June 12 of 12

I had a late start to this month's 12 of 12, because I forgot it was 12 of 12 day until almost 4 pm. Luckily, I had my camera in my purse. Better late than never!

3:45-ish I had a caffeine craving and got an iced caramel macchiato from Starbucks.

4:00 pm: I must have had caramel on the brain. Recipes like David Lebovitz's make me want to get an ice cream maker.

7:30 pm: Walking to my car after a 1 hour zumba class. I've been going to classes at least 3x per week, I'm addicted!

7:35 pm: My dinky softball glove from almost 14 years ago. I recently joined a social softball team. I think I need to get a bigger glove--this on is a little small.

7:45 pm: Citronella lamps on the back porch. It gets very buggy in my neighborhood due to a semi-wetland at the bottom of the hill behind our house.

8:00 pm: My avocado treelings have grown quite a bit since I started them from seeds in January. I'm quite proud of them, even though I'm pretty minimal when it comes to gardening. My thumb has a hint of green.

8:05 pm: I became certified as a zumba instructor almost a month ago. It was mostly for my own benefit--to understand a bit more of the choreography and movement involved. I became part of the zumba instructors network (ZIN) and my new choreography dvd & accompanying music came in the mail today. I'm so excited, I can't wait to try it out!

8:10 pm: The crazy out of control rose bush in front of the house.

8:15 pm: One of my cucumber plants. Soon I'll have cucumbers instead of flowers.

8:20 pm: Silly puppies ready to go inside.

I like the shot of the citronella candles, as the smoke climbs.

Thanks for sharing!

Your puppers are so cute. I've actually never seen anyone grow a successful avocado seed plant before. Congrats!
