Marina cleaned the chicken pen at the Children's Zoo on Friday without supervision. Shouldn't they compensate me for that? This internship wasn't cheap.
After a welcome chill at the beginning of the week, we are now back to your typical hazy, hot, humid August. Bleh.
I've begun drawing my comic strip birth. Don't worry, nothing of a graphic nature. Except that pictures are technically graphic. Hmmm...Everything is G-rated. Anyway, I'm trying to pin down Sierra for the name. If you remember, a long time ago in May, adding her character was her birthday present. Now that I finally have a sketch of the baby, I keep showing her and asking, "What's her name?" I've gotten Rose, Janie, Bloom, Star, Flower, and now Daisy. I don't think she grasps the importance of this occasion. I'm biting my lip to control my naming urges. I create characters just to name them. I love naming things. Adam was so lucky. He got to name everything.
We have been getting the oddest assortment of red and black squirrels. It makes me think some of those Malaysian Tree Squirrels escaped North from the zoo. Ours seem to be mostly black with some red patches. One is all black but half of its tail is red. I must try to get a picture of one of them.
