The quote was apropos of nothing in this post. I just found it amusing. *G*
It was HOTHOTHOT yesterday, and so humid that even my toilet was sweating. We don't have A/C, so there are some times we suffer. Not many, thankfully, but when nature cranks up the sticky weather, it can be tough.
I had to water all the gardens yesterday -- don't typically do much watering, to be honest, because we get quite a bit of rain here, but I looked outside around noontime, and the plants in my front garden were nearly dead! All wilted, poor things. So I stood outside in the high, hot midday sun and soaked everything.
About 20 mins later it rained. It was the strangest thing -- it clouded up in a matter of minutes and then DUMPED water for about 30 seconds. It was literally as though someone had filled a bucket and poured it out. It POURED, so heavily you couldn't see through the curtain of water.
Then as quickly as it came, it left. The skies cleared back up to pure blue and the heat returned. Weirdest thing...
Pillar Place is fairly uneventful. We have pillars doing their thing: eating, pooping, transforming. The goofy things are completely ignoring the very lovely sticks we've put in the box, though, and it's getting to be quite a traffic jam on the roof of The Box. Check it out:
The big white spots are mesh, and the masking tape is there to cover previous webby stuff from pupae. I really need a new box, but can't find a copy paper one to use. I used to sell Avon and I'm tempted to go back, just for the boxes!! *G*
Over Memorial Day, my friend Michele had come up to visit. She only just got around to downloading the pix she took, and sent me this one... I think it came out quite nicely aside from the fact I was squinting in the sun (and I don't often say that about pictures of me):
And that is the story of my life ... at least for today. How was your weekend?
You Are Real
No matter what, you are always yourself. You don't know how to be anyone else.
You are honest, authentic, and comfortable in your own skin. You embrace your faults.
You expect everyone else to be as transparent as you are, but you're not always so lucky.
You're in search of the good people in this world, and as you find them, you make friends for life.
About 50/50 ... I was having trouble deciding, because I liked some flowers, but hated their vases, lol...
