I am being a lazy ass today. I stayed up way too late, mostly texting and don't ask me why. Two of the people I was texting were Hank and Lily and knowing me as they do, they both asked me what I was doing up so late.
It's a damn rare night when I stay up past eleven, much less...well, almost one.
I tried to sleep late. I really did but I woke up at 7:30 and although I forced myself to lie there for awhile, I finally had to admit defeat and just get up.
And I did take a walk which I thought was going to be a horror because I got started late enough for the heat to really take hold and also, that lack of enough sleep, but it turned out to be a fine walk and I saw the tracks of deer and fox and raccoon as well as my own from yesterday, a nice assortment of butterflies and dragonflies, and some extremely burly tadpoles in a puddle which has been rainfed so well that it's now a small pond with its own ecosystem. And I've had a smoothie and I talked to Mr. Moon and yes, they've already had eggs and pork chops at El Jalisco's for breakfast and are out buying stuff to hunt gator with.
(Don't ask me.)
Their tags don't let them start until 5:00 this afternoon so they're getting all geared up. Pun intended.
Mr. Moon told Owen that if he catches a gator he's going to get me a pair of gator hide boots made and he told Owen that it was a secret but I'm pretty sure that Owen either doesn't get the concept of a secret or, like his Aunt Jessie when she was a child, loves nothing more than to tell secrets and tell them frequently. He keeps reminding me about the gator boots his Boppy is going to have made for me and I'm not really sure how I feel about that. Well, it's a moot point at this point.
I have also talked to Lily this morning. I may go into town later to see Owen at his first real Tai Quan Do class. Is that how you spell it? I don't know. Anyway, I guess there's a thing where in the first class, they let the kids break a board with their hand (Lily assures me it is more like a flatbread than an actual board) and then they give them their first belt. One could hardly envision anything more exciting than this, I suppose. I keep thinking of all the things I could do if I wanted to and the vast number of my choices has me paralyzed. A brand new Bass Pro World opened up in Tallahassee yesterday and the damn governor of the state even showed up. I am pretty sure that's one option I can cross off my list, visiting that store.
Definitely not a bra-worthy event for me.
Anyway, here I am. Hello, hello!
I think it may be nap time.
Much love...Ms. Moon
