Musings

Wordiness

GooFi rent

Someone thought this lone, highlightable, benefit might cinch a deal—fast. Turns out maybe the rate’s too high or something else, as this sign has been posted for a while.

Lily blushing

Yeah, and a flower photo. Interesting color. Light plum? Blushing orchid? Rosy something?

Fleeting, it’s all fleeting

Spathe white dramatique

I had six or ten phrases from today that I thought I might use for a title, and thus be what I’d pivot the text around, but, can I remember even one of them? Nope.

July delivery

Lily white by D

We’re lusting after the new Sony camera. Oops, I think we (meaning he, with my whole-hearted approval) just ordered one.

Ripening science

Avocado ripening

One of the things I loved about buying veg/fruits at the markets in Mexico was that if you wanted avocados, the market lady (almost always a lady) would ask when you intended to use it. You could be very specific, like seven this evening or three this afternoon, and the avocado she offered in response would, invariably in my experience, be perfect at that time. Yay!

Bee balm

Now I see that today WholePaycheck had two piles of four-to-a-bag avocados, one with this sign and one with a 3–4 day sign.

I bought a single from the regular pile, and it was perfect in our salad. Didn’t need four avocados, so I don’t know if their system is as good as the market ladies of southern Mexico.

Expanding my horizons

Lit lily

I was out early as temps were predicted to reach 90°F, and the low-angle sunlight was stunning on this lily.

Indoors, I did some reading about khirigsuurs, Bronze and Early Iron Age civic-ceremonial monumental stone constructions in Mongolia I’d not “heard” of before. I did not find out how the word is pronounced, although GooTranslate indicates it includes Mongolian, but the software/database doesn’t “recognize” the word khirigsuur.

TY for your patience

Chair w snow

Proof I’m out of ideas…or, broadly, creativity—here’s an old (duh!) photo of chair from same outdoor set as recent photos…this time with snow.

I could be inspired about…whatevs…or…this other thing…but, nope, I’m giving myself a pause. More energy tomorrow. [Crossing fingers.]

Summer is here

Outdoor furniture light shadow

I’m repeating myself, photo-wise (if there is such a term; light’s different though—chair, too—hah!).

And, in the time I was out getting this photo (and several discarded ones), a darned aggressive mosquito tried to invade my skin. Officially, summer is here, no?!

Tremulous in the Ether

Chair shadows

Ether in the 17th C was everything between things. I heard the title phrase somewhere, noted it, and forgot where I heard it*. Well, it’s noted again, for whatever it’s worth. Is this ether more like the sunlight or the shadows? Still pondering…but not tremulous (timid, nervous, shaking, or quivering) in the pondering.

* Yeah, should have noted source as well as phrase. My bad.

Off season chores

Roland Garros

Without planning to, one of our Paris wanders last March took us by Court Philippe Chatrier at Roland Garros. Lots of construction going on on the lanes between the courts. Of course, no tennis players in sight, only construction workers and perhaps engineers(?), also wearing boots and hard hats…but their clothes were clean…and they tended to carry rolls of charts/maps(?).

Anticipation

Dark view

I’ve already ranted about it being JUNE, so I won’t return there.

I’m observing the process of the daylength stretching out, although dark is still dark for a long night. Soon, however, summer-hours will make it light light light for a long long long time.
