Anyway, I was knitting a tree, and then it became apparent that it had to be a person. Tree Buddy. Tree Guy. Tree Friend.
Yes I know, my family thinks I'm crazy too.
Anyway, you can find my tree friend at Woolies. :)

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Inspired by Soule Mama.

2. Remaining car breaks down (again)
3. MAJOR MAJOR Central Air conditioning repair needed - in the middle of June heat - 108-110 degrees this week
4. Bank Account Hacked - just as we're trying to buy a new car for the totaled truck and have to put some $$ down - money is stolen from the account. Lots of it. They hacked both my husband's and my debit cards - how did they do that??
OK, I'm done now. Please stop. Thanks.

I'm going to keep persisting.
Anyway, I love turtles.
From Dads Wooden Toys.
And you might see a Woolies turtle peeking out at you from the window.

I'm kind of hoping it is totaled. I might buy a tank for my kid to drive.

My oldest son will be leaving home in August - going away to college. It weighs heavily on my mind. It's always there....he won't be here anymore. It's the natural progression - I'm excited and happy for him - but but but. The Mommy in me is desolate.
It's summer in Tucson. Which means hot. HOT. I don't do well in HOT. The state of Arizona is burning like crazy with wildfires, not under control. 0% containment, they tell us on the news. That means that the fires just keep spreading. They've closed all the state parks and lands, trying to prevent anymore fires.
Whining. Yikes I'm whining.
Want to hear about the noise the pool is making? It's crazy. The kids rarely even go in the pool anymore.
Want to hear about the bugs in the house? They're called kissing bugs. The bite they give is terrible. My husband just went through a whole medical thing because of a bite. I just killed one on the kitchen floor.
Soon (although not soon enough), it will be monsoon season. The pool will be filled with frogs and poisonous GIANT desert toads. You have to beware of rattlesnakes everywhere you go (including just stepping onto the patio from the kitchen door). Keep an eye out for scorpions and black widow spiders. The horses are hot and bothered. You constantly battle flies. We now get these little bugs (yep, we buy bugs) called fly predators. They eat fly larvae. We also have goldfish in the water troughs. They eat fly larvae too. There are still flies. Maybe not as bad as before.
Want to hear about my corporate day job? No, you don't.
I'm whining really badly. I don't even have any pictures to show you, my poor readers, if there are any of you.
Maybe I'm just tired. Maybe I need some time off from my day job. Yes, that's it. I'm off to write to my supervisor requesting some PTO. Like, maybe, Monday?

Sharing some pics of who I'm caring for this weekend. :)
3 Arabian horses, a donkey named Christmas, and a mini horse who rules the herd, named Cricket.
Jack Russel Terrier Mama and her 5 newborn babies. She's not growling at me, that's just how her little mouth is.
What a great weekend!
