Weekly News

Welcome back to all my warm friends out there as well as my snow-bound ones. I finished a run earlier in 73 degree weather. Don’t be jealous if you’re getting pummeled by snow. I live in Colorado, which means that I could be buried under feet of snow any day between now and the end of April. Until then, I enjoy. 🙂 Time for some news.

This first story has the highest cute factor I’ve seen for a while. It may be over-shared online, but I just couldn’t leave it be. He’s. So. Cute.

This house looked weird when I first saw the picture, but then I saw the inside. I don’t know if I could get over feeling like I was living in a fairy tale, but it is interesting.

Last up in science, they found grandpa.

That’s all for tonight. If you’re reading this wrapped up in blankets, grab a cocoa. If you’re toasty warm like we are at the moment, enjoy. See you in seven.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    It’s 73 here too, but the forecast says it will vary from 65-75 over the next few weeks. As long as it’s below 80, I can stand it. (By June it’ll be 90 though). Aww. That cute little goldfish needs a name…like Speedy. (Hee-hee! I’m so bad.) I’d enjoy living *next* to a giant cowboy boot, but the house is too small for me. I know nothing about ancient skulls other than “hominin” reminds me of “homonym.” 😉

      We’ve stayed up there all week, with the occasional blustery day. We do get quite a bit of wind at times. I’m with you on staying under 80, but that doesn’t keep me from rooting for summer because I’m off. I can’t wait to get sustained time to write.

      Speedy is a good name. 😉

      I know little about paleoanthropology, but I find it fascinating.I hope you had a great weekend, Lex!

  2. I hadn’t seen the goldfish – what a great solution. Not sure how I feel about the boot – loved the line about Mother Goose though. All archaeology interests me – it’s amazing that we know so much about our ancestors!

    • kimlajevardi says:

      It was a pretty cool solution for that little guy. I like the idea of the boot more than I imagine I would like living there. I agree about studying our ancestors; it’s amazing what we can learn.

    That little wheelchair for the goldfish is adorable.

  4. Well we don’t want our goldfish floating funny.
    That house is really unique. Thought the bathroom was really cool. I wouldn’t want to live in it though.

      He is so cute, though. The meme value alone is worth taking such an obviously weird engineering step. 😉

      I wouldn’t want to live in the house either, but it is cool.
