Saw this awesome skink in my garden the last few days, but he was always too quick to snap a picture of before. Today CommonLaw ran to "omg get the camera, quick!" while Pheonix blocked the escape path. Not that Pheonix even saw the lizard until after I got my shot and it ran, successfully, under a log. Isn't that blue amazing? Found this salamander under a log, I always check under a few when I'm hiking. Again, Pheonix, Mr. Oblivious, stepped right on the poor thing before I could grab him, but never noticed it. Apparently he is not the hunter of the family. The salamander is actually kinda, well, ugly, I mean, I love nature, but I only took this picture because I've never seen one that color before. They're always bright orange or brown orange. I thought this was an albino but it's eyes were black. It was more interesting than eew so I took the picture, and then replaced his shelter carefuly. I guess Lilly was doin some yard work today which tuckered her out. Cute! I did no work at all this weekend, just a little gardening and picture taking. Mostly just enjoyed spending time with my honey, as today is our seven year anniversary. We talked a little about our dream wedding, the one whose date is known but not the year, haha. Those things are expensive! I would rather not wear a dress, but if I do I like the idea of a midevil style one. My Mom, the master seamstress, is of course the only person I would trust to make me a dress I would like. Anyway, as I've told people before, I'm married in my heart, and I don't need Uncle Sam's stamp of approval. I have the best friend in the universe, ultimate confidant, sweet, wonderful man who makes me feel safe and loved, all wrapped up in a gorgeous (and cute!) package, and I love him so much it makes me get a lil puddly in the eyeballs just thinkin about it. So cheers to you baby! I love you! Happy seven year anniversary and more to come, luck and joy on our life together.
