Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



And it certainly does Chez dinahmow! So fast I am  surprised there isn’t a black and white chequered flag.

Most people who get to have as many “fire hazards” on their birthday cakes slow down about now. We are not  “most.”

The Man, for instance…decided he’d be semi-retired.I waved him off after lunch on Monday and shan’t see him til Lunch on Friday. (He’s working out of town.)

And I seem to be juggling hats. In between my gardener’s hat and chef’s hat I tried to make a hat for a little bit of fun and games here. Missed the deadline (of course!) as I was still trying to find my way around the new computer.And then I had some modem malarky. If I’d finished in time it would have been thisIMG_4615

But I actually remembered to take a camera on my last walk!That header  /\  is one of many pictures from the other day. And this morning I found the dinkiest lil green spider, but he’d gone camo by the time I ran indoors to get a camera. Pretty sure it was a (no, not that kind!) as we see lots of them ( also see quite a few of the other kind…). But, dammit! I need more spider pics for the Flickr group!

See? That’s another way I lose track of time!

I’m a bit of a links minx today, aren’t I? One more! I’m fairly confident that this won’t happen here when the Man finally retires. Hell! I hope not.Can’t have two opinionated know-alls in one house!

  1. I do love the header. I would love to be totally retired, but that won’t happen for several years, so onward and onward.


  2. Yikes! Spiders the size of dinner plates in Oz!


    • Well, these do have rather long legs, but dinner plates? Hardly. Unless you’re one of those people whose eyes register such critters in triplicate! 🙂
      And these are harmless to humans.


  3. Thank you for constructing a Tin Foil hat for my little compo – it may have been a little late, but it now has pride of place in its very own post!

    And “links minx”? – Fabulous!


  4. Love your header. And, as you know, the alien bride.
    Heres to keeping on keeping on, and washing it down with wine.


  5. Retirement…that’s when you start to understand what ‘busy’ means….

  6. Indeed. I’ve heard some mothers say that when their kids started school…


  7. Haha! Love your (late) tin foil entry. Now you can collect honey and be safe from mind control.

    But careful, it might already be too late – you know what they say about missing time… 🙂


    • Funny you should say that – my old bee veil was a bit like that!
      All I know about time is : “Time wastes our bodies and our wits. but we waste time, so we are quits!” No idea where it comes from, but I read it in a magazine when I was about 10. Amazing that I remember!
