My agent wants a second book, he assures me that he'll sell this one. He better, because I bought a $95 rug from Target. We're not all fancy New Yorkers, Peter. WE'RE NOT.

So, it looks like this Winter will look just like last Winter... Except, I had the kids drag the trunk down from the attic for a coffee table.

Oh, the cats? Never mind those. This place is crawling with them.

Fine, here's this year's Christmas tree.

Where can a person do all of their Christmas (AND CHANUKAH) shopping?? 

Amazon? 

Shut your mouth.

Let me be more specific. LET ME.

Where can a person do all of their Christmas (AND CHANUKAH) shopping for amazing hand-made gifts while laughing with friends and/or family, eating ethnically diverse foods, AND SEE FRAN AND JEN??

THE NO COAST CRAFT-O-RAMA!!

Omg... that's TOMORROW! Oh, THAT'S what Jen has been talking about! And THAT'S what these boxes are for!

 

See you there!

XO!

Last night, I dreamt I took a day trip to Manitoba. Just an afternoon of pool-swimming at an area motel. I came home and bragged to everyone, "I went to Manitohhhba today."

Two observations:

1) No wall-less public toilet in this dream?? That's right. Who's in charge now, Dreams??

2) My dreams have finally taken me to Canada...

AND ANOTHER THING: Winter came completely out of nowhere this year. One week it was 71°, and the next week, I had to break out the Smartwool. "Oh, Minnesota! You are so crazy! Potholes and moquitoes and icehouses!"

Shut up.

And maybe a pregnant cat.

Don't say anything. JUST DON'T. Tib might have snuck out the window like some sort of wild teenager. We'll know as soon as we catch her in the kitchen with a tub of Ben & Jerry's.

In other (less controversial) news from the Zeichen Press Headquarters: The new cards are all printed and in the shop! Wanna see?

Don't you hate looking at photographs when you're not in them?

Me too!

Oh, and I made this for my gals.

Farewell my Wintertime Prison... Springtime is the amnesty hors d'oeuvre and reminds all (in these Northern climates) of the duality of nature.

See the flattened squirrel on the bike path? (Why is it SO flat on a bike path? WHY??)

And see the lilacs in full bloom? (DO YOU??!! Face-meltingly beautiful...)

Hmm, people also think about baseball in the Spring? Right? How about a congratulations card for the bros?

Jen's back!

Thank God.

She said she "missed ZP soooo much!"

ZP missed her too! To show her just how much, this rabbit (mascot) sacrificed and froze himself to the ground right in front of the gate she walks through to enter the ZP Headquarters.

ALSO, I wrote/designed a new cover for my book... Kara is busily drawing pictures while I bark directions at her. I'm sure she's already made a voodoo doll of me.

I don't blame her a bit.
