Good morning, Kitschies! Happy Labor Day to my fellow American bloggers. Happy Monday to everybody else. How was the weekend? Mine was pretty good...Saturday night was derby practice. I took a couple good falls (if a fall can ever be "good") and am super sore today. I'm working on a couple deep bruises which should make me look official in a couple days. Sunday, the fam went to the Jemez for a picnic and some fun in the mountains. It was lightly raining when we got there and it was so nice and cool!! Once it cleared up, it warmed up a bit, but not so much that it was hot. It was nice to get out of the city, even if it was just for a few hours. And the car rides to and from were so quiet! I don't know what we did different, but there was no screaming or crying in the car - I'd almost say that was the best part of the trip. LOL
I thought I'd do something a little different today and review our family's month of August...in pictures! Ready? OK!
the bestie and I went to our first Roller Derby bout and OMG...I was hooked! As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to do it. Now, with about 5 practices under my belt, I'm loving it. I'm sore as hell, but it's a good sore. I haven't lost any weight, but I *have* lost a pant size!
collared lizard. These guys are so cool because they're pretty big (this one was at least 8 inches from head to tail). The hubs says he used to see these all the time out at the volcanoes, but I've only seen 2 or 3.
Lesser Goldfinch hanging out in the tree!
Wind Scorpion stayed under a small glass bowl overnight and we finally let him go outside. *shiver* I didn't like finding that at. all.
That was August...it already seems so long ago! There are things we did that I don't have pics for (like going to the aquatics center and celebrating my birthday) but I didn't want to bore you with *everything*.
Enjoy your day! Relax, if you can, and try to stay indoors where it's a bit cooler. It's cooling down a bit here in NM - and I am not complaining about that one bit!
