I guess it's ok, or maybe not to have these little guys in your HOUSE? Is it a deep south thing? It was not ok when it ran over my foot a little while ago. You see, I am from west Texas where scorpions (my Mom won't even call them scorpions because she has a terrible, unhealthy fear of them...she calls them mean bugs...she does not even like their name) are the things that crawl around on the floor and fall off of you from the ceiling. They sting like well...something really bad. Still thinking... Anyway, so glad we do not have mean bugs here where we live but we DO have these little lizards. They are ahem...IN the house. That just does not seem right!! I thought that lizards belonged outside! I only see maybe one a week but one inside is one too many. I threw the last one out the front door. I think I saw him glance back and smile a wicked smile saying..."I will be back in a minute."
Yes, that is the corner of my bathroom. And yes, the baseboards and floor are dirty. You know, it is the corner that sits under the trash can that gets ignored a lot of the time. I could pretend that this dirtyness is unusual but that would not be the truth. :) I will work on it!
So, does anyone feel like fall is just not coming this year? I know that this is still the last day of August, but really...these hot temperatures are getting just down right on my nerves. Just the fact that it will be Sept. tomorrow brings me some hope. At least a little. Please Fall...come quickly! Maybe these little geckos will leave when you decide to make an appearance.
Dreaming of crisp cool breezes, jeans and sweatshirts, drinking hot cocoa and coffee by a toasty fire, needing to turn on my seat warmer in my car, hearing the crunch of yellow leaves under my feet (not just dead ones from the heat and no water), sitting shivering at a football game, PUMPKINS!, snuggling under a big comforter, a big pot of warm stew to enjoy with friends, etc.
I just can't wait. As I wrote all those thoughts above I thought, wow, I should just live in today and not long for tomorrow. I should embrace the things that crawl around in my house. I should love these 100 plus summer days. I will try harder. Come here little gecko. Let's be friends. Not.
