Okay, a little bit more and then no Starbark for a day, okay?

Haha, I really only have doggie pickies on my blog lately, don't I?? ... :P

Would you look at those ridiculous ears??

Puhdiest dawgi evah!...  (Though occasionally a bit on the 'psycho eyes!' side....  :p)

... rushy update...

Days have been whacky, preparations for the festive season in full swing. I am a day away from finishing the commissioned portraits - and a day or so away from knitting my first cap for Cupcake. It is so cute to see a man as brave as a giant grin alarmingly when I ask: "You'll wear it ALL the time when outside, won't you, honey buns?" :D Imagine the General putting the cap on and then sprinting like an arrow to the car in the hope no-one sees him. But seriously. I can knit now!!!!

My X-mas wish for this year were the good old-fashioned wooden sleds... The kind you can go on a pilgrimage with, with the dog sitting on top of it and a full backpack of hot spicy tea and cookies and the camera :)) And that's just BEFORE you get to any slopes!! :D can't wait. It should be any day now and we traditionally tend to buy things for one-another sooner and then just wrap up the boxes they came in :))

We have had two glorious days of snow. Okay, we also had a couple of really ridiculously tragic deaths in relation to the weather (one of the nastiest chain-crashes ever), but finally the days are uiber pretty. I'll post some doggie pictures, just to prove my point. 

I am waiting for the payday to go shopping for my friends - I approximately know what I will give each, but more importantly, I am trying to conjure the concept of 'surprice pouches' for the fair.... two weeks left until D day! Yeesh. When viewed individually, all the things I need to do don't seem like much, but when you consider they are all in this lifetime... Today I should probably  make some doggie-school photos and have them developed, then finish the painting, then join the General when he goes to the doctor's, then get the sled from parent's house and pick up the developed photos and go to the finishing party of doggie school..... And then take the sled back up tomorrow, when I have to help mum decorate and bake, then slide back down and finish knitting the cap and start knitting the book markers..... Then coffee with friends, some small business deals and then listing down the inventory of the cards... Then pick up the paintings from the frame shop.......

Ugh. See? No wonder we keep having sex at 3:3o AM lately - there's no time during the day!!

PS  Exactly one week left till expansion.
PPS  I think before my year is over (The janus is on the 11th of March for me..), I will set up another book. I'm thinking Slovenian, short stories... Even if it doesn't get printed due to shortage of coin... maybe coin will come and then my stuff will be ready for other stuff to get worked on.. Isn't that, like, almost a plan? :P

Lyrek Buckies' kindergarten graduation day :))
*Pride* Glow *Pride*

Mum and Starbark

Trains - inventing how to move them is one thing, inventing how to STOP them is a different matter altogether..

Watched Unstoppable for breakfast. If Tony Scott continues to make these kind of movies, what with the hippidy hop camera, super rough zooming in an out and uncofortable 'handheld' effect, shooting something larger-than life and out of control, casting Denzel Washington and some delightfully agreeable semi colored actresses (Deja Vu... <sic>), I'll continue watching. :)) Plus this one has Kevin Corrigan ;)
An interesting quote on one of the larger (commemorative) headstones on the cemetery - that of a spiritualists and medium Jane Roberts: We create our own Reality.

Another fucking funeral... What the fuck is going on?! Can't anybody do anything about this messed up 'here one minute, gone the next'??!!

Took one peek at the latest WoW patch and insta bought a half-year subscription. Spent four hours exploring, in awe of all the water.. and details.
What does that tell you about my passion for alternative universes? :PPP

Crazy dawgies :D

Mud, anyone? :P
 There's just no way to get these to be still for a 250th of a second :P
 Schooling, eh? :))

The communal hunt

A wonderful Sunday pastime - hurried, nasty, muddy trek uphill through shrubbery in the rain, making stupid sounds that are supposed to be loud but not barking :P Hunters: about ten, the noise-makers, about ten. Six dogs. Great doggies :D Catch: 0. I am VERY good at my jinxes :P

Second batch (more of the X-mas pickies...)

The X-mass shoot

Although greatly saddened by the news of a passing of a very very fine lady indeed, a watercolor artist and someone you would often see in the street, making her way bravely, despite old age - a mind also as clear as  mountain water - and always a pleasure to talk to... (That's why I am so burdened by the news, probably, because the last time I saw her in the street I could have say hi to her, but I instead chose to continue on my errands and she didn't see me. Now I will never get the chance to chat with her again, and she was so cool.......)
I shall imagine her as if she's in a dream, as young as she wanted to be again, standing before a fresh canvas, too new brushes in her hands, still naive and zealous and shy.. It helps me to believe she is in love with the smell of paint :))
Anyways, I heard about it while on a good exhibition of it's own, one by Franc Vozelj. I even remembered his name - I was THAT impressed....
