Two days until Faire!

Oh, the joy of faire!

And this last part is sadly lacking sound (darn youtube!) but there is an extremely cute puppy alert at about 1:40.


Cat Ladder

There’s no guessing who rules the castle at this house!


Yep.  That is a cat ladder.  And for the curious and/or the owners of an outdoor obsessed feline, there’s an entire blog devoted to cat ladders.

New Phone Joy


It’s a LG CF360.  It has a music player, camera, and video.  Plus a ton of other things that I’ll never, ever use.  (Heck, I didn’t know half of what my old phone did, and I owned it for about four years.)

Why I Love Late July


Freshly picked green beans, grown in my own garden, about to be cooked with bacon.

Most are Blue Lake, but the purple ones are a mystery heritage bean that are just starting to produce.  Too bad they don’t stay that pretty; they turn green as they cook.  Oh, and there’s some Scarlet Emperor Runner beans in there too.  They taste good (despite having fuzzy skins like peaches which need to shave), but the real reason I grow them is because of how pretty they look entwined on the trellis.  Other beans have little barely visible white flowers; runner beans have gorgeous bright red blossoms.
