    Elusive Fish, Wedding Party, Freecycle

    The elusive fish DO come out a bit at night, and seem to like the flash of the camera for some reason. It could be some strange attraction to LEDs, but I can't be sure. The photos are really dark.



    Ladybug really enjoyed finally getting to be part of a wedding party. I am impressed with how well she blended in with the "traditional" group while wearing dreadlocks, a fancy underskirt, a girl's sleeveless undershirt, and a Japanese backpack turned wrong side out. *snicker* I'm good!

    She really enjoyed hanging out with a few of her friends (including those we didn't know would be there) during the reception.

    After the wedding, she went home with her biodad, to visit for a bit while the rest of us went to pick up a Freecycle(tm).

    The rest of the family did not attend the wedding, but I did leave my camera in the hands of a friend so that the happy couple could have more pictures of their special day. (once I resize and send them to them) I may not be the best of friends with the couple, but at least I can give them some memories of their special day. *smile* I consider it my gift to them, as mother of the flower girl. *chuckle* Yeah, that works, I swear I'm not being nice for no reason. *grin*

    I've always wanted an expanding table for when guests come over, but we don't have much room. I've also always wanted a dehumidifier for my home, as I'm positive (having lived under a bridge in AZ for some time) that ripping the water out of the air makes for a much cooler sensation. This past week, someone offered both in a single post as pickup only outside of town. I simply HAD to have these items, so I responded and GOT THEM! *squeee* The table is antique cherry wood and came with three chairs, and the dehumidifier works beautifully!

    I was really late picking them up (like an hour) because I had to drop off Ladybug early for the wedding.

    I thought I was to drop her off at 4pm, but instead I was to get her there at 3pm, (which I found out at the last minute) but she ran us all late (ripped & ruined dress, watching TV, etc) so much that we ended up getting there to the wedding at around 3:45 anyway. *sigh* It really wasn't all her fault though, as I got a bit lost trying to find the place as well. *blush* At least we got there for her to participate at all...

    Wow, she looks really pretty in her dress. As for 'the sign', what are you wanting people to vote 'NO!' on? :)
