On our toes...

Pixie, Pixie, Pixie...she started my day by getting up at 3 a.m. (!) wanting to go out, then she decides that 6 a.m. (on my day off) is a good time to get up and demand breakfast...then she goes out again only to decide that dessert should consist of these...


















they are the parachute seed thingies from maple trees...she thinks they are popcorn and our yard is full of them. Thankfully they aren't toxic, but I am afraid a tree is going to sprout from her tummy :)






































































Mugsy could care less about them, why eat seed pods when you can beg for biscuits!
























Since I was now up at the crack of dawn I put on some music...
























Did some sewing...
























Later on I switched to watching Flight of the Conchords...


















and did some scrapping...






















I even tried my hand at Scrapblog which was super easy and the closest I have come to trying digital scrapping!




All in all, a much more productive day :)

Your pictures brought back some cool memories. I love the picture of your pug with those whirly birds. At least some furry being is enjoying them!

Tom Waits, no? All of the fine artists (back in the day....) practically worshipped that guy! The smell of oil and thinner practically went hand in hand with Mr. Waits.

I was in Retail Ad/Illustration so I was more into the 'progressive' music. Gene Loves Jezebel, The Cure, etc..... The clean shaven dudes with makeup. LOL! Oh my gawd. Okay, well you get the idea.
