Prepping for the Weekend

One must rest up adequately to enjoy the weekend.

After sufficiently resting, one must get cleaned up for any fun activities, like catching a mouse, chasing the dogs or playing with the kitty fishing pole.

Then you make sure to look as awesome and cool as possible.

Fungus Amongus

This summer has been unusual.  Unusual in that we have not had any days over 100 degrees and we have had rain in late July into August.  Not that I am complaining, it is just that this time of year it is usually very hot and dry.  With all the recent rains, it has been very muggy though.  Perfect conditions for fungus.  Glen took these pictures the other day.  It was a good thing he did, because they were gone by late afternoon when I got home from work.  They are so delicate looking, I am amazed that they are able to support themselves.  I also love, love, love the droplets of water on the blades of grass.

Birthday Beverages

Last Friday was Glen’s 40th birthday.  We played it pretty low key.  We went to his moms house and ate lasagna until we thought we would pop.  The downer was he bought a nice stout beer for himself but was too full to drink any of it.   However, he was able to enjoy it Saturday evening….a good way to prolong your birthday.

I did sample the beer, and it was pretty tasty.  However, I stuck with the wine.  I enjoyed a nice glass of Malbec.

Little Birdie

I got these shots the other day.  I have no idea what kind of bird this is.  Is it a type of sparrow?

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
