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.

Yikes!! A gal's just never safe from monsters!!

It's an adorable photo, all the same, and the color of your floor is very pretty. Do you suppose it's possible to digitally alter my house so that it looks like someone who occasionally sweeps lives here?


I don't know, but if your house is anything like mine, I think it might take an awful lot of holograms. :)

Sadly -- you know, from the perspective of Science -- I failed to record the number of sunflower seed shell fragments and motes of other types of dirt I touched out of this image. A girl just doesn't have time to sweep all that often when there are extremely adorable monsters to entertain.


Ruby is a little afraid of the broom and the mop. I am only a little less so. It's entertaining, though, when I get them out and deploy them. Lots of barking, lots of stealing items from the dirt pile, then this adorably despairing look as I shovel it all into the trash: "you're not throwing away all that cardboard I ripped up, are you? why? can I have another carton please? How about this pottery barn catalog?"

Librarian Girl

Yikes! Spooky!


Alphabitch, I'm laughing at the idea of Ruby as a sculptress.

Librarian Girl, if you think this is spooky, you should have seen it before I digitally cleaned the floor! Ack! The horror!
