263/365…. Thunder Storm

Well, we knew it had to end. All that beautiful 80+ sunshine and blue skies that we had since the last part of June has given away to Fall. Today the skies over Port Orchard turned dark and full of water and noise. Lots and lots of noise.

Oh, how I love thunderstorms. 😀

First the skies darkened…

Then they opened up….

262/365 Fuzzy Caterpillar

This photo was part of my latest submission to Butterflies and Moths of North America (www.butterfliesandmoths.org). During a walk in the woods I saw some chewed up milkweed leaves and expected to find Monarch caterpillars. Instead I found caterpillars of the Milkweed Tussock Moth (or Milkweed Tiger Moth) – Euchaetes egle. The caterpillar is quite handsome, more so than the moth. 😀

260/365 From days past

Was doing some packing/organizing for my move next week and found these in one of the tubs. They are ‘necklaces’ of a sort. Grograin ribbon with designs added using sequenes (sp?). They are fastened with snaps. They had to be my grandmothers and probably she made them during the 1940’s time frame. Thought they were interesting and you all might enjoy seeing something from ages past.

Going to be a really busy week for me. Finishing up my packing for my move on the 25th. Then I have three days to move AND clean up my former apartment. Wish I were younger and didn’t have bad knees even for just that time frame…lol.

Ya’ll have a great week.

258/365: Let there be light!

We got ourselves some new lights for the living room.  The old ones came with us from our previous house 13 years ago, so thought it was time for a change…



As a bonus, here are some roses I bought, displayed in my nan’s favourite vase:

257/365 – My first attempt at Jelly


I’ve made lots of jam, but this is my first attempt at making jelly. Grape jelly, to be precise.


After cooking the fruit as you do for jam, you strain it through a fine cheesecloth. Then you cook the juice and add the rest of the ingredients.
