March 14: More Rain.

Yeah. It hasn’t stopped. But its just lovely, actually. I mean, if it continues raining this way, we might just get about a half-inch by the end of the week. Maybe. If we’re extremely lucky, and the fickle weather of California finally decides to get its act together and stinking rain for a reasonably good amount of time! Anyways, I’ll stop ranting, and just show you the picture I have for today. How’s that sound? 🙂

Thanks for visiting, folks.

March 13: Rain.

Need I say more? I could go on forever about how much I love rain. But that, I’m afraid, would lead to a myriad of repetitive sentences, with too many commas, and just buckets of overly-descriptive adjectives, which, while fun for me to write, may be boring for you to read. (See? I’m using to many commas already!) So I’ll post some pictures instead…

A snail that I almost stepped on…I was trying to quickly get a ‘graph of him when I laughed and realized that if I couldn’t get a photo of him fast enough, that would be really lame.

Have a jolly rest-of-this-Tuesday…

11 March: Leftovers!

Although, unless you’re an herbivore (of the animalian type) or an extremely devoted and psycho-natural vegetarian, you probably won’t want to be having these dead leaves (leftover from autumn, hence the title 😉 ) for leftovers…which begs the question: why did you make them in the first place?

March 10: Bücher

So, I love books. Everything about books (if they’re good, that is…). I love the way books smell, and look, the way they make you feel. This applies mainly to older books, as the ones you get nowadays are just downloaded onto “devices” made of cheap plastic with a touch-screen…disgusting.

I love when the yellowed, rough-edged pages rustle, and how the sinewy old spines crackle and groan as you open a good book for the umpteenth time…

But most of all, I love what’s inside good books. There is no better escape on a rainy day (or a particularly hectic or stressful one) than an adventurous escapade into a fascinating and well-written book. That and a mug of home-made cocoa? I could just sit there forever, completely oblivious to all surroundings…melting into the pages of my book…

And yes, its more than just one photo, but whatever. 🙂

March 9: This Horse has Socialization Issues…

A shy and extremely-reluctant-to-be-photographed horse, peeking out from behind some bushes he was hiding behind…

He knows when you’re comfortable
He knows when you’re confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.”

March 8: Succulent

A beautiful succulent (unfortunately somewhat dirty, but I never toy with nature’s originality) from my yard, drenched in that warm, mid-morning sunlight…

7 March: Full Moon

The moon last evening was so amazing that I just had to ‘graph it through this leafless and eerily chaotic-branched tree.

Confession: I took this last night but am posting it today… Oh, well. 🙂 (I hope you gathered that from the earlier sentence. And if you didn’t, I’m seriously concerned for your educational well-being… )

“What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary. ”
