Not Just Snakes

New wildlife was spotted today in our backyard. If you know me, you know I'm terrified of lizards. It's ok if I see one, as long as it's not near me or able to jump on me. As a matter of fact, I don't really like any critter that has the ability to jump and land on me - hence the grasshopper incident of 2008. (April knows what I'm talking about!)

Well, today I spotted a lizard...but not just any lizard. This lizard was not very big, maybe about five inches long, and it was skinny - much like the green lizards we have in San Antonio. But this lizard was not green!

It was also the first day back to school for all the new teachers. One thing that is unique about a small town is that the local churches are sponsoring the teachers' lunches for the next week. Today the Methodist church fed us a great spread of fresh corn, ocra, green beans, squash and tomatoes. We also had potatoes, roast beef, ham, stuffed green peppers, deviled eggs, spinach casserole, and a whole lot more. There was banana pudding, brownies, and an assortment of pies for dessert!

There was a prayer before lunch and a prayer after lunch. There were also several door prizes donated by local businesses.

I can't wait til lunch on Monday!

i am terrified of lizards...and i agree with you on not liking just about anything that can jump or land on you.
and i would seriously consider quitting my current job as a stay at home mom for lunches like that...well, maybe not, but it sure sounds scrumptious!!
