Bye Bye Baby

Welcome to the last Tower Tuesday of 2014!

This could very well be the last Tower Tuesday ever. I have feelings about the sustainability and general structure of Extra Super Fantastic. Feelings are good, but they can also make things happen. THINGS. Am I alluding to something? Perhaps. I guess we will find out! At some point!

We Are Family

The family that eats fro-yo together has a happy dog together.

Fool For Your Loving

Now THIS is how you spend a no-school day during a mega storm!

Kudos to you, husband and son. Kudos.

It's A Small World (After All)

Throwback Thursday: Disney World, January 2006. One of the last business trips I did with PlanningShop; I flew from Dublin, Ireland to Orlando for an entrepreneurship educators conference. The jet lag and the strange familiarity of being back state side contributed to my desire to just stand there and stare at Spaceship Earth at Epcot. And take lots and lots and lots of pictures. Like this one!

BTW, there were no hella storms or super storms or mega storms or STORMS OF THE DECADE at the time. The only storm was the storm of awesome and cotton candy that engulfed my very soul. Just sayin'.

A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

Well, apparently the STORM OF THE DECADE is fast approaching. By this time tomorrow, those of us who haven't moved onto arks and kayaks will have to transform into mer-people. Which makes me feel the following things:

1. Happy we live on (near) the top of a big hill.

2. Compelled to stock up on Duraflame logs, hot cocoa mix, and mini marshmallows.

3. Suspicious of the gargantuan eucalyptus tree in the backyard and it's intentions.

4. Totally ready for a trip to somewhere beachy and all-inclusive!

You Won't See Me

Turkey Sandwich is a dog who has lived her 3 1/2 year life in a draught. So when it was time for her to go outside at 6:30 this morning and pee, she wasn't having a single bit of it. She looked at the rain. She looked at me. "No, thank you. What sort of animal pees in the rain?" YOU, TURKEY SANDWICH. A DOG PEES IN THE RAIN. I do not believe she was convinced.

So happy Tower Tuesday, stay dry, and don't let your dog be in charge in matters of when/where/whether or not to pee.

Peek-a-boo! Here I am!

The Final Countdown

Yeah, yeah, yeah--it's December already, how did the year go by so fast, what's with all this rain--I get it.

Thanksgiving was yummy and sleepy, and the rest of the long weekend was wet and muddy. In a good way! For example, Sunday at Siempre Verde in Pescadero! Wow, that is one seriously mud-filled place.

Lot's of time to run, chase and swing:

The recovery period was pretty damn cute as well:

If you're looking for Tower Monday (and who's not looking for that, am I right?!), it has been re-branded and will be re-released tomorrow as Tower Tuesday. Because duh.
