the weather this week has been amazing. all the windows are open.
my yard has exactly 9 tulips. :) annie asked me yestrday if they were poisonous. ha ha ha i guess i have never told her about tulips.
good morning....time for the school bus.
last night i was home for one hour to unload my car and load it back up for craft weekend. while loading...the sky turned.
my left view and my right view....a storm came in right over our house. it got dark really fast. we had the kind of big rain with sunshine and huge fat raindrops. love that kind.
on my way to pick up sean we pulled over to admire the rainbow. we could see the whole thing.
and we sang the double rainbow song.....what does it meeeean?!!
i am off to RUN mile 97, 98, 99 and 100. then going to craft weekend. kimberlee and i have been woeking hard to get the house looking beeeeautiful. lots and lots to do. but it has been such a good time!! kerry even brought us choclate coconut cupcakes yesterday....we may have eaten all 6.
while i was on a run on sunday afternoon my girls found a turtle in our yard!
they named him Phil.
sean, talby and annie came up with a great plan to keep it in the area that we think is a trough for horses? but honestly....what do we know? i have seen Charolette's Web...the original....and that is about the extent of my knowledge of farm life.
but the trough had probably a year or two of leaves in it and the week of rain made it a perfect turtle world! it's very wet and muddy.
turtles are amazing little creatures. so much detail on their entire body.
just look at that face! he is an art project waiting to be made! the lines and the colors....oh i love turtles.
sidenote: one time when i was annie's age i had a box turtle i found and i went to the pool and asked my dad to watch my turtle in the laundry room while i was gone. when i got home he told me it had escaped. i believed him until just recently when i remembered that story and relaized i had been tricked. turtles can't escape a laundry room!! REAL nice dad!
why would God put orange on the bottom of turtle shell? it's so interesting! there is probably some reason.....there always is.
then on monday i found another turtle in the middle of the road. i pulled over and jumped out and put it in a big pot i had in the trunk, took it home and put it in with phil. :) they can be buddies.
this photo is called Ode to Spring. or maybe it should be called Ode to Allergies. HA HA HAAAA.
craig mowed the yard on saturday. it took all the time it takes to play all the avett brothers songs we have. ha!
and last night i laid in bed at midnight with the windows open and i heard four things. 1. craig breathing 2. frogs 3. cows....or should i say COW...just one...MOOOOOO. pause. MOOOOO. pause. MOOOOOO... repeat. 4. owls
i like this place.
my running.... i am at 86 miles. i have 4 days left. totally going to make it!! a w e s o m e. i would have LAUGHED IN YOUR FACE if you had told me last year i would be running 6 miles in march. but i did it on sunday by myself with no one to make me finish but myself. and Lance Armstrong came over my Nike+ thing on my iPod congratulating me. i know it's just a recording but still it feels pretty sweet.
ok...WINNER for the elissa Hudson prints?! *********************************
