Late posting this. We got a puppy yesterday (as you guys already know thanks to my exuberant FB posts). This is part of the rope chew toy Nevan picked out for him. And yes, I've since realized you're not supposed to put soft bedding in the crate while training. Poor Fuji, he just wants a soft place to lay down.

I used to write my name or draw pictures in the blank pages in all my books. Of the few books remaining, this was one of my favorites - "Stand Back," Said The Elephant, "I'm Going To Sneeze". It's now Nevan's. It makes me smile when I see it, and so I encourage Nevan to do the same in his books as well :)
I try to keep it simple. An amulet I picked up in Thailand to keep me safe (no, I don't really believe in amulets, but that doesn't mean I can't give it a try!), a Mongolian brass bell to bring me good luck (from my SIL, as she lived there for a while), and a Hello Kitty to make me smile.

I am not a breakfast person as in I don't normally have much of an appetite in the morning... however, I love breakfast foods. This morning I decided to have breakfast for the sake of our photo challenge. I seriously need to go grocery shopping, so Nevan and I had some strawberries, sourdough toast with red currant jelly, and my usual cup of PG Tips with milk and raw sugar. All foods that make me feel good, physically and emotionally.
Real sourdough, something that is rare even in SoCal (ex: my friend's parents in Santa Barbara even have him ship them the real stuff every so often out of sheer homesickness for it), is one of the few foods I miss intensely whenever I'm not home, and is one of the best breads in the world (and the most annoying to make).
