I washed the covers of Franny’s old beds, then stacked them in the corner of the living room. Polly has been enjoying her new bedonabed.

Yes, Another Pear

The background color is a little off on this. It’s not that bright and minty. I’m too lazy to scan it, though.

The paint is some old cheap-ass tubes I need to use up.

Storm Clouds

A strong storm system moved in last night, just as it was starting to get dark. The rain was welcome, but the lightning and thunder, not so much.

The weather today was absolutely perfect for sitting on the patio and writing.

I was somehow a little bit early for work again this morning. I have no idea how that even happened, since I overslept.

The funny looking weedy things growing in my flower pots alongside the volunteering forget-me-nots finally bloomed and showed themselves to be coreopsis. I’m glad I didn’t pull them out!

I stopped at Kroger on my way home from work. They were completely out of Halo Top ice cream. Boo! But there were some gorgeous pink lilies in front of the store, so I took some photos.

Forget-me-nots

Forget-me-nots are volunteering in all of my flower pots. They must have reseeded themselves last fall, because I didn’t plant any this year.
