My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

You know I'm in!

Isn't Image Chef just wonderful? I also used it when I announced the winner of my contest a while back. Great stuff.


I LOVE free toys! hee hee Thanks again!


I am doing NaBloPoMo again this year, too (and I think that's how I found you last year).
I'm coming out of lurkdom to tell you that I linked to your blog last night. It was a post called, 'beyond the breast and past the pink.' I wanted to let people know about great blogs by people who've been touched by non pink-ribbon cancers.
Specifically, I linked to your post about pimping your leg, as it is one of my very favourite posts by any cancer survivor, ever.


Awesome, Laurie! I think I found you through NaBloPoMo '06, also!

I am so glad you like my leg-pimping post. How great is my boyfriend?


Oh boy, I've been so sluggish about blogging lately. I wonder whether I could do it? I will give it some thought.

It'd be good for me, right?


Right! Go for it!

You don't have to write something brilliant or even coherent every day. You don't even have to write, really. You could just post a different picture of Ruby every day, and that would count. You just have to post a new entry in your blog every day of November to "win."

If you "win," that is, complete the task, you might actually get a prize (stuff donated by other participants, usually awarded by drawing, sometimes on merit). You will definitely get to adorn your blog with a lovely token of completion of some sort (see third graphic down in right sidebar for an example of one I made up for last year).

Go for it! You have nothing to lose but, well, nothing.
