apocalypse now?

The temperature today is in the high sixties. In St. Louis. In Late July. Is this one of the signs of the apocalypse?

We've had quite a few close encounters of the spider-kind recently probably due to some wet weather, hot weather and lack of chemicals in our house to keep them away. And interestingly enough, the cat who won't play with ants, loves to play with spiders. And June bugs. She really, really loves the June bugs.

five years!

Yesterday was our fifth wedding anniversary! We celebrated the day in old married couple style with some leftovers for dinner and a movie checked out from the library! What an exciting life we lead! But really, I know anyone who reads this blog knows what an awesome husband I have. I feel so lucky to have found someone who is such an amazing partner and I'm glad he still wants to be my husband!

wee watermellon

This is my little friend wee watermelon. He is about an inch long and cute as hell. He has other friends in my garden like tiny tomato, pequeno jalapeno and itty-bitty cucumber.

sometimes it's hard to think of a title

I really wanted to post a picture of the world's cutest watermellon (only 1" long!) which is currently growing in my back yard garden but haven't had time to go out with a camera yet. I know no one cares what I'm growing in my back yard, but damnit, I'm excited about my tomatoes, zuchini, jalapenos, green peppers, canteloupe and watermelon! I'm less excited about the cucumbers because, although they are one of my favorite veggies, they are growing at a rate that has me concerned for our house! Seriously. They are already over the garden wall and spilling into the rest of the yard.

The last 24 hours have felt like the equivalent of getting punched in the belly over and over.

slightly less tired

This one took me a minute to get, then I remembered that Chris just got a bunch of Godzilla movies in the mail the other day.
So I woke up for work yesterday and was so tired that I just could not function. My boss was nice enough to let me take the day off so I could sleep. Which I did, until 3 p.m. and only woke up then because I had to go to class last night. As a person who usually wakes up at 6 am on the weekends and enjoys being as productive as possible with my time off, it killed me to waste a vacation day sleeping, but man did I need it.
