I've been a little bit crabby lately...

Lost Days 2

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2013
You know you need time Off ASAP when Lost Days keep happening in your free time...

Like last Day Off... You know - A long list of errands to accomplish, until you realize upon dressing your keys are missing, n last night after mowing the lawn at dusk, you'd shoveled the drain in the dark under overgrown forest Bamboo before the rainstorm. Due to allergies you'd changed clothes about four times, n finally locate the keyes in a pocket, not in the drain crap, when it's too late to get the mail or get to the laundry-mat before last wash...
Before summer-crazy-time at work, I'd requested a vaca week as soon as available in September. Finally it just got confirmed a week ago. Tough to make plans that way while incredibly burnt out. First I just need to think clearly. So Day One I wrote the list of about 20 things I'd like to get to this week.

Doubt I'll get all that list stuff done in a few days, but some beats none. Finally getting to some laundry too- need to get all the warm blankets done. Chilly out tonight, windows are closed. Still searching for missing items put away too well last spring. I bet most of my time will be spent just tracking down pieces. Most packed away too well in this little place. There's just so much less daylight now to see what I'm doing.

After dark I tend to get alot less done, but will take advantage to put my feet up some, putter on 'Puter, read books, n watch shows more to rest up. Already got to watch the new Star Trek Into Darkness on dvd directed by JJ. Abrams. I enjoyed it, think it's a good Sci-Fi story plot, n a well made film. I bet in 3-D it's really good too.

At least that last Lost Day was good for sunset pics. So here's pics I'd wanted to post earlier. Last night at the D-Bridge was pretty too, but pic posting from it will have to wait again. Seems either I'm hurrying n dropping or losing things or waiting when I don't want to...

Now back to cooking (chicken n zucchini), n eating all kinds of stuff at leisure, with no pressing plans except what I want to do...

Deck Blossoms 2013

Image by SnaggleTooth Summer 2013

I never got around to showing you the pretty blossom assortment I've been putting on my table all summer, due to my pic upload glitch. Some one at work told me to read a book with that title... I should look it up when I have more time. Mostly I've been reading free Sci-Fi put in the Post Office used book exchange (New thing just this summer). Again I'm uploading pics on another computer into drafts for later use. I got so frustrated after work trying this week.

 Hate not getting to post same day pics all the time anymore -

In July the growth n blossoms were grand. Like those pretty light pink  inpatiens n dark burgandy centered Petunias. I had a odd collection of sizes n colors of petunias, due to one mixed $2 flat, two smaller sized $1 re-pots, plus seeds grown, n surprize appearances. Add in $1sale mixed Inpatiens, plus ones sprouting all over. A big surprize were two years ago viola seedlings sprouting in almost every pot, plus Volunteer Shasta daisies.

Mostly I picked Petunias for the table, as you need to pick them to encourage more. This is my fave, most sunny spot, near the door, that I have. The front is used more for veggies n herbs. Not shown today- n really gearing down now. Have Tomatoes, Carrots, Beets, Pickle Cukes, Thyme, Basil, Mint,  n Lavender. Had Peas until a few weeks ago.

 I really liked those pink n white striped petunias I always call the peppermint ones- they remind me of the hard candy. The catepillars ate them all up since then. I don't care about the white ones, n still have tons of them!
Impatiens are all around the deck- they did well with chicken wire protecting them from critters.

Now the petunias are being devoured faster than they can grow. I have a catepillar in a jar n hope it hatches to show me the true pest- I'd hate to kill butterflies by accident. There are milkweed all through the red Bramble Roses (small blossoms) in the yard. I found a pink Bramble Rose by the bridge, n it's still alive in a bucket on the deck. Hope it winters ok- I have a collection to plant in a new yard spot after it's weeded again. Next week I should have more free time Off.

I need a whole devoted day to re-pot all the house plants too-  It's been over a year. Lost a few waiting too long, n knocked some over putting windows up n down. Most of my care takes place after work about 3 am by flashlight. I carry jugs of water from in the house out to sit a day before watering. I like Days Off when I can peruse all the prettiness at leisure in daylight better... Most free time is errands n chores still.

The same spot in August has blooming Marigolds from previous years bloom seeds added in. They're taking off in several pots now in September. I've already collected some seeds to use next year, n will let most go to seed now too.

It took me so long to find these pics I knew I took, n to post them, finally! (Now back to massive pic uploading!)

Yo Woh

Why does this remind me of "I am The Great n powerful Oz!" ?

It does appear to be a large, golden cloud fairy in the sky,  n a grumpy Ogre ruling the ground below...

As un-suspecting visitors frolic in the awesome waves.

Too cold to do that today, but dry air is better than muggy. Going slower resting up for another work-week. Should be less busy now at least. Once again the pic upload isin't working, n have other pics I can't post from today. Will get to it later I hope!

On the Steps

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 2013

The best part of the recent Marshfield day-trip was to visit all the Little Ones. Some aren't really little anymore, n almost as tall as me! Little B didn't want to participate, he's very independent-
I got to see many nieces n nephews plus half my sibs.
It was fun, but I skipped sleep n now I'm still burnt out weeks later!
TG Summer work orders are all done after last work shift- Yay! I could just sleep for weeks...
