Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Cute, Cute, Unreal, Lovely

Intrepid, the outdoor kitten, has discovered the candle holder by the front door.

Rook and Intrepid are cousins. Rook is delighted to be indoors - can you tell?

We have had some spectacular clouds around here, lately. I want to scoop them up, lick their light, sweet, creamy fluff from my fingers, savor them, roll them around on my tongue. Sometimes, they don't look real - they look like someone must have painted them up there, giant brush placing each one just so.
The sunset was soft, gently, and lovely last night. Silk, satin, peach fading to grey deepening to blue, it was a late summer cloak of light thrown over the shoulders of the world.
I'm at the gallery today - hopefully more focused on my art than I was writing this blog.

You know, you painted quite a lovely picture with those words, Miss.

And, that cat in the catle holder? Way too cute. And, I'm digging the name. Digging it.

Hope the day is arty and grand. Like you.

WomanWisdom, I'm glad you've enjoyed the recipes! I'm sure there are ways to healthy them up...but why? The kittens are adorable, aren't they?

Cinner, thanks - the kittens are always finding ways to amuse...I think it's their way of saying "Thanks for the grub!"

Mizz Holly, you're too kind - thank you. Intrepid earned his name - he's fearless! And cute, too... I hope your day is rich with creative opportunity, ma'am.
