random happiness

Rain kissed day-lilies.  The color is so vivid and happy.

Basil and Nasturtium planted in an old canning pot waiting on the cat porch for me to harvest and make pesto.

Lavender and an old bird-cage.

I’ve come down with a stinkin’ case of viral bronchitis and have been placed in lock-down in my home.

 This does not make me happy.

So, I pulled a few random happy photos from the past few weeks to share.

Random facts of Kim.

I love mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Maybe I see a scoop in my future – for medicinal purposes of course.

I’ve been lobbying for a couple of chickens and a rooster.  My girlfriend, the animal whisperer was going to help facilitate this.

Then she told me her peacocks had babies.  So I added peafowl to the list.

Sadly the peacocks were dispatched by some unknown force.  Sigh.  I’ll have to wait a little longer for that dream to be realized.

I love vintage sheets, the kind with faded dainty floral that lend a shabby chicness.  This spring I went to several yard sales and snatched these up for next to nothing.

I plan to do some crafting with them in the future.

This one, I have been using all summer at my kitchen table as a table-cloth.  The bright cheerful colors make me oh so happy.

And yes, I don’t iron.

I was awake during the night, which didn’t make me happy, but I did sneak out and put a few happy moon shots on the camera.

There was a brief break in the clouds.

Then they rolled in again.

I think they lend a magical touch just perfect for an old style thriller mystery movie.

What happy randomness are you experiencing?

See you later, Bye!

squash or one-eyed squid

Macro Monday – squash

I  attach my favorite macro lens and head out to the garden.

Our squash plants are finally putting on a good show.

Do you see it?

squid

I see plants that resemble underwater oddities.  You know deep ocean intricacies.

Oh and those wicked thorny hairs.

Is that squash or a sea urchin?

Beware of the white fury monster that lurks behind the leaves.

In a day or two my plate will be full with one-eyed squid.

Yum!

See you later, Bye!
