I can now officially enjoy my summer vacation.
|Of course, the week started off on a CUTE note, when I had|
the chance to help three quail chicks get home to their parents.
|I'm assuming (and hoping) that Mom and Dad were in those|
bushes somewhere, waiting for their babies.
|Wild hare, though I prefer to call them wabbits.|
|UGH. Why do I even run in the summer time when we have|
racer snakes, king snakes (that's this one) and...eep...rattlers
in this area?
|Mom got her beads out to make doo-dads for the garden.|
|They're meant to keep the birds from eating her flowers.|
|Millie, getting some love from Dad.|
|Tired baby. She's doing better, though!|
|That book was really good, by the way.|
|Not making fun--just bemused that this lady covered all gym|
equipment with big garbage bags before using.
|A day or two later, Mom ate those red ones right off the vine.|
|All correct, without looking at my book, just using my brain.|
|Coming soon to a Meg's Fancies near you! : P|
|Getting some garden time.|
|When you are friends with music educators.|
|Mom hosted Mexican train on Tuesday.|
|The district office for my new school is located at what used|
to be McClellan Air Force Base, so I went to the Aerospace
|It's not a huge museum, but it's VERY well-done and I spent|
more than an hour wandering around taking pictures.
|I was glad they touched on women, and, in another part of the|
museum, the Tuskegee Airmen.
|Model of a rocket engine.|
|The little guy in red had just yelled, "MOM! I FOUND THE|
BOMB HOLE!!!" leaving his friends amazed, while he ran
off to his next big discovery. Cute. : )
|"How, when and where the USAF obtained it remains classified."|
|F-14 "Tomcat" -- like in Top Gun.|
|The business end of the F-14|
|"Happy Landings Flyboy." : )|
|They have a small memorial rose garden, which is very nice.|
|USAF Brat, retired.|
|One ugly airplane. All those bulges house radar equipment.|
|Of COURSE I went in!|
|This particular plane served in D-Day.|
|This type of helicopter, used for rescue missions in Vietnam,|
is nicknamed the Jolly Green Giant.
|My paper-signing appointment was early, so I went to the gym|
after my museum trip.
|Mom learned how to do fondant decorating. Dad and I got to|
benefit from her education.
|Can you spot the cat?|
|I think she's gained an ounce or two back. She seems better|
hydrated, and she's got a bit of her sassiness back. We go
back to Dr. Ann this week, so hoping the doc is happy!
|I'd rather remember these names than the one of the racist|
asshole who killed them. He's a homegrown terrorist, that's
all there is to it.
|I got to a point in my day where I was falling asleep over this|
stuff--but I really do find it interesting.
|Met Sarah for dinner and a drink. We chose a place in Roseville|
called Ginger's because it's dog-friendly and she had to have
her dog with her.
|This is why I Instagram. : P|
|Me and my girl...|
|This is what you get when you buy imitation M&Ms at Whole|
Foods. They were pretty good, though.
|Friday night goodness.|
|I did some reminiscing in a couple of old scrapbooks.|
|In 1992, Mom and I went to NYC with a group from my 8th|
grade class. Within ten years, these buildings would be gone.
|Mom boiled some chicken, so I gave Millie some of the stock.|
She loves it. She loves actual chicken meat even more.
|It was a Jane Austen kind of day. Later, I watched Sense|
