Oh my gosh, so much has happened since I wrote Stu’s World IX last week. And I have so many thoughts running through my head.
First let me share with you a picture of what the world calls a Cow Ant…
Now, I haven’t seen one these in decades but for some odd reason we have seen three this week on the lumber yard. And no, it wasn’t the same one as they each where of different sizes. This one being the biggest.
The velveteen ant or cow ant is actually a wasp. And if stung, you WILL most definitely feel it as it has a stinger half it’s body length and enough “venom” to where you feel it for thirty minutes or more.
The females are the ones you see walking around and they have no wings. The male on the other hand have wings and I have never seen one.
So what do we do at work when we see one. We have it walk on a divider stick and we pick it up and play with it for a while as it walks back and forth from one end of the stick to the other. Then we put her down and let her go about her way.
The third one we saw was a baby that wasn’t even a quarter of inch long. Totally cool.
The guys at work have been messing with me because I have eating Chinese all week instead of my normal tuna out of a can for lunch. I’m like hey I love Chinese food and I’m sick of tuna so allow me to indulge myself for a bit 🙂
Fortune cookies sometimes will actually have some truth to them 👊
We have come to find out Erin did not rebreak her ankle. It was just severely sprained. She will be good as new in a few months. She is in a boot so she can get out on the mat and teach the younger kids. Thank you all so much for praying for my little angel 🙂
Brandon has hyperextend his knee. He just seems to have to be hurt when his sister is…lol.
Then Thursday I get this…this urgent feeling I need to call Angie. Sadly, I did not call right away as I was at the Taekwondo school with the kids. But I wish I had. She ended up trying to stop two dogs from fighting. By the time I called she was sitting in the hospital waiting to be seen. She has ended up with eleven stitches in her leg.
We had very short but meaningful conversation and then texted for a while…
So yeah, that conversation happened. I’m not holding my breath…as things have a tendency to never go the way we think or wish. It would be awesome to see her though!
Please continue praying for healing because standing and walking puts pressure on her stitches. The one on the bottom of her leg is the worst.
Brandon will be gone for another week to his last Church camp of the summer. I will miss him this week but I know how much fun he will have with all the other kids 🙂
And sadly Princess passed away. I came home from work and she was just laying on her rug in the bathroom. I have no freaking idea how it happened as she was fine when I left for work 😦
Blogging wise, I just started Mirror Mirror. Which I’m not sure how long it will take me to write as it is hard to write from a woman’s perspective. So I may alternate who is in front of the mirror as the story progresses…not sure yet.
I am pondering doing another Bible study here that several of us completed on the YouVersion Bible app not too long ago 🙂
And I have also been reading that several more bloggers may go towards an award free zone. I will not be one of those bloggers and here is why…
Yes, it takes time to do an award justice with the answering of questions, coming up with your own questions and the nominating a certain number of other bloggers to participate. I get it. It can take me over a week to do one award with all the other things I am working on.
BUT, if someone likes my blog enough and feels as if little ole Stu is deserving of an award I will always do my best to participate in the awards, tag or whatever it may be.
I have a mission about my blog. And I can incorporate said mission doing awards and tags. Some bloggers can not. I respect that.
If you are one of the bloggers sitting on the fence please remember you can not please everyone all the time. It takes time to an award…so take your time. Don’t feel rushed and heck don’t feel obligated to participate in every one you are given. You can pick and choose.
For me they are fun because they break up the seriousness of my blog at times and it gives me the opportunity to share things about myself that I normally would not designate an entire post to.
Please continue praying for one another through out the week. We all could use prayer support.
Love you guys! Have a great week 🙂
