Just Stuff

On Friday evening, John and I made our way over to the other side of the house and shared a few drinks with the guys. In a case of beer they had, they discovered this…

005Yes, a can of Bud with no printing, just the white base coat. Strange. They’re wondering if it’s worth anything. For their benefit, I catalogued the anomaly. I doubt anything will come of it, but they seemed to think it was pretty special. Men!

It’s been a very warm weekend here, and it doesn’t seem that today will be any different. I was up fairly early this morning (7ish) and, while the coffee was brewing, took the camera outside.

As you can see by the picture below, the chives are blooming and they’re really pretty. I never realized their blooms were that intense a shade of purple. They’re also very attractive to the bees. The stand of chives was virtually abuzz with them. As always, if you click on the picture, you’ll see the larger, more detailed, version.


And the final thing that caught my eye this morning…

013I just happened to see this as I glanced out the kitchen window. Something on the upstairs “deck” (it’s no more than a landing for the stairs) was reflecting on to the workshop, directly above a hoe leaning against the wall. It was kind of magical and made me think of movies like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, or some kind of magical sceptre.

Oh, the things that capture my fancy!

  1. You were lucky to be there at the moment when the star was right above the hoe. Have you ever eaten the chive blossoms?
