Some Blogthings & Blathering...

What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You
You are sophisticated, modern, and high class.
Your taste is refined, but you are not picky.
You are often the first to try something new.

You are laid back and fairly easy to please.
All you need in life is your friends.
Sometimes you go along to get along... but you don't mind.

You love to be the center of attention. You enjoy entertaining your friends.
You feel lost when no one is interested in you... You're too interesting to be ignored.


What Your Underwear Says About You
You enjoy wearing nice underwear, even if it comes at a hefty price tag.

You're comfortable in your own skin - and don't care to impress anyone.

Thanks, Kristine! :)

The tadpoles have legs! Teeny, tiny ones, but they are there. I managed to find a website last night that states they love to eat... lettuce!! Supposedly they are almost as popular a pet as goldfish according to that site... Odd, but whatever! I used to catch a bullfrog once a year for the frog jumping contest at our town festivities. I won once for largest frog and once for longest jump. My neighbor would help me catch them from the bay out back of my parents' house. I always let them go right after the contest though. Don't think Mom would have been ok with a pet bullfrog... Dad & I caught 7 from the pool, and I have them in a Beta breeding tank that I took the divider out of atm. When they start getting a little bigger I'll have to put a few back into the pool. In the meantime I think it's good for the kids to see them developing. Kind of a summer science project... I can just hear Micaila in September... "This summer we raised tadpoles..." LOL

I've become an Assistant Gardener over at Digital Scrap Garden. I'll be helping Dawne out where I can while Purple Frog and Flutterby are busy with their lives. I'll be hosting my own color challenge, Cate's Garden Rainbow, starting Aug 1st. And, I'm guest hosting Flutterby's Quote Challenge for Aug as well. I'm thinking maybe a template or word art pack as the posting prize for the Quote Challenge, and a template or paper pack prize for the Color. I hope to see many of you over there! We're a very friendly and laidback group - no drama.

I've still got sinus/headache/jawache issues going on. I need to get to a doctor, but... I all ready have an appt with an ENT specialist on the 29th because of my parotid tumor. (It's benign.) I guess it really is time to think about getting it taken care of. I mean - hey - it's only been there for at least 6 or 7 years now... (And, don't worry Dawne - I would only be away for a day or two if it ends up being a surgery.)

I hadn't created a LO for Kara in a while, and decided it was time.

Gotta' run thought. I have 4 hrs of work today, and then 3 days off again. We're hoping to do Brenden's bday party at the Park tomorrow (and meet Kristin, Brooke & Skye!)weather permitting. Otherwise I'll probably have to have it here.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

I used to go out and try to find ponds with tad poles as a child. We live in the city and I don't think there are places to go do that with my kids.
