Well Yesterday I claimed I would show some pics of all the new pets that now live in our house with Heath, Peanut and I.
After today I plan to stop mentioning the pets until one dies or we get a new one or I am really desperate for something to write about.
First the Anoles George and Mater. They change colors so I have no idea who is who. You can see one close up here and the other ones head on the rock below.
Now the two ladies are Caroline and Wendy. I’m not sure we ever decided who was who with them so I’ll go ahead and declare that Wendy likes to hide behind the Rome building.
And Caroline has taken the hole in the rocks. You can just see her head here peeking out.
Sometimes Caroline misses Wendy and invites her over to visit but the rock hole is pretty crapmed.
The ladies are looked over by Jumpy. Jumpy may eat them some day but lately he has been preoccupied with making the tank his own. He likes to pick up the plants in his mouth and move them around.
Our last and so far most uninteresting guy is Sam. Sam is very shy and hides under a plant or air filter most of the time. I keep thinking he will get comfortable and start to swim around like he did in the store but who knows.
Someday Sam will be a bullfrog but I guess it could take a couple years. He has some little feet already but that is it so far. It will be cool to monitor his progress if he does not croak first.
Well last night when Heath and Peanut got home we got a drink and headed to the woods south of our neighborhood for a nature hike.
It gets dark so fast and seemed like the sun was setting as we started walking. Peanut’s imagination was in full swing and we collected baby dragons and all sorts of weird things at first but then the nature hike was completely replaced by some sort of pirate mission. We all had swords (sticks) and occasionally had to fight off the bad guys (hitting bushes with our sticks) much of the conversation was about our names. I was Red Beard, Peanut was Captin Peanut and Heath was either Mama Pirate or The Wench depending on who you asked. We eventually found some sand and dug for treasure (rocks) and then our swords became horses and we rode them out of the woods and back to the car just in time for it to get really dark.
On the way home we got a few groceries then took some leftover baja chipotle chicken and made two big pans of chicken nachos. Peanut had a few then decided he would rather eat some leftover ham.
After Dinner Peanut took a bath and played with his construction trucks and men in the tub. Then we watched a bit of Go Diego Go and Winnie the Poo. At bedtime we read a story and Peanut went to sleep. I went downstairs and made some progress on the ottoman and Heath got ready for her soccer game.
