sad coco

coco is my family’s german short haired pointer, and if you know anything about this breed it’s that they need a lot of exercise. and i mean a lot.

what?

hope you had a nice weekend. this photo really cheered me up, even though it’s monday.

my mom always sends me these forwarded emails, usually of cute animal stories. i couldn’t pass up posting this one (which you may or may not have seen before). i just love it! don’t know where it comes from and who took the pictures but, enjoy.

In Daniel Naudé’s first solo show, he presents a world that appears to be a fairy tale, or a fictional place: We see a donkey with the grace of a race horse. Next to an impossibly beautiful rainbow, a white mule almost turns into a unicorn. The hills and veld that Naudé invites us to traverse are filled with wonderful creatures, each more proud, perfect, and present than the next.

hey, happy new year!

one of my resolutions is to go out and see more stuff – even if it’s just “in my own backyard”, so to speak. there’s so much i haven’t seen that’s probably only in a 10-50km radius of my house, and i don’t want to keep putting things off till i have enough money to go travelling again. why do i need to get on a plane to see stuff, right?

my heart is melting

i have looked at these pics a dozen times, but everytime i come upon them my brain explodes with cheerful cuteness.
