the parking lot behind my building. My spot is the closest one to the gate to the apartment, and I usually would be the 2nd or 3rd car in the lot when I get home. I got out, got my stuff out of the back seat, and walked around the car. Athena was sitting in front of the gate. In the parking lot. And no, she wasn’t there

Meet Athena. AKA the community cat I have been calling “Parker”. I came downstairs to find one of the girls in the rental house holding the cat. Yes, the girls have adopted the cat and named her Athena. Since they couldn’t have her in the house, she has become the outdoor kitty. And yes, we can all feel free to hang with Athena. Y’all, I have a semi-permanent borrow kitten that I get to play with when I come home


Be Happy

I clipped this cartoon out of the back of Real Simple magazine years ago by Monica Sheehan called “Be Happy”. (Now available as a book, among a few other of her books.) I had it framed back then and it was essentially buried deep into the pit of my den. Upon the recent discovery of the piece, I made copy and framed it for Olaina. The frame is now sitting on my new desk; its twin sister on Olaina’s dresser


Dresden’s here!

After a week of the baby watch, Dresden is finally here! Brandon has just told me earlier that Aurora went into labor last night. I planned on calling James to say happy birthday anyway, so I gave him a ring. That was around 9:45. “Hi, Oakley.” “Happy birthday, James.” “And guess whose birthday it is also?” “Oh my god!” “In fact, perfect timing.” I heard a baby cry. “OH MY GOD!” “I gotta go.” “Okay, bye.” ETA: Dresden William “spawned”

I may be the last person on the planet to realize this, but it just now occurred to me that Nemo is “omen” spelled backward. Fun!
