Rabbit pantheon

Seattle, Washington
Saturday, November 22, 2014

As the season for decorating cookies is now upon us, A set out to honor the Rabbit Pantheon with her latest creations. From left to right that would be Nibbles, Nutmeg and Santa Rabbit. And speaking of Santa Rabbit--he is due to arrive in just eight days!

St. Martin's--a few days late

Seattle, Washington
Saturday, November 15, 2014

Armed with lanterns and singing St. Martin's Day songs, we spent the evening wandering the neighborhood with German friends. We were a few days late but no matter. Lanterns from Germany and a homemade version served the purpose equally well...

Danke schön, K!

Frank and I finally got out for bò bảy món at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant--to celebrate Frank's (no longer) new job. Bò bảy món (or Seven Course Beef) is a wonderful Vietnamese dinner consisting of seven beef dishes...

"A bag full of autumn"

Seattle, Washington
Sunday, October 19, 2014

A and I spent the late morning wandering the smaller paths of the Arboretum. She was intent on gathering "a bag full of autumn," which in her case meant interesting leaves and sticks. I concentrated on capturing images of the stuff we couldn't (and shouldn't) bring home.

A taste of Thailand

A lot of this fruit you can't eat...
Seattle, Washington
Thursday, October 16, 2014

A trip to the nearby International District provided a delicious reminder of our time in Thailand: Jack fruit. A wonderful treat in rainy and gray Seattle weather...

Mid-morning rabbit report

Nutmeg: She prefers a cardboard treat
Seattle, Washington
Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Came down to the basement this morning to find Nibbles chewing furiously on the metal bars of her pen--but getting nowhere of course. Nutmeg, on the other hand, was working away at one of the windows on the cardboard "Animal Castle." I cut them some more birch branches and let them get back to their crazy nibbling.
