just do it | ...

This weekend I broke out of my 'funk' 
and did what I've been telling myself to do all summer 

 Just Do It!

Quit driving past the nursery and STOP.
Good thing I did because not only do they sell mums and pumpkins, but they have an amazing assortment of decorative flags and fresh produce.

bonus - found a prompt so I could share my latest random Snapple cap edu.

It's always fun to grab the camera and catch the 'feral cats' pretending they are domesticated.
I noticed momma cat lounging on the front porch a couple times, 
giving the neighborhood the impression that she is all sweet, friendly and cuddly.

accidentally on purpose ...

nature's way of photobombing.
didn't even notice the bee until I pulled the pictures up on the computer.

mums the word ...

unless of course you are a deer, then it's "chow!"

I took these shots the other night apparently just before the deer buffet.

 In an effort to salvage what remains of my fall mums I have sprayed them with a garlic concoction

and if all else fails, I will sic Ike loose on the deer.

schools in session ...

cobwebs, errr, spiderwebs

or a colossal mess 
(possibly by a spider with short legs with a tight spin cycle)

the master 
(Yoda Was Here)

Considering that the shrubs and yard were full of webs this morning
I'm guessing Thursday night was
either exam night or 'ain't got nuffin' better to do' night.

What's more, with this many webs 
(and trust me, you haven't seen the half of it)
should I be worried about where the spiders are this morning?

simply put | little things Thursday ...

stained glass window design

tiny chapel

lattice work of a spider web 
accentuated by dew drops

These are just a few of the little things that make me smile.

from a distance | song*ography ...

From a distance you look like my friend, 
even though we are at war. 
From a distance I just cannot comprehend what all this fighting is for. 

 From a distance there is harmony, 
and it echoes through the land. 
And it's the hope of hopes, 
it's the love of loves, 
it's the heart of every man. 

 From a Distance | Bette Midler 

I am at a loss with perpetual news of terrorism, hostility, war.
Why is the concept of live and let live, or treat others as you would have them treat you so hard?
