From scary dreams to pixie cuts and reminiscing about the good old days, I love reading your answers to the questions I pose here once a week. Some of them make me laugh out loud, and some are so sweet. Thanks again for playing along.
Today was another lazy day after work and there was no walking of any kind going on by me. I was tired, which is a bad excuse, and just wanted to sit on the little back porch with the tea my husband brought me, and the Ocracoke Island Vacation Rental catalogue.
Today, my husband served me tea in my second favorite cup, which is this one. I got it at Starbucks several years ago.
Also today, my husband killed a whole bunch of those ugly stink bug things that were hanging out in one of the curtains in the living room. He left them there, he told me, as a warning to the other bugs.
After I realized he was kidding, it really made me laugh.
And then the cat started playing with them.
Today on PW’s photography site, Miz Booshay issued a Fall Landscape Bokeh Assignment. I submitted the photo above, as well as the one below.
Bokeh is pronounced bow-kay or bow-keh and it refers to that lovely out-of-focus light and all the different shapes and colors you see in the background of photos taken with a digital camera. It is created by light and and the glass in your lens and distance and wind and focus. It's a Japanese term for the subjective aesthetic quality of out-of-focus areas of a photographic image.
I found this caterpillar while having my tea this afternoon. Can you see how it’s changed colors already? You can still see some green on its side, but that will change soon. Some people think that the more black the wooly worm has, the more harsh the winter will be.
On another note, Survivor is making me mad. Ben’s an ass, Russell continues to be the devil incarnate and Betsy, the police officer, gets voted out. Gah!
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
Oh, and the post title? Well, I’m all out of lollipops.
