bathe Spot--done

go to Saturday market--done

check on different schools for M--done

bird walk in Juanita park--1/2 done (I stayed for 2 of the 4 hours--will stay longer next time)(willow flycatcher, osprey. gadwall ducklings, downy woodpecker, charming birders)

closet organization--not done

slumber party with M--done (popcorn, viewing of Ratatouille on portable DVD while cuddled up eating popcorn, chocolate ice cream--great party, lousy spare bed)

zoo--done

knitting--not done, but ready for Dish Rag Tag box to arrive

here are some random photos; the squirrel is for you, Barb.

we tasted it and it was good.

see how it's a monkey?

see the darling froggie?
tee-tiny bug in a lacy cocoon in my kitchen sink.
we relocated him.
see Barb, there's food for all, even
if you have to hang upside-down by your toes to get at it.

no, this did not come out of the lacy cocoon.
I'll try to post some knitting/making photos soon. Anyone still out there?
