Last night, as I took Millie out to do her business, I was under attack --- JUNE BUGS.........Eeeeek
Hitting my head, pinging off the siding, their disgusting hard shells crunching under my flip flops in the dark. Arrrghhh I hate them. I imagine they will get caught in my hair and I might actually have to pick one out. Oh, the horror !!
All the while, I'm screaming at Millie - "Hurry up, they're going to get us!!"
Thankfully they are only around for a short time. Then it's the earwigs - oh joy oh bliss.
On a less creepy note - I have lost my hooking MoJo the last week or so. I can't get going. I have blank burlap, wool etc but nothing that makes me want to hook. So I popped into Deannes at lunch and asked Brenda to find me a small project to get me moving again.
We picked out this very funky flower. Perfect for inspiration. Actually it really reminds of Cathy's work at Orange Sink. And since I love her patterns I had to try it. I know it won't match her fun style but it will be fun for me to give it a whirl.
And....I bought myself a new camera lens and it arrived today. I hope the weather forecast changes so I can test it out this weekend. I have to stop buying lenses now or else get a larger camera bag. This one does not have a zoom but takes a wider angle shot for landscapes etc. The photography lessons start in a couple of weeks so I want to practice.
Oh, and in the interest of public safety I did have 1 cookie last night. Just one though.
