Here's a little pretty for the day. It's butterfly weed (not a great picture, I was nearly standing on my head) and is indeed growing like a weed. It loves this hot sunny weather. I've been watering a little to keep things pretty. Yesterday I posted a bug picture, turns out they were grapevine beetles. Relatively harmless. My son has a friend in the deep south that knows so much about all things wild that it blows my mind. We frequently send him photos with questions, he never disappoints! He works as a pest control person, catch and release kind of thing. Today being furnace quality heat I have done very little outside. Hossa got a mini walk and we spent enough time outside to weed a little, put down beer for the slugs, get stung by something and sweat just breathing. Stay safe those in heat! Hydrate! So basement workout it is!

Sometimes I get so frustrated with myself and start beating myself up. I have to look back to where I was and keep moving forward. 920 Days of logging onto Sparkpeople and doing what I need to do so that I can do what I want to do. Mind you not every one of those 920 was a great day, but I refuse to stop!!!!
