This is an icycle held up entirely by the twiggy branch of the tree. Look closely and you will see the limb going thru the ice. That is it. Its not attached above or below. It was too big for me get the whole icycle in the picture so you will have to take my word for it.

Snow on the Lawn Chairs Part III. The snow is curling forward and sliding off the chairs from its own weight. There is a physics principle at work here, I am sure, but it is lost on me. I think it looks pretty.

Lawn chairs in the snow part II

Sunday, December 12, 2010

I didn't put my lawn chairs away at the end of summer. Sn'oh well.

The Buddha says wait to be seated. It is zen to wait....so don't undertip your waiter if you wait too long. Thank your waiter for the zen opportunity!

Why?

Why do Chinese restaurants have fish tanks?

The sunflower dies alone, the sunflower dies alone, hi ho the derry oh, that's gotta suck. (See earlier post for the sunflower's better days).

Flower: 'I've fallen and I can't get up!'

I had a piece of green masking tape on my bathroom mirror for nearly a year. Reminders of things I needed to do but didn't want to do. (I put my finger over one of the items..ahem..ladies you might be able to guess what that item was...) anyway..thank goodness. Finally my 2010 must do's are off the to do list...only 2 months to start the 2011 car and body appointment list...

The sunflower stands alone, the sunflower stands alone, hi ho the derry oh, the sunflower stands alone.

My race number for the Fort for Fitness race. I finished at 1 hour and 4 minutes.(4 miles) I walked/jogged. Then I came home to find my dog had ripped up the house. Its like he senses it when I am having fun without him! He got into the recycling and a cabinet and pulled some stuff off the counter. The floor is now mix of empty beer bottles, saltine crackers, junk mail and dog food. Yeah cuz cleaning is what I want to do after an early morning jog.

Fuzzy Lion Art

Buy or don't buy? I found this at the local Goodwill on sale for $1.50. What do you think, should I get it?

The sun was in my eyes when I took the picture, so I cut off the top but what it says is 'how to know for sure 100% you're going to heaven!'....

The cat who sneaks in behind the curtain and the blinds to sit on the book shelf and soak up the sun!

The sun against the heavy curtain which blocks the heat from entering the house.

This is something I saw while walking on the Oprah Trail (she helped pay for it so I named it after her, not sure what the real name is.) Unfortunately, the area is losing its charm and the sight of rusting farm tools is being replaced by paved parking lots.

Same plant, different angle...

From the garden....

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I was on the couch yesterday afternoon with a virus. From where I laid, I noticed how bright the light was in the kitchen with the sunshine coming through the sliding glass door. I thought of the phrase 'go toward the light' or in this case it might be 'go toward the old wallpaper'....

Here is a picture of the squid ink noodles fixed with stewed tomatoes, oregano, basil and garnished with cilantro.(because I couldn't find parsley)

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

'Curiosity killed the cat,' remarks the cashier as I tell her I bought the squid ink pasta on a whim. I also picked up beet pasta last week. I am more leery of beets than squids so...this should be interesting.

Beet Noodles! I picked these up at Farmers Market held inside the local bowling alley.

Learning to Curl in a heat wave: yep, that is where I spent yesterday evening. I was at the ice rink throwing 45 pound rocks and sweeping like a maid on meth. My armpits and knees are sore today. Curling is a work out!

This is a caterpillar, right? It has been ages since I have seen one of these!

Sunday, July 11, 2010

This is a picture of my black cat Bo Bo taking a nap in a dark room. Seriously, trust me on this.

I just want you to know that in spite of the praise for pantyhose on my main blog, I am kicking back with bare legs today. Happy 4th of July!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I found wild strawberries growing in my yard. I am excited like I have been visited by the fruit fairy ( a distant cousin of the tooth fairy). However, after 'googling' wild strawberry I realize that many people consider this an invasive weed!

I shredded a shoe with my lawn mower! It was part of the shoe garden I planted last year. This used to be a navy blue low pump with buttons down the front. It was a good shoe on my foot and also as holder for a dusty miller plant. RIP blue shoe.

I want to change my avatar for this blog. These are the contenders for the new avatar: a picture of my chin OR the picture below...

A piece of goofy art that I made from old wires, beer caps, paper, pipe cleaner and gesso.

Here is a clover patch in my back yard. Why must I find the four leaf clover to have good luck? I don't need to see the four leaves to know that I am lucky!

Here is why the neighbors probably think I am eccentric or lazy. I am letting these weeds grow until they flower. I am curious to see what they will look like.

Weed or plant? I posted a picture of this plant earlier before it blossomed into a patch of somethin' somethin'...I am guessing these are bean plants but not sure yet.

Here is my belly fat from another angle. 'Flabs of steel!'

Saturday, May 8, 2010

Over on my main blog I mentioned using body fat to power cars. Here is my contribution!

Happy 10th Birthday to my kitty cat!

Monster dandelion! That is several stems fused into one.

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

I remembered where I planted the sage and a couple other herbs last year. Here. In the wildflower garden which is overrun by ajuga. It may look pretty but it is choking everything except a few random dandelions!

This the 'wallpaper' for my cell phone. I have no clue what it is except that it is a picture I accidentally took. I find it interesting. Any theories on what it could be??!!

S&xy shoes! Me sticking my legs out as I sit on the deck enjoying the lovely spring evening.

Doesn't this look like a body part you might see on a p&rn site?
