In fact, yesterday gave us a bit of a break with just some sprinkles in the afternoon and evening. Magnum and I took China for her beauty walk in the morning. China says, "Oops, where'd the trail go??"
All this Nature's Wrath business is a good reminder of how little we are, and I am thankful for the flood mitigation that actually did its job.
Speaking of little things, Vivarium de Meego continues to progress. We have critters!
Three Fire Bellied Toads have moved in! We have no idea what sex any of them are, but Meego says these two shown above often do this bit where the one on the left sits at the edge of the water and the larger one on the right sits in the water and they have a stare down.
It's probably either foreplay or a fight brewing. Once they make the next move, maybe we'll know boys, girls, or what.
Chaco and Wolfgang both graced me with their presences yesterday. Chaco stopped by for a haircut, catching up, and cash. Wolfgang and I went out for a few provisions. All the while he animatedly told me how much he's enjoying living on campus and new friends and activities.
After three weeks in, he's also ready to declare mechanical engineering as his major (squeee!). And he happily told me about a new girlfriend while I tried not to be too prying. Figured I'd just lurk her on facebook later... which I did. Mom-approved so far.
Geesh, how did our parents function before the internet?
