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.

Willy Nilly Friday~The “I don’t know which way I’m going” version

1) Bee Irish.
See, I’m so bossy that I’ll tell people what ethnicity to BEE. 
And I expect you to follow suit.

2) Mi Madre’
My Mom is having some health issues. She’s in the hospital (in ATL) and is undergoing a lot of tests. She already feels better than when she was admitted….but there are uncertainties.
(Hi Mom- I hope you have WIFI there!) 
Yesterday I was all over the place with information. I went from packing a bag and planning my departure to laughing on the phone with her!
My Mom: “You shouldn’t drive up here, unless you’re a gastroenterologist!” 
That’s my Mom.
Waiting and praying for some good news; no matter what, we will get through it together. 
If you are a praying person, she is most worthy of them. 

3)
Do you think I’m distracted? I found something odd in our junk drawer last night. Do you see it?
4)
I might be crackers. 
5) Again, sending love, health and well wishes to my {bee} Irish mom; I know she dresses weird, but weird people need love too. 
Love you Bev!
Happy Friday my people…and call your Mom, she’d love to hear from you. 
XOXO
