You ever notice that trees do everything
to git attention we do, except walk? Alice Walker
|New leaves coming on to the genipa. This is the female one with no fruit on it, unfortunately. |
Or maybe fortunately, they can be a big mess...no one could eat that many!

|When was the last time you played with water?|

|Ahhhh, there goes the sky|
|One last look|
Another big thing happened yesterday. But I can't tell you what it was! Just kidding. You know I tell you every single thing that happens or has ever happened to me in my entire life. All of it. Including what comes out during life regression therapy, back when I was the handmaiden to Cleo (we called her Cleo, but not to her face, of course). Oops, digression alert.
The big thing is, work has started on the houseboat! It's been moved to an undisclosed location (I'ld tell you but then I'd have to put you to work) that makes it accessible by jumping on. I was so happy, I ripped down a bunch of rotten paneling. What better way to express joy?
And here we are, the royal we; bread making ends (tomorrow the last day until next fall) and other projects begin. Who's on first?
Have a thromping good Thursday! Do something to talk about.
|How do you like your soft drink now?! |
The reasoning here is at once simple and complex and...scary. I think I'd either
never have sugar again orstart eating it by the handful after rationing...
|Two pounds a month! Of course, back then, sugar wasn't in everything we purchased...hmmm|
|Don't waste it. What a concept!|
|I love this one; it has a lot of info, you can click to enlarge it.|
When I started gardening, you could go to a county Extension Office and get all sorts of free booklets, pamphlets and advice on everything from canning to building goat milk stands to raising bees. There were classes held as well. Why not have that happen again to help create jobs and help people find a way to help themselves? Classes in urban gardening, how to create a community garden...yes, the info is all out there but it's a harder row to hoe by yourself. So to speak. Pun intended.
|I think I've posted this before but it's so great, I have to post it again.|
|I'm patriotic as can be--And Monsanto's junk won't worry me!|
|Which just goes to show, you don't need to lose your style |
when wearing overalls and a bandana and...a soldiers hat.
No brim included.
|I mean, who wouldn't get out of their way? |
They are going to kick some serious recycling butt.
Paper Metal Bones. Sounds like a scary game. Oh yeah, it was real.
Oh yeah, it still is. Oops.
|So get your ass out of the HOV lane and join a car-sharing club!|
|This has so much potential that I believe |
I will leave you to devise your own entertainment.
|In the middle is a great playground that just got a fresh paint job. At water's edge is a house compound that also just got a fresh paint job. Nice work! Especially if you like purples and blues...and I do.|
|But I'll take corals too.|
One of my chores up here is to keep the plants happy, something I really like to do. My usual goal is to get something wind blown and ragged to have at least one bloom by the time the home/pet people get back. It's really windy up here, a lot of the time and it's a tough environment for plants, but somehow, most of them hang on, year after year.

It always takes me a day or so to adjust to being up here. Dogs, for one thing. They are not cats.
They stood there, staring at a) cats b) the sound of dogs barking below c) the wind, and I could read their doggy minds. "If we didn't have these damn fence collars on, we'd be sooooooo on it!"
There is the cat (one of two) here that I fostered as a wee one, now grown up. There must be something about cats with definitive tail tips that makes them awesome cats.
And now, down to the chicks, down to the Cat, down to the water's edge. It feels like Saturday.
