My Writing, Elsewhere…

    Thanks Nicole as always for the links that are different from other round-ups I get to on Fridays. The good dog reminded me that you had cat(s) and a dog too? I think they are rarely featured. I wonder how you pet proof your home, especially the new one with all the beautiful original features. I know I get anxious with cat hair on the linen, I can’t imagine if you have dark velvet what it would be like!

      Yep, I don’t write about them often, but we have a dog and a couple of cats! We don’t do much in the way of pet proofing, aside from picking finishes and fabrics that will stand up well in the first place. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to deal with cat fur on velvet either!

    As a suburbanite, I pine for that Blue Line extension…

      I would love for that potential lime line to come about.
