Beware the Falling Iguanas

Life sure is unpredictable.

One minute you are outside barefoot enjoying a warm January day in Florida and the next you find yourself bundled up in boots and a scarf, crouched tentatively outsideĀ scanning for falling iguanas.

Iguana illustration my own. No iguanas were harmed in the drawing of this picture. Iguanas may appear dead but are likely frozen okay?

All I have to say is stay weird, Florida. Stay weird.

(I’m happy to report the only exotic animals we’ve seen in this cold snap are our beloved manatees seeking warm waters at the power plant park. They are very much alive and not frozen or falling from the sky. Wow that would be scary, encountering a falling manatee! Did you know the largest adults can weigh up to 2,000 pounds?)


Keep up with the blog (and the iguanas) on Facebook and Instagram.

Swingin’ from a palm tree as a married lady y’all!

Yesterday I found myself swinging from the palm frond of a 30-foot palm tree.

(I was trying to remove a dead palm frond. This is a thing you do in Florida. Totally normal. Hey ho, just pulling off a twenty-foot palm frond as part of routine lawn maintenance. STILL WEIRD TO ME.)

Well, it was glorious! My neighbor (my nickname for him is grumpy) stared at me like I’d lost my marbles. What, he’s never seen a middle-aged woman swing from a palm frond before??

And then, to top off this week of awesome, I found out that my husband and I are in fact officially married! The state of Maryland notified me to let me know a copy of our official certificate has shipped.

Things are lining up for old Liz Lemon!


How is your week going? Have you swung from a palm frond recently? Are you also officially married?
