UPDATE: I started this post in late April and have since made peace with my rabbit neighbors. ‘Martha’ (a Mom rabbit, distinguishable by an odd ear issue) lives in our yard and there are a variety of baby and teenage bunnies who ramble around eating various grasses and weeds (thank you!) The newly planted rockContinue reading “Rabbit Confessional”
Curious? Well, it has to do with my connection to ‘expat blogger’, who writes Oh My God My Wife is German. In a recent post he wrote about visiting the Portland, OR kitchen store, Kitchen Kaboodle (http://ohgodmywifeisgerman.com/2014/03/10/my-german-wifes-first-encounter-with-kitchen-kaboodle-in-portland-oregon/).

The four-year ritual is upon me, renewal of my Minnesota state driver’s license. I turn a whopping 56 in February (but don’t feel, or act, a day over… well– it’s all relative, I suppose :-)).

With the backyard thermometer reading -20 (Fahrenheit), I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to visit The North Pole – restaurant, that is, in Newport, MN, a few miles outside of St. Paul. Mary North andContinue reading “Breakfast at The North Pole”
My first post on WordPress was October 18, 2012. It didn’t get views, but the second was the first of many photo challenges and introduced me to many of you! Since that time I have tried many themes and ideas, sticking primarily with the notion of developing skills in photography. The cats, Dylan and Bagheera,Continue reading ““About” Page: Revisited”
Frizztext always has wonderful posts…today it was http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2013/03/17/cats-fit-in-boxes/ I just came across old photos of Smathers, the original, beloved cat.
Do the avatars we choose suggest something about us? What if someone interprets an avatar as a negative symbol; in this case a cat’s eye? I just changed my avatar in solidarity with someone who was asked to change theirs… (You will recognize the model from a post I did on Feline Rescue. With theContinue reading “Avatars…and a Poll!”
When one reaches a certain age, some of us like to test the boundaries. For me it meant leaving a structured environment to reacquaint myself with activities about which I felt passion as a teenager and twenty-something: photography and writing. It is now nearly a year since I took the leap and I have stumbledContinue reading “Finding meaningful work”
When I logged on this morning, a neat little message popped up informing me that it was a year ago today that I launched my blog, West Seventh Freelance. Many thanks to all of you who have made the year spectacular!
