Enjoy Your Bike Ride

My cousin Pam sent us a really cute thank you card that her sister Rachael made as a holiday present. I guess Cadin and I weren’t the only ones celebrating a consumer free X’mas. The problem with handmade gifts (at least for me) is that some of my presents (even the one for my boss!) ended up being delivered ~3 months late :( Cadin made a cute kitty game for me and some ready made gluten-free mixes (cornmeal pancakes, pumpkin cookies and buttermilk waffles!); I made a scrapbook of our trip to Hawaii in 2006 and a book of creations, ‘LIVE ANIMALS,’ that we are passing back and forth. The book exchange was a popular idea this year; my mom and I are doing one and Cadin and his dad and Cadin and Carrie, too.

(I can’t find the photos I’ve taken of the book exchange so far, but I’ll post an update with images sometime in the future.)

The Watchmen

“For you are life, rarer than a quark and unpredictable beyond the dreams of Heisenberg; the clay in which the forces that shape all things leave their fingerprints most clearly.”

  • Dr. Manhattan, The Watchmen

i recently reread this book. i had it in high school and loved it, but i bought it recently for Cadin and wanted to read it again. reading this quote reminded me of how deeply my teen-aged self was affected by the comic. it was a strange feeling of déjà vu.

One of the four tigers in this cage had a bum paw. When he went in the pool to get away from the bugs and the heat, he kept his paw above the water.
