Fancy & Beautiful Vegan Japanese Dinner!

A family friend took us to Kajitsu to celebrate her daughter's acceptance to Cooper Union and to thank us for our help in raising her the past ten years. It was beautiful and yummy. And I got to reminisce about my tutoring days and going to parent teacher conferences.

We all need cutie eye masks

I helped put together a new show in Tokyo at Lamp called (rough translation) "How to Enjoy the Five Minutes Before You Fall Asleep" by Chie Fukao. There are a few things she has been obsessed by over the years and sleep/bed is one of them. We are having workshops for participants to make these kitty eye masks with the artist. Wish I could teleport to Tokyo just for that afternoon.

Feels like summer

Crazy warmth huh? We are enjoying it but wondering what it means for the coming gardening season. Is it going to continue to be a warm year or will it end up like last year where we had a cold and wet summer. (Hope not!)

Today I harvested over-wintered collard greens. Just enough to have a few mouths full of them saut├ęd with garlic. Yum.

Introducing TEEN!

This is Teen our new foster cat. She is about 5 and a half months old and so far a healthy little one. Her blood work & fecal came back negative so next is getting her shots and getting her spayed! Then she will be ready for adoption - so keep her in mind!

She is irresistibly adorable. Looks like a little squirrel, tiny head and big bushy tail.

She currently resides in our turtle room and I have been letting her out of her crate many times a day to run around but I have to keep an eye on her or she jumps up on to the ledge of Ichigo's tank. I don't want her to fall in or take a swipe at Ichi. Little rascal.
We are currently accepting small donations to pay for her vet care. (Paypal button on the top right.) If you are in any position to donate we would be grateful. If not, send her your good vibes so she gets adopted quickly!
