Holy cow it's been one of those weeks. It really wasn't until Friday that I thought it was one of "those weeks". Work had me in an uproar but that's another story best left unsaid. The thing is, I've been struggling with blogging. I've gone long between posts, at least for me anyway. I took a look back at some blog posts from years back to see what I had to write about. I kept thinking my life must have been more exciting back then. Nope..same old same old. I've been blogging for 9 1/2 years now and I feel like I'm repeating each year with pics of the same things only older and bigger...I'm not really just referring to me! Ha! Anyway, I did have a few pics to put in and try and get a post out. I was taking a bunch of shots the other day after a nice rain. We've been lucky with lots of rain to keep our lawns bright green and the garden overflowing with lovely tomatoes. I took a few of the Creepy Woods and just had to share one particularly weird one. This one is for my dear friend Shady. He keeps telling me that the Yeti lives in the Creepy Woods. I think I caught a pic of him.
Look to the right and see if you can pick out that dark brown hairy thing....hmmmm. Keeping with the weird and wacky pics, when we were at the orchard last week we bought some different peaches. Donut peaches. Can you see why the name?
Very tastey, very low in calories compared to a Dunkin Donut! Another photo made me wonder if we lived near a lake.
I took this one from the top of the hill behind our house. It's just clouds across the way but I can always pretend we live near a lake. I keep telling Jack we need to sell and buy a lake house. Problem is we don't live near a lake and I'm not in the mood to move and some how I doubt the lake will come to us. As I mentioned earlier, we have had some nice rain. We also have had some nice rainbows.
Not the clearest shot but it looked pretty clear in person. These next 2 pics are not the weird and crazy....
It's Jack checking out his new apple tree. He's holding a few green peppers from the garden. That reminded me that I took a pic of some stuffed peppers I made last week.
Hence the amazing stuffed peppers. Yes, this post is bouncing around. It's how my mind is working these days. As I contemplate about blog posts being the same over the years I remembered my Mom giving me something she found of mine from years ago. My high school activity pass we had to get each year. Of course it had a photo on it.
That's me from 1968....fast forward to the here and now.
As Jack noted..."Hey, you had the same haircut back then"....yep, sometimes it's "same old, same old" and "weird and wacky all in one.
