It's the perfect weather to nestle in the shade of a giant tree,
And explore entire microcosms in the neighbor's yard.
Iraq is growing like one of summer's beautiful flowers. Sometimes she is sweet and brilliant,
while other times, she can be single-minded, nervous and prone to stinging those that try to redirect her attentions from her passions.
But we're hanging in there.
The Skink is doing well. She's apparently going through "a stage." She is testing her limits (and mine) by screaming when she doesn't get what she wants. If I ask her to do something she doesn't want to do, she stomps her little food obstinately.
She knows what she wants and what she doesn't want. Sometimes she wants to hit the precious little boy next door, just to hear the poor little guy cry. This fascinates her. She also tries to mimic his cry, and will run to his mommy for comfort... though the entire thing is a ruse.
I don't mind her running somewhere else for comfort, but I do mind the screaming, stomping and hitting! She's been in time out about 6 times so far today. She doesn't seem to mind. At least nowhere near as much as I do.
As for me, I'm doing better every day (as far as I can tell). My test results showed that my potassium was dangerously low and causing problems with my heart and other muscles. Now that I'm taking enough potassium and iron to poison a small elephant, my health seems to be slowly returning. Yay! Hopefully we'll got to go camping again soon since I seem to be on the mend. I'm aching to sit by a glowing camp fire - to smell the pungent smoke from the burning wood and to taste juicy hotdogs fresh off the grill. I can't wait to go to sleep with the sounds of crickets and rustling leaves in my ears, and wake to a fairy world covered in sparkling dew.
