Sunrise

Sunrise Over Wright Quad

This is by way of a wee test. My beloved FlickStackr app was removed from the app store by Apple. The developer said they weren’t going to try to resubmit, so that left a huge hole for me, because it was the only app I’ve found that provides HTML for Flickr images.

Well, it’s back! They’ve changed the name to PhotoExplorer, but it’s the same app with the same functionality, including HTML. So now I won’t have to go back and edit images in blog posts. (If I didn’t edit, no mouse-over test was provided, which isn’t friendly for visually impaired folks.)

Anyway, strong recommend for this app, if you use Flickr and blog images on mobile. It’s US$2.99 and worth every penny.

More Rain

Rain

Thomas waited until it was pouring, to ask to go outside. I told him to cross his legs for five minutes, until the rain lets up.

We had a brief rain storm, and then a double rainbow with spokes appeared.

Piglet

Piglet's Fortress of Solitude

Sometimes Piglet is unbearably cute. I’m convinced that’s the only reason he’s
still alive, because if he weren’t, someone would have murdered the little
terror long ago.

Silhouette

Silhouette

Last night my furnace switched off before the house was up to temperature, and when I checked the breaker, it had tripped and the entire panel was hot. AIEEE! Not wanting to burn down the whole building, I left the breaker off and called maintenance this morning. After much trouble-shooting, it turned out that the problem was with the 1960s era breaker box.

So I spent the day freezing (and starving!) while electricians tried replacing wiring and old breakers. But the panel still kept overheating, so they finally pulled it and replaced the whole thing.

Thomas was a very good boy while a bunch of total strangers set up camp and worked in the dining room. He schmoozed when they came over to say hi, but the rest of the time he hung out on his tuffet and supervised.

Doesn’t he look sweet? You’d never guess that he stole an entire stick of butter and ate the whole thing, paper wrapper and all.

Stink-eye

When you interrupt your dog’s meditation to ask him how he can be so damn cute.

Mani-pedi Time

Mani-pedi Time

Thomas hates nail trims with the heat of a thousand suns. The first time I tried ro cut them, he totally freaked out and growled at me.

Mani-pedis still aren’t his favorite thing, but as long as he’s distracted with peanut butter, he’s mostly cooperative.

I think we can both live with that.
