Turns out, Pippi Longstocking inspires the strangest people. For January, I’ve been staying and helping out in a small farm in Ontario, Canada that looks like Pippi was at the very least involved with the building of it. The owner and his tenants could definitely be the “Where Are They Now?” of the stories from […]
Yeah, I’m busy on Facebook liking every single positive mention of marriage equality in my state. My whole timeline is one big victory lap from everyone I know who has hoped for this moment.
Sometimes, dogs are just weird. You get all geared up to do something you know they’ll love, and they’re completely freaked out. As much as they love novelty, they also have strong ideas about what’s acceptable, and sometimes it makes sense only to them.
Sometimes I can’t shut my mind off.
I have come to the realization that I may be slightly, and by slightly I mean incredibly, over-anxious when it comes to my animals. As such, I can be pretty judgmental when it comes to the behavior of other pet owners. I try to stay as open-minded as possible when it comes to other people’s […]
The weather is finally nice here in NY, so we’re planning our first zoo trip of the year!
Personally, I know which of those I’d rather be in the middle of, but a glance at my backyard shows that I’m stuck with the crows. Why on earth did we have to decide on “murder” for a group of birds that are kinda creepy and smart as all hell to boot? “Flock” is a […]
Hello, my sparkling lovelies. I think Pinterest would like to help brighten your day, so let us take a look at some funny things I’ve seen floating about the place this week.
I am a hippy, dippy, long skirt and Birkenstock wearing, soap making, farmer’s market shopping, non-profit working, dyed in the wool, bleeding heart liberal. I also love to shop. And I love to eat. And I enjoy my cushy life. But, do I enjoy my cushy life to the detriment of others?
As much as anything, this article has come into being because my writing companion is currently stretched out beside me in his bed. A dog bed, no less. And the aforementioned companion happens to be of the feline persuasion. He also has a pillow in there, but the less said about that, the better. He’s […]
My husband could not wait until I was done reading this book. For one thing, I couldn’t read it in bed while he was trying to sleep because my laughing would shake the whole mattress, followed by me going, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” and then cracking up all over again. When I read it in […]
Hello, dearies, and welcome back to Ladyblogs You Should Be Reading, a breakdown of some of the best run ladyblogs on the Internet. I’m taking it a bit easy this week, because let’s face it, it’s August and my brain has turned into a massive cherry slushie. That doesn’t mean our favorite blogs will be […]
Happy Friday to you all! I hope everyone has some good things in store for their weekends.
Today’s LTP is an easy one (or a hard one if it’s tough for you to make a choice): What is your favorite animal? And a bonus supplemental question: If you could domesticate and keep any wild animal – assuming that it wouldn’t be cruel to take it out of the wild – what would […]
I feel kind of nerdy saying it, but this is one of my favorite trivia games. Below are adjectives based on animal family names. What animals are we referring to when we say:
