Well, I had a family reuinion on my dad's side to go to. it was ok, had a pig roast to feed the enormous family. my fiance and i kinda kept to ourselves for the most part, talking to the cousins i got along with best and hadnt seen in a very long time. it was nice to talk to some and hang out with them again. i also missed camping so much! well i didnt miss the mosquito bites or the bugs in the tent, but i enjoyed everything all the same, except one cousin... she crossed the line and i lost my temper with her.
she told me we could save money if we got rid of our pets. saying oh she did but she still has her gerbils and shes going to use them as live fish bait
i told her we wont get rid of our pets as they are family to us and told her she is a cruel $#@%! for wanting to do that to her gerbils. and yet she wants to own lovebirds and she wouldnt believe us that they were aggressive and yet she has to get rid of her pets as shes having a baby! i told her lovebirds are the worst bird to get if you have a little baby around! if the baby sticks a finger in that cage, thats not good. well whatever, the whole situation with her pregnancy is NOT a good one, her boyfriend lets just say is a #[email protected]
&! fill in the blanks with any insult you want, they all fit him.
anyways, family drama aside, one of my cousins is a boxer, just 18 and he's best in the province and is 3rd in Nationals! I got to go watch an exhibition match of his and he is very impressive!!
I also got a new camera, a new model to my old one. i am SOO happy with it. the close ups with it are awesome! i had to take lots of close ups of bugs and spiders lol
also, there was a hawk nest in the tree above us, with fledglings flying around. one dropped its prey out of the tree and landed on the ground to retrieve it. so she stayed out and i got a decent shot of her!
also, though i didnt get a photo, before we left we saw Vulture, the common grackle we raised!
and i finally got my Feliway from my aunt... now hopefully it will help calm my cats fighting a bit!
certain photos are in links because theres a few arachniphobic members on here lol
partially albino common grackle (look at one white tail feather)
and a lot of you wonder what camera i had been using... this is it. old, cracked LCD screen, and the shutter was always stalling...
and THIS is my new one! its my favourite colour too! late bday present from my dad as i told him i needed a new one!
