“this monitorz so durty, it does not pass inspecshun, u messy human.  i halp you fix it.”

Yesterday I was feeling under the weather, so instead of going to the Yule celebration with the Pagans of the Dale group, I stayed home and relaxed.  Well…..kinda relaxed.

I took some time to get some much needed cleaning in, and ran a few really short, quick errands.  Molly was a firecracker the whole time.  She was so excited that it was cleaning day and probably the new toys and perch helped with her excitement as well.

She was hopping from one place to another, supervising my activities and providing some correction if I was doing it wrong….

“silly human dis is how u clean, ima show u how iz done”

So….thanks to Molly, I now have a clean computer desk, and Molly has a clean cage and some new toys and a fancy new bendable perch 🙂

And the other birds……they just watched with amusement, played with their new toys, and at dinner time they got warm mashed sweet potato with oats, broccoli, kale, veggie pasta, carrots, corn and quinoa.

Kashi with a beak full of sweet potato 🙂

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Went to Thuyen Vien last week for dinner and to put in my order for their holiday feast.  It looks so delicious I can’t wait to try it out.

They have really good vegan cheesecake.

Just got back from the Internet Librarian conference in Monterey.

It was a fun trip!  Got to eat lots of good food, but unfortunately I forgot to take many pictures.  Here’s one of the potato gnocchi I had on the first night I got into town.

It was delicious!

Fun Times With Good Friends

Posted in music on July 24, 2011 by nosferatofu

Took this picture with my good friend, at a rather sad and dark time for the both of us.  We had just lost a friend and we needed to get out and take our mind off things.  I like this picture because it reminds me that even when things aren’t so happy, there can still be good, if bittersweet, memories.

This has nothing to do with the purpose of this blog, aside from the fact that the friend we lost was vegan, but just wanted to make an entry to say that good friends are the best thing in life!

Vegan Ghoulash

Made this a few weeks ago.  Very tasty!  I have made it before and I have made a post about it before, but it was a few years ago so I figured I could get away with sharing it again.

Yup….very good indeed.

Vegan Black Metal Chef

Spring Wellington

For Easter I got the spring Wellington from Native Foods.  It was so good!

I can’t wait for the next holiday to get this!
