Muddy and happy :)

Crisp has a new hobby, she's embracing her feminine side and has taken up airsoft (think paintball but with BB guns) with one of her friends ;)

They went up with a whole gang of friends the other weekend, and Jackie took them back up to the same airsoft area about an hour upstate today and just sent me this picture of them at the end of the day.

While I'm not crazy about the guns, apparently the people who do this are all very friendly, and anything that gets her running about in the fresh air for a full 7 hours can't be all bad ;)


In our continuing effort to brighten up the place, new nursery school signs on the glass doors upstairs and down :)

Walking the dog in my pink pussy hat and listening to the World Service reporting the end of the world as we know it.

We shall overcome.

Pussy hat

Thanks to Dorothée, I now have my very own pink pussy hat to wear in honor of the morally reprehensible scumbag being sworn in as president tomorrow and in support of the women marching on Saturday :)

The Friday Gang

Can I just say (though I'm pretty sure I've said it before) how grateful I am for this little group of friends who gather here every Friday night. They are an odd bunch with myriad different interests, and there are some other members who drift in and out, but the core group comes here after school almost every Friday night to hang, watch YouTube videos, and play video games- though they usually end up playing board games (current favorites are Catan and Betrayal at House on the Hill). I just put some sodas in the little cube fridge and some chips in there for them, and then throw them a pizza later in the evening. They look out for each other, have fun together and we know where they are!

What a great bunch of kids they are :)
