rodent boots

Birds chirp here 24/7, last night especially loud and chit chatty, very much like humans and still at it this morning too while I filled two garbage cans full of weeds. It’s like my morning ritual, after the morning’s packing and shipping is done it’s just me and weeds, slowly and surely 2 garbage cans full a day at least 5 days a week and they should disappear, containment is more like it. And this is just dealing with what’s left after Ritchie and his bobcat took care of most of the yard the other week, leaving me here with just the perimeter, nooks and crannies but of course it feels like a field-full still. Lesson learned, never let the weeds get out of control, the goal is not a forest, evict them immediately.

Indoors for something to munch on, trail chews from my friend’s family’s supermarket, Frazier Farms in Vista are so good. Definitely in the running for best cookie ever; dried coconut, apricot, papaya, cherries, cranberries, almonds, walnuts and pepitas, so good.

A quick look too at Isabel Marant’s F/W 2012 offerings and these 3 dresses, warning ya, don’t look at the pricetag and just imagine yes, please.

The print above is lovely and the dresses below, a nod western.

I also got a package in the mail and dude asks, “what is it?” Box unopened and my immediate reply was, “a box of awesome.” Yah, ya know it! Moving into my new closet has also meant a thorough edit and trades like this one on ebay make it all so sweet. “Trade ya my old stuff for new stuff” and spring cleaning’s far from a chore this season.

kick ass Pierre Hardy leather wedge booties, dead marmot?

or not? As it is a marmot I can fathom it was roadkill…and now on my feet. Never one to think of ever purchasing fur and this feels cruel, conflicted? yes.
