Yesterday was a terrific day full of natural beauty. Today, the hawks have been taunting me (just as they get almost close enough to snap, they swoop away - meanies). That's okay. I think yesterday's wonders were great enough to have a lasting after-effect.
This week's list of things I think are worth saying "Wahoo!" about:
1. My newest little pile of books (in the front).
Top to bottom:
Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell
Plane Insanity by Elliott Hester
Photography by Tom Ang
Gah, too tired to type that title - the Audubon Insect Guide (I hate looking at bugs, but it's informative and our only bookstore didn't have a butterfly guide)
The Next Century by David Halberstam
I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
Ticket to Tomorrow by Carol Cox
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
Frangipani by Celestine Vaite
. . . The Secret Lives of People in Love just happened to be sitting there; it's not new (but I loved it).
They're totally out of order. Several came from Paperback Swap, one from the library sale (the Halberstam), and I bought the photography book a while back but forgot to mention it. Ticket to Tomorrow is a book I won at Callapidder Days in one of Katrina's wonderful drawings. In case you're wondering, I plunked the books in front of another pile so you could have fun squinting at more books in the background, although you can click on the photo to see a larger image.
2. Remember me?
I grew and grew and now this is what I look like. I'm about to bloom:
3. On the fence and looking for love (a green anole lizard):
5. Pretties. I'm thankful for pretties.
6. I still haven't killed my orchid!!! Can you believe it? Over a month and I have two last buds about to bloom. Now, I just have to locate my orchid book so I can find out what you do to keep them alive when they're not blooming.
Happy Wednesday from Bookfool!
