A Piece of My Heart

It is with a heavy heart that I say that Gus, the 12-year old beloved Basenji, passed away last week. I didn’t mention anything about his illness, as we were hoping for more good days and more time with him. I met Gus about a decade ago when I met Chris (my ex). When Chris […]

Hail to the Chief

Semi-Fast-Topic-Changing Friday on the menu today. May I suggest a Cabernet Sauvignon as your wine choice? First up – I’ve made it to DAY 300 in my year-long self-portrait photo project. THREE-HUNDRED. Now the panic is setting in…how do I NOT take a photo of myself every day when the project is finished?? It’s become […]

Crazy, Indeed

Just a quick post to say a few things: 1. Hurricane Ike didn’t hit Austin. We are safe and well with no damage to the house. 2. Hurricane Ike DID hit Houston. Chris (my ex) was without power until a couple of days ago. His house was hot and humid and needs repairs, so he […]

That Guy ripped one of his wool bicycling jerseys on a tree branch. He asked me to fix it, and “make it look like Frankenjersey”. Ooookay, you got […]

As if We Were Both Quite Insane

Pour some Fast-Topic-Changing-Friday on me. Okay. Warning: This is a seriously Basenji-heavy post. It’s been a seriously Basenji-heavy week. Brucie, my foster dog, started heartworm treatment this week. He is supposed to be still and quiet for TWO MONTHS. So That Guy bought this sweet, teenytiny bed for the teenytiny dog. Brucie never gets to […]

The Reject Pile

I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on a self-portrait photo project – a self portrait every single day for one year. Today I went back through the reject pile for some of the more ridiculous outtakes. There is a common theme with many of these photos…don’t ask me how, but I manage to take a […]

Brrrr!

Lights! Camera! Fast-topic-changing-Friday! Tropical Storm Edouard was a total disappointment ’round here. Austin’s thirsty lawns were only given a sip of water. However, the storm did drop the temperature about ten degrees. It was only 95 degrees that day! I tried to stay warm. This photo is part of my self-portrait project. Next…! Gus and […]

Monday is the New Friday

Monday isn’t really the new Friday, but a fast-topic-changing Monday can make it feel like it. I give you permission to pretend the weekend starts today! Funny, after not posting for a while, I’m kind of nervous. Like, maybe I’ve forgotten how to do this! Let’s see how I do… I’ve had all four Basenjis […]
