Sunday shenanigans

March 18, 2018

Computer shenanigans, that is. This morning I went to a fabulous yoga class, and  I also went running. But besides that, I have been staring at my computer.

February 14, 2018

i hope it is a good one for you.  here, it’s a warm day at least, although there’s no sign of the sun thus far. winnie is much happier now that chester is gone.  he hangs around near us most of the time, and he’s more calm.  so even though we’re sad, at least winnie […]
