Uh...found my dogs trying to eat kittens this morning. D:

I found a litter of baby kitties. They seem ok for the most part. They are fat and pretty and it looks like their mom was feeding them up till now at least. A little bit of kitty colds but that's to be expected with outside babies. But one is so tiny. It looks very weak and can barely move on it's own. I thought it was dead at first.

I have no idea what to do for these little guys. They are so lovely. Especially the runt.

If anyone is reading this, do you have any suggestions or know of anyone in or around Phoenix AZ looking for baby kitties? Please help!

The other day I got onto the bus and saw a guy wearing a Naruto headband while playing on his laptop. I thought it was seriously awesome! I know most people would laugh, but man you gotta love Naruto to wear a headband in public! If I wasn't so tired and hungry and needing to get home, I probably would have chatted him up more and tried to make friends. Though that usually backfires on me anyway and people end up thinking I'm creepy.

I think I need some more awesomely geeky friends. Looks like I might be in short supply soon.

So all last week was pretty rotten. Nothing seemed to go right and everything I tried to do turned out to be a big mess. Things seem to be going a little better this week but my sleeping schedule is completely off track.

Getting this in hot pink. Wanted white, but it's sold out. Retail therapy lol.

I got the How to Train Your Dragon OST and it's SO gorgeous! I can't even explain how much I love this movie. It's perfectly magical. Invoking such a sense of wonder and adventure.

It doesn't hurt that the dragon looks like my dear little Batface

There are some other things I want to write about.

But first, I want to say that I found that one of the stray baby kittens in the area had died last night. I don't think there is anything I could have done for him, and I know these things happen. But I'm sad. He was just a baby. Anyway, I just had to say this before anything else. And I wanted to say it separately. It just seemed right.

07 Food chatter

I can't sleep. Too stubborn to go to sleep.

And I am feeling sad. Sad like I just bought useless bling on Ebay and sad like I want to make G pancakes just because he's so good to me all the time even if I don't deserve it. I also saw This coconut vegan pancake recipe online yesterday and am curious to try it. "Healthier" pancakes?! I am so down. And I've never thought of using brown rice syrup as just that...syrup!

Not my picture :(

Speaking of cooking, I love this new show on the Cooking Channel called, Indian Made Easy. It really inspires me to make try something new. I love how everything is so simple but and her spices so fresh and exotic. I know I've had a hell of a time finding them myself. I think it will be worth it when I do though. She also did and all vegetarian episode! Makes sense and she usually has one veg option in the episodes I have seen.

And still on the topic of food, last night G and I went to a BBQ at the house of some nice people we met that run a knit/crochet night at our local bookstore. I took curried pasta and veggie salad and they made me the best grilled corn and peppers. I'm STILL full. G ended up having a burger though since he is not always so strict with his food. He smelled like a "meat sewer" the rest of the night. :(

My PC is back...from the dead! Thanks to my friend B! Been without internet for a while. Did a victory dance! Felt good.

So Summer is in full swing. I'm feeling hot blooded and anxious. So many things going on the next few months. So many new projects. But my head is full of soft sun dresses and iced drinks and corny movie dates with friends who just happen to be boys.

Was under the weather this week with tummy troubles. Just taking it easy, crafting in front of the t.v. and day dreaming about redoing my bedroom in a bubblegum circus theme.

Won't be happy until looks like an Angelic Pretty shop. I wonder if I can have it done before my birthday?

New Whale Wars episode tonight!

Oh me oh my. Just popping in with some random venting.

So the Comic Con is this weekend and I am stressin. Am I ready for the con? Do I even have a choice? Will they like our panels? I'm also in a major rut. A food rut. I've been busy with the convention and I haven't been eating well. It's my fault, and I haven't been getting enough sleep. When I don't sleep and am too lazy to cook for myself, then those vegan cookies (or even worse) start sounding like a great idea for breakfast...and lunch. And I admit it, I am worried about what I am going to eat at the con, stuck for hours working, with no hotel room and limited money down town with very few veg friendly options within walking distance. I'm afraid I'll be eating nothing but tap water, coffee, and potato chips. ;-;


Seems like a silly thing to worry about, but I'd hate to get sick. Also, I've gained back some weight and I am SICK of it! I need to be better about planning out my meals. Especially dinner. I feel like I never know what to make that will please everyone in my household.

What do other people eat for dinner? I am always fascinated by this. Maybe I'll have to start peeking into windows around dinner time in my neighborhood.

Also, it's probably terribly hypocritical of me, but some friends of mine and I have been toying with taking a small weekend trip to L.A. soon for shopping and what not. If we go...I am totally making a trip to KindKreme Dessert Shop while we are there! ♥ Yum yum.

Anyway, hopefully everything goes well this weekend. And maybe, just maybe, if I'm super lucky...I'll run into James Marsters in a lonely elevator. Rwwrrrr! XD

I am overwhelmed. I guess that's why I am putting off cleaning the bathroom this afternoon to sit down and write something. Life feels like it has been coming at me extra fast the past few weeks and I have admittedly been spreading myself way too thin. But it hasn't been all bad...just chaotic. Both with my emotions and environment.

There's actually been some pretty cool stuff. Like our itty bitty bake sale a couple of weekends ago we held to participate in the World Wide Vegan Bake Sale.

Our Happy Bake Sale sign! ♥

It was SO much fun...and so much work. I learned a lot in the process, met some very awesome people, ate yummy things, made some money for shelter animals, and can't wait for next year! I am actually really bummed I wasn't able to make it to any of the other local bake sales.

Also getting ready for the local Comic Con and our panels. Tending to my itty bitty garden, which now includes a thriving yellow squash bush, 3 different heirloom tomato plants, and some broccoli that doesn't know if it's broccoli or not. Learning to crochet. Trying to available for everyone at all times so no one feels left out. Puppy tending. Cleaning EVERYTHING, then cleaning it again because the puppies messed it up. Ect, ect, ect. I have so much to do and I am really feeling the pressure. I would really like to run away or something. Although, last night we went to Macayo's for Mexican food. And even though it took them a couple of tries getting my dish right and having to get it remade and some English/Spanish translating I was able to go out for dinner and had an amazingly delicious meal. Which means I DIDN'T have to cook! No cooking! I just got to sit there, and wait., almost as good right?

Anyway, back to house work I guess.

Puppies: Blacky, Honeybear, Donut

This is the cause of the mojority of the mess. They look so sweet and innocnet here. Hiding their naughtiness. Especially Honeybear.

03 Chocolate pt1

I made raw chocolate covered "cookie dough" balls with cashews, and raw cacoa nibs.


No, I'm not proud of myself but DAMN! Those were delicious!

Sigh...this is why I should not be left alone when I am sad.

02 Spring thinking

It's Spring. It's bright out side and a little too hot in the afternoon, but what do you expect. My plants are tall and happy and I turned up my very first bit of earth the other day to plant inground. I'm contimplating seeds and tomatoes and sage. I'll admit, I very much like playing farmer. Though I don't think many of the people around me understand. It's a little lonely.

Been very busy. So many things to do. Let's hope it all works out. My friend G and I have been prepping for the bake sale we're holding for the World Wide Vegan Bake Sale. Things are coming a long but I'm a bit nervous.

G Recipe testing.

But yeah. Busy. Animals and plants to tend to, house chores, projects left waiting to be finished. Probabaly should not be playing online. ;)

First post. I am not sure what to say. I am sure no matter I say it will never be nearly as witty as I think it should be. So then, what's left for me to say?

I am sleepy. Spring time calls for naps with open widows and tea and soft cakes. All of which have been a part of my today. I'm day-dreaming of being a farmer or an Indian maiden stading in tall grass in an open sunny plane.

So many things are changing, but I suppose that's the nature of things and Spring time marks a time to ebrace them. Prickly and thorny, and rough to the touch though they may be.

So here goes nuthin.
