Bad Blogger Attempts to Redeem Self With Photographic Offerings

I know, it's been over a week! I'm as shocked and dismayed by my lack of commitment and self-discipline as you are, believe me! Probably more so with my Virgo rising.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks since the kids got out of school, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love having them home. Yes, I know, most mommies can't wait for summer vacation to end because their kids get bored and they don't know what to do with them or something. I can't say I really understand it. I don't know why my kids don't get bored, all I know is I love summer vacation. I love not having to get them up in the morning, I love not having to make sure they do their homework, I love letting them stay up late reading and playing video games, I love camping in the backyard.

I was going to post yesterday, but I ended up playing with a bunch of pictures instead! The upside of that is I have a nice bunch ready to upload. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how many blogger can comfortably publish at one time, so here are just a few to get you started.

If I were a good blogger I'd look up the genus and the species of this toad for you, but I'm not. Thus, I leave it to you, my sleuthy, google-happy friends, to educate me. If you feel like it, or whatever.

This shot of Yo & PJ is one of Ebo's from our most recent camping trip. I love this picture!

I call this one "Stowaway." It's another job for our trusty internet sleuths! Whoever names this one by genus and species gets a free box of Giradellis!
Origins: Found while unpacking a suitcase several days after we returned from camping. She was pretty shriveled up inside her shell when I found her, so I tossed her into a nearby glass of water. I was absolutely delighted when she started to climb up the side of the glass!

Status: Rescued and successfully relocated to the rock garden. Lucky for her I don't have any ducks or geese!

Favorite Sons: This photo came about because of the other photo posted earlier of the boys when they were younger. PJ saw it and decided I needed to take a new picture "in front of the refrigerator." I love the gleeful expressions on those faces!

It's summer, we are being very lazy, too. Hey, it just occurred to me how often gay guys have featured in my life. Horticulture major, yes, a lot of gay hort. majors. Now living near an artist colony / gay friendly town. Finally learned to knit, and what do I find but gay guys who knit. Annny way, I thought you'd like the pictures over at Franklin's blog,
