My cheese monster. So I took this picture at a restaurant as my little one ate his sundae. I take lots of repetitive pictures and in the rest he had turned his head another way so I couldn't get the shot. Why do I take lots of pictures to annoy the men in my life... Just to get that shot that makes me smile!! Smile!! Smile!! I guess I am a cheese monster too.
So the file I am working on right now is Boys & Bugs. This is how it has come out so far. (below). I like it. It isn't in the store yet just finalizing a few pieces of it. I wanted to create this file because a my hubby and I worked in the garden the other day (and we are seriously renovating) my little one decided that he wanted to befriend this little grub. So we moved him out to a rock for him to look at and my little one put little pieces of leaf on the rock for him to eat. I didn't have my camera out and I was on a roll so I let the picture go and mentally remembered to create a file for the moment. There are lots of little bugs in the garden so hopefully I will catch that picture... and snakes. Rattle Snakes and Coachwhips. Well I haven't seen a rattlesnake in the garden yet, but outside of it yes. My little one and I are out in the garden quite often. So I am on radar all the time for movement. So I don't want that possibility to be there that he grabs a stick and it is a snake. So I do what I can to keep them away. We have had a horse bitten in the nose one time and had to stuff garden hose up his nose so he didn't die from lack of air due to swelling (and I won't share the pics, yes I had my camera on me) . I back fill the packrat holes and don't feed rabbits or quail. If they don't have something to eat they go look elsewhere. I was in the garden two summers ago and reached down to pick up a rake and thought wow... what did Greg do to the handle and realized as my hand was inches away that I was almost grabbing the end of a snake. It was a coachwhip. They bite from what I understand, but they go after rattlesnakes too. So I will keep them around. Well what a great post. I am rambling as my hubby lays on the couch passed out from Nyquil. He can't sleep flat because of his cold. So he has decided to crash in a half sitting position. Poor guy. He works so hard and to be sick during the week kills him. So I am comforting him as I sit out here and work on creative files. Well he might not think it is comforting him because he is passed out and I am on a creative wave so I would use any excuse to create. I hope I don't get this cold! I don't have patience for another. Well I think I am off to find a multi-vitamin. and some more vitamin C. Have a wonderful Wednesday. And thanks for making it all the way through this post. It is quite the rambling roll. I hope some of you can use the file. And I chose to put the scorpion off the mat so for those who would rather not use it they can leave it off and there won't be an empty spot.
