Punk Rock Turtle..

I just had to put this picture up for everyone..
Here is a turtle with a punk hairdo..not really, it is algae growing on his head..
He is kind of scary and cute at the same time..
Figured this picture would start your Monday off with a laugh.

The Great Shadow Shot Sunday..

As the angels were chatting amongst themselves on the deck, they left a lovely shadow..Okay, I lied, I put them in a circle..but when I get desperate, I get carried away.
Now, I decide to change curtains and do a little cleaning..and there before me is a lovely shadow..
Don't look too hard, this is before I cleaned..
But my last shot is really quite nice, the plant hanging gave a great picture..Hey Harriet has Shadow Shot Sunday, every week..go to her blog and visit, even join in. All the pictures, from bloggers, are really wonderful and actually like works of art..
My Dear Hey Harriet, will see you again, next week..

My Little Friend..

Was happy to get a picture of this Great Spangled Fritillary , before it flew away..The only reason I know the name of this butterfly, I have a book in front of me telling me about it..It shows up in late June, early September..We use to have many Monarchs, but I saw only a couple this year..There is something happy about a butterfly..watching them go from flower to flower. I consider myself lucky to get a few pictures of this one..

Fingerprint Friday..

Today Pampering Beki has Fingerprint Friday..another of my favorite days....This spot is one of my favorites. Usually there are cows in the field..My pictures do not do justice to this Fingerprint..It is gorgeous. It doesn't matter how many times I pass this place, I am always in awe..there is something very special about it to me..
Pampering Beki started this beautiful idea of Fingerprint Friday..Fingerprints from God. It isn't hard to find them, all you have to do is stop and look..they are all around us and it is fun to share your idea of a Fingerprint..Just check out her blog and join in.

We Start A Mercury Retrograde Today..

Just a short reminder we will now be going into a Mercury Retrograde, 23 degrees Libra..it will last till October 15th and then go direct..
This is a time things can get a little mixed up..Any new contracts..read very carefully, some people back their computers up..anything new you buy, might cause a problem..just check and recheck..
If you have to redo someting, this is a good time..They always say anything with "re" in front of the word is what you should work with..
It doesn't always affect everyone..all depends on your Astrology chart and where Mercury sits..
This is something I like to keep a check on..Just for my own personal reasons..Heck, I have had many things go wrong before and Mercury wasn't in retrograde. Like I always say," you rule the stars, the stars don't rule you".
I find this a very interesting planet to watch..

Fall Is In The Air..

Once you start seeing Goldenrod, Daisy Fleabane and Purple Aster..you know it is near the end of summer..I think, I named them correctly..The Aster/Daisy are so alike..
I enjoy the beauty, but always makes me feel a bit sad to see summer is almost over.. Not a big fan of winter.
We are starting to get a chill in the air..As much as I am not happy about winter coming, these wild flowers are a pretty site and worth seeing..

Wonderful Shadow Shot Sunday...

Shadow Shot Sunday is here and
Our Dear Hey Harriet has started a fun time..I am always looking for shadows..My first picture is a bush against the front of the house..then I went to my favorite place, the back deck..I was leaning on the railings, thinking where I would go next and started to laugh..can you see my head between the barn and bush?
Now, that is a shot that had to be taken..and may I say, I was laughing so loud my husband had to check on me..For my grand finale..I dragged a toy stuffed rabbit and sat him on a can..Tell me that isn't cute? There is no stopping me and I have no shame.. Hey Harriet, something has happened to me with this Shadow Shot Sunday..I am out of control and enjoying every minute of it..see you next week.

Interesting News.

People look over the wreck of a wooden ship uncovered by Hurricane Ike on a beach on Fort Morgan Road in Fort Morgan, Ala., Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008. Archeologists say the wreck could be that of a two-masted Civil War schooner that ran aground in 1862 or another ship from some 70 years later. The wreck had already been partially uncovered when Hurricane Camille cleared away sand in 1969. Researchers at the time identified it as the Monticello, a battleship that partially burned when it crashed trying to get past the U.S. Navy and into Mobile Bay during the Civil War. (AP Photo/Press-Register, Guy Busby)

Thought this was very interesting and kind of sad..Can you imagine what a story this ship could tell..

Fingerprint Friday..

Now here is an interesting Fingerprint. A Dragonfly.
I just happened to catch this one and he stayed very patiently for me to get his picture..Isn't he interesting? The picture isn't the best, but you can see him..
There was a blue one flying all over the place, but wouldn't stop for a picture..
Many people use Dragonflies to control the mosquito population..I notice every year there are more and more..all different colors/sizes..

A very interesting Fingerprint and one that has an important job..but then again...everything on this earth, has an important job..
Pampering Beki has Fingerprint Friday, every week..Such a great idea..try and join in. I find it makes you look at so many things with more respect..Things we take for granted..

Tagged /Award...

BubbleBabbles has tagged me and I must admit this is a different kind of tag..Who would I like to play me, in the movies..

My life - The Movie
If you had to select celebrities/actors to play the parts in the story of your life today (including yourself), who would it be and why - this can be based on looks or personality.

1. List the people who would play you, and the key people in your life.
2. Give credit to the person who tagged you.
3. Tag four new people to participate.

The only one I could think of right now is Goldie Hawn..She has done things that really make me laugh..and since I have been doing a few odd things lately, sounds like a good match..Of course we look nothing alike and I am a tad older..notice the "tad"..Okay, I lied, quite a bit older..
Anyway, she seems like a good choice..plus Kurt is from Maine.. I know, I am not born here..but what the heck..this is where I am for now..
Bubs( aka/ Sandra Ree), this is the best I could do..you have to give me "E" for Effort..Be sure to visit BubbleBabbles blog..a wonderful read/photos..I was suppose to tag people..but didn't dare, since not sure I did this right..

Now I would like to thank Lemon Shortbread for the lovely award..she has a wonderful blog and it was so sweet of her to send the award to me..Make sure you visit her blog ....Again..I send this award to all.

My Heart Moon..

Last night I wanted to take a few more pictures of the moon..Well, I had the screen up and I swear a bat was coming at me..I quickly took the picture and shut the screen..I guess my hand shook and the moon looks like a heart..
Isn't it cute..?
I couldn't do that again, if I tried..

Beautiful Harvest Moon

Last night I was able to take a couple of pictures of the beautiful Harvest Moon..It was shinning so nicely..One picture is looking through the curtain..Isn't it wonderful? No matter how many times I see a full moon, I still get excited looking at another. Looking at the moon, always makes me realize...we all have a purpose on earth..the only difference, Mr. Moon knows his..

Shadow Shot Sunday and One Desperate Woman..

The problems I was having getting a Shadow Shot..for one thing it looked like rain, no sun..Okay..I can handle that..turn on a light and use the grandchildren's toys..It is what we call desperate..Pirate Pete, Lasso Sam and Six Shooter Fred were very accommodating..Then I grabbed a toy horse while I was at it..
Now, I see the sun coming out..Ran outside in the rose bushes and grabbed my yard ornament, put it on the back deck and took a shadow shot..Running with that yard ornament is no easy feat..The things I will do for Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday..there is no stopping me..Well, my dear Hey Harriet..see you next week...now I have drag that ornament back to the rose bushes..

Fast Recipe..

I want to share a fast recipe for making, Pickled Beets, Cauliflower, Pickles or any combo you like..I just made the beets yesterday..This recipe is for the refrigerator and will keep up to 9 months..There is a lot of sugar and you can cut that down, if you like..The beets are cooked, cauliflower/carrots should be precooked to crunchy..Cucumbers just wash and slice..
Clean jar, can use quarts if you like...pack vegetables in, I add onions as I go...
Make a syrup on stove..
4 Cups sugar
4 Cups white vinegar
1/2 Cup pickling salt
2 cloves garlic
1 1/3 tsp each...turmeric, celery seed, mustard seed..
Just heat till sugar dissolves and pour over vegetables..put in fridge..Can be used in a few days..

Something quick and you will be happy you didn't waste a veggie..The beets can be made from canned beets too..Enjoy..
