I don't mind stealing bread

I have been away from this blog for awhile, mainly because I've been at a loss for words in many areas of my life.

Now, here again, I don't want to rage at anyone (who will likely never read this anyway), I don't want to express my extreme disappointment in some people I (wrongly?) consider my friends, I don't want to rehash old (but ongoing) worries, anxieties, frustrations, and fears.

If I'm going to get through this, it is going to be by remaining positive, afterall. So I thought I'd instead share a few small pleasures I have enjoyed in the past few weeks.

- humidity that wilted everything in sight, but helped my orchids bloom beautifully on the porch

- Yoshi and Beeb greeting me when I got home from work

- strawberry rhubarb pie that Tree ended up hating, so shucks, I had to eat the whole thing myself ;)

- resuming work on my WWII foot locker project

- the new kitty, Fiyero, still insisting on sleeping sweetly next to me

- preparing for a breathtaking Halloween

- a zucchini as big my foot

"but I can't feed on the powerless
when my cup's already overfilled"

- Temple of the Dog "Hunger Strike" -

Kitties sleeping are so much fun! I hope you weren't awoken to the sound of loud purring.

I'm glad to see a post from you, I was hoping you were alright. That cucumber (or zucchini?) looked amazing! I can't believe you got one that big! Enjoy!

You know you can call me anytime if you need to talk...about anything...unless I'm one of those friends you mentioned...i feel horrible about not being able to come down last weekend....

Thanks, I was just taking a break. And that's a zucchini - it was hidden under one of the plants so we didn't see it until it was that big. Oh and I'm so happy to hear the baby is here! I can't wait to see some pics! :D


No, no, I wasn't talking about you at all. I know you really wanted to come down here for the cookout, and I understand you couldn't - but at least you responded to my invitation. Several others ignored my (repeated) calls/texts. How fucking rude, seriously. If you don't want to or can't come down, at least tell me. It has kind of been an ongoing issue with those individuals, so I've pretty much washed my hands of them at this point. Not that they'll notice. :/
