Bring your own lunch

A few months ago I wrote that I've developed a habit of eating breakfast outside every morning. Sometime during the summer that habit expanded to include lunch. Most days I'm out there for about twenty minutes with my lunch, a book, and Levi, with his dreaded tennis ball. (Butch usually naps indoors at lunchtime.)

Yesterday an unexpected guest joined me at the table. Since I hadn't planned to share, I was glad to see she had brought her own lunch.


I hope she enjoyed her meal as much as I enjoyed my whole wheat crackers and pepper jack cheese.

  2. Yeah, it was nice. Wouldn't have wanted to share the lizard's lunch, either.

  4. Haha ~ looks like she got her protein in for the day! A meal eaten outside on a lovely morning always tastes better I think!

  5. Catherine, I'm pretty sure Louisiana lizards eat well. There seem to be plenty of bugs to go around.

  7. Marion, isn't s/he pretty? I love watching these little anole lizards. My biggest concern was that Levi would spot this one and make it into a snack of his own.
