Finally! I Have My Camera Back. Frog in the House.

This lady had my camera for a week! You can see by the glasses that she's not a regular person. And look at that slobery baby, I still have days like this.

So, our cat was making a racket around a fan in our house last night. My 17 yr. old checked it out and said, "There's toad in the fan"

So, I had him bring it out on the deck where I was, poor thing, I thought he'd be better off escaping out there! Then I remembered how the 21 yr. old brought a FROG in and put it in our fish tank several weeks ago. By George! It must've been him! He can now escape the not so great indoors.

Hi you poor little sweety, hopefully there'll be more insects out here for you to eat!


Awwww! You have some nice color!



Not to worry, as I sat there lost in my blog reading (I love you guys!). He was gone within the hour. Such a quiet and stealth little guy. I imagined him hopping around our gardens gorging on whatever it is that he gorges on. Godspeed frog! And now that my mother...uh, that lady 4 houses away has returned my camera...I will get around to showing you my estate/auction stuff from last week....it's good.
Oh! And Renee at Cottage Lifestyle (http://cottagelifestyle.blogspot.com/2009/07/gifts-from-garage-sale-gal-and-award.html) gave me an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE award. Some of you know that I have a program in Al Anon. This means the world to me as so much of my recover IS having an attitude of gratitude. So, for me today, I am grateful for all of my family and their love. I love them just as they are! I love her blog too!

  2. "And now that my mother...uh, that lady 4 houses away has returned my camera..."

    I love and laugh when I read a phrase like that! So, you got a sense of humor, right? That, and very little else will get you through ANYTHING! IMO, that is.

  6. Good going froggy! Big bad old fan! I feel like I and my camera are joined at the hip. I am always thinking is that a blogworthy picture? Funny isn't it? Before I started blogging I probably had taken 6 pictures in my whole life! Today I was unpacking the tomatoes from the farmers market and thinking how pretty they would be in a picture.

  7. Oh dear, I would not have remained calm, I would have had to swoon, then call the police and find the right frog-chasing outfit before they arrived; no, not at all fit for this sort of wildlife encounter!

    Your blog is lovely, thank you for having me, I look forward to reading along!

  8. I think you've created a new saying, "there's a frog in my fan"- meaning an unexpected turn of events.
    Enjoy! :)

  16. Oh my gosh........I'd have been doing a bit of squealing....! I'm just not a insect/little animal/creature kind of gal....it would have jumped right on me....I'm just sure of it! :-) When we first moved into this house we had a TON of them....We have one of those boxes that your hose rolls up into....I opened it....and one jumped right out at me...YIKES!

    Thanks for the Bday wishes! I so appreciate it....
