This post, along with many following are only going to be pictures. Pictures of random beautiful things I found while taking a walk or just eating. I don’t usually get out much–I’m usually in the house chillin, watching k-dramas and listening to k-pop, or watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Total Trekkie) and the Justice League, which, by the way, I am a huge fan of comic books but we’ll save that topic for another day. Anyways, I have recenlty been getting out a lot more, and I’ve been seeing a lot cool things. Most of its just flowers so hang with me while I get the hang of taking pictures of actual moving targets. I will upload a post on the best smoothie you will ever drink for Mother’s Day which is May 12, three days after my birthday (May 9. Happy Birthday to ME!).
Moving on, outside of my house there are flower bushes and they grow some of the most beautiful roses when they’re not burning from the nearly 100 degree weather outside and I am not exagerating. Its gotten as high as 95 degrees here already, and it just turned May. What happened to ‘April showers bring May flowers’? We’ve gotten no showers! Though I’ve heard it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so let’s cross our fingers.
I’m sorry if the pictures are semi-blurry it was incredibly windy when i took these pictures which is why i look to be strangling this poor flower ^^. Anyways, after i took these pictures i went for a walk around the block.
Can you see the bee? I was surprised i was able to take a non-blurry picture of it before it either stung me or took off.
At first i thought these were desert roses. They’re not. Desert roses are actually pretty. I’m just kidding. These flowers are pretty… just not as pretty as desert roses (which don’t technically look like roses :/) .These are called Orange Desert Globe Mallow, the longest name for such small flowers.
Do you know what this creepy thing is?
neither do i…
Then, after my walk, i saw the cutest birds ever. They sort of reminded me of my little sister. I found them near what used to be a dumping site near my house. They were in a bush and because it was hot or they were in a particularly nice mood, they stayed put while my mom ran to the house and grabbed my camera for me. And also, my mom was incredibly nice to sit there patiently while i played paprazzi with these poor birds. Here’s what happened:
At first they were very shy…
Then one, slightly more adventurous than the other, came out saying, “Look! It’s peoples!”
Then he called the next one out. “Yo, dawg, you’ll never believe what I just saw.”
“What is it?”
“Peoples.” Gasp. “No way.”
“Maybe if we just slowly hop away… they won’t notice us…shh”
“Naw, man, this is the perfect time for a photo op. Just lie low, man, lie low.”
“Fine. But eye’s watchin’ you.”
“Wait! Only ONE photo! I’m serious bird, man. Don’t play around!” “But eye’s so photogenetic…Okay, man, alright. Just one… get out the way! Alright! Mr. DeMille, i’m ready for my close up!”
Mutters, “Got to…find my good side…” Clears throat, “CHEESE!”
Yes. The birds did talk and this is what they said. So, get over it. Now: Nummies and sidewalk chalk. 🙂
It’s a tuna melt on wheat, gluten-free bread (toasted), with sprouts, provolone cheese and a side of grape tomatoes and sliced plums.
I’m not usually much of a drawer(er?) but that day, i was feeling inspired. It’s supposed to be youngest sister.
This girl doesn’t have a name. What do you suggest?
I hope you enjoyed my bird story and photos. I’ll have more in about three days with snack suggestions and my trip to a park outside of town. Then, SMOOTHIES! Nom, nom, nom. — Sage.
