to everything there is a season

October 18, 2012

Events overtook me and the tomatoes are still waiting to have the blighted bits taken off and there’s now a pineapple joining them on the kitchen table – along with the papers, books, comics, lego  and other things that really ought to go home. The house doesn’t smell like a pickle factory either. Sorry Boo.

But Rella, who has to go to a party and pretend to be Katy Perry, has a bright pink wig, some tights, a white frock (that isn’t nearly bouffant enough for the task, but we’ll let that slide) and some false eyelashes (which are definitely up to the task) and a whole load of sweets, the type of which I would never have let her buy when she was little. So she’s all right. And Arlo took part in the year 7 Performing Arts showcase at school and it appears that he’s not bad at dance, so that’s something too.

This morning I took a photo of the sky reflected in some water. When I looked at the photo later  I couldn’t work out what was wrong with it because it seemed out of focus in a strange way. Then I remembered it was water, not sky and everything fell into place – well almost. Strange how things can play tricks on you.

I also took a photo of a poem that had been pinned to a felled tree – we live in that kind of town – but I haven’t uploaded it yet.

    This photo is beautiful! Love the green and blue. Nature sort of calms our crazy lives sometimes, doesn’t it? 🙂
