Perfect theme for this post.
We'll start with the giant spiderweb i walked through between our cars in the dark when i headed out for my walk early. It was like walking through the netting on a soccer goal!!! The spider that was on the back of our truck the other day (GAAAACCCKKKK) WAS PROBABLY IN MY HAIR ALL MORNING!! Seriously can anyone identify this spider? Yeeps.
But then, I was treated to a gorgeous sunrise - my pleasant early and too short walk yielded a beautiful sky, some unusually cool air temperatures, TWO of my bunnies - I was early enough that no one had scared them with their dogs yet, and howling coyotes in the woods.
Oh yeah, and a major snake rescue. This itty bitty snake was in grave peril in the bike lane. He didn't particularly enjoy being picked up, but I've seen enough squashed snakes to know he wasn't long for this world if I didn't intervene. So after a couple of tries, I finally grabbed the wiggly little fella and put him safely in the grass. Those of you who have been with me since last year know that I tend to engage with snakes on my walk - last year I nudged a fascinating little baby rattlesnake with my shoe to see if it was dead or just playing and IT WAS JUST PLAYING! He whipped around and tried to bite me, but it was cold and he was slower than me. But I do know the difference between venomous and non venomous snakes so I wouldn't have picked him up!
I know you're worried about my IQ after the mailbox thing, but i do know my snakes and bugs!
I CASEd this cute pumpkin today,from the awesome Zany not Crazy Blog! I used the new Halloween DSP, the edge of the large star for the eye, various circle punches and the new wide oval. I used a gold gel pen for his mouth.
The accent is from Batty For You.
All these papers were so cool I had to use them all at once.
I'm typing this with one hand while one of the stars of the World Kitty Federation sleeps soundly in my other.
There were some crazy kitty smackdowns today, with them meeting each other on the corner of Gibroni and Whoop@$$ for some crazy Vegas style moves.
Here's one of the highlights. My money's on little Madagascar - caught in mid whoop@$$!!
Dont let their fave pink tissue paper lead you into thinking they are soft and fuzzy - BE AFRAID!
Hope you guys had a good Sunday and are safe from the hurricane tomorrow!!
