I'll let you be the judge!
While working in my yard today, the Fourth of July holiday, I was again very happy and surprised to see my friend , Mr. Toad.
I first noticed him underneath the little red flowers. As it was already very warm outside, I got the hose out and gently sprinkled water over the area. I also filled his little dishes with water as I read that toads like to have water around their area.
When the little fellow started to hop around, I got very excited and grabbed my camera.
Prepare yourself for this action packed video
And there you have it, part one of "The Exciting Adventures of Mr. Toad "!
My husband, when asked if he thought me crazy, replied " I knew you were always a bit nuts!"
Mmmm. Well perhaps this is true. What I can't quite fathom is why such a little thing like this toad can get me so excited. I mean I understand that as I get older life seems a bit, how shall I put it?
Mundane. I don't surprise easily anymore. This is not to say that I don't enjoy life, it just doesn't seem so exciting as it used to be. And I suppose this is why God gave me grandchildren.
They have a way of bringing fun back into my life. Them and crafting, sewing, crocheting and painting. Which there doesn't seem to be enough time for lately.
So now, back to my latest obsession, Mr. Toad. I had to stop working in the yard just a bit ago after videoing Mr. Toad as it was just getting too hot. We are going to pick up some groceries today and I am going to try and find a little toothpick flag for his digs.
It is Independence Day after all and I am sure that he would also like to honor his American heritage!
I will leave you with part two of "The Exciting Adventures Of Mr. Toad."
And then I'll let you be the judge. Obsessed, or a bit crazy?!
