took a couple of days off this past week & it was most excellent! My only
complaint was that I had to put makeup on & leave the house every day, but
otherwise it was nice & relaxing.
Sunday, June 12th
No photo. I stayed home from
church & apparently did nothing photo-worthy. Well, Dr. M posted a photo of
a rash on his leg asking for advice (we were a bit worried that it might be
shingles). It turned out to be a reaction to stinging nettle. Rude!

Mexican night & I tried the corn. It was SO GOOD but I was laughing so hard
I could hardly eat. And I’m pretty sure that a guy in the next booth was
videotaping me. It wasn’t until I was halfway through that it occurred to me
that I could have cut the corn off the cob which would have been MUCH less

Seen around the Bug

I was off work today! I did
a photo shoot for my latest two squares, and I went to my dad’s to visit &
work a puzzle. I think maybe that was it? I did crochet some.
Friday, June 17h
Dr. M & I went on a
mountain ramble, but before we even left the house we saw this terribly cute
little toad! It was no bigger than my thumbnail.
We drove up to Craggy
Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were a little late for the rhododendrons
(last year we were early), but we saw a few of them, plus mountain laurel, fire
azaleas, phlox, and a small bear!! I had a mildly amusing long caption for the
photo I posted on the socials, which you can read here.
Saturday, June 18th
Washed my hair & turned
into a teenage boy.
Went to my dad’s to give him
his Father’s Day gift and card. And work a puzzle. (And, yes, visit with him
is Father’s Day & my mother’s birthday & Juneteenth & I hardly know
which way to turn! Lots of feelings about all three of those holidays. I know
that Father’s Day is on your radar (whether you celebrate or not), and I know
my mother’s birthday isn’t on your radar. But is Juneteenth? It mainly feels
like a day of mourning for me because as a nation we have so far to go.
