Doodads 2/7/20 — One of these things…

I borrowed “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” by Valerie Ann Worwood from the library within the last week and have been consulting and taking notes from it since then. Today the copy I bought arrived in the mail. I noticed immediately that there was a substantial difference in size between the two… Continue reading Doodads 2/7/20 — One of these things…

Doodads — 1/2/20

I started reading Haruki Murakami's 3-volume 1Q84 last night. It's a 2-week e-book borrow, so we'll see how far I can get in 2 weeks. It's a simple, but dense story, which is par for the course of what I've read of him so far. I also borrowed Season 1 of The Waltons and watched… Continue reading Doodads — 1/2/20

Doodads — 1/1/20

Happy 2020 to you all. I've heard it referred to as the Roaring 20's and I called it the year of perfect vision today. Hoping that each of us is inspired to look with clarity and see what needs to be seen, so we can do what needs to be done. Book Review I must… Continue reading Doodads — 1/1/20

Doodads — 12/26/19

I woke up today to sunny skies.  When I put recyclable items in the bin outside it wasn't even cold, somewhere in the 50's.  I ended up walking out back to check things out.  More trees have fallen because of the extremely high water table.   Looking up the clouds were moving fast.  Looking down I… Continue reading Doodads — 12/26/19

Doodads — wow Friday the 13th???

I just realized it was Friday the 13th. So far so good! image link Viewing The first thing I wanted to talk about is the 2-hour documentary I watched last night, called, “Bob Dylan: 1966-1978: After the Crash.” The netflix blurb says: This documentary covers the so-called middle period of iconic musician Bob Dylan's career.… Continue reading Doodads — wow Friday the 13th???

Friday Evening Doodads — yard update

It's time I did another update on the yard.  Remember when I was complaining that all of the Asiatic lily variety pack were the same (beautiful) shade of pink?  Well those ones were the early birds and have come and gone.  Right now some of all of the rest are open, and oh my goodness… Continue reading Friday Evening Doodads — yard update

Monday Doodads — more yard pics

Don't think I'm ungrateful.  These giant beautiful lily blossoms are to be enjoyed and appreciated.  They are so fragrant!  I saw a hummingbird moth at them for at least a few minutes yesterday.  What is troubling is that this was supposed to be a 20-bulb VARIETY pack, with each variety chosen by color and name. … Continue reading Monday Doodads — more yard pics

Thursday Doodads — Flora & Fauna out back

An abrupt early afternoon thunderstorm blew through here and then it was back to hot and muggy.  Not nearly enough rain came down.  It's staying in the air.  I did get a chance to walk out back today and check on things.  Mostly good, some things of concern.  Some pictures and videos.  Hope you enjoy… Continue reading Thursday Doodads — Flora & Fauna out back

Saturday Doodads — Garden Tour

Today a friend and I toured 8 different gardens in 80+ degree heat.  The temp in the car said 88 on the drive home.  Thankfully some of most of the gardens were in shade which helped.  Before going on to the pictures, I have to say a universal plant in each of the yards was… Continue reading Saturday Doodads — Garden Tour

Friday Doodads — The yard

It's been in the 80's all week, which means too hot to do much outside for most of the day.  I just went and got the mail out of the box, deadheaded the hanging basket of petunias and verbenas the kids got me for my birthday -- yes, I just had a birthday, yay --… Continue reading Friday Doodads — The yard
