Random Thoughts on a Wednesday

I was just wondering, uh… now I forget. It’s a rainy day in Central Illinois.  It’s been rainy for a few days now.  Unusual in our experience here.  It reminds us of Oregon.  Day after day of rain and rain and rain.  It’s sort of nice actually. Leaves are falling, and all over the ground.Continue reading “Random Thoughts on a Wednesday”

Fall-ing

Just received a text message from the weather channel… Freeze Warning. I guess fall is coming in like a lion. Does that even apply? I have no idea. The leaves are coming down now. We had our first city leaf pick up this week. There will be four spread over three months. First round… 18Continue reading “Fall-ing”

10 Word Review – The Fall

A quick word before the review takes over this post.  This review refers to the television series by BBC available in the states on Netflix instant play. Sleek. Gritty. Stylized. Anderson. Story. Dornan. Smart. Creepy. Gripping. YES.

Falling For Illinois

It’s a rainy, windy, blustery, wet day here in Illinois.  It started yesterday, the blue sky fading as the clouds came in and the rain and wind started up.  It reminds me of an Oregon Fall.  Loads of rain, gray skies, everything just getting soaked. It’s a cup of coffee read a book kind ofContinue reading “Falling For Illinois”

Maintenance

Hey all… been a few days.  Again.  We had a busy weekend, a lay low day on Monday (Karen had to work, but we didn’t go anywhere), went to get some new glasses ordered for Karen yesterday and stopped off at the park to take the dogs for a walk on the way home, andContinue reading “Maintenance”

Floatin

Floating Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl I think Weston and Riley’s outside water bowl needs to be emptied and re-filled, don’t you? Though really…. they don’t stay out long enough in the rain to need a drink. They are fair weather pups. No rain shall touch them… if they can help it.

Fall

Fall Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl I decided, since I’m pretty behind in posting the inner workings of our lives over the last couple of months, I would sort of post a general overview of what’s happened, what we’ve been up to, and general “stuff” related to that. It’s fall now. Obvious, I know. For usContinue reading “Fall”

Photo Hunt – Purple

In The Clear, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The theme for this week’s Photo Hunt is purple. I remembered that I’d taken a few shots during the fall of 2007 that might fit the bill and when I looked I discovered this one.  Then I realized I’d posted it here at the Think Tank before.  AhContinue reading “Photo Hunt – Purple”

Geranium

Geranium, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Sometimes a photo turns out differently from what you expected. I intended to take this as a macro shot, which I did. I just didn’t realize how it would look after it was taken. There’s something about it, very much like a portrait of a flower. I liked it.

Savoring The Day

I feel like I’m playing hookie. Always do. It’s Veteran’s Day and I don’t have to work today. Neither does Karen. Nice. We’re both sitting in the office, each at our respective desks on our respective computers, each with a cup of tea, music playing, and Weston curled up sleeping on his bed next toContinue reading “Savoring The Day”

Mums The Word

Mums Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl I took this one yesterday. They are the last flowers to bloom in our yard this year and are putting up a good fight, hanging on pretty well. The dew was very heavy yesterday, as it’s been most days in the last week or so. Lots of fog hanging lowContinue reading “Mums The Word”
