Originally, this was to be a post entitled Procrastinators Post. However, while standing outside in the garden to get pictures I nearly stepped on a black snake trapped in the fence.
I felt bad because I knew he was going to die if we didn't cut him loose, but I just knew I wouldn't be able to get close to it without acting like a girl. Thank goodness my sweet (and very brave!) neighbor, Helen, had just pulled up from a long weekend away! She managed to cut the snake out, even though the snake was opening his big mouth and hissing very mean-like.
Without further adieu, the tweeked Original Post......
If there was one thing in the world that I wish I could stop doing, it'd probably be procrastinating crying like a girl in the face of adversity.).
Then again, I take it back.
Procrastinating Finding snakes in your yard makes life adventurous and fun.
For instance, I should be packing for a trip I am about to take. But instead I was outside taking pictures of my garden.
This isn't an ordinary trip. Its a trip in which I have the privilege of leaving to take a side trip. Only to come back to my first trip, just in time to pack up and make the trip home.
Well, try packing for it.
Especially since these trips couldn't be more polar opposite in the area of climate.
I heard a rumor that it was 113 in the southern AZ town I will be visiting a mere 72 hours from now.
But its a dry heat. With poisonous snakes.
I am about to enter into The Land of Many Great Hair Days, and y'all know I like me some good hair.
I despise snakes.
Let's see...what else can I tell you about, since I'm killing time here...
I am growing a tomato in my garden!
Yes, you read that right. I am growing one lonely tomato in the garden, but I love him all the same.
Unfortunately, by the time he's ripe he may be snake food I'll be sipping poolside margaritas in the desert sun.
We have a cantaloupe and a few cucumbers as well.
Thank the good Lord that I can just buy my veggies from the grocer down the street, cuz I can’t handle the reptiles we would certainly starve.
All right. All right! I'm going...
....to go bake something delicious for my neighbor. If you only knew how many times she has bailed me out of crazy situations...
