The Fourth Annual Girls' Weekend, Saving a Pacific Red Ringtailed Snake from the Paws of Archie, and Rain in May at the Lazy Vegan!
In my new blue sun dress...but where is the SUN???
What a fun week at the Lazy Vegan...all week I had been looking forward to the fourth annual girls' weekend (postponed a week this year due to Patty's schedule), where we relax and celebrate Mother's Day and Snap's birthday in style...which basically means browsing in stores, doing a little shopping and eating out! Not one to waste any time when it comes to shopping, I purchased something at the very first store we stopped at - the cute sundress above at Silk Moon for a very inexpensive price. Too bad there was no sunshine out to actually wear the dress! The rain that we are having in mid May is starting to get a bit much, although all of the plants and especially the new vegetable garden starts seem to like it. In other, more dramatic Lazy Vegan news, we spotted Archie on the hunt the other day and saw him flipping something orange into the air over and over again. On closer inspection, the thing turned out to be a snake. The foreman rescued the poor guy from the paws of Archie and then we looked up the snake and discovered that it was a California Pacific Red Ringtailed snake, and apparently it is very unusual to see them during the day. So I'm glad that it was rescued. I'm going to have to have that vegan talk with Archie again...the hunting really isn't necessary!
On the way back to Snap's house we spotted this turkey strolling down the street!
The lettuce is coming up!
