Close Your Eyes and Think Summertime Thoughts...

No, wait!!! Don't do that!!! You won't be able to look at the pretty pictures...

I’ll be honest with you all right now… I just looked across the house and saw my adorable calico cat Skijit sound asleep on the living room floor in a huge sunny spot big enough for me to lay down next to her and I damn near turned off my computer to join her… I feel sluggish today… Slow… Groggy as f*** honestly.  Hubby has brought home some variation of the seasonal crud and I am determined to NOT GET SICK! I have way too much to do this week between photography engagements and the retail job that I cannot afford to catch whatever shitbug is crawling around in the air here at the house. I am taking a fistful of vitamins in the morning, washed down with a nasty tasting Emergen-C drink. Followed by sinus flushing with this god-aweful mucus melting/immune boosting burns-like-satan-just-peed-up-my-nose stuff. I am spraying every surface Hubby touches with disinfectant (the kind they use on ambulances), then putting Zicam zinc liquid on the inside uppers of my nostrils (as if I suck on zinc based lozenges- I will throw up unlike any paranormal specter has ever seen) and by the time all that is done, it’s time for my super antioxidant super fruits tablet the size of a small horse turd.
According to the amount of vitamens I am taking into my body and my battery acid color piddle- I should be great!!! So why do I feel so damn brain-foggy? I haven’t taken any cold medicine- save for last night before bed. I needed a good nights sleep, so what better to take then coma in a capsule stuff? As I mentioned before, Hubby has slowly but surely been succumbing to the seasonal shitbug… While this has been happening since about Friday- his nocturnal noises have gotten incredibly bad. Like sweet-mother-of-f*** am I sleeping next to an Amtrack?? No matter what position he lays in or I roll him into in a fit of sleep deprived 2:35AM rage… His mouth falls open as his nose is plugged, tongue falls to the side and within seconds, the curtains are moving to the rhythm of his oxygen intake… If the bed wasn’t so damn comfy and toasty warm… I would sleep on the couch. So- last night I took coma in a capsule and boom!! Snoring? What snoring??? So that will be happening again. And again. Oh and AGAIN!!


Saturday- Hubby took me somewhere I haven’t been in about two years. To that magical place known only in my house as “The Gardens” Sunday was the official start of Butterflies Blooming, however Saturday with all the sunshine- they were all about just fluttering. Making people smile and children giggle in delight. Prepare yourselves everyone…. We’re about to dive headlong into some green!! Some tips to further enjoy this segment of summertime green awesomeness… Snuggle a little closer to the desktop space heater, crack open a bag of fresh potting soil, and every once and a while- spritz yourself with a mister filled with water…

The Brutal Reminder of Reality...



It felt really, really good to be sweating like an out of shape pig while photographing all the lush green around me. Never had I thought 90 degrees with 100% humidity would feel so blissful. Now come this July when that's all we will feel... remind of this will you???

I hope you enjoyed your little trip of green. Feel free to steal a few of these as wallpapers for your computers if you need a little reminder of happy greener days ahead!!

Off to prep another blog posting for later this week!!! Hint Hint- probably shouldn't look at this one on a work computer... or ya know... at the public library ;)

Remember I am selling prints and copies of my art work at the following places:
