When the day is warm, but a cold breeze blows in from the ocean, the result is often mist:
Although, some people say it's not a result of the weather, but instead is a result of sea fairies, water sprites, or some type of water spirit. Nobody seems quite certain.
Either way, we took those photos about two weeks ago... I'll let you decide for yourself what caused the mist that rolled in thickly from the ocean that evening.
I arranged with Iggy that he'd hold on to my Christmas gift until I was moved, so there was no chance of it getting lost. As it turned out, we took a long time to move, and there would have been plenty of time for him to get it to me. But we didn't know that at the time.
Anyway, it arrived almost two weeks ago, but I forgot to get photos of it in time to post about it last week, so I'm doing so now.
Here it is:
Of course, there had to be a lion... Iggy knows how much I love lions, and wish I could have one of my very own as a pet!
Anyway, I've named the lion "Baby" after Ayla's lion in Jean M Auel's "Earth's Children" series of books, and named the elephant "Babar" after Babar the king of the elephants, in the books and TV series of the same name (I've never read the books, but used to love watching the TV series; it was one of my favourites).
Thanks for my new animal friends, Iggy! :)
Around the same time, I also got this card from Rita, to thank me for remembering her birthday last month:
So, thanks to you too, Rita! :)
It was World Book Day on April 23rd.
Did you know?
I only realized the following morning, but since I spent a lot of Thursday reading anyway - which is normal for me - I didn't really miss out on celebrating it, and probably wouldn't have done anything different than what I did, anyway... Except maybe post a message on Twitter and Facebook mentioning it.
I got my appointment to go back to the dentist to have the other wisdom tooth out.
The appointment - which they told me would be in "a couple of weeks" - is for June 17th 2015.
Luckily, the tooth they're taking out then isn't really bugging me as a rule, and is mostly just supposed to be coming out before it starts causing problems (like the other wisdom tooth did).
But... Seriously? That's what they call a couple of weeks?
Also... By the time this appointment rolls around, I'll have spent six months dealing with the same issue.
I'm sorry, but that's just ridiculous! It should NOT take six months to pull out three teeth!
