Picture Diary

Instead of whining about what I have not been doing lately (training) I decided to show you what else I have been doing.

My garden is growing and very happy! I have about a 2 a day zucchini habit so I am thrilled at how well my plants are producing!

I am so ready for these little guys to be done cooking! I am guessing that I have about 30 watermelons growing on the vines right now. There is a small chance I may have planted too many, but I can live on watermelon in the summer.

This is the bobcat formerly known as Robert Thomas. He was a bobkitten I rescued him from some idiots when he was about 2 days old. I bottled fed him every 3 hours for two weeks before my hometown vet agreed to take him as she already was raising one and had a special license to keep them. His name is now Butterball and he is close to 50 lbs. He has a huge enclosure and has three brothers and sisters to play with. I get to visit him every once in awhile but he is much more aloof and still has enough wild in him that he scares me just enough to be cautious around him.

I got to drive this!! My brother has gotten into collecting Army trucks and they are pretty cool. They are huge and loud and I have not figured out exactly what they are good for, but he loves them. He almost has enough that we could form our own militia.

More pictured to come. I am watching the 2008 Ironman championships and it is really getting me in the mood for triathlon. It is a good thing because I have one in THREE weeks! Yikes!

Totally envious right now, that bobcat is awesome, I want to snuggle him!! AND that garden, man I am dreaming for the day I live in a house (not a condo) and have a yard to make a garden, yummmmmmmmmy!

Hope you are happy and well getting back into training!

I love your bobcat! And garden. I used to have a little garden in St. Louis. Ah, it was so relaxing.
