This has been a week of waiting.
I’ve enrolled my 2 boys in 2 schools and waited in numerous lines within the schools to do so. It’s an annual thing.
We took two additional trips to the high school Wednesday for my teenager to wait on a counselor to see about changing a course. In between our trips, I waited in a much too long drive-thru line at McDonald’s before losing my patience. City living benefits, 2 McDonald’s locations within a 5 mile radius.
J spent time waiting for the bus on Thursday for 7th grade orientation. I brought out the camera while I kept a close but not too close eye on the corner. The bus took awhile. Even our little gray cat grey a bit impatient.
The bus did finally arrive. J’s 3 hour orientation went fine (no doubts about it not doing so) other than him arriving home with news they placed him in the wrong math class. So, now there is more waiting for a returned phone call.
Interesting story about this shell spider who waited patiently for this meal of flies. This is the second shell spider to grace the area in front of our porch. I took the first one to work with me and worried when I captured him that he looked a bit well, dead. Not long after, I found this smaller little shell spider in his or perhaps I should say her place. Charlotte’s Web in real life! Except our little spider never wrote any messages to a pig or the cat (as far as I know).
I spent some time wondering if these clouds would bring us yet more rain…
They didn’t during the day and early evening hours but the dampness of the front porch this morning makes me think the overnight hours saw a few raindrops.
Waited until National S’mores Day arrived to pull these from the cabinet. Then, we just had to wait for the fire.
And I waited for the sun to go down as well as a busy bat to fly into view and be still long enough for a photo. No luck with the sunset or the bat!
