Me? I've been working in the Studio a lot! Here I am, working very hard:
We saw a picture of a beautiful quilt our buddy Remington's Beth made that was all really wonderful "comfort colors" -- those fabrics that just make you feel as warm and fuzzy as ... well, as me ... inside and out! It inspired Mom and me to dig through some of her baskets and put together a scrappy quilt out of some of our "comfort colors"! Just scraps of stuff Mom has saved from other projects. Take a look at our early progress up on the pressing table while I take a quick break:
How about a close-up of one of my favorite little snippets?
Ha woo. I wonder how that Siberian got slipped in there?
Mom left me to finish up some work, then went upstairs to make an apple pie. Zim helped her out - he's great at kitchen stuff!
|"Hey, Mom. Whatcha doing? How long does that thing take, anyway?"|
Zim said it took Mom forever to make the pie, but he stuck with her every step of the way.
As a reward for all of our hard work, and to celebrate single-digit temperatures, we did a lot of this:
In case you're wondering, we didn't get any pie. That's OK, we still have lots of Happy Heart cookies and Stinky Goodness treats!
Dad worked hard doing a lot of work stuff this week, too, and because he doesn't think it's fun to golf when it's all frosty and cold outside, he started recording some of his and Mom's vinyl albums (that's what bipeds used to listen to a million years ago) - and put them into Mom's iTunes thingie. Mom let me sample some old Michael Franks one afternoon in the Studio. Here's what I thought:

Can you see my smile? That guy is smoooooooth!
Speaking of smooth guys ... Zim conned Mom into taking him out to that Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean place! Here's a collage of him looking around:
Zim said it was super windy and colder than cold can be. Doesn't that sound great?
So as you can see, we've been real busy right here in Kansas, working hard and stuff. It's not like we've been on an airplane somewhere with some of the other Mango Minster judges flying to an undisclosed location. Really.
