I have a story.
monday night I
somehow convinced [J] to grill us brats for dinner. this is only a feat because it was approximately 9PM. a tad too late to be firing up the grill. but he agreed. and I insisted, I help. I opened the door to our balcony/patio ..and straight at my face, comes a MASSIVE FLYING OBJECT. I fall over backwards to escape. literally – right over onto the ground. while screaming my brains out, of course. [our neighbors, I’m sure, think I was being attacked which I kind of was].
then the search began ..what the heck just flew into our apartment?
not a minute later, from a shelf in our office emerges ..
NO BIG DEAL – just a preying mantis.
um nice of you to visit, but will you kindly exit as quickly as you entered? thanks.
[*editor’s note: notice he’s staring down the
camera me. I was slightly terrified he’d fly at my face again].
we can call that my excitement for the week. my blood pressure is yet to return to normal.
but I have a couple other gems to share ..
these wooden wine racks [J] made.
little does he know since building these, I’ve started a list of projects for him. we’ll call it: [J]’s man list.
and last night, this was the scene in our apartment ..
[J] took off for “guy’s night”. and I got comfy at home, on the couch. for a minute or two. when I took the wine glass + bottle to our bedroom, set them on my night stand ..& drank while watching TV in bed. judgers be gone, we’ve all done it.
isn’t the name of the wine fitting? lazy bones.
also follow along with me on instagram for photos throughout the week.
have the absolute best weekend.
[and please, wish my fantasy football team good luck. did I mention I’m playing in a league with 12 other bloggers? I clearly overestimated my understanding of football, and may have underestimated theirs. it’s stressful. welcome week two ..].
