Classes are in full swing right now and keeping me pretty busy as I knew they would. Things are going well so far and I hope that they continue that way. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I get through 2 semesters and a summer class for my LPN degree. I haven't had time to do much else besides reading and studying except for a few shifts at work. I've always heard that nurses have a rather strange sense of humor and I think it hit me this afternoon on my way home from work. I stopped at a roadside stand to get a couple of mums for the front of the house. The purple asters lured me in as did the red mums. As I picked up the aster, I noticed that there was some fireflies buzzing around it. Upon looking a bit more closely, it hit me. They were mating on my aster! Not just one pair, but at least 10-15 pair! Oh sheesh... can't they get a buggie room? lol. The lady who runs the stand said that they tend to gravitate toward the asters for some reason. Well, I really wanted the purple one, so in my car it went... fireflies and all.
It's a 30 minute ride home and the whole time I'm wondering how many baby fireflies I'll have next spring lol. I debated whether to take pics or not but then I thought, why not. It is a fact of nature that even bugs need to find some buggy lovin' :) I was a bit taken back though while I was snapping a few pics when I noticed there was a threesome going on. Kinky little things aren't they? lol Should I post the pic? Well, maybe another time or unless I get alot of requests for it. I don't see that happening though :) I will try, however, to snap a few pics without the fireflies adorning most of the lovely flowers. I spotted a couple of other colors that I may bring home tomorrow after work. Thanks for putting up with my silliness :)
Enjoy your day!
