tootsie rolls and turtles

We are all enjoying the Olympics very much. I'm terribly sad that they will be over soon, but it's probably for the best as I haven't accomplished much of anything in the last few weeks due to the hours and hours of tv watching.
Scout had a vet appointment yesterday and therefore her "stool sample" was on the kitchen counter in a bread co. bag. Chris would like me to emphasize for you all that this note was just a joke and he did not, in fact, eat cat poo.


And finally, I've gotten so good at gardening that I grew a turtle! Chris found this little guy in our garden this morning. Isn't he cute? Not at all like my last traumatic turtle experience!


Unfortunately, the little guy moved on before I got home from work, so all I got to see were pictures.

more wildlife themed lunch notes

We've got a mama bunny and two babies (who are getting bigger) living in our back yard and they are so cute sometimes we just watch them out the window. It's always a big production too like "Chris! Hurry! The bunnies are in the backyard!" I know I've covered our exciting life here before, so it should come as no surprise that we do things like watch bunnies in our back yard.
This note was after watching the five part BBC series "Life in Cold Blood" (now on DVD) which was totally fabulous and absolutely worth watching. If you're a fan of nature docs, it's got some really fascinating stuff, including the worlds tinest (and cutest) chameleon - it's the size of your thumbnail!!!
Never thought I would feel sorry for spiders. But being played with to death can't be a good way to go.

out sick

Here are a few notes to catch up. I've been miserably sick most of the week with double ear infections but I'm on the mend now. Yay for antibiotics!
