Things are considering greening up a bit. I worked outside for a while yesterday, as the temp turned to about 56 degrees. And, a riddle for you - an easy one, I promise! Here goes:
Q: When is a rock...NOT a rock...?
A: When it's a TURTLE!
Okay - pretty stupid riddle, I know! But I was certainly surprised while taking a break from raking a few leaves. I took a 'breather' and heard a rustling noise from our woods, and when I saw the leaves actually begin to move, I went to investigate, and found a lovely large turtle! Headed north, like all the turtles seem to do around here. South is the direction of the nearest water, so I'm a bit confused (or maybe the turtles around here are confused?).
A nice sized specimen, I will say. I posed him several times, but he refused to show his face, until I left the area. As soon as I returned with my camera, he tucked himself into his house once more.
Not very sociable, is he??
Below - a few shots of our kitchen re-do in progress - the counter top is mostly gone...the countertop guy never showed, so Mr. Wonderful decided to do it himself with materials bought from a Big Box store.
Whoops - Homer is hanging on for dear life - just like I am in this mess! I'm sure it will be another week before the laminate we ordered comes in! I know I'll live through this, and it will be another big dream come true once its all completed!!!
