I love our kitchen table. It sits in what is probably the closest to the center of our home that anything could get. It is where we play play dough, fold laundry, and work on work on projects. It is where we make and break bread. I love our kitchen table and all of the living we do there- as I wiped it down four or five times today, I became grateful for it, and the life it is witness to.

There are many important issues facing us today. The Republican primaries, Occupy Wall Street, Demi and Ashton splitting. Today, though, I would like to talk to you today about an epic battle you may not know about: Puppies vs. Babies. Specifically, the war to be named cutest.
You know I'm going to side with babies here. Have you seen mine? Even on their stinky, rotten, terrible horrible no good very bad days, they find a way to be cute. Then again, I know some dog mamas that would argue in favor for their four-legged children (some days, even over their children with just two legs). They're furry and sweet. They give you unconditional, slobbering love, and best of all, they don't really talk back at all.
As for me, I'd love to be Switzerland and say that the cutest thing that you'll find is a baby WITH a puppy. Look at Rotten up there with Clyde. Can you tell me that their cuteness doesn't multiply by being next to each other?
Unfortunately, the time to submit photos has come and gone, but you should make your stand in in the Puppies vs. Babies online contest. Tell me, which way would you cast your vote?

Yes, my dog's bed is a futon mattress. It's the only thing big enough and that he can't tear up. well, can't tear up too easily.
The play (and life) has kept us super busy this week, but I've got some more opportunities for compensated posts, so those are coming, just giving a heads up. Next week, I've got Week of Gratitude coming up and other things. Have a great week, drop in for some interesting things to check out, and we'll see you soon!

These lovelies are a pair for my mother, whose feet are almost always as cold as mine. They're a little uneven, but better than the first pair. Rather than being toe-up like the first, though, these were top down, and I really prefer the toe-up technique. So much easier to finish. Anyone else? My next pair will be for me. A really pretty variegated pink and yellow. It's so cheery and bright.
They'll have to wait a while, though. I have so many irons in the fire right now. So many projects that need completing, so little time to do it in, so many ideas with out the time or resources. And that's not even mentioning Christmas or a play that just happens to be opening this weekend. Nonetheless, things are being crossed off the chalkboard and that feels good.
Where are you at, creatively? Too much to do, or too little inspiration?
