Pop Up Storms

One of the problems with pop up storms is it is often hard to get information on them, as weather announcers like to just blanket statement whatever will probably form. It is not as if they can observe a weather system’s behavior while it is heading towards an area. When the weather is ripe for …

Scorpion Season

It was 1 am. I was sitting in the rocking chair trying to talk myself out of insomnia when i saw movement on the floor to my left. Because the scorpions coloring often blends in with the pattern of the floor boards i have become extremely sensitive to movement in my peripheral vision. The moment …

The Disappearing Poo

I have noticed for a while now that Cashew is no longer eating her turds. She poops and runs off rather than turning and eating it. I was thrilled by this and wanted her to keep it up so i didn’t call any attention to the change and pretended i didn’t notice. I expected that …

They are operating business as usual while i stress and fret over work and school and sometimes that’s very helpful. i cancelled our subscription to the fedex food delivery service. The price for foods …

The Dogs are Home

I’ve procrastinated on writing this post because i don’t know how. I haven’t the words. I’ve decided to keep this post short because otherwise it’ll never get written. I actually retrieved the dogs one day before the window unit was rendered functional. Upon installation it was discovered that an electrician was needed. Once again i …

Bud the Armadillo

There were two armadillos that frequented our property. One was a small armadillo; quick and very people shy. The other one was a large armadillo with a signature puncture in the side of its shell that seemed to have healed long ago. He had something like a keloid hanging out of it but there was …
