Randomosity…


A few odds and ends from the camera this week...



Which means fall is just around the corner...




FIVE RANDOM THOUGHTS ABOUT PINTEREST...

1)  I was perusing Pinterest earlier and came upon this link to “23Ways to Make Your Piecrusts More Beautiful.”  You know, these days, I just throw the top crust on the top and crimp them together whichever way is most expedient, but this link is truly inspirational.  I think I might try to go back to trying to make my piecrusts more beautiful.  I used to do that stuff when I was young and nutty.

2)  Speaking of Pinterest, I follow a bunch of cat and kitten pins.  I just love looking at cats, petting cats, talking to cats, being around cats.  I want a cat really badly.  Can you tell?  But right now is not the time.  I keep telling myself that.  Someday I might just believe it.  Actually, it is true.  But, I think spring might really be the right time.

3)  I also repin a lot of crochet patterns.  I have so many of them pinned, that it would take me about 2,000 years to actually complete a third of them.  But, the good thing is that they take up absolutely no space in my house and I won’t ever have to recycle them or feel guilty for investing good money into patterns I will never make.  Yes, it’s a good thing…

4)  I am constantly disappointed by the Photography page on Pinterest.  While I keep hoping for art photos, it’s mostly pregnancy, wedding and baby photos.  Nothing wrong with that, it’s just that I’m not interested in those things with regard to photography.  Hmmmm...  Maybe I should be looking at the art page.


5)  It may seem like I spend a lot of time on Pinterest since I used my whole page today talking about it, but I vowed the first time I looked at the site, that I would only go on there once or twice a week and I’ve stuck to that.  Otherwise, there’s the day right there!  It’s amazing how much stuff is on the internet and how much of it gets pinned.  Wow!  And you know how one thing leads to another…

I don't belong to Pinterest, and there's a reason for that. lol I'd like it too much. Definitely have a kitty! Have a kitty. We have four and have never regretted it. So much joy. And i've read they're excellent for one's blood pressure!

We don't have television at our house at all. Not one channel. For about five years now. So when I hear all these ladies talking about this show & that show & "their" show & more.. I feel justified that when I have time to sit down & put my feet up at the end of the day - my couch potato time where I let my mind veg out & take in the visual inspiration - is Pinterest. :)
I love your photos - especially that TREE! That is a very fine tree!!

Debbie said...

Great photos! I love the Queen Anne's lace and that great old tree.

I belong to Pinterest but I never visit. I can't seem to figure out what to do on it. The way you use it sounds fun though.

We have two cats and they bring us sooooooo much joy!

Kelly said...

Number 5 made me laugh! I can't wait for fall.

augcott said...

Dang!
Now you've got me craving Apple Cider Donuts! LOL

Ida said...

Cider Donuts sound so yummy. Yep, Fall is rapidly approaching. I love fall baking.

I've only visited Pinterest once or twice. I had an account but then closed it. I already spend way to much time viewing blogs to add anything more.

I love pinterest too - but don't go real often. After being there a while I get so overwhelmed with each thing going in a different direction so I get off - but I do love it and have made some great recipes and some fun crafts. Plus party ideas - love the party ideas. People are so clever!!!

Sandra said...

that tree is just plain marvelous.. and i have never heard of a cider donut but since i love cider and donuts i bet i would. that flower pic is awesome, i enlarged and can see each little tiny starry shape. beautiful.
i have never been to pinterest, i spend most of my day blogging and a few quick trips to face book...and i need to give up a few hours of that...

Rose said...

You sound about the crocheting the way I am about quilting...I would never reach the end of the list of what I want to make, even if I lived to be a thousand years old.

Rose said...

Also, meant to say I love those last two shots...
