Picture #1: Merlin, indulging in his favorite activity: watching birds out of the window.
Picture #2: Chartreux cat that I found on the web.
Now, Merlin was a homeless, stray kitten found near the lake in Vermont when I took him home, but wow, he bears an uncanny resemblance to the rare-French breed cat called the Chartreux.
My family hears me say this often and they like to tell me he’s NOT really a Chartreux, and NOT that it really matters, but the above photos that I recently found look like the same cat. Merlin is also large and powerful (but with short legs). Affectionate and a good traveler, he stays mostly silent. He rarely meows and will only silently purr when pleased. Just.like.the.Chartreux.
I’ve browsing street art murals lately because of our big mural project at work (which JUST finished!) Our mural is quite long, but here’s a tiny pano at the moment. It’s been raining too much these past few days to get some good finished photos.
Anywho, here’s some of my favorites street art murals from around the world that I’ve browsed this week. These artists must have awesome arm muscles…..just sayin’.
New York City, NY
Woodstock, South Africa

Errrrr….a snowy/icy walk on my way to Penny Cluse Cafe for a “work” breakfast yesterday morning.
A quick breakfast before yoga this morning – Ojai Pixies and a Balance Bar. It’s Ojai Pixie time at City Market, a short but sweet citrus spree for me. I eat like 8 of these a day for as long as I can! Teeny tiny but super juicy and sweet. If you see them at your store, TRY THEM!
I was down at Mindi & Tom’s this weekend and they recently bought a new toy: a Blendtec blender. Our morning green smoothies included about ten ingredients that my blender could never pulverize. OMG. Blender envy.
