In the Yard...
My Sammi Girl
Bird is the word.
Red-Headed Stepchild Finch
(I made that up. It's a House Finch.)
"Well, I heard she's boinkin' the Blue Jay in the Maple Tree next door."
The Crepe Myrtles are a-bloomin'.
On the Crochet Front...
Still workin' on the squares and the doily.
Nine more squares to go.
I sat down and worked out a plan for this blanket last night. It involved math and only took me AN HOUR. I swear. And there are only 20 blocks! I'm a math idiot. My mind goes blank when I see numbers. I'm embarrassed to tell you about it, but it's too funny not to.
Do you know what took me AN HOUR? I drew...I scribbled...I erased...I wrote down numbers...I erased some more...I drew the blanket with all the squares...I labled the squares with colors...I erased some more...rinse, repeat.
Twenty blocks, five colors = four of each color. OH MY GOD! DUH! For some reason I was thinking there would be more of some colors the way I was placing them. And that reason is I'm a huge dumb-ass where math is concerned. Now you know.
In the Kitchen...
Toffee Crunch after-dinner treat.
(To soothe my math-injured brain.)
The Succulents in the Kitchen Window
(Nice view out the window, huh?)
Something kind of interesting about this one...
It's a Portulacaria afra Variegata, or Rainbow Elephant Bush, a form of the South African Elephant Bush, a major food source of the native elephant population. Elephant food! And you thought they only ate peanuts. Oh, wait. That was me.
I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed all the succulents I potted this year.
I moved more of them into my kitchen so I could enjoy them.
It's already too hot outside to sit out there.
I'll save the rest of my nonsense for another day.
