Haiku

8 Sep

lovelies, a sudden burst of creativity just hit me, and i’m sharing the fruits of my mind with you.
here is a haiku of what is going on right now:

The cats stare at me
In my hands Harry potter
Cat stomachs rumble

Reading Potter book
Emptied suitcase on my bed
I hate unpacking

Fear of tan fading
Autumn is upon us now
Where has summer gone

hope you enjoyed it :)

hiatus over

23 Oct

lovelies- my hiatus is done.

i promise.

this past month, i’ve been absent from the blogosphere because of… well, life actually.
i’ve had friends visiting, work keeping me busy and uninspired, general writer’s block, books i’ve been reading, and been hanging out with friends. all activities that had me invest my time, leaving no room for sitting at the computer.

don’t think that i haven’t been thinking of you though! oh no. i’ve been diligently taking pictures, baking and cooking, so that i can show you what i’ve been up to this past month.

stay tuned for the next posts, in the meantime, here’s a picture of yuki at dinner last night. he’s fancy like that.

27 Jun

hemingway and shakespeare, the two very entertaining kitties who author the blog twocatsviews, nominated me and my little blog for the very inspiring blogger award!
