I am a very high strung type personality. SO this summer I am trying to relax and let go. Hence, the hair. Many of the boys are sporting mohawks this summer. When my son asked for one I said “why not”? It looks cool (temperature wise) and that’s what the summer is for. It will grow out by the time school starts and it’s a haircut mom can do with the clippers (it hides lots of mistakes).
I also killed a black widow spider and I believe her mate tonight as well. I was sweeping away some webs and thought I would move some stuff around and then BOOM there she is. At first I thought it was just a black spider, but when the family came out to look at it (we love bugs and insects around here) they pronounced that it was in fact a widow, a southern black widow, whose trade mark red hour glass is on the underside. Lovely. First time I have encountered one. Prayerfully, my last. I calmly swept them out and smashed them both with an iron sand pounder.
Although we are keeping to our “schedule” this summer, I am being relaxed in the afternoons for fun spur of the moment activities, playing at McDonalds, visiting the Snow Cone Lady, the science museum, and everyone favorite, swimming.
