Joy in pictures


My little guys




Just started my first ever try at brewing (is that the right term) Kombucha.


successful first class today


The four-legged one lost his brother a week ago, but was helping me pick plums the other night. Certainly good for me, hopefully for him too.

Haru high-five!


First fiddling with these markers this evening. Just random intuitive blob doodles. I never know what to draw and don’t really care, but it sure is fun with these markers!

I managed to catch this hero shot of one of the wooflets last week. Her interest is primarily the rabbit warren below, but it was sweet to see her briefly take in the view. Usually the phone-from-pocket time is longer than the dog-pose time and so I was pleased to capture this one.


This made me smile.
