Another last minute

Another last minute

Mr. Teatime was named for a character in the Pratchett book Hogfather. Mr. Teatime, when he was a kitten was a tiny little weirdo. All guard hairs and […]

Visible Soul of our house

Visible Soul of our house

I’m very tired, these last few days because of some significant changes I’m making in my life. My C, probably forever and always will be cats. Cats were my friends when I had none. Cats were my parents when my parents were not around. When I couldn’t live for me I lived for them. Now […]

Time for Bed

A is for Ailurophile : The Story of Buzzy the Persian Buffalo

Hello I’m Jyllian and I’m a cataholic–or more properly an Ailurophile. I’ve loved cats for as long as I can remember. I like dogs too, they are nice but cats have always been my favorite animal. They are independent and very much themselves–which makes it meaningful (at least to me) when they love you. We […]

More than a Movie

Came home bummed again. Yes this is a refrain. I’m not sure if it is just needing the break or something more. I think it might be something more. J suggested we go to dinner and see Puss in Boots. We all love the crazy kitty with Antonio Banderas’ voice and it certainly cheered me […]

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me. C. S. Lewis

    So what is YOUR book. Or trilogy or series? Everyone has one. Well, the best people do. I started thinking about mine last night when I showed a teenaged boy I hold dear to my heart*my* book. For a lot of folks I know it was Tolkein. For a lot of other folks […]

Migraine

This is me, posting my webstagram feed because I have a migraine and cannot deal. http://web.stagram.com/n/jyllianm/   Also my small black cat used my neck as a launching pad. I look like I escaped a tentative serial killer.

It is a cart if it goes well, otherwise it is but timber ~Hindi Proverb

  I’ve had my first really ‘feels like I’m finally on break’  day.  Got J and the Bean up but both of them were still so sunburned from their accident on the lake (boat broke down, sunscreen didn’t work) they were tired and couldn’t go to work and GT camp respectively. I got them settled […]

You know everything must change /As time goes by /Though it feels like yesterday/ When we first met ~Voltaire: Anniversary

I wish I wasn’t going to blither, but that may be what you are going to get. I have pneumonia or a really horrible case of bronchitis from the SECOND flu I’ve had this year. I had a horrible cold, 2 flus, a stomach virus and dislocated my ankle. Since August. I wonder if the universe is […]

Talking to hear your head rattle~C.H. Boyd

That’s a quote of my dad’s. I don’t have anything significant to say, that’s what I’m thinking right now, but I’m doing a “just write” what we do in education to get kids to well, just write. I got one kid to write this really cool bit about his dog after writing fart for over […]

Babbage Basement Cat Originally uploaded by jyllianm Just sharing this picture of Babbage our youngest. He is a fierce hunter. Every so often a field mouse gets in and either Babbage or Haru become mighty hunters and slay them mightily. This was the latest victim. I am considering giving up the nablopomo. What I want […]
