Bad, bad Nina!
Monday, May 25th, 2009


Progress on new cowboy novella

I’ve been lazy about posting to my blog. Must be because summer is sneaking up on me. We’ve had so much rain lately it’s been a little hard to tell. I finally got fed up yesterday and took the 4-year-old out to the pool to swim in the rain.

She threw a fit because she didn’t want to get her hair wet. Did I mention she’s blonde too?

Then of course, she had to walk all around the pool with me to check for critters. Every leaf was a toad or a snake. Guess I shouldn’t have rhapsodized about the baby cottonmouth or the worm snake I fished from the water this past week.

But she’s home with mom today, so I entered the pool in peace and quiet. Yeah, it was sprinkling again before I got out, but the water (78 degrees) was warmer than the outside air (73 degrees), so I didn’t care.

Fished out a dead shrew—I should have put it in a bucket to horrify the little monster the next time she stays over.

    Looks like you’re making good progress on the cowboy story.

    Oops gotta Z-man just stuck a bunch of stickers all over my Colorado carved bear. :roll:

    Just the stories of the critters you’ve fished out are enough to horrify me. lol

    Karin!
    I lived in Texas for years. Everything’s bigger there, including the bugs. Nothing fazes me now! :)

    Allison!
    You’re right. And the little bundle of joy knows it too.
