Randomosity

To begin, let me give you the glads...
...now I will show you the love...
...you see the heart in that lake "greenery", right? 

Now a reminder to show your felines some love...
...but make sure to follow the directions...
...and be sure to know what kind of cat you are dealing with.

Meanwhile, in the back yard, the birds are up to no good (and are obviously friends of the barn swallows)...
...just digging some holes to fluff themselves in. Dirt baths? Are you kidding me?!?! I clearly can't count on Amandequin to be an effective scarecrow...
...She's too busy feeding a woodpecker...AS ONE DOES! 

I think in this case, two out of three might actually be bad...

Random intermission

I just remembered that it’s actually Wednesday, which may be a date late for random, but now we are closer to the weekend! Get yourself a treat to celebrate...live on the edge and try a s’more made with a peanut butter cup!

Rehydrated random

Once again, I did not realize how many important photos I had stockpiled on my phone, so let's get right to it...
Hey Britain! Thanks for suggesting you have us covered...
...but are those what you consider "bigger boobs" over there? Or is that actually a photo of what your sorcery powers can make 38DD look like? What kind of voodoo magic are you practicing, or what is the median bra size in your country? I will just be here looking all stylish and versatile!
Seriously, this is just a simple exercise t-shirt I bought. I considered returning it, as it seemed unnecessary for my simple walking workout regime. However, when I went to check the price again,  and saw all I was getting for under $15, I ripped those tags right off! Stay tuned for my selfie! AND, if I need more inspiration, I can find my "daily dose of superhero"...
...in a ten mushroom blend? I have absolutely been looking in all of the wrong places! Speaking of things I wasn't looking for, and could have missed due to some great camouflage...
...just take a few seconds and let some captions for this come to you, then share them with me! Perhaps now you are feeling saucy?
Don't hate! My friends assured me it would be everything I hoped for. I am not too proud to admit that they were correct!

In closing, remember that time my idyllic vision of Mary Ingalls was sullied? 
Her blind eyes were less creepy than whatever is going on there. Anyway, I did not even want to consider what precious moment was going to be tarnished next. Aaaack!
This is not at all what "Don't you forget about me" meant to be remembered as! Hold me Kari!

My next guest needs some introduction

Did you ever try to explain something, and words just don't help to clear up any confusion? It's almost as if what seems like a simple path from point A to point B in your mind is a circuitous route to nowhere to other people. Eventually it just feels like...
...but, keep trying!
Here's where we begin the introduction. This is Amandequin...
...as you can see, she is super festive and patriotic. She gets a little nervous when people try to understand why she is here (see above). I can give you some key plot points of the story if you promise not to think too much or try too hard to have this make sense...to you.

Amandequin spent several eternally six year old years living with her dads just outside of Boston. Her sense of style and love for her brother Bruno (as well as her dads' sense of humor) could be seen in many a holiday greeting card...


...until last summer...
...on Cape Cod. With this being a new year and all, her dads thought maybe it was time for Amandequin to light up someone else's life for awhile. Enter my daughter and me. We were busy being pampered at Amandequin's house and I must have let my gaze linger too long in her direction. Her dads thought she was the muse I needed, the spark that might breathe some life back into this old blog of mine. And here we are! She really has gotten to work around this place.

She loves Lily (as well as her sweet hand me down clothes)...
...but sadly the feeling is far from mutual. Rescue dogs took more of an interest in her as they are more familiar with her plight.
So far the worst thing for this Red Sox girl has been how helpless she feels in a NY team home.
(You can see the shame in those eyes even though she won't turn her head.) For the most part, she is enjoying her new adventures, like knee boarding...
...and kayaking!

I let her start her own instagram account if you'd like to check out more!

Random (lack of title ideas)

I think I went four weeks without peanut m&m's, and when I had some today, I did not truly enjoy them! So now I feel like a...
...maybe...
?
Or just...
I wanted to believe that this flag was not spelled incorrectly.
May I present exhibit A?
I only have this view because if you made eye contact these ladies approached too closely, too quickly for my daughter's liking, and we had just narrowly escaped the worst version of the Statue of Liberty ever. I wonder how this little friend enjoyed his city visit!
 We saw these at the thruway stop today...
...I do appreciate the alternative to folks leaving pets in hot cars...
...but I can't help thinking there is room for error. Maybe it is all a ploy developed by some nefarious cats?
Just when I started to get bored with the lack of offerings in my weekly coupon sections, the facebook ads that keep popping up have become even more aggressive...
 ...and creepy! Dammit! Mary was my favorite of the Ingalls, and now she has been sullied! I hope none of my other childhood favorites turn to crap-
Come. On. Granted neither thing smells good. Of course there was never brown play-doh when I was trying to make realistic hamburger patties back in the day. 

If you're looking for me, I'll have my nosed buried in a book that cannot be judged by its cover.

Random sitting

Things have been busy around here for the past week. We were watching a little doggy friend.That may sound easy, but he can be super hard to see...
...as far as he knows...
 ...and he was sassy too!

Another week randomly flying by

Yes, it's that most wonderful and shiny time of the year again!
I can't hog all of the fun for myself. I just want to make sure the rest of the neighbors get to experience some barn swallow joy. The fascinating mud nests, the thrill of dodging the swooping (let alone the pooping). 

I went to visit the aviary population in their own habitat. Apparently the swallows received word about my arrival...
...cold shoulder wing, much? How about the Great Blue Heron rookery? (Yeah, my friend is a big time birder, so I have the lingo as well as knowing who I was looking at.)
Feeding time!
Speaking of feeding time, this was a yummy lunch - chorizo and potato taco...
...and then my first trip to a noodle house for dinner... 
...the food came practically before we ordered! Sorry, Baxter, no doggy bag (or at least not one I was willing to share).
At least you came inside with time to spare...
Pepe Le Pew!!! Apparently my cousin and his family have Wild Kingdom going on in their back yard, even if I don't have all relevant supporting photographic evidence here to prove it. I can show that sometimes even three year olds have their own creepy little monkeys...
 ...I remain in awe of how long these folks have kept track of these tiny little friends! Well this has been me...

...interacting as myself!
