What I Did Last Summer
Walked in the trails behind the house. I know them better than my left hand.
Found this. It’s Old Jonas’ House. Currently, a family of raccoons resides in it. But they’re messy folks and I expect them to be evicted soon. If you’re interested in the location . . . just call.
Stole a few berries from Mother Nature
Saw some art exhibits (this one is called “Family rides Dragon”)
Saw yo mama the llama at the Zoo. Watch out, they spit.
Cooked Birthday breakfasts
Cooked Birthday suppers
Fed my kid
Fed him some more.
Cleaned my kid. About every ten minutes.
Kept my kid from falling off dangerous precipices. About every 10 minutes.
Got new piercings
Taught my kids amazing new skills. Like this.
Went to a circus.
Ran the Warrior Dash over death-defying obstacles. Fire was involved. And running.
Met my new, little niece, Valentine Greer. She’s awesome.
Saved a bird. Actually, I watched as my brother saved a bird. I like to think the bird uses his second chance at life to improve the lives of birds everywhere, and improves man/bird relations.
And . . . I got a new job, finished writing a book, read tons of books, and met the amazing Piper Bayard and Jennifer Joseph.
Can a girl ask for more? I think not.
What did you do last summer?
