Time out for the Circus...






I took some time off from blogging and the internet to enjoy the great week of weather we have had here in Central Maine. And also to go to the circus with Deja and Jose... we went on Saturday and had lots of fun. Deja had never been to a circus, so she was pretty excited to see the lion and tigers. And of course I had to send daddy down for a closer pic...

I wanted to get in the reserved seating section, where the photos would have been much better. But once Jose saw tigers and a lion he stated that there was no way he was sitting that close to the floor. I asked why, and he said all he could think of was if one of them got loose. So he proceeded to lead us up to the second level---near an exit door mind you. Normally, that would be me that would be the paranoid one-but he wasn't having anything to do with those big cats. So then, I sent him down to take a better photo of them in their cages waiting for their turn in the ring. Nothing like a little torture to make him really uneasy, huh? He was not very happy with me, but did get a few photos to shut me up. Until the lion started roaring of course, then he walked-quickly-up the stairs, handed me the camera, and started eating his cotton candy while nervously eyeing those cages.

The circus was lots of fun and I have spent the last few days playing Bejeweled 2 on the PC. Checking emails once in awhile, but taking some time off for relaxation. (When actually, I should be cleaning the house.) Oh, and of course buying N95 face masks at Home Depot (enough to outfit my entire street) after watching about this Swine flu scare. See, now THAT was ME being paranoid! But it was easily justified, hubby got a fix up car that he will be repainting, so those masks will be used to keep out those fumes and of course I can use them with my dust and dander allergies (and FOUR cats!) and pollen allergies. It was kind of funny to see the clerk at Home Depot looking at our purchases-- $135 of face masks, and seeing my Hispanic husband and putting two and two together. I bet she went and washed her hands and sanitized the register after we left...lol. But seriously, this flu is very scary and I do hope for everyone's sake it doesn't get worse.

I am headed to bed-my waterbed is beckoning and tomorrow morning will sure come early when I have to wake up my son for school. Pleasant dreams everyone!

Wow, that looks fun! Thank you for following my blog. I'm now following yours as well, and I really enjoy it so far. I'm sorry to hear that the flu is so close to you...here's hoping it leaves you alone!
