2017

Time flies when you’re not blogging! Just another cat blog… temporarily resurrected, brought back to life, like a breath of fresh air. I have a zillion things to do, like, find a job, cook vegan noms, vacuum cat hair, and save the planet, but I’m laid up with my second blood clot of the year. … Continue reading

2016

So, I have no time to blog. It just hasn’t been a priority. I bought a place, moved, and have been living a home-improvement/painting/things breaking/getting settled kind of nightmare ever since. Don’t worry, the cats are fine 🙂  Really, happier than ever. I have 1,000’s of pictures to prove it. Here’s one: It’s only been … Continue reading

Sabbatical

noun  1. a period of paid leave granted to a college teacher for study or travel, traditionally every seventh year. Ok, so maybe that’s not what really happened.  I know I’m not the only one that has a blog, maybe even pays for some nice upgrades like no-ads, and then COMPLETELY ABANDONS it. Do you know … Continue reading

The Scent of a Cat

The Scent of a Cat

Another Rambling Photo Blog Featuring My New Camera, My Cats, and My Life. I’ve been playing with my new camera again. And thinking a lot about simplifying my life. I’ve decided to embrace the concept of massive downsizing to a small one-bedroom apartment (which is still going to be stupidly expensive, but all I’m willing … Continue reading

New technology! That’s like a disclaimer of sorts, for this first post in a while but ALSO my first post from new new tablet! You see, I work from home. So, writing my blog means sitting down at my desk off hours, which just feels like, well, more work.  And my phone, although capable, is … Continue reading

A Pet’s Pet Name

What’s in a name? My parents just adopted a new cat. It’s a shelter cat that is 9 years old.  Within a day, the cat had settled in nicely, isn’t a picky eater, uses his box, and lounges around on the couch purring. They have (re)named him Sweety 5. I also renamed my cats when … Continue reading

It’s been a while…

Wow. Just wow. I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since JANUARY. There’s a good reason for that. It’s called the “busy season” in my little Tribal Belly Dance World.  This all happened (plus a few more shows I haven’t mentioned), involving rehearsals and costuming for, on average, 6 days a week for 5 months: This … Continue reading

New Years Resolutions

I know, it’s almost pointless.  But I’m going to try. More Green Tea, Less Black Tea This one I think I can actually do.  Based on that freakishly successful experiment in March 2013 that went awry and turned nearly permanent – quitting coffee. Lose 5-10 lbs. Before any and all of my upcoming Spring performances. … Continue reading

Seasons Changing

Seasons Changing

It’s Fall Now… I’d rather be writing about more important things like how pissed I am at our government for how the last 16 days were handled or how confused I am about my need to switch from my current incredibly-high-deductable health insurance plan to something else now available because of Obamacare, but instead I … Continue reading

In Memory…

In Memory…

This is actually a follow up to my post Crazy Cat Lady.  In that post I tried to dispel the myth that having a blog about your cats (truth:  80% cats, 10% dance, and 10% food) makes you a crazy person.   The key to dispelling that myth is posting another blog about my awesome … Continue reading
