1278 PHOTOS: Peek-A-Boo

Sept 21, 2019

Saturday’s Ramblings

So, until the end of the month, you will be seeing three posts a day, for the most part – I think! I’ve got way to many photos left to share and only 9 days left! Hopefully I don’t drive you crazy!!

I hope this leaf is big enough!

Like last month, I will do a leftovers post. But I don’t think I will be able to do it all in one post. So, I will more than likely pull them into next months file. I’ll figure out how to categorize them.

I’m trying to hide here

Speaking of next month, I think I will name the series…well, something to do with the past and present. Since I’ve been scanning photos into the computer (past) as well as taking photos (present), it’s gonna be different than what I’ve been doing the last two months. I’m sure something creative will pop into my head between now and then.


I’ve also got photos ready for the “free download”. If you don’t remember, I do a free download (this will be the second one). Last month, if I remember correctly, I wasn’t sure how often I will do that particular post. I list 5 or 6 photos as well as a email address, and you send me an email letting me know which one you would like. That particular email is one I started up only for that post, so no one else has it and it’s easy to keep track of. And the post is only available for 48 hours. I think once a month is plenty. (Look for it on or around the 1st, it will be a Tuesday.)

I hope she can’t see me

That’s about all I have for today.

Tomorrow is Dear Diary Day (hmmm…make’s me think of a few ideas for a post, it will be a carefree sat after all), National Girl’s Night In Day (uh..is that day or night?), Hobbit Day (might have to watch a movie), Carefree Day (missing it by a day, darn!), and National Ice Cream Cone Day (my son says we should dance around with ice cream cones on our heads! LOL), and National Elephant Appreciation Day (go give that elephant next door a big ole hug and some peanuts! You have my permission).

There’s actually a lot more… you can check out the rest of the list here: National Day

Hope you have a great day, where ever the path may lead!!

Picture(s) of the Week

Sept 21, 2019

I don’t normally do this, but I got some amazing pictures this week! And I couldn’t decide which one to pick, so you’re getting to see 4 of them.

empty chrysalis

I was cutting the dead black eyed susan’s back yesterday when I found this chrysalis. I took pics before I investigated further…it’s empty! I thought I was going to have to leave it alone.

sunbathing beauty

And then, as I was moving along I noticed an upside down praying mantis sunning herself. I turned it black and white because, well, her chest was so bright. I guess it’s really her thorax – the area between her arms/head and abdomen. Anyway, no amount of adjusting was helping, as you can see in the picture below. That’s why I cropped it the way I did.

upside down
funnel weaver spider web

I was walking around on the 17 (Tues) and noticed this web. I’ve seen smaller ones before, but never any this big. Not on my property. The spider was in its hole, waiting for dinner – but you can’t see it. It’s called a Agelenidae. To find out more click on the name of the spider.

So, there you have it – my picture of the week. Or rather, pictures!!

1278 PHOTOS: Butterflies

Sept 20, 2019

I don’t have any more night photos, so butterflies will have to do. I hope you enjoy!

So, there’s some interesting facts about butterflies! I know I learned something new. I hope you did too!!

Tomorrow is national singles day, national dance day, and national gymnastics day.

National Day

Sept 19, 2019

While my son and I were out today I realized that I forgot to do the National Day stuff at the end of my post. So, here it is. I don’t have any food photos ready, so I am improvising! Hope you enjoy!!

Tomorrow is…

National POW/MIA Recognition Day

National String Cheese Day

National Fried Rice Day

National Punch Day (with all that food, we definitely need something to wash it all down!)

National Pepperoni Pizza Day! (And maybe a little goose on top?)

So, no quotes or anything like that – just a quick, spur of the moment post. Notice how all my photos are at least food related? In some way or another…

Hope everyone is having a great time, whatever you are doing!

Just Some Thoughts

I’m hoping every one is having a great day so far! I just wanted to let you know…I’ve been thinking! Hahaha! I’m always thinking, but anyway…I just wanted to let you know some things. First, I upload some photos to Picfair and Pinterest everyday. Or almost everyday. When I’m done with the blog, I start uploading some photos. About 10 to each site. Of course, it all depends on if/when I work that day. Like on Sundays, I have to be at my clients house by 730am, so I may not have time to upload anything. But when I get home, I will upload. (Thinking about it, I may not upload on Sundays…take that day to do something else, reflect, rest.) I am always working on my photos, so maybe one day of not uploading will be ok.

Also, I’m thinking of doing away with the reading post. I will finish Dr. Seuss, because I think that’s interesting. The post for that day will more than likely still have something to do with reading…I’m thinking about doing something with folklore, and Frederick/Maryland history.

I could also put something in about being a caregiver and self care…cause there’s a lot of info I have, I just need to figure out how/when to post it. I do like the reading posts, I just think it needs to change. But then again, maybe not.

So, I just wanted to let you know what my thoughts are at the moment. We shall see what the future holds, but I think this will work.

Hope everyone has a great day!

1278 PHOTOS: Blue

Sept 18, 2019

Everything blue! Or at least blue is the theme of this post. I think I’ll mostly let the photos speak for themselves today, with some quotes.

“I sell blue sky and colored air” – James Turrell

“Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions.” – Yves Klein

“The sun is up, the sky is blue. It’s beautiful, and so are you.”

– John Lennon

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” – Judy Garland

“It’s calm under the waves in the blue of my oblivion.” – Fiona Apple

“Blue skies

Smiling at me

Nothing but blue skies

Do I see”

Ella Fitzgerald

“How sweet to be a Cloud, Floating in the Blue.” – A. A. Milne

Blue is my favorite color, and it just happens that these photos turned blue when I inverted them. Hope you like them and the quotes!

As you can tell, I have included two photos at the bottom with links to either Picfair or Pinterest, depending on the photo. I hope you find something you like at either site. And thank you for taking a look! It really does make me feel good that you look at the photos I have available.

Tomorrow is National Hug Your Boss Day and National Pawpaw Day!

Have a great one where ever you may be!

Pinterest and Picfair

Sept 17, 2019

I’ve uploaded more photos to Pinterest and Picfair. I think I’ll do a post like this once a week. Of coarse, the picfair images won’t be available until tomorrow. If I don’t do it this way, I’ll forget, or get too confused…

At least for now, this seems to work. I’m not sure how long it takes for pinterest to be available. I’ve got quite a bit of abstracts today!!


kiss me you fool
yellow iris abstract
yellow kiss


the butterfly has landed
crazy lines
dogwood lumen print
fly away petal
frosty swirl
opposites attract

I’m always uploading to one or the other. I’ll try to remember to make sure that the links are posted, if you’d like to check out either sight.

There’s really not a whole lot going on in my part of the world right now. Just been busy working on photos. Haven’t done much yard work in the last couple of days…kinda hard to when I work! (My boyfriend’s mowing the grass.) At some point we need to get busy cutting some more wood. Other than that, things are pretty quiet!

Hope everyone is having a great day so far!!

“Abstract knowledge is always useful, sooner or later. “

– Robert A. Heinlein

Not sure if it’s of any use now, but… TOMORROW is National Cheeseburger Day, National Butterscotch Pudding Day, and Talk Like a Pirate Day!! (Thought I’d post tomorrow’s national day instead of today’s, since it is getting late!)

Thanks for stopping by!!

Reading: Dr. Seuss

Sept 17, 2019

The Beginning

All of the info and images in this post come from the book “Dr. Seuss Goes To War” by Richard H. Minear. The photos are mine, but the images are Dr. Seuss’.

There is so much information in this book, I could probably keep going until the end of the year. But, I’m not going to. I got the book from the library, so when it’s due is when I will stop and move on…at least for the time being!

This will be a quick and easy read, hope you enjoy and maybe learn something you didn’t know about Dr. Seuss.

A steam Typewriter? this is Dr. Seuss’ first version of Mussolini, but most elements we will see in later cartoons (Dr. Seuss Goes To War)
  • Dr. Seuss was third generation American. Both sets of grandparents came from Germany. His fathers parents came to America before 1870 and established a brewery in Springfield. The brewery flourished until prohibition in the 1920’s. The brewery was named “Kalmbach and Geisel” but became known as “Comeback and Guzzle”. German was the language in the household.
  • During WWI, Dr. Seuss sold US war bonds. He was a boy scout at the time.
  • While Dr Seuss was in college, a run in with (college) authorities over bootlegging liquor, caused Dr. Seuss to publish under an alias. He chose his middle name. Dr came later.
  • He never did earn a Ph.D., but when he became successful, his alma mater conferred on him an honorary doctorate.
  • From 1927-1941, Dr. Seuss lived in NYC and drew humor cartoons for Judge, an obscure humor magazine, and occasionally for more prestigious journals such as Saturday Evening Post.
  • By 1941, Dr. Seuss had a steady income from ESSO and the beginnings of a career as an author of unconventional children’s books. The Cat In The Hat was his first breakthrough book, published in 1957. (He had other books published before that, but they didn’t do too well.)

That’s it for today, well for this post anyway. I might do another short one later on. I feel that this should stand on its own, no National Day or anything like that.

“So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life is a great balancing act.” – Dr. Seuss

Have a great day!
