Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!

This may be the last of of the poppy field pics. I’m not sure – it seems like I’ve posted so many!  But I like this one with the snow-capped mountain in the background.

On with other randomness:

What I’ve been reading:


Well, I’ve actually been listening to this while I drive (14 separate disks!!!)…it’s taking me a while! I’m on disk 12 and it’s just getting to the good part – the wrapping up part.  I’ve enjoyed it, but think I should’ve listened through audible so I could increase the speed. :o)



These two I read for my book club group.  Both were really good, but I especially liked Willowkeep.

Another very random thing:  I learned about hydroponic lettuce! I am I the last to know about this? I thought it was very interesting!

And lastly, I’m always interested to learn there’s actual terms for certain things.  Like the time I posted about learning there was an actual word (Bento) for cute little lunch items!  This time, I’m surprised there’s an actual name for a technique I’ve semi-used for years: The Pomodoro Technique.  I think I can use this technique even more scientifically and efficiently that I have in the past, so I think I’ll study it a bit further.  BUT…there’s an actual name for it!  You all have probably used it too!

That’s it for this Monday.  Have a great day.  Do something NEW…or go find NEW stuff out!



a NEW photo of my week


Happy Tuesday!  I finally got a chance to go to the poppy field to shoot over the weekend. I have a few more photos I’ll likely share in upcoming posts. 🙂

We had a nice, but busy and productive long weekend.  Sometimes it’s good just to stay home on Memorial Day weekend!  Friday was busy with high school graduation and festivities afterward. I got some projects underway, and even enjoyed a couple of games of racquetball with hubby.  Family dinners on Sunday and Monday made for a very nice weekend.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!  I was thrilled when my friend told me she knew the trail where these  wild poppies grow, and took me there many months ago.  When I went again last week, there were a lot of buds not yet in bloom, so I plan to go out again.  I’ll keep you updated!

This is my mantra for this week: “Blessed are those who have the ability to laugh at themselves, they will never cease to be amused!!!”  Oh man!  Was I ever amused this week!  I’d tell you about it, but really, I should have been on candid camera, cuz it was ridiculous!  (Just use your imagination).

Speaking of laughing…don’t you just love that you can pin all the really funny stuff on Pinterest  and have a customized, exactly-your- sort-of-humor, laugh-fest any time you want to go re-read all your pins?  It’s a wonderful thing!  Here’s a few of mine:

Have a great day!  I hope you have a NEW laugh or two.
