This sweet big girl had been camping out at the same spot for a couple of days on the other side of my driveway. I went over to check on her and she had been digging a hole. I’m not positive but I believe she laid some eggs in that hole. This happened around June 1st. I did a little bit of internet research and it said if she laid eggs, they should hatch anywhere from 45 to 90 days, so I’ll be checking the site come July 15 and every day thereafter just to see if there has been any change. I looked in the hole and all I could see was mud and the hole. Hopefully, I’ll see the pitter patter of little hatchling feet in the coming weeks or months. She was so cute. I just had a couple of little chats with her and she just carefully watched me.
Later, I saw where cars were slowing down in front of my house, so I went out to see why and she had her butt parked in the middle of the road, so I picked her up (to which she tried to fight me) and put her on the other side of the road in which she was headed. Haven’t seen her since.
I’m not sure, but I believe her to be a Mississippi Mud Turtle, and I named her Myrtle, for lack of a better name.
On another note, I have finally updated my 101 Things page. Oh, and now not only have I snagged me a couple of cool jobs online (just got a second one today that I start Tuesday) that I can work from home, but I’ve also earned the title Freelance Writer, since I’ve sold my first article online. Nice! Dreams can come true.
I hope y’all are doing well. I’ll try to establish a routine of regular posting. Still working on my schedule. Now that I’m working from home, I’m busier than ever, but a lot less stressed, if that makes sense. At least I’m busy doing things I love. Working in the yard, cooking, cleaning, hangin’ with my girls, writing, working online, among other things and just enjoying life. I hope you are enjoying life, as well. *smooch*
