So, these are the only pictures that I have for you all today, because it rained and I didn't want to take pics in the rain.. But while it wasn't raining I took these of the sky, the major storms were to the north of us but there were some cool clouds going on. I know they aren't the best, but really there wasn't any color or anything, just grey. I did get some weeding done before it started to rain on me.. Let me tell you, weeding sucks! Especially when you don't know what is under all that junk...but I did get a bunch done, I was even sweating a bit. Its good to sweat sometimes. I filled one whole garbage bag with stuff, not that anyone would be able to tell by looking at it, but it is better, I can tell. And really that is all that matters. So, I see in my near future, lots more weeding, lucky me! but, I'm ok with it. I only got mad last night because of the crappy sprinkler (yes, before it was raining, and while it was raining, the sprinkler was going) that gets stuck...and then you have to un-stick it, and then it get stuck again..and I became very much irritated with it and so then I just left it, and continued weeding!I just couldn't stand it anymore.. So nothing exciting, I know, I'm sorry. My life just isn't very exciting. Not that it really matters anyways. Well, tomorrow is Friday and I don't have anything for the photo challenge, mainly because the times for me to take pics of transportation are AFTER the challenge is done, so I might just skip this one. I'm interested to see what it is going to be. Hope you all have a great Thursday. C-ya later.

The cat, is not mine, its the neighbor's brother's cat, his name it Dagwood, I call him Dag. He only has a nub of a tail, and he meows a lot. But now his owner is gone, because they got into a fight about something, who knows. But the neighbor made him leave and he left the cats, one of which lived in our garage for like 3 days. I don't know where that one is, I think in the other garage. Dag is a helper, likes to follow you around the yard and talk to you. I was pretty sure he was going to jump in the car with me this morning. I feel bad for him though, because he's all alone and he's a good cat. So we feed him and leave water for him, and pet him till we figure out if his owner is coming back for them. I didn't really do very much this weekend, because it was like 90+ degrees and humid and just plain gross outside. Hung out, did laundry, and tried to stay inside until like 8pm when it started to cool off (barely) and I did go for a few short bike rides. Hopefully, my pumpkins will grow like crazy and then I can sell them along with my veggies. I know nothing about pumpkins and since these were farm pumpkins and I have no idea how big the get or how anything. I know that they are a vine, along the ground. That's all I know. So maybe I'll have to do a little searching so that I know what I'm getting myself into. Of course, I will keep you all updated on that. Well, I think that's all I have for today..

The first one is my foot, I thought that it looked cool for some reason, ignore the fact that I need a new paint job :P. Then there is the cat, she isn't a very good subject because when she gets where I want her to be, she moves! And the light isn't the best but I liked that about them. The other one is of the peonies that I cut and I just think they look cool squished together and I liked the shadow of the pointy petals on the pink petals. I finally got to take my bike out for a little ride last night, even though it was warm out. Its been in the 90's here for the past 4 days..makes it hard to want to do anything outside. The bike is pretty nice, I'm not used to it so it feels kinda weird, kind of like a new car. Things work and feel differently. But I'm cool with that, as long as it doesn't make my ass hurt! My goal is to start riding to B/F's house, which is only about a mile from my house. There really is no reason for me to drive over there to hang out, especially if we are not going to go anywhere that requires the car. I really feel like it is a waste.
These pictures I took this morning. We have a major set (one of the only) of railroad tracks behind the building and a lot of times there are interesting things coming in (or going out I guess) on the tracks and I saw these giant spools and I thought that they looked pretty cool. Just sitting there. I don't know what is on them but they are huge.
Well, I'm going to get some work done. but tomorrow I will be posting some more pictures of my garden. It is grown so much since the last time. Ya'll have a good day- Ohh BTW my Twins won last night , against the Braves. So, GO TWINS!

Ok, so these are a few pics that I took at work today. This is a platter of glue- a platter is a metal box like 4x4 and like 4 or 5 inches high- honestly I don't know. Anyways, they fill it with glue and it looks kinda cool. The top one is the close up and the bottom one gives you an idea of how it looks in the middle.. And if some of you don't know- I work in a place that makes glue (not the kind made with horses or animals). Its made with rubber and other junk that I don't really know anything about- but I work in the lab.. So, makes ya wonder what kind of show they are running
Its a green Diamondback. I haven't really had a ton of time (or energy) to really get out and ride it, I"m still getting it adjusted to where I like it. But it is nice to have a bike that isn't WAY to small for me.

Here is a picture that I took the other night and I thought that it would count as a landscape for the Funky Photo. I have other ones but this is the one for now. I have a few vacation pictures that are pretty cool. If you think this "landscape" looks familiar it is- it's my yard(provided that you have seen my yard before, obviously) minus two HUGE elm trees that were cut down in the fall. We think that they had dutch elm disease. So if you see the pots on the left side, there used to be a tree there and then if you go across to the right, where there is a black line that used to be a tree.. Well I think thats all I have for now, maybe for today, I have lots of work to get done.

This is the soon to be garden, now its just a box filled with dirt, soon to be amended with compost (whoo hoo) then I can plant , provided I can find replacement seeds for my target seeds. Tree man will be watching over it, making sure that it grows like crazy. I'd like to have enough so that I can sell some stuff (veggies) out on the street, make a little yarn money. He's on the tree in the back ground. So what else.. well, Kevyn Burger will be having surgery tomorrow (send her good energy) and I just found out something so cool. I sent off an e-mail to the lovely people at Fifth Element, a local record shop operated by a local record label, Kevyn loves Atmosphere, he's a local hip-hop artist (NOT a rapper, there IS a difference) and all I was asking of the was to post some comments on her blog to send her some happiness, just something fun. But the response that I got was SO cool. They wanted her address so they could send her out a care package. I just thought that it was so cool way more than I was asking them to do. But ever since the b/f got me into the label and the artists I've liked them and I like to support the local stuff and I think its cool when they support people who support them. That's kinda wordy but I'm sure you all understand what I'm saying. There is one guy who I think works all day everyday because when ever we go there he is working, but he gives B/F a discount, how cool is that.. And its not like we/ he go (es) there all the time or anything. But anyways, I'm going to eat lunch and check out the paper. SO that's all for me, unless I think of something that can't wait. Have a safe weekend.
