Lately my brain seems to be on random fire so I thought why not share some of this randomness with you so you can know what its like to live inside my head on a daily basis.
On the way to our local “big city” yesterday morning we saw these clouds.
Pretty and strange all at the same time. Do you see the wavy layers in them? Does anyone know what type of cloud that is? I’d love to know.
By the time we arrived at our appointment in “big city” they were dumping much, much rain and where was my umbrella? In the trunk of the car. Not real helpful there. Note to self: keep the umbrella in the back seat, not in the trunk.
Tonight I took a walk about. I waited until it was almost dark as it’s been so hot and sticky here like much of the rest of the country. I.do.not.do.humid and that my friends is an understatement. If I didn’t work in air conditioning all day maybe I would be more conditioned for it, but I’m not. Nuff said.
Anyway, for years I’ve wanted to plant pumpkins and finally this year, we did! I was so excited when I finally got approval from the Pumpkin-nator who just so happens to live with me.
We planted the “Big boys”, the ones that get gigantic. I hadn’t look at them for a couple of weeks and they’ve grown a bunch since I saw them last. They are full of blooms. I picked a few of the blooms so the other ones produce better pumpkins. My goal is for each of the grandkids to have a giganto pumpkin for themselves. We’ll see how it goes as all I have yet is blooms.
And for my last random thought…have you ever had a shirt that you got a stain on this first time you wore it? I do! The first time I wore this I splattered bacon grease on the front. Grrr! Someday I will get that apron made. Anyhoo, I saw a post on Pinterest about bleaching a design on an old cotton t-shirt. My shirt wasn’t old but I wasn’t going to wear it anymore with the grease spots so what was I out?
Take a Clorox bleach pen and draw a design on the shirt, let is set for 15 – 20 minutes, rinse, launder as usual and wallah, you have a new shirt, kind of. I don’t think it’s too bad for a first time try. I can see where the outline is and where I painted it in but now I know what to do differently should I need to do this again. At least you can’t see the grease spots anymore and that my friends, makes me very happy!
