Tallulah-Palooza Friday

If there were a dog version of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), I think a sculpture of this girl's head, in this pose, would be there...

Lazy, I Am

(How Yoda-like that post title is...). But I am feeling lazy, so I simply present to you: bougainvillea, which I love (as long as it isn't in my yard!). Enjoy!

Kanpei to the Girls!

What do you do when your dear friend has had a health scare that turns out A-OK in the end? First you might put a small curse on the technician who scared your friend with her comments(just a small curse, nothing terrible, just something like "May you always get that one potato chip in the bag that tastes like rotten feet" or "May the cable reception go out on you right when the Top Chef is revealed" or "May you get a questionable haircut right before your high school reunion"). Then the two of you might heave a giant sigh of relief, go have a beer, and toast to continued good health. Am I right, girlie?

When Life Hands You Carrots...

...or, if your CSA, week after week, hands you lots and lots and lots of carrots: Make spicy pickled carrots! Yum-yum! I used this recipe, from the Smitten Kitchen blog (which I lurve, by the way--check out the peach and creme fraiche recipe on there today).

Mademoiselle Lulu

You know how some sites warn you if photos are NSFW (not safe for work)? This post is NSFYPH (not safe for your poor head, since it WILL explode from the cuteness). Really...don't say you haven't been warned! Now, if only we had Scratch-n-Sniff going on here--ah, the glorious puppy breath!

Voila: Lulu, the baby bull terrier. And no, she's not mine! And no, Tallulah Mae and Lulu have not yet made each others' acquaintance...






So? Is your head still attached to your neck, or has it just blown clear off from cuteness overload? (I've had to attach mine with a sturdy tether in order to even write this post!)

Aren't all dogs just beyond darling, each in his/her own way?!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Tallulah Mae and Stanley attended a doggy ice cream social.
It was also attended by this handsome Great Dane in a t-shirt.
This is Tallulah Mae's patented "extra-special-pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top-oh-stranger-lady-give-me-some-more-doggy-ice-cream" look.
It worked.

Look It Up in the Dictionary: What Summer Tastes Like

A nectarine, eaten over the sink to catch the delicious juice running down your chin...

A Fair Day at the Fair: Odds and Sods

Fun at the fair! Lots of exclamation points!
The Turkey Stampede! Which is exactly what it sounds like! (They chased feed in a motorized toy truck)!
A turkey named Turkules (rhymes with "Hercules)!

Someone's "collection" of whiskers that fell off their cats!
Sewing!
Jams and jellies!
My collection of floating (or "floaty" pens), which did not win a ribbon! Boo!

Cornhole (!?) champions!
Tigers in wood!
Rocks that look just like food!
Paul's Big Balls!
Fluorescent rocks!

A Fair Day at the Fair: All Creatures Great and Small













Above, without comment, are some lovely animals we saw at the fair. It was truly a privilege to have the opportunity to see and interact with all of these sweet creatures.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

I love how this almost looks like a solarization: Man Ray, meet Tallulah Mae!
