Awesome Orb Weaver

Isn't she beautiful! This orb weaver is currently living out her last days at our friend's house. On our last pool day of the summer we noticed she had made an egg sack about 5 feet away from her web. She will die at first frost, but the egg sack, if left alone, will hatch in the spring with many baby orb weavers.  Pretty cool...but then, I do love spiders.

Cake is GOOD!

Laila Bug turned one! We had a small celebration at the park where Laila opened presents and had cake/cupcakes. Luckily the rain held out and we were able to celebrate her first year.  My time flies...

Favorite Pedi Ever!

So I generally don't like to show photos of my feet because, just yuck, but today I got the cutest pedicure ever!  I wanted something a little different so went with a light blue/green color ( I generally sick with pinks, reds, or French pedicures ).  One of the girls there does nail art when asked, for no extra charge! So expecting  a small, simple flower like I had gotten previously I asked for  some flower art.  And THIS is what I ended up with instead!  How cool is that! I love it!  You can't see it well in the photos, but the middle of the flowers and the insides of some of the leaves are silver. I will definitely be going back here!  If you are local, it is LA Nails in Oldham County in LaGrange, Ky.

Groundhog Visitor

This little guy has been hanging around our back yard and sunning on the lower back deck. He's (or she) is fairly small so I'm thinking he just recently left momma groundhog to be on his own. We were seeing him every day, but after an afternoon of target shooting we seem to have scared him off, which probably isn't a bad thing. It was neat seeing him up so close - cute personality in these little guys!
