Summer and all that goes with it.

Dear Mother Nature,
Thank you for making spiders to keep the grasshopper population in check, and flies to keep the poo in check, and balancing out everything so nicely. I have no idea why you made centipedes (except maybe just to freak me out) but I'm sure they have a purpose. So as to keep them in your circle and not flushed alive please keep them away from me. Thank you, Ashes

I'm noticing that I have an affinity for bugs. We're not talking butterflies and ladybugs, even grasshoppers would be ok. We're talking the nasty creepy bugs. You may remember the scorpion snuggling up to me in bed incident. Luckily the centipede did not decide to snuggle up to me, he just happened to be meandering across the floor.
Having creepy crawlies find their way to me is such a normal occurrence that my dear husband decided to prank me... in the shower.

Jex: Ashes! There's a scorpion on the ceiling!

Ashes: Wha~! *looks up with fear and soap on her face*

Jex: *tosses a bit of twig that has the basic shape of the small brown scorpions that live here at the ceiling so it ricochets into the shower.*

Ashes: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! *notices it's not a scorpion* I'm gonna kill you!

Jex: *laughs his way out of the bathroom*

Oh yes, I forgot my other blog is for the inquiring minds.
