The one where almost everything is flying.

*The Flag
For Coach’s birthday the girls gifted him with a flagpole; he’s wanted one for the yard for a long time.
(The black/blue flag stands for Law Enforcement support)
The clanking of the flags/straps/clips in the wind reminds me of being back in public school. I loathed school, but I find the sound of the flag clanging comforting. If I ever get to therapy, I’m sure theres a reason for this.


(I have no idea why two videos show up. When I try to edit it only shows one)

*The garden
My new-ish butterfly garden is coming in really well. But now I’m now wondering if I’ve put in too many plants? I need to do some trimming. FYI: It’s a huge butterfly attractor for sure….but what I’m most surprised by is the amount of bee’s that are always present.
I’m talking nearly eleventy thousand bees.daily. Yes, I counted them and I’m exhausted.

*The butterflies
I’m still busy making monarchs.
Ok, I’m not ACTUALLY making them, I’m assisting them to have life. I’m a life assistant.

This week I’ve had 5 emerge….all females. If some boys don’t start showing up we’re gonna be in trouble; the girls need the boys to make babies. Well, at least thats how it works in nature.

But….a few weeks ago I did catch these two in the act of love.
Butterfly porn….yep, it happens in my yard.

*I took the dogs out to potty after dinner one night and Cocoa decided to forgo the potty action and have a little siesta by the pool; Harley joined in a minute later. These two old (11 & 17) critters are best buds.

*It’s been windy and kinda overcast all week and I LOVE IT. Really, we get too much sunshine around here…..I like a bit of a change.
Yeah, I just said that.
Also, the humidity is taking a bit of a break and the air has dried up a tad. Honest to goodness my skin felt it within 12 minutes. Death.Valley.Skin.for.SUZ.

If you need me, I’ll be in the bathroom applying moisturizer.

Have a great weekend my friends!

Linking up with Tanya for Willy Nilly Fridays.

What’s happening?

I’ve really gotta get on the blog ball again! I fell off and it’s hard to get back on ya know? 
I suppose I should shop for a flat ball. 
Cocoa doesn’t like to look at the camera….she might be superstitious or rude. 
Callie lives in a very large house with lots of napping options. Her favorite place? The 24″ in between the couch and the coffee table. Dogs are sweet. And weird. 
We had a little party last weekend. Kinda for the Coach’s birthday and kinda because we haven’t had a party in a while. I was going into party detox. It appears that I’m strangling him with my love. And I am. 
It was fun to have both my girlies here for the night. Linds is doing great in school and loves her job. (She’s working at a juice bar and was just promoted to shift lead.) She’s also gone vegetarian and is feeling great! 
Lolo is in her 6th week at the Police Academy and is doing fantastic. I’m still in denial about it all and I’m working to change some laws. The first one will be that the police academy will last for 5 years instead of six months. Wish me luck. 
It’s starting to cool off down here in SW Florida…and I couldn’t be happier. 
On my agenda for the weekend is garden work, bathing stinky dogs, giving butterflies life and catching up on housework and my DVR. 
What’s on the agenda for you?
