The feature image is a Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. There are over 550 species of these large butterflies within the family called Papilionidae. The forked hindwings that can be seen when they rest like this butterfly is what gave them the common name of Swallowtail.

Heaven is a girl dog. She hikes her leg like a boy dog and I caught her peeing on this yellow fire hydrant while out on our walk. We call her Miss Territorial!

I like to color. As a kid, I always wanted the large pack of crayons and never got them. As an adult, I purchased the 120 count and you can tell they are used. There are a lot of greens here that include names like fern and shamrock. Gumby sits in my office and was given to me by a coworker several years ago because I’m so flexible with deadlines.
I was wearing my “Lucky Grandma” t-shirt and green wig on St. Patrick’s Day, 2018. I was designing a t-shirt for a client on my computer. If you would like to see what costume that green wig goes to, check out my blog here. It’s worth a peak. Yes, that is me when you see it!
Tweety, our Peach-faced Lovebird was so photogenic and I will take any opportunity to show him off. Unfortunately, he died at the claws of a Red-tailed Hawk. We have framed photos of him hanging in our bathroom as a reminder of just how awesome he really was.
