Nights n mornings have been pretty cool here this week. I covered up flowers n the herbs to protect them for a couple nights until I had time this week. Most of the Thyme is picked n hanging up to dry or in a glass of water with the Lavender. I'll miss the weekly fresh picks. But at least I won't have to pay $8 for a tiny container at the market.
I've been busy as a bee trying to get nectar out of teeny-tiny daisy s...
Actually there are about ten small bumble-like bees in the original pic, but they were moving so fast only a few are visible, n only one was still enough to be usable. So I used her cropped close-up to produce the altered pics here.
There were other bunches of the Shastas (also known as Fleabane), all around the road-side, but bees were only concentrated around this one bush, where the sunflowers had been weeks ealier. It seemed quite strange to me. Maybe they had directions from several weeks ago...
Silly move watching "Hannibal Rising" directed by Peter Weber from the Library- It was good, but I guessed the surprise news at the ending - well before the middle of the story. Yep, lots of cringing at squeamish, bloody scenes. But if you liked "Silence of the Lambs" it did a great job of explaining why he got that way. Directing n acting were first class.
I always want a horror film around Halloween time. Now it's out of the way
. At the other extreme, I also watched "Five People You Meet in Heaven" with Jon Voight, which had an interesting concept. Yep, it would be nice if we all get to learn why our seemingly unimportant lives affect others outcomes.
I hope blogging counts that way too- I know without it I'd have so many fewer interactions n positive thoughts. I wouldn't be doing these pics on a regular basis, without feeling rewarded that someone else gets to see them. I appreciate all I have met here, n love reading all you have to say n create. Time is so limiting this year for me.
I want to get more done with my life, (like the character in the film), but am having a tough enough time just getting to work, store, n home these days. Getting older takes a toll I hadn't anticipated. Exhausting physical n mental work isin't helping much. The money does tho... Time just seems more precious than the money.
The light is fading earlier, n daylight savings time soon will put me in the dark when I need daylight motivation. But it is a nice change to want to sleep in the cool temps. I just closed the window two days ago, n I'll be firing up the crockpot to help keep me warm tonight. Shying away from the little electric heater until I have to- My sinuses are already too dry.
I'm more motivated to walk than clean my room, but got to do it, before the dark takes over, n I have to be quiet all night.
Off I go to find that big flower score the map said would be right here... Bzzzzz
