I am such a slacker. Rene told me at 10:00 am she was taking a half day vacation this afternoon, and because I'm terribly impressionable I asked for it too and was out of there an hour later. In my defence though, I finished and submitted my law assignment since I've been home.

Then I uploaded a few more pictures, and so now, in very random fashion, I present the last week or so of my strangely unpeopled life.

I think I mentioned in my journal that on my way to work one morning this week I saw a dog with his head stuck out the sunroof, checking out the state of the world. Too bad I couldn't get a picture of the car in motion because his ears were flapping all over the place in the wind!

Next up we have my much maligned (usually by me) and barely mentioned cat, Churchie. I caught her in a sweet moment, most of which coincidentally coincide with her napping hours.

Go on! Especially when it wakes her up from a np.

How'd you like to have that cuddly thing sleeping beside your face every night! Nah, I kid. She's a sweetheart. Really!

Here I would just like to point out that the two butterfly gardens I planted this spring have officially attracted their first butterfly.

Don't blink, or you'll miss it.

Hey! Remember how excited I was about eating my first meal from the garden? The beets, spinach and beet greens?

Speaking of my vegetable garden, I wasn't kidding when I said the butternut squash are taking over. Here you can see them rampaging like mongol hordes over my spinach, beets and carrots, and having laid waste to everything else in their path, now attempting to crawl over my back lawn!

For the sake of comparison, this is the difference 12 days can make.

A closer look (peer and squint, it helps) at the not yet defeated smaller plants, putting up a valiant defense.

So, now I am officially jealous.

P.S. "rampaging mongol hordes" ... tee hee!

If it would make you less jealous, I'd be happy to send you my Churchie!

She is beautiful. But I'm jealous of the whole deal, veggie patch and all.

No no - send Chruchie to ME!!! (And is it just the angle of the camera, or does she have HUGE teeth??)

I think it's the angle because while they're awfully sharp, I've never noticed that they're particularly large. She looks like a freaking sabre-tooth there!

More kitty pictures! I'm going to overdose from furry cuteness.

I know! There's been a real glut of kitties lately!

Heh--that's just what Scooter looks like when you touch his tummy or wake him up, too.

She actually does like me rubbing her belly, but this is pretty much her instant reaction to anything I do, up to and including walking within 50 feet of her!

I love Churchie! How did you come up with her name?

I didn't - I bought her for my ex-boyfriend Derek when we were living together and then inherited her when we split. He named Churchie after Churchie LaFemme, the tortoise in the Pogo comics. I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me quickly!

I bought her for my ex-boyfriend Derek ...

Ugh. I mean "adopted". Bought sounds like I picked her up at the Wal*Mart or something.

Wow, your garden is doing so well :)

And that is such a cute pic of Churchie
