the fly swatter
The flies have been really bad this summer.
After Joel's party we all of a sudden had TONS in our house.
They are very annoying.
Especially if you happen to be trying to take a nap
and you keep waking up because something is buzzing around your head.
They got so bad that we finally had to pull out the fly swatter.
I must have made the mistake of leaving the fly swatter
in arms length of Mr. Levi.
The other day when I turned around from doing dishes
he had taken over the job of swatting the flies.
He was even holding in by the handle.
I let him keep it for a while because he was so proud of himself.
And at least he wasn't sucking on it, right?
When I turned around again he had scooted over to where our dog, Lucy, was.
Lucy is a farm dog, so she doesn't usually get to be in the house.
But, when it is really hot (like now) or really cold we let her in the mud room.
Levi gets so excited when she comes in.
He lets her slobber all over his face.
It is kinda gross, but I'm glad they like each other.
Anyway, when I turned around again,
he was using the fly swatter to hit Lucy.
He was hitting her right on the head and she didn't even seem to care.
He is such a boy.
Already finding weapons at seven months old!
Some of you asked about my paint colors. I use Benjamin Moore paint. I really like it beacuse they have a flat, washable paint. They have good colors too. But it seems to keep getting more expensive so I might have to switch the next time I decide to re-paint. We'll see. The old color was Huntington Beige and the new color is Carrington Beige.
Hope you have some unexpected little thing that makes you smile today.
