If I only had a brain hat, like Stella here, I would’ve found my shadow pics yesterday.
That’s a picture of a brain that Little Man colored for school last year and then the class made “hats” out of them–they were studying anatomy. In case you’re wondering, Stella is a “boy.” There’ll be a post about Stella in the future.
So, here’s the real deal–my dog’s shadow. Did you figure out what made robot dog’s shadow yesterday? It was a bike carrier on the back of a car. The boys actually saw that shadow and told me to take a pic, because I take a pic of practically everything.
This is Big Monkey’s shadow. Yes, he really is skinny and tall.
As I was pulling out of the carport this afternoon, I noticed that all of the birds were standing in the shade. They weren’t chattering or eating, just standing. Our yard, especially in the evening, sounds like a scene from The Birds–lots of bird chatter, chirping and squawking. It was eerily silent today and I attribute it to the death-heat. Even though I promised to lay off the heat grumbling, I felt compelled to add that observation. It was kind of like driving down a busy road when there is no traffic–eerie, not normal and mildly apocalypic.
