An Old Tale

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The other day I went outside to help my mother with groceries. I was greeted with a lovely sunset. It was about way past time it should have been, so it was a bit odd. The sky was a bright red, and was eerie.


It reminded me of a story that my mother had told me. My great grandmother had told my mother a way to predict hurricanes back in the old day. Just like in the book Their Eyes Were Watching God, people had ways to tell if something was coming. I don’t know how accurate it is, but when I storm is off the coast the sun DOES change. So seeing this isn’t very nice. Maybe a storm is just waving a far away hello.

Pictographs

Saturday, September 17, 2011

The other day was really nice out. Plus I was gaining my strength back, and the outdoors kept calling me. It's really annoying for something to keep calling your name over and over again. What's a girl going to do?

Mostly ignore it. But the outdoors was to handsome the other day for me to resist. It was sunny, low humidity, and wasn't trying to kill its next innocent victim with heat.

I don't appreciate that.

Anywayz, off I went to take some "photographs." It was fun, and humiliating at them same time. My baby brother is quite talented in taking photos. I tried to imitate him, but failed. All the macros, flash, and whatever setting I could get working didn't let my photographs come close to his. Unfortunately that means I have to take more photos, but oh well. I'll just do it when the outdoors starts calling my name again.

I love my pink Mexican Petunia's. The purple cousin of it WILL take over the designated area it's planted in. This one grows into a elegant bush. It's not as thick and luscious as its purple cousin, but having not to pull out a ridiculous amount to stop it from killing your other plants makes it perfect.

The awe inspiring pineapple.  Even more inspiring is that snake’s call home where it resides. Sigh... Now I can't wait till it gets cooler so I won’t have to run around the yard anymore.
 
An American Beauty Berry. I hear it can be expensive for some unbeknownst reason. Kind of weird with all of those seeds, huh? Anyway, while searching the all knowing world wide web, I found out it's an insect repellant. Great excuse to use with someone who wants to keep cutting them down. Plus according to Wikipedia, they may be edible. Um, I'll just pass on that pone. Don't want to get sick or turn violet for that matter..   

 SO I have three wonderful pics, and what to do with them all? Why use them for some scripts I found randomly the other day. Oh to Joy.

A Tree that is a Family

Sunday, September 4, 2011

I’m finally going to start a family tree.  Amazingly, both sides of my family, with different backgrounds, do not have a clue who each other is. It’s important for me to have an understanding of who I am, and where I come from. Right now my family has only the slightest clue about who we are. Seeing someone that can trace their background for generations is a little disheartening, so maybe that can end someday.

Crosses figures.

The software I’m using is My Heritage Tree Builder. I like it so far, so that’s a good thing. As of now, I’ll take the easy route and go check my family’s facebook information. Sneaking is always fun. Bad part is that sneaking around won’t get me the information I’ll need, but it will be fun while it last. Then comes the hard part of actually talking to people. The world will soon come to an end…
