there i was, fighting off a raging grizzly bear with a cocktail toothpick and a bag of schnitzel, when suddenly…

Ok, so he’s not a raging grizzly. He’s much more a tiny little cat who apparently doesn’t understand how a dog crate works. This is one of his new favorite places to hang out. I suspect it’s because it puts him close to the TV.

Things here have been rather lovely. I joined the gym again this morning and I’ve been trying to do better with eating reasonably healthy stuff. Like sugar free peach jello and raspberries. That’s one of my all-time favorite healthy treats. And I got some amazing green grapes at the grocery store the other day. Absolute delish.

Also delish was this ensemble on Friday. The shawl was made with yarn I picked up in Dublin and that leather thingy is something I got at the yarn shop here. It’s amazing and it goes with everything.

I’ve started working on a new shawl already and it’s coming along quite well. I’ll have to get a picture soon. I’ve been trying to knit at lunch while I talk to Lancelot. It’s a delightful way to pass the time. And he’s just a delightful man.

This is probably the best picture of Eric I’ve ever taken. He generally hates to have his photo taken. But he’s stunning and his mama loves him.

This is likely going to be a rough week. The semester starts next Monday and so everyone is realizing they probably need to come by for a visit. Except there’s only so much of me to go around. Job security, yes. Massive headache, absolutely.

All I can do is stay on top of my tasks, take care of myself as best I can, and remember my mantra…

I do not look good in prison orange.
