MommyProf was curious about me on the Best Raft Ever. It really is the most amazing water craft ever. I can lie in that raft for up to four hours and never be unhappy. I can lie on my stomach! I can brown without sweating! (well, visibly, anyway) This raft ROCKS.
The MAN asked for something you can only see in Texas. I chose the Texas flag flying at the same height as the American flag. I thought this was really peculiar when I first moved here, but after teaching Texas history, I know now that Texas is the only state allowed to do that as they were an independent country for nine years.** Yup, yup.
He also wanted to see burnt lawns, but since it actually rained on the 4th of July, there really aren't any good ones in my neighborhood.
Ms. H requested the view from my kitchen window. She's likely to be pretty disappointed, I'm afraid:
Carrie asked for something in my favorite color. My favorite color is green, but I really like green, blue and yellow together. This is a nice combination of them all that makes me feel happy and gooey inside when I look at it. It's also my plan for nursery colors:
Star-teacher wanted to see another of Mr. Pigs' body parts. I forwarded the request to him and he promptly puffed up like a blowfish, his ego took it so well. I assured him that I was pretty sure that wasn't what she meant, but the damage was done. I choose for another part of his body....his left kneepit:
Finally, Allison wanted to see my favorite guilty pleasure. I cannot, cannot, cannot stop making and consuming these cookies. I am obsessed. Between these and ice cream, it's a wonder I'm not as big as the side of the house. I just can't stop for anything.
Whew! Hope that was pleasant for all. This concludes my picture posting for summer.
**Breaking news! This is all apparently urban legend! (See comments for details) I am pretty excited about this new development. I plan to inform a lot of native Texans in the near future. (Sorry Katielady and Bubba! Knowledge is power - mwah-ah-ah!)
