my life in pictures and words


life rearranged

Linking up with Life Rearranged to give you a glimpse of my week, in cell phone photos.

we have lots of weeds so we wanted to put down some weed and feed.  but one of the requirements is that we have to put it down when there is no rain in the forecast.  unfortunately all last week there was rain in the forecast, however, it didn’t rain AT.ALL.  so i finally got to mow the lawn and the next day i put down the weed and feed.

on saturday paul and i went to home depot to get some supplies for a project, which will be on the blog soon-ish.

we were outside for most of saturday and half of sunday and i got nine bites.  go me!

sunday evening paul and i went outside around 9:00 pm to star gaze.  since it was still too light out we just did some bird watching.  i sat out there for about seven minutes and i got three more bites.  yes, i am the winner.

we went back out at 9:30 pm but as soon as we placed the telescope down, we felt some rain drops and saw the clouds rolling in.  so we tried to gaze at the one star, that we could still see, from inside.  but the clouds were too fast for us and we gave up.

the next night we tried again.  this time all we could see was venus.  it was super humid and i was getting eaten alive so i gave in and went back inside.  *side note: i saw a whole bunch of fireflies.  it was freaking awesome!  i wanted to catch them and watch them glow but i didn’t.  maybe next week i’ll do it.

i planted these beautiful flowers that we got from lowes.  they’re called summer blues larkspur.  they’ll grow to about 15″-18″ tall and about 12″ wide.  i’m so excited for them to grow, grow, grow!

wednesday night i did a sleep study since paul thinks i have sleep apnea.  it was weird sleeping with all these wires hooked up to me.  i even had a wire thing that went up my nose and a wire thing that went on my finger.  after it was over, the guy took off all the wires and i was left with a whole bunch of “glue” on my head that they used to keep the wires in place.  it was not a pretty sight.  blech!  it was a neat experience but one that i hope i won’t have to do again.  i’ll follow up with the doc sometime mid august.  if i remember i’ll keep you updated.

a not as bitter and very sweet blood donation today.  3:52.  i’m slacking!  haha. just kidding.  but i’m still donating pretty quickly so i’m happy for that.  this marks no. 6 out of 8.  only 2 more til i hit a gallon!  yay!!!  maybe i’ll get to do that this year!!!

lookey lookey what we got in the mail!!!  yes, please!  i’ll visit chipotle any day!!

  1. Insect repellant? lol. We have had a hard time stargazing here too, then when we finally get something focused and try to show my daughter, she knocks the telescope and it’s all over. Oh well, some time right?
