… I’ll be right here.  Well, that’s where I’ve been, anyway.  This summer has been full of packing, driving, border crossings, immigration problems, solo parenting, and a whole lot of waiting.  Doodle, Hoob, the baby and I found ourselves waiting for dad, all of our stuff, and our new place much longer than planned.  Thankfully, we had somewhere pleasant to do our waiting and some good friends to help us wait.

So, now we’re reunited, kind of settled, approaching back to normal, and open for business.

what defines a weed?


Okay, so I know the answer to that question, but I like dandelions and have never understood why people are so desperate to get them out of their lawns. Anyway, I found myself in need of a condolences card this week, and came up with this drawing for it. The giant hedgehog was trying his best to make an appearance, but I told him that I didn’t think he was a particularly consoling figure, despite his benignity. Blowing on a dandelion clock, on the other hand, can pretty much soothe any pain.
