UPDATE: No time to re-write, so pop over to the cats’ blog for the story
What a good thing I don’t sign up for those silly post-a-day blog things! You want regular, try prune juice.
Driving through pot-hole-y road works (yet again!) last week with my box of arty bits securely wedged so ink or oil or tools would not fall out…I discovered this morning that while it didn’t actually spill, the linseed oil was somewhat shaken . So I unscrewed the cap and wiped the threads (a thin layer of linseed can dry like glue) and reminded myself as I pushed my hair out of my eyes that I need a haircut. I’m “The Girl With the Flaxen Hair!”
It’s been a funny old week. I spent several days planting things in the spaces left after tree removal. Just low-growing fillers as I don’t want to risk bigger shrubs and trees at this time of year. Apart from the punishing heat, there is always the risk of severe storms and I am a little concerned that we now have some mighty big wind funnels in this yard! Time will tell…
Elsewhere, politics has hogged the headlines. Yes, I have some firm opinions and waspish comments, but I don’t “do” tub-thumping here. Well, not much! But I certainly don’t want a star-spangled banner as a bulls-eye on the national arse! Mr. Obama can come back and have a little chat about parking his nukes in Darwin Harbour AFTER he’s hauled his troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. OK?
I think I’d better go back to Youtube and find something lighter… like these chaps
In all my zipping about I had no opportunity until yesterday to pull over and grab a quick pic of this:
Hardly a “mystery picture” although some readers who live in city apartments may be scratching their heads.
Off to the library now. Oh god! the excitement! 🙂
