So lately, my calling has been kind of demanding. You wouldn’t think it, but being the emergency prep guru can get kind of stressful. There are no meetings, though, so that’s a major bonus. But sometimes I have trouble finding the line between serving others, and being taken advantage of. And then, if I feel taken advantage of, I get grumpy. And when I am grumpy, I feel less than spiritual, and so am therefore by definition just doing, not serving. And nothing good comes from grumpy doing when you are supposed to be spiritually serving. Except maybe good desserts.
My dog’s tail is getting better, or at least she was able to wag it at a friend’s dog today. Each morning, though, we have a ritual where she gets her incontinent meds, her pain meds, and her ear cleaner. Sheesh, what a lemon. She has soft ears, though.
Student loans are a bear. I hate them.
I bought some sweats for J. Green ones, from Walmart (yes, I went there. See above note about student loans). He put them on and said, “I’m a green ninja!” and went running outside, doing his ninja moves. I called to him, “Hey, put on your crocs!” He popped his head back in the door and said, “Ninjas don’t wear crocs.”
I don’t know if that was a moment of pure childhood imagination, or just an excuse to ignore his mother.
I found a this in my garden today:
I know you can’t tell, but the spider’s body is about the size of my pinky. I was torn between being completely freaked out and horribly fascinated. J and I then spent the afternoon googling spiders. That’s kind of educational, right? Plus, I thought this gal (it’s a female argiope spider) is kinda pretty.
(Apologies to Jamisue, who is arachnophobic. She probably doesn’t see the beauty of this thing AT. ALL.)
10 points and a million fake MMW dollars to anybody who can come up with the best reason why these spiders weave that zig zag pattern into their webs. I know, those are SERIOUS incentives. Show me what you got.
