So, Don’t I Get Ruby Slippers?

It’s Friday morning and I’m trying to combat grogginess with coffee. Mother Nature has been doing a smack-up job of keeping me from sleeping soundly through the night lately. Storms, possums, crochet. (Does Mother Nature crochet?) Whatev.

We had tornado warnings here in Austin last night, and I had the craziest dream about how my house got swept up in a tornado (very Dorthy Gale-ish-ly), and landed in another neighborhood. I went outside the house to find out where I was. I asked a group of high school girls who were walking down the street, and one of them said, “You’re on the border between Texas and Indiana”. Ah. Oz.

Brewing up a Fast-Topic-Changing-Friday. Strong, but never bitter.

I’m just dabbling in crochet. I’m not switching crafts….

Trust me. I’m still a Knitter-with-a-Capital-K.

Next…!

img_7722.JPG RAWWRRRRR! I AM AN EVIL POSSUM COME TO RUIN YOUR EVENING WITH MY PRESENCE. YOU WILL HAVE NO PEACE AS LONG AS I STAND HERE. MWAHAHAHAHA.

Creepy bastard.

img_7723.JPG I like this photo. It looks like Tippy has given up hunting and decided that posing next to the possum with a sad face is enough for now.

They had been “hunting” this guy for about an hour when I pulled out the camera.

Next…!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I love the Tippy picture! I can hear the screaming just looking at the other two photos. Poor frustrated doggies.

  2. Yup, I would never have imagined you picking up a crochet hook unless it was for a knitting project – but I approve. (ha ha, like you’re waiting for that).

    Love the colours in your second photo – gorgeous.

    Silly dogs – the neighbours must love that!

    Tornado warnings are very scary – maybe that’s why the possum was there – he was freaked out with all the electricity in the air…. what would your dogs do if they got ahold of it?

    Franklin Habit? that will be a fun radio show – can we listen to it anywhere?

  3. Possums are positively evil-looking. (Shudder) Horrible things – poor traumatized doggies!
