What's been going on in my world as of late? It's been a mixed bag...such as:
She's always bragging about Costa Vida and pesto porkchops and softing Ted's hair, so I have to brag about these. Love you, Lauren.
Scott and I chaperoned Libbey's class' field trip to a planetarium. We had to wear the same neon yellow shirts as Lib and her BFF, Bronwen. You'll notice I did not include photographic evidence of me and Scott in this hue. Because we did not rival the sun, moon, and stars in said neon yellow shirts. No, we did not. Thankyouverymuch.
This was hanging on the wall near the door of the Planetarium's entrance. Apparently a preying mantis devouring a roach has a lot to do with astronomy. I'll now turn Scott's telescope to discover this constellation in the night sky. Gonna name it Crunchy Lunchy-opeia.
Um...hi, sun! Thank you for blazing during the past few days. I love fuschia geraniums. I love digging in the dirt. I love listening to Bobby Long while getting dirty. (That's what she said.)
I also kept busy by doing a lot of research on wolves. We saw a bunch at the planetarium. (Because wolves have a lot to do with stars, too--just like a faux preying mantis.) But none of them were as interesting as these particular wolves:
And I now think the fasting and praying is proving to be a very good thing. I run with wolves. These wolves. Especially that one on the far left. How you doin'?
Did y'all have fabulous summer weather-in-the-spring this past weekend? Did you dig in the dirt or lie around the house? Do you want the Tomato-Bacon Tartlet recipe? What do you think of a ginormous hanging mantis? Do you run with wolves?
I must know. Please share your bag of potpourri. Unless it's vanilla-scented. 'Cause that's a big no-no for me.
p.s. Happy 67th Birthday, Dad. I was gonna post about that time your band opened for Jerry Lee Lewis, but I know you don't like for me to brag on your guitar prowess. (Which means I'm saving that story for a post on its own, of course.) I love you and your Harley-riding, computer geeking, guitar & mandolin-strummin' self.
