It is a rainy, chilly Saturday here at world of June.
Here is my rain hair.
I put this picture on Facebook last night with the words to the Cowardly Lion's "Courage" speech. Because what makes the Sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage.
This hair is the eighth wonder.
And speaking of the strange and terrible, one of the bushes I planted just started blooming. I think it's a gardenia. How much do you like me for not remembering what it is? It could be an azalea, but either way, it's not supposed to bloom now, is it? When it's 63 and rainy? What gives?
Look at the brown fall leaves around it! It's like, incongruous plant!
You don't know how many fibers in my being want to go back out in the cold rain and pull that clover down there, and also those tall wispy weeds at right. The rain has made weeds just SHOOT up. But look at my pretty pink salvia! I said to Marvin today, "My salvia's going crazy" and he said, "Well, then, spit."
Who adores himself night and day?
In other news, half of my pets had to go to the vet today. (Yeah, no, I'm really not going to say fur children. Ever.)
We had to make sure Henry would not become a rabid kitten. It may be too late. Have you met his jerky personality? I like how the bars of the cage cover his eyes like he's a Glamour Don't.
Henry was accompanied by his large sister, Tallulah, who had to get some other annoying shot so she can hang around 57 dogs every day. Dog day care. It just gets cheaper.
They are at the vet in the photo above, along with Marvin's knee, waiting for the scary vet with trepidation. How ridunkulously blog-centric am I that I took a camera to the vet? I enjoy Lu's dog feet sliding out from under her on the linoleum floor.
And I guess that wraps up today, other than I bought a resistance band. I tried and tried not to buy it. Get it? Cause it's a resistance band? Oh, forget it.
Gonna go resist something.
Oh! Wait! There's more! Comment of the Week, which I forgot to do last week so Paula got two beautiful weeks with her crown, goes to Faithful Reader (and my former editor at our hard-hitting high school newspaper) The Chief.
Most convoluted sentence, ever. Edit it, The Chief.
So click on Special of the Week in the right column to see The Chief's editorial comments.
