It is photo blog day! I love this day of the week. Saturday means that I am with Peter. It means that my kids are with their Dad (they are at some point every day but spend more time with me during the week for the school year).
And the school year is over. 😀 That’s as much a break for me as it is them. I still work but I get more evenings to myself. I like the end of day time best. It’s a chance to just unwind and let go of the day, be pleased with accomplishments and figure out how to get the things you missed done the next day. And time to figure out how to forgive yourself for missing those to-do items.
That’s a big one for me.
So last weekend was our last at the cottage until mid-September. I was a tad tipsy Saturday evening (first time in AGES, alcohol doesn’t like me) but I still wanted to take some pictures. When my camera refused to focus in the late evening light Peter went and found a couple of flashlights. I’m going to post my favourites.
First, something that completely amazes me and it’s in my own home.
It helps that I keep my floor food free. If there’s food on the floor, they’re right there. They only touch the mess the cat makes if the food gets wet.
Why do I tolerate this? I’m not sure. There’s not a lot I can do about them since I can’t use Raid or something. I don’t have any cayenne pepper right now either. But it amazes me. It also amazes me that I let a spider live in my stove. It eats the ants.
And speaking of spiders….
They’re only pretty when they’re babies. The adults are creepy as hell. I have to agree with Thereasa on this one, the contrasts between the green of the leaf and red of Peter’s tee is wonderful. The bright spider is kind of a beacon to the eye.
Then we got tired of trying to light him up and get a good focus where he wasn’t moving. So I moved on.
And I love the texture of the petals and the varying shades of red and pink. The little bits of white scattered throughout. The blue of the porch rail sets it all off nicely. Me being me, I had to try something different so I did this…
It picked up the white and made it almost sparkle.
My favourite pictures are the ones I took of the lilies.
And the last of my shots that I want to share brings us back to roses. This one is from the same bush I took the half-bloomed one from. We had a mini-heat wave the week before I was at the cottage. The temps soared to 33, 34 degrees Celcius with humidexes of near 40.
I will try to write more blogs. I’m slowly figuring things out for HW3. I wrote some porn again recently. Debating sharing parts of it. Debating posting it on my literotica account. Tomorrow I will talk some about what’s coming in the book.
Have a wonderful weekend and for all you fellow Canucks – have a fantastic LONG weekend!
