And I Dance Around in Circles

Ah, hello and happy Friday. I hope the week has been kind to you! I really need to make a point of getting out some soon, before the whole of California becomes draped and smoke once again. Summer? What’s that? We only have fire season here on the west coast.

*sips tea*

Ah, life!

So this week, I’ve got some flower photos- I know, surprise, surprise. But I’m really happy with how the first one came out in particular, so I hope you enjoy them too!

The Best Moment is Yet to Come…

Hello everybody, how are we all doing out there today? This week I’ve got some lovely shots from The Mendocino Botanical Gardens to share with you all. It really is one of my favorite places to visit, my husband and I have been there countless times over the year and it never ceases to surprise and enchant us, no matter what time of the year we are visiting. If you’re curious to learn more about it, feel free to check out their website here.

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever…

Wow, wowowowow- going to the coast was so nice, except for the parts that weren’t, but 90% of the time? Excellent, no notes, fantastic. Cold, windy, bright, beautiful, we love to see it. This week I’m showing off the first round of images that I took from that trip, featuring the northern coast’s bluffs and the wide variety of grasses that grow there. The fourth shot features one of my all time favorite grasses (yes, I’m a plant nerd and I have those), it’s common name is Rattlesnake Grass, it’s sadly an invasive species that has spread rapidly over the open fields on the coast, but it’s charming and lovely and when it’s dry it rattles (do not be deceived by the name though, it doesn’t sound like a snake).

Anyway, that’s enough of me rambling about plants, on to the pictures!

Running Out of Things to Say…

Have you ever been in the middle of working on three projects at once because that’s how your brain do and then you see a picture of Jung Hoseok and suddenly you are a shattered, broken mess of a person unable to form proper thoughts let alone convey them to the world? Because that’s where I’m at right now, thanks, J-Hope, I hope you’re happy.

Not but seriously, I really do hope you’re happy, you deserve it.

Anyway! I got back from the coast a couple of days ago and it was pretty great until the last day where we had a lot of bad luck that included stinging nettles, overgrown trails, my husband falling into the ocean (with his cell phone in his pocket), me hitting my head more times then I can count, and hives. Wow, what a day- the other days were good though, and there’s a really funny story involving my grandma’s ashes that I won’t share here because maybe that’s a bit morbid, but she would have laughed hysterically so I don’t think it’s bad.

Warmer Days and Cold Nights

Wow, hello! Is it Friday yet again? I’ve been keeping myself super busy this passed month, with the added pressure of a few projects for work, and time is just flying by. I did manage to sneak away to the coast for four nights, and it was a much needed reprieve (though I found myself missing some of my usual routine, I’m a creature of habit, and if I’m not working, I often feel like I’m wasting time). Mendocino County treated us well, like it always does, so look forward to a fresh batch of ocean and redwood images to be coming your way soon!

Early Arrivals

Ah, Friday, we meet again…

*sidles up to the weekend and gives it a wink*

Man, I am TIRED guys. I think it’s allergies, or maybe it’s the physical and mental drain of being alive in a time of constant strife? But it’s probably the allergies. How are you? I hope you’re doing well on this fine Friday, as I write this there is a moth that keeps hitting the window of my office, that’s absolutely a dark omen, isn’t it? It’s a black moth, and I mean, nothing good can come from that.

The Struggle of Spring

It’s been a cold few days here, we went from temps in the mid 80’s (around 26 degrees Celsius) to the low forties in the span of a day, with snow, hail, sleet, rain, and high winds, so needless to say that plants are a mess right now. I planted my morning glories and I guess this is punishment for that, because the day after I did it was when the temperature yeeted itself into cold again. We froze overnight, but by Saturday we’re expected to be back into the low 80’s, ah- Spring!

Wondering if…

Hello lovelies! I hope the week’s been treating you well and you’ve got a nice weekend to look forward to! I had another productive few days, and I’m pleased to report that I’m still feeling pretty good about the routine I’ve set for myself. It’s funny, because there’s people in my life who are always bugging me about how much work I do, but if work makes you happy, it doesn’t feel like “work” per se. I like writing, I like photo editing, and I like posting here, but I’m not really into the things most people do in their free time. I can’t remember the last time I sat down and watched anything other then YouTube content, and that horrifies people?

I don’t know man, to quote the great Mike Shinoda- I like what I do, I do what I like.

We Hurt and Heal the Same

Oh my gosh hello, everyone! Happy Friday to all of you that have a normal work week, and my apologies to those that don’t. I hope this post is finding you all well- I’m bursting at the seems because it’s only like, five weeks away till BTS has their comeback, and while I’m sure most of you have zero interest in that, I am a living, breathing hype-machine, so here we are.

This week we continue with our happy celebration of Spring, it’s all flowers, all the time, or at least until I can get away to the coast for a few days at the end of the month. I’m super excited for my upcoming vacation, it will be the longest trip we’ve taken since 2019, and I. Am. Ready.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the pics, and I’ll see you in the next post!

Little Things That Matter

Happy Friday, lovelies! I hope you’re doing well! I’ve had a pretty good month, with plenty of good news and things to look forward to in the future. Jimin’s duet for Our Blues is dropping in Monday. BTS announced their first album in three years. Florence and the Machine are making new music. Hozier is in the recording studio. And last but not least, I’m going to see Stray Kids with one of my best friends. I realize that’s all music-related news, but music is a huge part of my day to day life, so I shouldn’t be surprised.

This week we’ve got more celebrations of spring. This really is my favorite time of year, there’s so much in bloom right now, and I’m happy to say we’ve been getting a lot more rain this month, so hopefully the flowers will continue blooming well into June. I hope you enjoy this weeks selection!
