Things! In! Bags!

Things!  In!  Bags!
One in an ongoing series.

Our drinking fountain has been broken for months. They finally fixed it a week or two ago, but today it was covered with the university’s standard “out of order” trash bag.

At the Bad Place

Woe Foot

It must be Spring, because Thomas was stung by another damn bee. I took him straight to the vet this time. They gave me some prednisone to take home with me, in case he developed hives again. I kept him doped up on Benadryl all weekend though, so no hives.

Poor dog is a bee magnet.

Found on the sidewalk on 7th Street.

And I finally paid to have the ads removed from the blog. Probably not something most folks notice, since everyone seems to read via a feed, but the ads won’t annoy ME anymore.

This is the same tree, same day, three years apart. I don’t think we are ever going to get a Spring this year.

I made oats upma last night. The cabbage was so pretty I didn’t want to chop it up.

Chain Migration

Chain Migration
from the introduction to Covered Wagon Women, volume 5

If you think chain migration is a new thing, or that it’s a bad thing, you’re mistaken. It’s how people have moved the world over, forever and ever.

Best Biscuit Pan

Square Skillet

I think my mom found this pan at Goodwill, then gave it to me. It’s absolutely the best biscuit pan ever.

Squishy Foot Warmer

Squishy Foot Warmer

There are times when Thomas frustrates the hell out of me, with his constant puppy energy, but he also is the very best nap enabler, so I can’t really complain. And he keeps my feet warm, too.
