Today was one of those days, all too few, in which the perfect late spring conditions are achieved: mildness, lack of wind, clear skies. And so we spent a lot of time in the garden, like many suburbanites.
By now though, R₂ and B₂ know well how to divert me from my purpose. R₂ spotted this greedy lady jumping spider:
She was one of three we spotted scoffing up large. It’s that time of year, after all. Lots of babies to make.
So yeah, I ended up taking a few photos instead of doing useful things like plant spuds and mow lawns. Useful is over-rated.
And I had to take B₂ down to the park for some bike riding and more “soccer practice”.
You see, since she’s started reading Go-Girl Angels, she’s decided she needs to become a football player. Maybe we’ll have to go to the Phoenix soon. I’m just loving that she’s reading on her own and absolutely loving it.
Here’s to summer, then.
