Strange and Unrelated Things . . .
Usually events in life or a photograph inspire me in someway to write a new blog post. Lately, I seem to have lost or misplaced things that provide inspiration to write. (Maybe an expanded version of my black hole theory?). My days are currently filled with unrelated things and have me somewhat scattered-brained (a slight case of ADD has developed). With school coming back into my life (feelings of dread in my stomach), working on my parents house, and trying to finish up all those summer projects that were easy to start in June and that I put off finishing in July I suppose it is understandable .. but still annoying.
I keep a thought list for blogging ideas, however, it currently consists of strange and unrelated things. They are so different and some are so weird that I am not able to find any relationships to tie them together into a post … except their oddness. So, I will just share two of my odd lists with you . . . and see what happens. 😉
List #1 – Odd things from this past week:
~ Flower petals that fall and become like butterfly wings. (photo)
~ Morning radio show host being teased about his “whiskey laughs” and “nose whistles” 😉
~ Refrigerator filled with 6 quarts of fresh picked blueberries that prompt fattening thoughts of muffins, pancakes, pies, coffee cake, jam, smoothies, etc …
~ The dog developing a need for my moral support when chasing chipmunks and squirrels. He lies on the porch and keeps an eye on them until I tell him to “go get’em”. Just a month ago, he did his “yard patrols” chasing the critters out of the yard on his own. (maybe he is feeling defeated as he has not caught one all summer?)
~ Touch-Me-Nots (exploding pollen when touched) and Caterpillars making tents
List #2: Taking the good with the bad . . . as they always seem to go together:
- A spider on your chair (bad) … A dragonfly on your shoulder (good)
- Finding new tires at a lower price (good) .. during installation finding worn out tie-rods and ball-joints, too (bad)
- The raspberries are ripe (good) .. the dog has learned to pick and eat them, too (bad)
- Warm humid days (bad) … cool, breezy nights great for sleeping (good)
- Fewer mosquitoes (good) … a huge crop of biting flies (bad)
(I posted pictures of Fireweed at my photography Blog)
And, there is one last thing I would like to leave you with … (My 2009 post on Smokey Bear and his history can be found here HOT FOOT TEDDY)
Today, August 9th is Smokey Bears 70th Birthday. Remember …
Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires!
