Sept. 27, 2011 - Day 565

Photosynthesis at work: the carrot tops turned green when exposed to sunlight. I decided the foliage is pretty and I'm trying to get the roots longer so I can pot them and see what results.

Sept. 26, 2011 - Day 564

Over the weekend I enjoyed watching this pattern on the floor flow back and forth as the tree outside the window made the shadows dance.

Sept. 25, 2011 - Day 563

Some gourds are really creepy looking. At first I thought the ones in the front looked like giant slugs.

Sept. 24, 2011 - Day 562

This is the only thing that looked interesting rather than gross when I cleaned out the fridge.

Sept. 23, 2011 - Day 561

Some friends and I went to a great dance performance at a new venue with funky decor. Too bad the photo of the wall of top hats didn't turn out.

Sept. 22, 2011 - Day 560

All of my plants seem happy that it's no longer more than 100 degrees every day. This one has begun to bloom quite prolifically.

Sept. 21, 2011 - Day 559

Mmmm... dinner from Cosmic Cafe and a peek at the new paintings. So lovely and so much fun!

Sept. 20, 2011 - Day 558

These things really are brilliant for moving furniture.

Sept. 19, 2011 - Day 557

Some of the boards on the new gate look a little furry.

Sept. 18, 2011 - Day 556

I love the way this vine cascades through the fence looking like a waterfall.

Sept. 17, 2011 - Day 555

Raindrops after midnight - about 5 hours of rain since earlier in the evening.

Sept. 16, 2011 - Day 554

The first sign it's raining is the puddles forming under the line of the porch roof.

Sept. 15, 2011 - Day 553

A house in our neighborhood has a lush yard and a curbside watering hole for passing cats and dogs - complete with sculptures!

Sept. 14, 2011 - Day 552

I had a craving for Chinese food and had to visit the restaurant in our old office building for lunch. Once that idea was in my head it was not going to be dislodged.

Sept. 13, 2011 - Day 551

The clouds are beginning to look promising for rain.

Sept. 12, 2011 - Day 550

The salvia is doing well, though I haven't seen the hummingbirds feeding from it.

Sept. 11, 2011 - Day 549

The phone decided to take a vacation, and I'll be a little less connected until the new battery arrives.

Sept. 10, 2011 - Day 548

There's a green pen that needs to go, though it did spark a happy memory of a swimming pool that would stamp your hand in emerald ink if you left and intended to come back.

Sept. 9, 2011 - Day 547

Just hanging out - it's Friday.

Sept. 8, 2011 - Day 546

I really do enjoy the drive-through car wash. Too bad it's over so quickly.

Sept. 7, 2011 - Day 545

I had a bit of help with my homework tonight, which is to say, it took a while to get started.

Sept. 6, 2011 - Day 544

Following up the art car from the other day, here's a neighbor's creative garage door decor. It always makes me chuckle.

Sept. 5, 2011 - Day 543

My cute new colander - perfect for small things - like a handful of grapes!

Sept. 4, 2011 - Day 542

We saw a story recently about a pizza place that has almost anything as toppings, including macaroni and cheese. So last night we tried it at home. Not bad, but next time with more interesting mac and cheese.

Sept. 3, 2011 - Day 541

Now this is a custom paint job! Love it!

Sept. 2, 1011 - Day 540

I guess this flower bed has been getting enough water. (See the mushrooms in the back.)

Sept. 1, 2011 - Day 539

A common household view, and a bit of an optical illusion.
