Mixed-up day

Put together hot, muggy weather, a weather-triggered migraine, a late afternoon storm and downpour and yet another leak in the roof (dripping in two new spots) and it was...a mixed up day.   The only things that got done mostly as planned were church services.

However, to cheer everyone up, here's a picture of what I thought (!) was a beetle and turned out not to be.



It's a two-lined spittlebug, which in nymph form makes those foamy lumps of "spit" on plants...but the adult form flies around fooling amateur naturalists like me into thinking it's a beetle.
