This pic was taken a few years ago while I was coming out of my local Krogers grocery store: Ducks from a nearby pond coming into the store! They waddled across the road as fast as they could because its quite a busy parking lot,
“Hurry along, Mildred, this is the last day of the sale on oats, and I want to get some before they’re all gone!”
you know! A store employee had to shoo them out of the doorway after that, but at least he was nice about it!
During the day, this park in west Knoxville looks ordinary, with its pleasant paths and a creek nearby, places to sit and places to picnic. But during Christmas, at night, the main trees are lit up like a magical forest, transforming the place into something extraordinary, almost transforming the park into a completely different world, of color and light! Night time can change the way a place looks, but Christmas makes it magical!
There’s a crescent moon just barely visible in the upper right!
Close to the old neighborhood where I lived a big chunk of my life there is this miniature pony farm and the ponies there are SO adorable! They gallop, buck and play on their choice of two hillsides that, thank God, have been spared from suburban development. They are friendly and love attention! They were coming over to the fence where my sister and I were standing, curious as to if we had any treats. Unfortunately we didnt, because what would the owners think if they saw two strangers giving their ponies ‘treats’? They liked head scratches, though, and that was nice. The pony farm is a happy place!
I wish they were ALL my little pony!!! :D
When my sister and I moved from our old apartment building to another one in the same complex, we got an upstairs apartment. From there we have a pretty good view of the sunsets and the sky. Over the course of 2014, I took a picture from the apartment windows of each season, so here is here is a collage of the same place, after the change of each season!
The Four Season at Adair Manor Apartments.
I took this picture while out on a drive, atop a hill near downtown Knoxville. I love the different blend of greys, the clouds hanging just above the hills in the distance. There was no filter used on my camera. EVERYTHING looked grey!
The question: if there was a fountain of youth would I want to drink from it?
My answer, hell no.
Why? Assuming this fountain stops you from dying as well, because if one drank from it, it would make you immortal, right? I don’t want to live forever. I want to be reunited in heaven with my mother and family. I don’t want to see the world get any damn worse than it already is. I don’t want to see friends grow old and die, to watch the whole cycle of life begin and end while I stay the same. Don’t wanna watch wars start and be worse than the one before. Don’t wanna see the earth go to pot anymore than it already is. I cant imagine why anyone would.
Hey, I’m back…kinda…sorta. Its been a looooong boring summer and I’m SO ready for fall. The heat here in East Tennessee has been horrible! But anyhoo, to the point of this entry!
Yesterday while we were out at the local grocery store, my sis and I saw this gorgeous red hot rod! I told her we cannot leave without getting pictures of this baby, even if its parked in front of some annoying bushes. I love classic cars and hot rods!
On our way to the other side of the park close to where we live we always take the path where we can see the most squirrels. Because I love squirrels and the park squirrels are freakin’ nuts (pardon the pun). I always take a camera of some sort to see if I can get any squirrel action. Luckily, the camera my friend loaned me takes great close-up shots, and I managed to get a snap of this adorable little guy, who seemed to be as curious about us as we were about him!
My precious ornery bunny Boo was quite ill last month but he is all better now, back to NOT eating his hays like he should, diggity-digging at the carpet and begging for treats. While he was poorly, though, I was able to pick him up to give him his meds without much trouble. I wrapped him in a soft towel, which helped him not to struggle too much while I syringe fed him, and he just looked so sweet and precious I had to grab a picture!
“Mommy takes care ob mees whiles I’m poorly.”
What’s the household task you most dislike doing?
That’s easy enough! Cleaning the @#$%ing toilet, and/or the tub. Especially the tub walls! **whine** The apartment I live in has the say over what kind of tile goes on the walls, and they are square with caulking around them, but at least those tiles aren’t the puke-green color they were in my old apartment. Yuck. (It seems like everything was green in my old apartment, whether it was supposed to be or not!) These tiles are white and I have to be on constant guard for mild and mildew and rust stains because we have hard water here where I live. Something like that. I have tried the sprays for keeping that crap under control, but they never work. Not like a toothbrush dipped in Clorox water. Yeccchhh!
