Le boyfriend and I are house sitting a friends’s country house till Sunday. There are four very affectionate dogs that need to be fed and looked after, tons of books (comic books and graphic novels, mushroom growing guides, a huge Ray Bradbury novel with trippy illustrations, a random Sweet Valley High book, what the hell), bongs all over over the place, lots of wooden furniture made by the homeowner, several wooden coils used as makeshift tables, lots of custom artifacts (the homeowner is a jewelry maker), including a chainmail hood that I of course tried on immediately (it’s surprisingly heavy), a kidney-shaped pool, a sort of abandoned tennis court, a small swamp and a lake. And several spiders, damn it.
I’m buying a few rolls of film today to take pictures of everything (except the spiders). This weekend looks like it’s going to be amazing :)
The window shop on the ground floor of my building has a shop cat called Maggie, a beautiful 4-year old white and orange kitty. The first time I tried to hold her, she squirmed and meowed her way off my arms. Still, every time I come home and see her on the sidewalk, I take a few minutes out of my day to pet her because she is an adorable ball of fluff. Today, I saw her sitting inside the store and called out to her, and she jumped out of her spot, mrrreowed really loudly and ran towards me. She let me hold her for a while and purred her little heart out.
Earning a cat’s love makes me feel so accomplished!
I dreamed I was wearing heels like these and couldn’t stop wobbling all over the place. Zero glamour or grace. I’m glad capes are coming back in style. Very glamorous and graceful without the added possibility of acting like a derp.
Orion introduced a new little doeling to the world just before lunch today. Here she is at around 15 minutes old. We are so grateful to have such incredible moms here on the farm. It takes your breath away again and again.
EEEK I have so much love for baby animals, especially shy baby animals!
My friends’ cooking abilities never cease to surprise me. Here’s today’s lunch: vegan pizza made with homemade dough, homemade hummus, tomatoes, red peppers, onion, garlic and chives. SO FREAKING DELICIOUS!
I made vegan lemon pound cake as well and it was amaaazing and surprisingly similar to the non-vegan one.
I tried to look through my apartment’s peephole just now and miscalculated the distance so much that I headbanged it instead. I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a bruise on my eyebrow bone. How. HOW does this even happen.
