Dry ditch, not a drop of water. Summer has been strange - a total write off- Not many positive memories made about this one.
Healing a broken neck, staying put though yearning for adventure- the heat, and now the smoke that seems to be an everyday gasp for air, Mr. Man rigged air filters, Cost Co-3 filters for the price of a half filter from Home depot- He taped them to box fans. Doing a pretty good job- after only three days the filters are brown and need replacing already but we are breathing a bit better.
It has been surreal- Birds are silent and hiding somewhere, the deer have stopped roaming, It is quiet out there.
This morning in the back a smoke goblin invaded my camera. I was taking a photo of the Pampas Grass that has been there since the late 70's , and this is the best it can do!
No plumes, just razor sharp edges, as I found out the first year in this house, thought I would make a basket out of the fronds- I really am blond...
Below are our tomatoes. Deer dinner.
hearty autumn flowers seem to be thriving in spite of no water and no air
and YES it is Autumn. For me, summer did not happen at all.
This morning the furnace fired up!
Everything is the color of that fuzzy plant, Smoked out, dry, crispy, a non color.
I received my interview specs from Randy Rainbow in the post this morning
Ready for more political show tune shenanigans. If you are not familiar with Randy Rainbow you MUST google him and watch every one of his "productions" - He is a marvel!
Visited the message chicken a while back.
She always has good advice.
Time is nearing the last quarter of the last quarter, for me, anyway. Have I done what I loved doing? Did I love enough? Have I left a tidy place behind? Is my underwear washed and put away? Have I made a positive difference to just one somebody somewhere?
Dunno, but know this for sure, I have had a blast this go around!
I can sit back , I suppose,wearing my judgy Randy Rainbow glasses, slowly reading "LIFE' By Keith Richards, thanks to Ms. Mary Moon. Oh yes, this book compelling - sends me to GOOGLE every three sentences or so, to look up this and that- to go to you tube to listen to musicians so good- I listen over and over again, It has taken all summer to get to the almost end of this book, which I do not want to leave- hanging on , backtracking, googling,
I want to stay in "LIFE"s world for another long time.
Keith is the man, god I love him so!
He is a great teacher - how to have a positive attitude in the face of all sorts of damage and danger- AND, probably best of all, he has saved me the hassle of drug addiction. his writing so clear that I have experienced it all on paper, saved my nose, saved my money, saved me from the horror of withdrawals. A very generous writer!
