It’s an Orange Day 

You know how sometimes everything just lines up, but it’s not really coincidence?

Well, today is one of those days.  Appropriate too, I suppose, since we’re in the middle of summer now, and it’s nice, glorious sunshine outside !

What’s orange today?

I saw an orange flower …

I was wearing orange today …

A colleague is also wearing orange …

My wall calendar, composed of photos I took, shows a flaming orange sunflower …

I helped catch an orange Pokemon for hubby … a Magmar, and it’s orange …

And I’m adding the red-orange skies too, just because🙂

And how is your day?

 

It’s All About the Weather …

I thought that summer was finally on its way … and then spring weather blew in overnight.  A light jacket came out of the closet again, after I thought I had put it away for a few months …

Not that I’m complaining about warm winter, but the weather this past year really has been an actual topic, not just a casual weather report.

And I’m back to waiting for hot sun …

Jumble of Flowers

I needed a distraction to settle my mind, so what better way than to just doodle aimlessly, right?

Since my latest Congo inspiration was flowers,  I thought to continue drawing plants and nature and to think outside of the boxes and lines.

This started out as a flower – see that in the middle?  A seven-petaled flower that I didn’t like, so I just continued to draw petals.  It started to look like a bushel of bananas, specially after I added shades here and there.  Oh well …  I continued on.

With the television on as background noise, I just wandered over the page, drawing flowers.  I see now that I drew anywhere from five to 10 petal flowers.   Interesting …

It was looking rather busy  … So I thought that maybe I should add some colour to it …

It’s still looking busy … maybe worse now.  Will have to think of something else to do with it … or leave it as it is …

What do you think?

 

 

 

 

Morningside Park

After eating, we went back to Morningside Park, where the Harlem EatUp was held.  We decided to walk around a bit before heading on home.  It turned out that we just climbed and walked across the park (two blocks) to the street where we could get to where the car was parked.  Oh well … That was the exercise for the day🙂

A lake in the park …

Up the stairs …

To the street behind St. John the Divine’s Cathedral, and a peacock on the cathedral grounds …

We’ll explore the other parts of the park some other time.
