Week in Pictures


Our favorite little place in NE Portland for a quiet lunch a couple miles from our house – Foster & Dobbs, who also has a nice little assortment of meats, cheeses and gourmet foods. Kind of a dream for us to someday run a little place like this…

Meanwhile, back in the garden, our flowers are still going nuts (yay for the arrival of gladiolas, one of my favorites!) and the girls are still as troublesome as ever 🙂

And speaking of trouble, we are still trying to get used to the girl-on-girl action (and sometimes threesome) as Cocoa, the littlest one (aka “Little Napoleon”), asserts herself as leader of the pack, standing on top of then (not pictured) biting Ethel’s neck and, well, dryhumping her. Sigh. Then today Betty decided she would try to stage a coup and make this a strange looking, well, trifecta. Note Blondie in the foreground looking out of place. It’s a dominance thing and some say it’s what happens when there are no drakes around, but dang, I felt like I was intruding. Guess that’s what I get for trying to get y’all some more “cute duck pix” for the blog.

In the meantime, Netflix marathons have been reignited, with Dan & I now obsessively watching The Killing (we’re only on Season 2, so don’t say anything if you watch this!), losing a large portion of Thursday afternoon to it, and as of tonight, I’m spending my solo Friday evening watching Season 3 of Girlfriends Guide to Divorce, which is in any ways is a knockoff of SATC but with a couple of the women being divorced, but it definitely has its moments. I will say though, I have NEVER understood the obsession with stripper heels (sorry I refuse to give them the pretty word “stilettos”, that high of a heel just makes women look silly, not sexy)…


And after taking way too long to finish Brene Brown’s book, I am kicking off this biography as I am embarrassed to say I have SO much to learn about the life of Flo Kennedy and her impact on feminism. And it is seriously reminding me that I’ve got to allow myself to reawaken and get back to one of my goals that got smothered during our 2 1/2 years of TTC. More on that to come soon…
