Tiny Adventure

This evening the girl and I decided to venture to “The Woods” to take the dogs for a walk. Except for the getting eaten alive part (holy mosquitoes Batman!) we had fun. Z the Beagle wasn’t that into walking, but B was in her glory and had to be the leader…it was kind of funny. The girl and I decided that we have to go once without the dogs and we need to bring a real camera. We both loved this tree and this picture doesn’t do it justice but it’s very hard to take a picture with a dog leash pulling on your other arm.WP_20140712_005

Then there was this tree that held a little fairy house….an empty one.WP_20140712_007

Then there were the owls….it was breath taking….I just couldn’t get close enough….WP_20140712_010

We saw a deer and dragonflies  and some pretty amazing trees. Every time I stopped to take a picture…I was dive bombed…we will load up on the bug spray next time.

Whoever said that the extreme cold would mean less bugs…was a big fat liar!!! Fruit flies are everywhere too, at work I feel like one of those toy monkeys with the cymbals, although I have killed quite a few. Today I poured a glass of wine and wasn’t paying attention……I ate a bug!  The kids thought it was hysterical….ick!!!

Book club was last night, as always it was a good time. We read Garden Spells this month.1158967

It was a fast read which is perfect for summer, I had previously read it but didn’t mind reading it again. Tuesday this book comes out…….I can’t wait….but I have to.16054217

Do you know that this book is $10.00 cheaper online than it is in the store? I have a Barnes and Noble Member card so I won’t have to pay for shipping but I won’t have it in my hands on Tuesday when it comes out….it makes me sad. I will have my fill of that store soon….they are having a pop culture event from July 18th through August 10th. It’s all right up the girls alley and she’s already excited about it and we don’t even have all of the details yet.

Speaking of the girl…..have you ever watched a teenage girl try and kill a spider with a sword? Let me tell you it’s pretty funny….I tried to tell her “human….sword, spider….shoe”. So why was I surprised when she went after one in the mulch with balls from a tossing game?WP_20140709_001

She killed it though, it took a lot longer than a shoe would have but she was determined.

I have been trying to catch up on some other things that need my attention so I haven’t been around much. Time management and me….always a struggle….Zia

 

About dragonflyzia

I am just a woman finally accepting that I was never meant to be in the box. I don't fit into any stereotypes, please don't try and label me, that doesn't work either. I am embracing my uniqueness in ways that are new and challenging to me, so that I may continue to grow and never stop learning.
