I am starting to lose track of my days. It is getting busier and busier around here.
Last weekend was a wonderful three day weekend and the same with this weekend. Phew….I need some long weekends before the craziness starts.
Friday, I mainly took the day off because I had a doctor appointment and she is all the way up there, so I did not feel like going all the way up there and then coming all the way down here to work. Plus I needed the day. I had such a long laundry list of things I needed to talk to her about. She is super excited that I may ditch running and move onto cycling, as she cycles herself.
Speaking of which, Matt had to buy some items for a test he had yesterday, so he mapped out a 10.1 mile ride around town. It ended up being 10.5 miles and it was so awesome! We got stuck in a downpour, but it benefited us because it was so flipping hot. I am itching to plan out a 15 mile ride and build my mileage up over time. I think I am going to need some butt pads in my future!!
After the doctor, I headed to my favorite, Hobby Lobby. I have a party to plan and needed some supplies on the cheap.
I was so sad to see Christmas already up! Let’s not speed up summer. I love it too much.This lovely lady was on clearance and I thought she was an interesting piece to add and hold my necklaces. Now, I need to give her a sassy, southern name. I’m thinking Blanche!In case you didnt know, my 30th is coming up (July 6th if you want to send cake). I started making some fun labels for hopefully cake pops. The party is going to be at my house, so nothing fancy and I cant go crazy on decorations.
Saturday I spent most of the day being pretty stinking lazy and cleaning. My dad and sister are in town, so my messy house can be no more.
Look who decided to bloom on me. This one is a temperamental little beast. I have to constantly keep her watered to keep her happy. Her brother from another mother in the back of the yard is not acting like this, but he doesnt have a bloom like her.
We harvested our first cucumber and it was a big boy! I think we have picked 5 so far and there are more ready to go! Just a few months ago I thought that plant was dead. Our tomato plants have tons of fruit on them, but nothing is ripening yet. Grrr
My dad and sister are in town, so Sunday we drove down to West Georgia and went on the Wild Safari. I have never been, so I had no idea what to expect.
Basically, all the animals are roaming and the more aggressive ones are caged up. You get a bag of feed and follow the road through. The emu was pretty boring and I worried that was what we were going to deal with for the trip.NOPE! I was so wrong. Once word got out that we had food…..people started coming out of the woodwork. There were SO.MANY.TOUNGES. in my car. SO MUCH DROOL! One guy popped his big old head in my car and had the nerve to burp. It took all I had to not throw up everywhere! It was a lot of fun and we laughed the entire time.
This guy walked right up to our car and stuck his head into the sunroof. I guess he was happy he didnt have to bend so low to get his food. He was pretty skittish and wouldn’t let us pet him. Bummer
The zebras were very bossy. You cant feed them with your hand (mainly the picture below will tell you why) and when they showed up, other animals moved without question.
