It is August. Had you noticed?
How did August sneak up on me? Where has the summer gone?
And I have nothing to write about.
Life is slow. The house is full of house guests and a Shoe Queen. The garden is going well. It has rained for the last 4 days off and on.
Aren’t Nick and Cassandra just the cutest things!
And so I am reduced to taking pictures of ……..
The dead cicada that have begun to appear on the driveway and the deck. In the space of a few days they have begun to die off and are no longer singing their happy little psychotic song up in the trees. There are a few left but the noise is much reduced mores the pity.
The cicada was in much better condition yesterday. Still dead but relatively “intact”.
I had a minor heart attack when seeing the “ambulance” sitting out in front of my friend’s house during my morning walk. That is until I realized that vehicle actually belonged to the concrete company that is putting in their driveway.
It took me a moment to realize that the back of the vehicle wasn’t full of medical supplies but things like tubing and generators and tools.
That is certainly a way to get people’s attention.
Sorry about the terrible picture of the small dog down the street. All I had was the ipod. When we walk by she runs back and forth in her yard barking and throwing out doggie smack talk.
And finally, last but not least…..
Max checking his peemail.
I am so sorry.
I just had to put that picture up.
Hoping that things will be more interesting tomorrow. I don’t want you to leave me.
