The Time that Land Forgot

Or something like that.

between XMas & New Years

December 26th – 31st 2015

I’ve no idea what we’ve been doing.  But here are some clues:













Somewhere in there we had brunch with Pops before he headed back to Minnesota:

Also my mom, Auntie & sister went to the Nutcracker:

My dear Auntie is still in town, though I have hardly seen her, partly because I have been home with this:

Supervised Nap


ClaraJane has been fighting a most-tenacious cold, with her indomitable spirit and awesome powers of SLEEP:

She did rally at one point to make me belated birthday cupcakes in her new silicone baking cups:

H-A-P-P-Y  B-I-R-T-H-D-A.



We even set up a party, but no one came.

Happy No-Man's Land!

Happy Whatever!

(Between doctors appointments and transportation breakdowns my mom and Auntie have been having a rough go.)


In the meantime we’re on PUPPY WATCH, as my sister-in-law’s gorgeous Golden Retriever  -seen here blanketing a matching cat-  does not know she is expecting about TEN PUPPIES!

So it’s New Year’s Eve Day.  We’re doing legos (& blogging) while Daddy & I try to figure out what to do with the rug rats tonight.

I have about one hour before turning into a pumpkin for my First Night gig.

But I have one thought and one wish for the new year:
