Wicked Walk ~ Labor Day 2017

Good afternoon, dear reader!  I’ve been away for quite some time, trying to get back into the swing of things.  While I was gone, WordPress changed formats so I’m thoroughly confused.  Therefore, if this post looks bad, isn’t centered or whatever……I’m sorry.  I don’t do change well and I’ve had a lot of them thrown…

Wicked Walk 1/21/2017

It has been ages since I’ve taken a really long walk.  A walk which I didn’t have to rush thru like a mad person.  My main purpose of walking today was to get some pictures of these awesome mushrooms I found the previous day.  They peeked their little heads above the tall grass.  Red, slender tubes,…

And the forest smells…like mushrooms.

Normally Texas is hot and dry and not at all friendly towards mushrooms in the summertime. However, the month of August was unusually wet this year and the mushrooms rejoiced.  As I walked down the driveway I could literally smell them.  Their earthly, moist, pungent scent filled my nostrils long before I spied the first…

As I sit here, listening to Hugh Jackman belt out tunes from ‘Oklahoma’, I find it difficult to recall what I did preceding my walk last Wednesday.  However, in my defense, I find it hard to focus on anything when Hugh Jackman is involved. There were trees, mushrooms and leaves present. And it was late…

Coming back from a trip is always a nice thing.  East or west, home is best!  Stripe-Stripe was glad to see me along with all my other little creatures. Here is what I saw. At home. This is Stripe-Stripe’s “Where have you been Mama!?!” face. This is her ‘looking at a flower face’.  It was a…

Piglet, Winnie-The-Pooh’s best friend, paddles furiously to a tune that goes something like this “And the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down and Piglet started bailing!  He was unaware while a’top his chair while bailing he was sailing….” as poor Piglet floats right out of his house, out of his yard and is carried…

Wicked Walk 1/13/2015

As I’ve been super crazy busy this past week, adjusting to my new, super-fantastic job, traveling over-night to Fort Worth for a book convention with one of my bestest friends and just dealing with life in general I find myself one post short for the week and my ‘walk’ not even prepared for you all…

Wicked Walk 12/17/2014

As I pen this post I find it hard to believe that one week from now you will be reading this and it will be Christmas eve!  I also find it hard to believe that on this very wicked walk I got completely and totally lost.  Now I KNEW where I was in the sense…

Wicked Walk 12/10/2014

December the 10th was a really good day.  Not only was the weather perfect for walking, I harvested a spike (perfect double lung shot, pats self on back) and made cookies for Addie’s piano recital.  A well-rounded day.  The early morning hours revealed lots of beauty. Here is what I saw. Dew-coated pod and a…

 Today I cleaned my stove.  This in turn made my counter tops look bad.  So I cleaned them, which in turn made the cabinet faces appear rather horrid.  So I cleaned them, which in turn made the appliances, both large and small, seem a bit crusty.  So I cleaned them, which led to a careful…
