My ride...

A while back, someone who reads this blog asked me to post photos of my bike. I actually think one of my first posts had a few (much better than this crappy cellphone shot), but here she is this morning. That's my "parking spot" at work.

Two of the kittens have eye infections. Getting eye meds into those tiny little squirmy faces is so hard! Mom is also on to me: she's on oral antibiotics and was twice as hard to medicate this morning than yesterday. I feel this does not bode well.

Ok, work. Photos from my camera in the next two days.

Where'd you go? Oh, there you are...

Niiiice! Car & scenes from my daily commute.

Sweet wheels outside work this morning. Not as sweet as my bike, but still...

Had a wonderful ride in today, despite having to bike down Chesnut into Center City. (That road is scary to ride. No bike lanes for part and drivers go 50mph. )

Final exam tonight, then... Hopefully my anxiety level will go down. I don't even know why I'm anxious about this, I guess just because it'a looming.

Hoping to plan an evening bike ride with Lou one night this week or this weekend. I had fun last weekend, despite the fact that we were in over our heads a bit. I felt better. I even went for a jog last night!

Cutest thing ever: L giggling in her sleep last night. Sigh.
I'm going to try to use my real camera and put up a real post soon, but cellphone posts are all I've got right now.

Love affair, hostas gone wild.

Lemmy loves Bart, & our shade garden is exploding.

Kittens and other things.


Kitten pile.

Yeah. THAT happened last week. And we refinanced our house. And our roommates are moving out next weekend.

Lots going on.

So a few weeks ago, we had several days of rain in a row. I'm running around before work visiting kitties, and I get a phone call. Yet another cat has seen the giant "sucker" sign L wears and has begun to follow her down the street. A pregnant tortishell cat with extra toes. Sort of like our dream cat, really.


Skip to last Tuesday, when she has five kittens in our spare room. Unbearable cuteness.

So that's the cat situation. We've got five kittens on our second floor. Eight days old today. Severe cuteness overload.

We refinanced our house and locked in at a ridiculously low rate. That happened Monday, after some frustrating holdups brought on by the bank. It was a cause of stress for a while, but it's over now, and we're thrilled to save that money every month, especially since the roomies will be leaving so soon.

Brewing obsession continues. Have a pale ale in bottles for next weekend and a stout in the fermenter for... well, a few months from now, probably.

I was really excited to find a stout in this cool flip-top bottle.

So, life's been a little busy lately. Stress, tiny miracles, lots of rain (which makes for happy plants but cranky people). That about sums it up for now.

A real blog will follow shortly...

But I am alive. I've just been busy. All about that and some photos at lunchtime!
