Sometimes the Camera Wanders…

just like my mind!  Since I have been spending ever so much time at home because the price of gasoline has driven me to do so, I just have not been taking so many photos.  I suppose I could waltz up into the woods and take some pictures, but…yeah, there are endless tasks calling out that supersede any such notion.

One such task ocurred yesterday when I opened the camper to take a look at the inside.  GROSS!!!!!  I can assure you that I am ever-conscious about certain things and one of them is that we must, must, must leave the doors open on the refrigerator and freezer in the camper over the winter.  That said,  I always insert something to keep the doors ajar.  Yesterday, when I  looked, the doors were both *closed*.  Bravely, I slowly opened one door at a time, fearful that a dark mold-monster would grab me by the neck…didn’t happen.  Actually,  I think because of the minimum mold growth inside the fridge, someone closed the doors ( by accident, to be sure) rather recently.

I trudged back up to the house and filled a bucket with hot soapy, with a tad of bleach added water.  I faithfully scrubbed every square inch of that unit, even taking out the shelving to make sure that nothing remained untouched!  I propped a broomstick in the doors, making them gape even more open than usual. I got to thinking about this…we have owned that camper since 2002 and this is the first time this has happened. I guess all in all, that isn’t too bad. But,  it did set me back about an hour….

This next photo was taken last week. Mark and I went to the pond behind Arby’s because I just like to see what is back there from time to time. I walked a bit and saw some ducks.  Unfortunately, there were a bunch of people there as well. There were several young girls…maybe 10 or11 yearsold. There were six adults as well. In the water were three Mallard drakes, friendly little fellows who came on over to see if they might be so fortunate as to coerce a few tidbits of food.

I grew rather annoyed that the (stupid) girls were throwing pebbles to the ducks to see if they would eat them. The (stupid) adults were chatting as though oblivious to the girls’ activity.  As you can see,  the ducks were smart enough to discern that they were being teased and only looked under the water to see.  If the duckshadn’t hadsuch good sense, I think I might have reprimanded those naughty children right in front of  the (mindless) parents.

And the last photo is funny, although you would never know it….

As I sat on the porch swing yesterday morning (as I do most every morning for a bit) it was breezy. As  I sat on my swing, I noticed the Pansies nodding in the wind. No  big deal.  But, as I watched, I couldnot help but laugh!  The bright yellow flower, closest, was nodding its pretty face affirmatively.  The little flower would bob up and down, up and down. On the opposite end of the pot, the pale flower vigorously shook its “head” from side to side, as though vehemently opposing the brighter flower!

Now, about that post (for the mini implant) I had inserted last Friday…The post felt somewhat uncomfortable on Saturday.  The dentist called the house and asked how it was doing.  I told him it felt like there was pressure there and he asked if I had taken any Ibuprophen.  I told him no and he said I really should take it for 24 hours.  Iwas told it not only reduces swelling, but also inflammation.  Well, Idid as the doctor ordered and everything was fine.  The funny thing is,  I discovered it was the site where the novacaine was injected that was bothering me, not the post! I am surprised, but there is no pain or discomfort whatsoever!  I haven’t felt like choking and coughing , either, as I no longer have to wear the temporary tooth.  I am so excited!

  1. You showed a considerable amount of restraint! I would definitely have said something to the kids. What is wrong with kids today…throwing pebbles / rocks…whatever… at those poor ducks???? The parents are no better! It makes me so mad!!

    I hear you about the mold situation…I have that very same problem at the cottage and just got done scrubbing down the inside of the fridge and the freezer. It seems to be a never ending battle!

    Your flowers are so pretty! I haven’t even had the time to go look at flowers, let alone plant any. Ah well.

    So glad to hear that your tooth is better!
