I would first like to thank everyone for taking the survey 🙂 It was an incredibly opportunity to get to read them and to get to know some of my fellow bloggers a bit better. If everyone is ok with it, I would love to post the results of the survey in an upcoming post 🙂 Just let me know otherwise!
I had quite the interesting memorial day. I made my first attempt to paint on canvas with acrylics and voila! I painted what you see below. Not that great, I realize, but it was still fun nonetheless. I am liking watercolors too, so perhaps if I’m satisfied with one of those creations as well, I might share one with you. I want to keep what I write at least somewhat entertaining and I think my attempts at art are just that 🙂
Memorial day was quite interesting as well. My bf and I went to the zoo, something we haven’t done since we first began to date. We were both pretty excited about going because it would be the biggest zoo we’ve ever been to and it was supposed to be a beautiful day, which it was. We got there and, of course, the GPS told us to enter the wrong entrance. By this time, we needed to use the restroom (sorry to be gross). That’s what a cup of coffee will do to you on an hour long drive. Anyway, we finally found it after going a mile out of the way and making a U-turn. Because it was Memorial Day, I assume it was much busier than normal. There were far too many people for my comfort zone and quite a number of interesting folks as well. I find that the most unusual sorts of people come from nowhere and show up at places like the zoo, amusement parks, or even dare I say it, Walmart.
I can’t say I would ever go back, but I do love zoos. Well, I thought I loved zoos. I don’t remember them being as commercialized as all this and I definitely remember them being nicer and more animal oriented. This all seemed to be about the zoo making money, and I understand that because they have to take care of the animals and keep the place running, but it was all too much. It was just a tourist trap. The nice day turned out to be hotter than we expected. It always seems that trips to the zoo or mound sites are always nuclear hot and today we are both feeling the repercussions of that. On the way home, I was super nauseated, probably from dehydration and the heat.
Anyway, enough about the complaining. That’s my biggest flaw. I complain too much. I had a wonderful time and got some great pictures of the zoo life. I enjoyed spending the day with my bf when I would normally be at work. It’s nice to have those times to spend with someone we love, just the two of us, enjoying one another’s company. It’s times like this when I’m reminded why I fell in love with him in the first place.
What did you all do this Memorial weekend (if you have this holiday that is)? I’d love for you to share!
In the meantime, have a look at some of the zoo pics I took!
