Photo Blog January 9, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — MM @ 10:57 am

I figured out how to upload pictures from my phone directly to Flickr, so I am going to try taking pictures every day and posting them there, kinda like a photo blog. I know a couple people who do this and it’s pretty interesting to see what they take pictures of sometimes, lol. I subscribe to theirs through Google Reader, so if you have a blog reader thing, I think you can subscribe. Anyway, here’s the link!

Peed on a stick

Sort of.  I was nauseous a couple of times, but never threw up.

Roadrunner October 9, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — MM @ 10:15 am

So, yesterday as I was making lunch I heard this noise outside and this is what I see on our porch…

It’s a roadrunner, how cool!  After I take a few pictures through the glass, I try to open the door and go outside to get some better pictures, but it runs off.  I go back upstairs and a little while later I hear knocking sounds.  So, I go downstairs and he’s back and trying to get in the house!

This went on for the rest of the day until I left to get the kids.  Every time I would go down stairs he would run off and fly over the fence to the cow pasture behind our house.

Now, he’s back again doing the same thing as yesterday!  Weirdo bird, lol.
