Wordless Wednesday, of Sorts

Posted in Uncategorized, Wordless Wednesday with tags , , , , , , , on June 16, 2009 by Ms. Ex

I just like it.  It does something to me.

And the next song I just can’t get anywhere.  So here’s a link. It’s worth a listen.

Am I too old for slam dancing?  It makes me want to ride around blasting it with my feet out the window drinking a Milwaukee’s Best.  Maybe I’m just too easy to please.

And probably Tannerleah or Capitalist Lion Tamer will be along shortly with their discerning ears to tell me it’s crap.  But I don’t care, because I love it!

Spuknof is a great local punk band.  The singer’s son goes to my kid’s preschool.  Click on the photo for an insane music video.  Vaguely David Lynch-esque.  Or something.

First Honeysuckle A.K.A. I seriously need a new camera.

And You Thought I Was Weird!

I thought you might like to know what I do in my spare time, like when I’m not tickling unruly children into submission or washing away all thought of my stressful life with boxes of wine.

I fish animal skeletons out of creeks.

I caught a big one, ma!

I caught a big one, ma!

This was a deer who made his untimely exit not quite long enough ago for his flesh to be completely gone.  But he made up for dying young by becoming a biology lesson for my four year old Ethan.  Since we had found the jawbone of a carnivore only minutes before, we compared teeth and learned the difference between them.

I thought I’d draw you in with shock value, then toss you this little kernel of beauty at the end.

My kind of pedicure.

My kind of pedicure.

This is one of my favorite places in the world to be.  It’s Otter Creek on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, about 40 minutes or so from my house and just downstream from the as yet undiscovered rotting deer carcass.  If only there was a “just pause it” for days like this.

Wordless Wednesday: Happy Earth Day!

This is the view I have when sitting at my desk every day typing. Today the sky is black with storm clouds and it's cold, but that gorgeous tree insists that it's spring. Happy Earth day, everyone!

This is the view I have when sitting at my desk every day typing. Today the sky is black with storm clouds and it’s cold, but that gorgeous tree insists that it’s spring. Happy Earth day, everyone!  And also, let’s not forget that the earth is here every day, mmkay?

Wordless Wednesday: For Maddie

Posted in Wordless Wednesday with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2009 by Ms. Ex

Hug your children extra hard today, and be very, very glad that you can.

This sweet girl, daughter of blogger Heather Spohr, passed away yesterday.  The March of Dimes works towards healthy births and healthy babies.  Help them win the fight by making a donation in Maddie’s name.

Update:  Many, many people donated money in Maddie’s name, and many more have signed up to walk in her name for the March of Dimes.  Last I saw, over $25,000 had been given.  What a wonderful gesture.  Let’s hope it helps.

Wordless Wednesday: Morning Snuggles

Morning Tuggles

Morning Tuggles

In the morning, the boys and I usually have snuggles, which sounds like “tuggles” when Ethan says it.  I was already up on this particular morning, so they had to settle for each other.
