blog about it !

this is the beauty of instant gratification! this is the scene outside my apt/house this evening. i propped the side window open to listen to the action. "i didn't do it! miss agnes! they took my $10 !" and then some of this, something about "car broken into, head bashed". hmmm .... after awhile, i spotted the man that i think lives under the house next door. we exchanged hello's and gossip, and then he disappeared over the fence at the back of the yard. i don't blame him, ... he did not need to get tangled with the 7 cop cars, ems, and fire truck. i do love my neighborHood. really, i do.

tonight's agenda? i was completing my new year's dinner. tonight, i went shopping at target, after yesterday's flop at the mall (maybe because crate & barrel was closed?), and found a great little pot. i needed something between my largest saute pan and my giant 8 qt. stock pot. in this, i cooked my collards. and, they were absolutely yummy! since i am a novice, there's still a big bunch of greens waiting in the fridge. but, that's okay --- collards are hardy, and they can wait a bit for me :)

my fish.
what can i say? the little guys/gals (?) sometimes, just linger there, watching me. and whenever i grab my camera, they swim away and hide! but, they're cute, and still nameless. i've never been very good at naming things/pets. i had a hamster named hammy, a calico kitty named patches, and my fish? big fish, little fish?

i'm glad the holidaze have passed, at least for the most part. i still light my decorations every night, ... and will until next week.

on the twelfth day of christmas, my true love gave to me, a little striped patagonia T

well, maybe not. i guess this is just me "testing" to see if he's found this blog and reads it .... are you there? is this what you meant by "i've read your links" ?

My life was much more "exciting", too, when I lived in apartments and not a whole house in a somewhat quiet neighborhood.

I love your fish pictures! My friend M got a little aquarium setup and bought a feeder fish for 10 cents. She was all prepared for him to die (she named him Mort), but he's doing very well, and has a lot of personality. :)
