I went to Treehouse to make kokedama! most of my photos did not come out, so here are the best ones.
Kokedama moss balls are very easy to make. We used a mixture of red clay and potting soil, then we added the moss. We added a small succulent and last wrapped it in nylon string and added string to hang them up!
I got on a roll and made a bunch of mini kokedama.
Then I placed them in our kitchen!
I can't wait to make more kokedama!

Here is the funniest picture of all three of my pets together! I love this photo for so many reasons - look at Oreo and her pose! It makes me laugh so hard! Nilla is there and Jumbles is behind her, hanging out in his pan. They just all look so cute.
Our pets have been great, for the most part. Back in November our bunny, Jumbles, was diagnosed with a parasite. It is a terrible thing that rabbits can get this, but we caught it early and treated this. So we have been to the vet school so many times since November. I also hesitate to write about this, because the buns are doing really really good, but if you notice he is separated from Oreo in this photo. Poor Jum has been on and off medicine since November. In March he had a minor surgery, and his blood test levels were high for the parasite, so he has been on the treatment ever since. He will finally finish May 31! I am counting down the days!
Oreo was sick about two weeks ago, and now she is back to "herself." Rabbits are such different pets than a cat. So different - and we have learned lots since finding Oreo in 2009. I am happy to report she is doing great and is happy and healthy!
And for our cat Nilla, she is totally good and happy and healthy! Go Pets! this is where I sound like a crazy pet lady, but I love my pets so much. It is like Nacho Libre when he says "the children, they are my heart" about the orphans he cares for. I feel the same way - "the pets, they are my heart."

Last weekend, Missy and I headed out to HIGH MUSEUM OF ART in Atlanta for ADIOS FRIDA & DIEGO, the big 31-hour long party extravaganza that served as the "closing ceremony" to the FRIDA KAHLO and DIEGO RIVERA exhibition. Of all the events scheduled for the celebration, the one that I was really pumped for was LUCHA LIBRE, or mexican-style wrestling. When we arrived, it had stopped raining and workers were busy drying off the ring...
Before long, the masked LUCHADORES took to the ring and it was ON. The action was fast and furious. We were pretty close to the ring, and every time one of the wrestlers would hit the mat, they would hit it LOUD, sending a shock wave through your core...
Best shot of the night. It reminded me of that scene in NACHO LIBRE, when Jack Black leapt off the ropes and soared like an eagle:
The best move of the night was also the one that closed out the match - one wrestler did a flip off the top of the ropes, landing on his opponent with a mighty THUD. Afterwards, Missy had her picture taken with the losing LUCHADOR (because he had the better looking mask):

Just wanted to wish my Mother a very HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! I swiped the photo above from my sister Cynthia's Facebook page. I wish I could be with the rest of my family, celebrating with them! Also, very HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to my other sister, Belinda, mother of my two wonderful nieces and wonderful nephew. I swiped the photo below of her and my niece, Lillian, from her Facebook page. Happy Mothers Day, y'all!
Happy Mother's Day to my favorite mom! Here we are having the time of our life at the Tanglewood Farm! We loved it here and had a great day seeing all the lovely and adorable animals at the farm. Here is me and my mama, and a llama and a llama mama! Happy Mothers's Day! I love you!
