Six Years Old

Six years ago, Rion was born in the foster care program of Pikes Peak Humane Society. Eight weeks later, on a cold December evening, he joined our family.Rion's First NightThis photo shows him on his first night with us, when he was rather apprehensive. However, within a day or so, he decided that Rion Rules! an attitude he has never lost.

"The Passionate Shepherd to HIs Love,' by Christopher Marlowe

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields
Woods or steepy mountain yields

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
By shallow rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flower, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold
With buckles of the purest gold;

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.

The shepherds' swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.

Read "Spinward" by Dialecticdreamer

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written the science fiction ficlet "Spinward" to someone else's prompt in the Creative Jam, but it's so awesome I wanted to share anyhow.  If you enjoy positive stories about human/AI partnerships, definitely give this a look.

Hearty soup

Fall is soup weather! This recipe is a good soup for cooler weather - hearty, filling, healthy and thrifty. It uses dried legumes, as being both healthier for you and less expensive than the canned variety, but feel free to substitute canned if you don't have the time or inclination to simmer beans.

Dear Yuletide Writer

Thank you very much for writing for me!

Slash, femslash, gen and het are all fine by me. I love friendship fic, I love dialogue and I love AUs of all descriptions. Plotty fic is welcome but not necessary. I'd prefer not to have fic where any of the main protagonists die, and please don't include anything at all to do with eyeballs being damaged or animals being hurt or put in peril, because those are big squicks for me.

I truly love all three of these fandoms, so anything written in any of them will be welcomed with open arms.
