Friday Frivolities

I tell you this, and I tell you plain:
What you have done, you will do again;
You will bite your tongue, careful or not,
Upon the already-bitten spot.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960

No, the quote has nothing to do with anything ... it just cracked me up.

Yesterday was a weird day, weatherwise. In the morning it was gray, cold and around 7:30 a.m. it POURED ... for about five minutes.

Then it slowly cleared up. Looks like the worst of the storm went north of us (which is why you didn't get any yucky weather, Ceri). It was, however, windy as all get out for the entire day (which wasn't necessarily bad as it helps keep the bugs down).

We looked for pillars, but didn't find any yet. We'll look again today. I checked back for last year and discovered that we didn't find our first pillars until June 13th (and we found NINE then). So, despite the appearance of the butterflies, it might still be too early by a few weeks for pillars. Even so, we'll keep checking.


In other news, my mystery bulb outside is starting to do its thing and now looks like this:

And no, I still don't know what it is.


Your Life's Challenge is Being Fickle

The whole world is open to you. You are a smart person with many resources and opportunities.
You've lucked out a lot in life. Things always seem to go your way, and you've had many successes.

You may be surprised to learn that you are standing in the way of more success by being a bit too irresponsible and flaky.
If you stuck to things a bit longer, you would rule the world. You have much more in you than you even realize.

The first part, yes, the second? HAHAHAHAHA... no. Stick-to-it-tiveness is not my problem at all.

I'm anxious to know what that bulb is. I've never seen anything like it.

MomJane said...

What a fascinating bulb. I have no idea what it is either. I don't remember ever seeing anything like it.

The wind is supposed to stop today (fingers crossed)

Dru said...

I never saw bulbs droop like that and I don't know anything about plants so I would be interested in knowing what it is.

Your Life's Challenge is Procrastination

You are a very creative and inspired person. You have a lot of unique and interesting talents.

You can do amazing things, and you are always thinking outside the box. You have quite a mind.

However, you tend to have trouble turning your ideas into reality. You put off doing actual work.

Don't forget that perspiration is a big part of being a genius. Get to work!

The first two paragraphs are me, but the last two are not all like me.

Have a good Friday.

That bulb looks medusa-like. *g* I've never seen anything like it and my MIL loves to plant bulbs.

I hope you have a good and sunny day today!

I'm telling you, it's a mutant plant from outer space. *g*
