Not just any lizard really. We have two very large lizards that hang out on the stucco walls of the front of the house. We call them the house crocs and I assume they are getting their daily meals off of the bugs on the rosebushes there. Beautiful creatures! A few days ago I went out the front door to find a baby lizard(a miniature version of the house crocs) around the front porch area,and now he is most always there. Very gentile little fellow. I talk to him and tell him what a fine specimen he is and strangely, we have eye contact and he doesn't scoot away as the two big ones do. He just sits and listens. And does a little front body pushup of approval now and then. So I am talking to lizards these days. Is that a side effect of radiation??
I think I am doing well with my recovery from surgery and treatment. Still have a little occasional bleeding and a low grade pain zaps me ever now and then but not really knowing what is normal I am guessing that is all OK. When I go back for check up in September I guess I will know. Energy level seems alright but the heat really gets me so I am trying to stay under the cooler during the hot part of the day and anxious for the infamous monsoon season to start so we get the cooling afternoon rains. My thermometer was reading 97 today and that is hot for Silver City!
I finally found the bird feeder that I was looking for and have it hung outside the kitchen window. We had to hang it very high so that we aren't also feeding the deer from it. Just a few birds this morning but hopefully they are telling their friends where the good eats are!
I have been saddened by the death of two people, both of whom I barely knew. One a lovely young lady, just getting started in her adulthood, who so badly wanted to live but valiantly battled cancer and lost. Another,just a few years younger than I, whom I had visited a couple of times, had many illnesses and choose not to endure them anymore, and took her own life. I had sensed a wonderful childlike spirit in her, and was shocked to hear the news. So sad. In both cases. Once when I was a child, I remember a minister saying that life is like a sparrow that flies from the outside through one window of a room, passes through the room and flies out a window on the other side. It really didn't make sense when I was very young and a year seemed like an eternity. It makes sense now. Life is precious. And too quick. Treasure every day. I know I do. Gratitude!
