Another Good Day


My bad knee started misbehaving half-way to work this morning. It was unstable all day, and I wasn't sure what the hell I was going to do if it was still hurting when it was time to go home. It did pretty well, though!  I had a few twinges walking home, when I put my weight on it wrong, but it held up.

I pass this tree (and several like it, but none as fine as this one) when I walk to and from work. I think it's a beech. It's an old one and quite lovely.

There's a pedestrian underpass I use to cross the bypass, when I walk to work. It's fairly new. Last spring, there was no graffiti. Slowly the darn kids have painted the hell out of it, and I actually kind of like what they've done with the place.

Pet Sunflower and Pet Spider

Funnel Weaver

Every year, a funnel weaver sets up shop in the corner of my patio door frame. I leave her alone. I figure she's not hurting anything, and she eats lots of bugs.

Little Wing


I found this tiny mothwing while I was out walking this afternoon. The scalloped line along the outer edge is just gorgeous.

Thrift Store Haul

Thrift Store Haul

Somewhere between putting it in my cart and getting it home, a William Sleator book went missing. I'm bummed about that, but it was still a really good thrifting day.

Fuck a goat.
Why are you always telling me to fuck a goat, man?

To Be Read

I've been cheating on "my" library with the public library. The result is that I have a whole lot books I need to get through.

Sidewalk OPEN

Sidewalk OPEN

I walk by this intersection every day, to and from work. I'm not sure what they're doing, but it involved opening up the sidewalk. The sections of concrete were lifted and set to the side, to allow access to the steam tunnel and the pipes below.
