Happy Geeky Writer and other stories

On account of today being our fourth wedding anniversary, this post is mostly going to be pictures.

First, so Maia gets her due representation:

Second, look what Carrie-Ann gave me!!!:

A Jane Austen action figure!
Complete with writing desk and a tiny brown Pride & Prejudice.
I couldn't stop grinning when I pulled it out of the box.
Thanks, Carrie-Ann!

Third, keeping a growing pumpkin from ripping itself right off the vine, or the vine off the fence:

Fourth, dahlias.

Fifth, I suspect Charles Darwin was struck with the nascent idea for On the Origin of Species upon harvesting Russian bananas from his garden.

Tell me that isn't trying to become a dog.

Music of the week: in honor of the occasion, here's a hymn we had at our wedding.

That's all for today! I'll try and write a proper post next week.

Happy weekend!


  1. Who said this wasn't a proper post? Still, you did things in the proper order: Cat first, Jane Austen second, everything else after that. :)

    Happy Anniversary!!

  2. Happy anniversary! May God grant you and Lou many more happy and healthy years together!

  3. I'm sure Maia will take care of the Russian banana before it evolves any further.

    Happy anniversary!

  4. Thanks, everybody! :) George, I did my best. :D David, I laughed SO hard at that.

  5. Happy (belated) anniversary, Jenna!! So glad you liked Jane--she seems to be placed on a fitting shelf. :o)

    You know, there has to be something Halloween related over at The Hog's Head that we can do with your Great Pumpkin....

    1. She's definitely on a fitting shelf! Of course, I'd have placed her next to her own books, but Maia can reach that one...

      The pumpkin could be our mascot! :D
