A little peek of some recent goings-on around here via my Instagram thing.
Kisses till later, boos.
We decided on a name! The name is annoyingly ridiculous! Apologies in advance! Ok, so what is it?
Bea Arthur ‘Featherfoot’ Beepers
Yeah, well, we mainly call her ‘Bea’ for expediency or ‘Beepers’ when she squeaks or howls. Occasionally we’ll throw out a ‘Featherfoot’ when shes acting like a creepy hippie. She’s spayed, fully vaccinated, flea free and generally incredibly amazing, but we are now officially crazy dog herding people. For reals.
It’s Friday, otherwise know as the official round up day of the internet, so here’s a little peak at some of the stuff I’ve been rounding up on the old Craigslist.
Of course, I’m a compulsive CL scavenger and save an insane amount of listings while sending a ridiculous amount of pointless email inquires considering that I rarely buy. I mean, really it’s like 5% of the time that everything works out and I find something I want at a good price, drive out and grab it and then somehow don’t get murdered. Anyways, it takes a delicate combination of price, ease, need and willpower for me to follow through and meet up with a stranger to buy their old unwanted crap.
CL is a pain. Mostly. But I just can’t stop chasing that dragon.
Above are a few samples from the past month of my saved CL posts – which total out to be seven things I’m watching and one thing I’m buying. But those are cute things dummy! Why not buy everything?! Well, some are overpriced, some are basically inconvenient, some sellers are unreachable and a special few are constantly reposted because the seller is cray-cray.
Which one made the cut?
Hint hint, it’s not that Lafer sofa and it’s bigger than Bea. Stay tuned? Hopefully it will be in the house? if everything works out?
Have a sweet ass weekend.
Things have been quiet around the house due to some traveling and a few projects I’ve been focused on. Funny how preoccupation combined with 106 degree temperatures will suck all the fun and focus out of home improvement.
Laure and I recently headed out to Crested Butte to photograph Keith and Alissa’s wedding. While secluded in the mountains, I shot more photos, ate more ice cream and hollered at more cows than should be reasonably allowed. So yup, great mountain wedding times were had all around.
Really though, the biggest focus-sucking development has been the unexpected addition of this little fur puff of a dog to the house.
We weren’t looking for another dog. We didn’t want another dog. We were happy with our current small dog quota…and then this little feather footed vagabond of a pup needed help and a home and deployed her manipulative powers of adorableness to squeeze into my goddamn heart.
She is seven months old and weighs a whopping 3 pounds. She has no name, zero house training, zero vet care and is extremely shy. Oh, and she is in heat. Big time.
Things have been interesting.
So, yes, we are all adjusting to a new routine in which she is a tiny clueless menace, Iggy is either ambivalent or terrified of her and Bowie is desperately obsessed. Mostly though, she’s a hilarious puff of a weirdo who really needs a name already.
