and here, by request, is mimi at the halloween parade. i didn't post this picture before because her costume is kind of lame. i am going to get started early next year and make her cerberus, the three-headed dog, with papier-mache. because i am a crazy craft person.


here is the finished lamp.

future lamp

this is my current project, other than the bison stew that's slow cooking in my oven right now, that is. it's going to be a lamp. it's made of bonsai wire--my favorite craft material, easily malleable and holds its shape well--and cut up old lampshade, so it's fire-proof, in theory.

halloween tompkins square dog run pictures

more pix

since blogger only lets you post a maximum of five pictures per post, and tons of other annoying reasons. i'll just leave this backwards.

the pool, the view.

the cottonwoods were unbelievably golden.


the road to the springs.

if you look on the left in the distance you can see a clump of cottonwoods. that's where the water is.

i guess the rest of the pictures speak for themselves. except for maybe the last one, cuz you might not know that's my boyfriend. those are his feet next to mine in the pool.
