Extraneous Adorable Dog Picture

Koko at her perkiest! I must have had food. I love how her collar looks like it matches the wall. This was taken with my new cell phone. It's a pretty good picture and it's got this great pixilation and technicolor.

Yes, but no ham.

These were my breakfast eggs. The one on the left was much greener than it seems here.
I was invited out to lunch at my friend, and fellow Portland Saturday Market vendor, Jayne's house. Well, actually I was returning the tile saw she and husband Mario blessedly loaned to me for my work in the bathroom. The saw saved hours of time and a whole lot of my sanity. So I was bringing the wonderful tool back. Jayne's place is out on a piece of family land and they have a very large chicken coop and 13 lovely Spice Girls (all the chickens are named after a spice). When I was leaving after our delicious lunch, I was presented with a half dozen fresh eggs. I didn't look at them until this morning when I went to make my breakfast. They are absolutely lovely eggs. Huge and lovely. I had to take pictures, fascinated by something so everyday striking me as so beautiful. One of the eggs I had this morning was a stunning moss green. Alas, being vegetarian, I had no ham with my green egg.

Wonderful Press! (I think...)

I recently made a Simple Spinner Ring for a nice customer in The Netherlands. She was very happy with it and took to her blog to exalt her new ring. At least that's what I think it says. My Dutch is rusty, so she assured me it's all good. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone is so excited by their new jewelry that they want to tell everyone about it. Thanks Nicole!

Curious as to what some of the comments to the post were, I took to my computer's translation function. I have only now stopped laughing long enough to make this post. I can't read this translation without wetting myself:
"Groovy! I have last at the world shop stand hesitate. But that is frequently large half-measures, I zoek more as an inch ring correctly simply ringvinger-ring.!"
I think this explains a lot of what goes wrong with foreign policy.
