If any of you are Muslims in Toronto, you should be buying books off dd's old friend at the book fair!
It's three days to Christmas, and dh is vacuuming up all the ladybugs that have invaded our house...
Monica_in_SwitzerlandMy dad was looking at the Christmas tree one year, a few days post-Christmas. It appeared to be covered in bugs. Upon closer inspection, he saw it was actually COVERED IN TICKS!!! The heat had caused all the tick eggs (?) to hatch. Needless to say, he got the tree out of the house in less than a minute!

PeachyDoodleYuck!!! The ladybugs are our annual winter residents, not related to the tree. They are a nuisance, but fortunately they are not gross like ticks! Or the stinkbugs that were prevalent at our old house!

Last day of Introduction to Herpetology! It’s been a really awesome experience for DD to get to teach this class and me to sit in!
RootAnnDD#3 was freaking out that she might miss the last class due to a "no internet" message. (Cat unplugged the router.) She's pumped for class today (as always)!

It's time to get a haircut! I just set my hair on fire reaching for something next to the stove when the front burner was lit under the teapot. Luckily I caught it in time and only burned the ends. I hate that smell, though!
EmilyGFYowsers! I'm glad you are OK!

First snowstorm since DD was two. She is 10 now and over the moon.
Summertime break: Pack away academics and build a house.
