Today was one of those wonderfully lazy summer days of sleeping in, puttering around the house, and just relaxing. We had some evening things… church for two and horse back riding for another. And those same three had something else – haircuts.
Lesson re-learned: Book concurrent appointments. I’ve learned it before, but in my haste to get appointments for three before summer’s end, I gave in to who was a new and not very organized receptionist and scheduled three cuts in a row with the same stylist. Ugh.
Thankfully, by the time she was on the second thick head of hair, she called in backup and our potentially full-day affair was shortened to just three painfully boring hours. Elise and I were not getting cuts. She fell asleep on my lap half way through the appointment time while I alternated between Candy Crush and a book that isn’t holding my attention (hence the embarrassing admission).
The other who stayed all three hours (and longer) was this moth. He was on the door as we walked in and still there, unflinching, as we opened the door again to leave. I really wanted to take him home and pose him on a tree for a proper shoot, but felt a bit awkward about that, so drove away regretting it later.
We arrived home to find an adult rabbit (perhaps Peter) sitting in our driveway. I pulled in slowly and he eventually hopped away towards the trees, and in his path was this little one, no bigger than a tennis ball. He let me get about three feet away before he hopped into the thicket as well.
