Our Pet Lady Bugs

Laomai and I decided to share with you about our ladybugs. With a hundred year old house you would expect to find bugs, but all we have found are those of the lady variety. Lots of them. I love that they are here. This one lives on my lamp with his wife. I am sure that they are madly in love or I wouldn't bother writing their story. It is a beautiful one.

To keep up with my Under the Tuscan Sun theme, here is an excerpt about . . . lady bugs!

Katherine to Frances: 
"Listen, when I was a little girl, I used to spend hours looking for ladybugs. Finally, I'd just give up and fall asleep in the grass. When I woke up, they were crawling all over me."

Frances: "So? "

Katherine: "So go work on your house and forget about it." 

"What are four walls, anyway?
They are what they contain. 
The house protects the dreamer. 
Unthinkably good things can happen, even late in the game.
It's such a surprise."
