Beignets at Powderface Cafe

Drinks and beignets — in San Jose! Who would have thought? Such a nice setting for sitting and talking with friends over coffee and treats.

PS: My cinnamon-sugar beignet was delicious, but I’ll have to try the powdered sugar one next time.

Happy, happy birthday to Penny

It’s someone’s birthday today…

…someone who thinks they can hide in paper bags…


…someone who is curious…


…someone who loves tissue paper so very much…


…it’s Penny! She turns a ripe old 4 years of age today. We’ve had her for 2 years and our lives (and our carpets, which used to be stain-free) will never be the same. Happy birthday, Penny.
