Have you seen that commercial where the lady jumps into the back of a police car thinking it’s a taxi? That’s how I felt this morning. My wakeup call comes way too early . . especially since I stayed up til after 1 a.m. trying to get more progress done on the baby blanket and the air conditioner woke me up at 5 and the air conditioner repairman tells me “that’s just how that brand sounds”! Vince is calling him to come back today . . it’s way too noisy when it shuts off. Anything that wakes me up has to be really loud!
I was going out, in my usual half awake state, and I saw what I thought was a huge turtle. I ran back in the house to get Vince and to get my camera. What a great blog post I was going to have . . a giant turtle in my yard! At this point, I realized I didn’t have my glasses on. I usually put them on before even getting out of bed and keep them on til I turn off the lights to go to sleep. There’s a good reason why I wear glasses! I told Vince “Come see what’s in the yard!”
He was a bit apprehensive because he wasn’t sure what was out there . . snake, mountain lion, coyote . . could be most anything around here.
But as we cautiously walked up to the turtle, things looked completely different than they had looked without my glasses.
Do you see how it kinda looks like a turtle?
It is not a turtle! It’s a stump! A stump with a “head” that makes it look like a turtle to an old lady without her glasses!
We must get that stump grinder out here and grind down about 200 stumps and I must never again leave the house without my glasses!
