(Above is a lizard I found clinging to the vacuum hose in our pool. The water is pretty cold right now and after I took his picture I fished him out.)
About four inches long, it took him awhile to warm up and go on his way.
Something I am reading: Actually I finished “The Baker’s Secret” by Stephen Kiernan. I loved this book and hated to see it end. I would love to read about what happens next and a prequel of what happened before, would have made a good trilogy I think. If you liked “The Nightingale” or “All the Light We Cannot See” you will like this book too!
Something that brought me joy: The Eagles beating the Patriots, Nick Foles catching a TD pass and the Eagles Defense finally shutting Chris Collinsworth up about all of Brady’s past exploits.
The weather: Apparently we are not having much in the way of winter monsoon rains this year which is a bad thing. But less flowers means less pollen and that is good for my allergies.
Something I accomplished: I cleaned off the top of the computer desk. This desk is used by my husband and son but I have a direct view of it from the kitchen and the clutter was driving me nuts.
Paint Chip Poetry: (It’s a real thing. I got it for Christmas.) The six words I pulled are in italics.
In the mountain town folks drank champagne from antique rose colored glasses and feted the survival of another winter. A small girl sat on the cliff’s edge playing with her sand dollar and dreamt of the ocean in summer while overhead a starship sped by unaware of any season at all.
I enjoyed writing the poem though I don’t see myself becoming a poet. Not enough imagination I fear. But it will be fun to do this once in awhile.
How was your week?
