I've noticed an alarming new trend this year. Ants as home decor. Take a closer look at the pretty flowers in my header. The arrangement is in a giant ant planter. Then there's this pedestal serving tray, which is being carried by ants. Because we all know just how tasty appetizers are when served by ants. Then there's a giant figure of an ant to hang on your kitchen counter or somewhere. So if the small ants don't drive you crazy enough, this huge one should do the trick. Kind of a mascot. Finally the napkin with an ant on it. If you are lucky enough to have no ants at your picnic, you still get to stare at one when you wipe your face and hands. Believe me when I tell you that's not all that's in the stores. Is life just too boring without something around to creep us out and make us jump? We have small ants in the kitchen, and today I found this one on my blood pressure pills. No joke, he stayed there all afternoon. Would you have brushed him away and taken the pills? I threw them away and took other ones.
"Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider it's ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores it's provisions in summer and gathers it's food at harvest." Proverbs 6:6
