Summer: Hot with a Fever

What an eventful and uneventful week. On my first day back, I attended my sister's high school graduation. It actually wasn't boring like I thought it was going to be. It was a good time. On that same day, I took my family to the airport so THEY could get to Indiana for my brother's graduation form Notre Dame. Well, you know what? They didn't get to go to Gatorland...

I was debating whether to post this, but here it is. Yeah, I wrestled an alligator.
I like the goat better and wanted to take him home with me. I liked him so much that I spent $2 on a cone of food to feed him.

I haven't been writing or doing any projects since I got back because I've been sick in bed for the past few days. You know I'm sick when I don't even have an appetite for my mother's homemade Texas Chili. Al this sleeping is making me crazy. I hate not being able to get up and go for a walk or do something constructive in the middle of the day. I'm just in the "I'm sick, and sick people lie in bed all day until they better" mode.

I guess it hasn't been so terrible for me once I think that there isn't much to do outside anyway. I thought he NYC rain was going to kill me, but perhaps it's worse expecting to come home to sunny Florida weather, only to have it pour nonstop since arriving here. The national news actually reported today on how much rain we've been getting. Is it wrong to expect just a little sun from my home state?

Oh, some good news. I finally got a picture of a project I did a while ago for my friend. I made a stencil and spray painted a t-shirt. And the silly guy didn't even bother to iron it...
The back even has little drum sticks on them.
Today, I was able to get up and start construction on some bows for Keiko. I just can't finish them until I've received the rest of my packages from college. I really hope they come soon.

In conclusion: First 3 days-lots of events, next 6 days-lots of sleeping, still waiting for packages, still waiting for the rain to stop and the sun to come out, still waiting to get better, so no great outfit for today.

I just caught up with the past three or four blog posts I hadn't read yet...I'm so proud of you! You have come so far already, and you keep getting better and better. Great job on all of the reconstructions!

I hope you enjoy Florida. I know the rain is a pain in the butt, but Florida needs it. It was horribly dry while I was there. I was scared there would be more wildfires.

p.s. if you want to visit some more goats (and horses, chickens, cows), you're welcome to make a trip to my mom's ranch;) It's not too far away!
