Princess Buttercup

Princess Buttercup

That's one of my nicknames for Tiki. This is what I come home to if I don't make the bed in the morning: a princess pitbull with her head on MY pillow. Sheesh.

Tiki Loves Tue

Tiki viciously licks Tue's ear.  I laugh ridiculously at the end because Tiki sneezes.  My morning coffee makes a silent, stoic cameo.

Like a Good Girl

Lee of the Storm

I went to class today, even though I really didn't want to, seeing as I'm on vacation.  But I'm thankful I did because there was an in-class assignment that I forgot about.  Fortunately I had a good group.  Sigh.  I am SO TIRED of being a student.  That's a negative thing to say, but I think it is more the berocracy of the teacher credentialing system than the actual act of learning that is exhausting.

I Found a Pair

I finally found a pair of shoes that fit my stupid orthodic inserts. Actually they're not stupid, they're awesome and my feet don't hurt anymore, but they are really hard to fit into anything but running shoes.  These are Softspots and I found them for under $40 on clearance at DSW in Santa Clara.  Comfortable heels; I don't believe it!  Next mountain to die on: black knee-high boots.

Deeper and Deeper

I'll Show You Someplace Special

Today we're braving the rain and going over the hill so I can try and find some shoes.  I still have only two pairs that are really work appropriate, and I'm desperate to find a pair of boots.
I'm thankful, though, that I'm on vacation for a week.

...By Any Other Name, Would Be As Sweet...

Alan Chadwick Garden, UCSC

Yesterday was Valentine's Day.  I made coconut crusted tilapia with wasabi mashed potatoes and baby broccoli with bacon.  It was delicious.  I'm thankful that I can cook.

Back in Business

Shell Perspective

OK, so I'll never be a regular blogger.  Blah.
Today I'm thankful that we got out tax return.  Yay.
