sorry for the lateness of this--and the briefness of it as well...
i have a bunch of deadlines and a handful of errands that had to be done TODAY...and i'm still not all on it.
nothing really exciting to write about, so...
hope you all had a great weekend! things were busy, yet peaceful here. got stung the other night by a yellowjacket when i was bringing jake in from outside. we've been having a real time of it with mosquitos this year (all that rain in may and june and a severe drop in the local bat population due to what's called white nose disease...) and so as was coming in, the jake under my right arm, i was squatting the swarming mosquitos away from my head when this bee, attracted by the porch light, i'd guess, somehow got involved and flew into my face between my eye and my glasses. he panicked and i panicked and, not wanting to drop jake i tried to reach over and get my glasses off with my left hand, but then that hand coming at him musta freaked him out 'cause he stung me just below my right eye. i swore a few times and got jake down gently, but man, that hurt! iced it up and let it get numb before i could apologize to sharon for yelling at her (actually, i was yelling at everything...) and at least it didn't sting me ON the eye.
there, see, i told you nothing to write about.
here are a couple of pictures i stole offa yahoo and the answers to the five for friday.
