Hi, Everybody! Welcome to that part of the week when we take a moment to celebrate the small achievements or the mountains we've moved over the past seven days. A big thank you to our host, Lexa Cain, and our co-hosts: L.G. Keltner and Tonya Drecker.
1. I'm celebrating the fact I can participate in a blog hop since our internet went bye-bye earlier this week with sporadic reappearances. We switched companies yesterday and hopefully I'll be surfing easy from here on out.
2. I've edged my running route up to six miles. My legs aren't as enthusiastic as my brain. They say ouch-what-the-heck-wasn't-five-miles-bad-enough?
3. Our family had a glorious walk around Durand Lake last Sunday. By the shore, my husband lamented the lack of turtles, so I pointed a small one out to him. He then upped the ante and asked for a deer. I said I'd see what I could do.
Later in the apple orchard, we happened upon 2 ladies with 5 dogs between them. One was a super-sweet cross between a chow and an English Corgi. We all fell in love and wanted to

After we dragged ourselves away, my daughter spotted a young deer. We joked about finding its parents, but wouldn't ya know, a short distance away, we found momma. Of course we had to start singing, "Doe, a deer, a female deer." She twitched her ears, which roughly translates into: "Oh please! Like I've never heard that one before!"
Then we joked about finding daddy deerest and yep, not far from his woman, he was munching away, sporting a fine set of antlers, (but nowhere near as huge as those in the picture above!)
It's also Flashback Friday! The host, Michael G. D'Agostino, is looking for someone to take over this monthly blog hop. Go visit him at A Life Examined, if you're interested.
Here's a quicky: my Y post from the 2012 A to Z Blog Challenge. Enjoy.

Yin and yang. Dark and light. Female and male. Earth and air. Doofensmirtz and Perry the platypus. According to Wikipedia, the idea is complementary opposites, one giving rise to the other, instead of opposing forces i.e. good vs. evil. (Doofensmirtz is not entirely evil; he loves his daughter.)
Finding images for yin and yang isn't hard. In fact, flickr.com has the feline variety up the yin-yang!

My daughter loved this kitten image so much, I had to recreate it in frosting for her birthday cake that year.
How was your week? Got a cool flashback post to share?
