Babysitter's Club

I've been babysitting for several weeks. A teen-aged friend of mine needed a place to keep his chickens for a while. Actually it was 100+ chickens. The keyword being "was". Due to my swell animal husbandry skills in combination with his "not quite adequate" fence building skills, add to that an attack from a natural born killer, you have a recipe for disaster. There are now about 70 chickens and one very happy, healthy, well-fed skunk. My chicken numbers are dwindling but on the other hand, my skunk is thriving.

I've got places to go, people to see...

and things to carry and now, thanks to Roxanne at Cheetah Velour, I have the cutest aqua bag with the sweetest green lobsters to hold my things! Don't you just love it? Most days are fun but today was really, really, really fun! I love surpises and when I got my mail today here was this waiting for me. Thanks Roxanne for this cute crustacean bag and thanks for making my day special!

As summer simmers...

I have found myself to be an infrequent blogger, very blase and uninspired. That is until I came across these images. Once more I am amazed and in awe of the creative genius that some possess.

Just when you think you've seen it all...

A sleeping giant was awakened in Nantes, France, the birthplace of author Jules Verne. This giant puppet was made by theatrical artistes Royale de Luxe. I have no words to describe the awe that I feel when seeing such creative people at work. via socyberty
