Sparks and Awww Monday

Awww Monday and Sparks

Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 

 

If you are not familiar with how Sparks began read below:

McGuffy’s, who was hosting the Sparks, is on hiatus. She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Early Morning Sighting

Another sighting on my EMWs.  This mailbox post cap caught my attention.
Why would you have a pyramid mirror on your mailbox?
So many thoughts ran thru my mind's eye.
We have a doomed cap on our post.  The birds  perch they think it is their loo.
Maybe to keep  birds from  using it as their loo.
Maybe the most logic answer is so they can see traffic as the back out?
But I think the shape of it would distort the view. 
Any idea?


Beautiful Magnolia I often see on one of my walking routes. 
Mid way up on the left see the white bloom?  It might be the last bloom of the season
Bottom right one is already brown

Saturday Symmetry and snicker

This new construction is just about a 1/2 block for Logan's and Seaboard.
We heard rumblings of multistory multi use.  The traffic will be
multi madness when it is completed.  


New high rise apartments in downtown 



I'm sure most of you have tried to pill your pet at one time or another.
Angel Madi was quite talented. 
I put hers in a pill pocket..she could eat the entire pill pocket leaving the pill
 all slobbery and slippery.

Thursday This and That

Kit, aka mom of Pup, Kat and Rocky, sent me this with a note saying
"This is us Sister".  We are both only children.  We have adopted each other as 'Heart Sisters'.   Kit and I are Southern gals thru and thru.



Thoroughly Poetic Thursday will return October 21, 2021
Today a few random photos from our trip the Cedar Creek Gallery in early October.




I saw this list of Animal Opposites in the October 2021 issue of Reader's Digest.  I thought they were amusing.  My translation is on the right.

Happy Tuesday Trek: Pumpkins R US part 2

  

Hosted by Comedy Plus   

Pumpkins make us happy!!

Recently we attended the annual Cedar Creek Gallery glass pumpkin exhibit.  We always buy at least one for us and one for our daughter and SIL (son-in-law).

The collage below shows our recent purchases.  Top photo is one we bought for our daughter and SIL,  bottom photo are our two new ones.  I especially like the red and green.  

Here in the house of pumpkins we are all about stems.  The curlier the better.

Our pumpkin on the right is #97 of 100 limited edition by renowned glass blower and potter Lisa Oakley.  We were thrilled to arrive in time to buy one of these.

This collage is of some of the other glass pumpkins and friendship houses.



I'm seeing  many very entertaining Halloween Decorations.  I'll be sharing them throughout the month.

Cedar Creek has all kinds of fun and happy art...
This one is for my friend Pix!!

Pumpkins R US part 1

We love pumpkins  

Recently we took a short trip to the NC Farmer's Market to
buy some pumpkins.


Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere and not a pie in sight but evidently Jarrahdales are great for pies.  Never heard of them but I asked GiGi Google if they made green pies... this is what I found
