Days in the Life: It Rained for a Month


it is morning
i am typing
trying also to fig out 
the nuance of wifi transfer vid apps

while eating ma brekkie



the electronics
all of them
and the pumpernickel bagel

that is this morning

lets look at some of the other mornings 


local doh nut shop

had all the gluten frees


schpidahs
have set up the webs


coffeeeeee
in a wine glass

because coffee


got another corner of the kitchen floor done

its only been going on a year and a hafffff

i have goals


the display of mushes
is full on bc of a month of rain


all the fuzzy glorys


even the absolutely teeny tinys are perfectly perfect


they are just amazing


and the rag weed is out

sniffle sniffle sneeze


sweet ferns are in abundance

they're pretty & we will let them be

and hopefully they will spread


rhododendron is putting on growth 
& sending out a bloom 
okayyyyy


when it wasn't pouring down
it was so hot it made the plastic urns 
go all bendy


yeah

this was a breaking point for me

i snapped

i vowed to go in the house

get washed up and just say 

go ahead stupid weather 

wreck what you can 

im not making anything else

until you calm the F down

so i went inside

washed ma hair

put on some clean
not working outside clothes

omg how long had it been since i had done that

besides for work


and we went to Target!!!

yay

we needed a few things and just took our time

btw

they will let you out of the store 

if you don't spend $200

fyi

just so you know

I had my Hamlet leggins on with
my grandpa sweater
and my lil studdy back pack 

annnnnnd of course

Starbucks

meanwhile
back at the ranch


the cat has decided to campaign 
for his own instagram


i give it one more week before he gets sick of posing

lol


we had an eat like a child day

whole wheat bun
turkey hot dog
ketchup
broccoli tots

it was freaking delicious


while having an entire month of rain and storms

you have to have one power outage

right

thats where all of those battery operated candles come in

thank goodness i collect them

lol

ok
thats it for this days in the life post
to sum up

it rained for a whole month
we now live in a jungle and i had clean hair
that stayed clean for more than a sec

weeeeee

i need to go 
hunt for cords
 to link the cam i just made a video on

fingers crossed that i make it out of our office jungle alive

I've already looked where i thought it would be

organized chaos

needs 
to get
 organized

BUT FIRST

i will do something fun

i suggest you do the same
wherever you are
i see you
and
i will see you next time
until then 
hunt for more 
fun details 
on the social medias
and like
and share
and follow
and tell all your friends
sharing is caring
and
dont 
forget
MAKE SOMETHING

the leaves are poking through all over

and doubling in size by the day!

The Merry Month of May: Bitch, Make Your Own Yard 2018 edition

oh mah gawd

I have been trying to blog for weeks now

theres a new to me typey box

still limping through getting my pics from one source

to another

but

to reduce the stress 

Ive been keeping myself busy


look how many daffs came up

we did not plant these

they are just showin up

fine by me


the flowering trees were having a party

and the grass is coming back


got some cool stuff 

and 

plant babies


made some lemonade out of this spruce

the winter beat it up 

so i trimmed it into a mini version of our 

super large eastern white pine

with accompaniment 

give yer plants friends


there are bouquets 

growing on the side of our northern slope

love it


finally made it back out to that big pine

and the back is all 

well lets just say 

sculpted


got a good deal on two more window boxes

so I took hanging baskets

already put together from the super market

and added vinca vine on the ends

boom done

took an hour


pre window box

this north corner of the house is being remade

tidied up

pulled all the bittersweet


15 bags of marble chips

I mention this madness in the youtube



this wee area is getting its makeover for the year

lights were wonky

new window box 

there will be added stones for the walk


saw this lil guy at the bird feeder last week


saw this big guy at the bird feeder last week

all it took was one slam of the screen door 

and he was all NOPE

disappeared thru the curtain of pine saplings

silently 

no sound

like he was made of silk


one lady slipper coming up


this is what the garden looked like 

at the beginning of the month

and right here would be where the pic from today would be

but of course I have tried several ways of importing 

and it is not happening

enter the depths of despair now


anyhoo

went rock hunting yesterday

& if I take pics now

maybe in a few weeks I can post them

idk
lol
youtube seems easier
raw footage
tap the upload
go live your life
get back to being creative
ugh
oy
whatevers
go find me on the social media
you can see fresh pix there
I need coffee
xoxo
