Roda’s Critter Connection

I have been on a very serious hunt for Spring!  It is April, right?  Yet, we had an ice storm this weekend and the kids have a snow day today!  A snow day…in April!  Are you kidding me?!  I did notice this adorable lady bird, crawling around on my rosemary plants.  At least the critters are waking up and finding their way inside!  (Insert eye roll!)


Grab your camera and share your favorite critter!

Happy Spring…I think!

A Sign of Spring: Stop the Presses!


Many of you know that I love critters!  The Winter can be difficult for me, not so much due to the snow and cold, but because I miss my outdoor critters.  Although Wifey loves our furry and feathered farm friends, she is not a fan of my creepy crawly pals.  Due to this, I am on “Bug Duty” full-time!  Everyone knows they are NOT to kill any critters, due to the “non-kill agreement” in our home. This means no throwing shoes at spiders and definitely not flushing ANYTHING down the potty!

Tonight, Wifey entered the kitchen and stated the following, “If I can’t kill it, then you need to remove it from our window, stat!”  I was instantly filled with excitement!  It felt like Christmas morning! The critters must be waking up!! And, I was absolutely correct!  Look at this cutie…


Wifey was not amused, when I took the time for a mini photo shoot.

Such a cute little Stink Bug: Brown Marmorated

It doesn’t take much to bring me pure joy!


Oh, one more thing…we won’t mention to Wifey that this little friend has wings and flew off my finger and is still somewhere inside the house.  As far as she knows, he has been released into the wild! Wink-Wink
