DS106 – Thus begins the fall of Headlessness

Hmm…what to post.  My first real foray into DS106, and I’m at a loss for words.

I have a blog, and I will be using my blog to actually blog for a change, and only DS106 work for awhile.  Maybe THIS is the way to get me to blog regularly!

I have twitter and flickr accounts already.  And a Gravatar – a new one to me!

I guess my next task, assuming this all works, will be to get started on the Daily Creates!  Let’s see how it goes!

My next random post

So, my random post today involves this:

July292013

So, what’s up with this?  I even spent a bit of time today googling Zombie Response Unit, but didn’t come up with anything that would explain this…unless…it really IS the end of days!  The Republicans are right!

Of course, the most disappointing thing was that there weren’t any actual zombies on the bus.  And, while the path that I was running along was teeming with people and dogs, I didn’t see anyone that looked suspiciously like they wanted ton eat my brains.  So, all in all, a bit disappointing given the awesome buildup!

If I ever find out more, I’ll be sure to let you know!

My first random post

Well, I’m back.  Just thought I should get off my butt and post something…So I thought I would start with my first random topic, as we slowly (well, actually pretty quickly) approach the first anniversary of living in our new (old) house.

I was working outside today, thinking about trying to improve curb appeal some more, since it’s pretty much a wreck out there, and we are still going to work on carpentry this year, and paint next year, so we don’t want to do too much “permanent” gardening this year.  So I thought, maybe I’d post some “before” and “after” pics of the front of the house.  Let’s see what I can find…

Our house

The house as it looked right after we took possession

So, this is the front of the house right after we took possession, but before we started working on the perimeter drains.  Note the cedar on the right side of the steps.  It’s had to see here, but the front yard was a wreck.  It had only been mowed for the purpose of selling it, and now, after the drain work, it’s still kind of a weedy mess.

And now, curb appeal.  Took out the “lawn” on the left side and planted flowers in pots.  Also put a strip on the left – it’s a bit wider now, and I just planted lavender this afternoon, so I’ll have to take a picture of that tomorrow and add it here.  And maybe I can find a few more pictures of the front to show better what the comparison is…

Since the front is in pretty good shape for the time being, I’m going to turn my attention to the back.  I’ll post some pictures of that for my “random” post tomorrow – hey, not so random any more.  How’s that – I’m planning ahead!

Bruce

Why Bruce?  Think of it as my homage to Monty Python.  If you’ve not seen it, here it is:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_f_p0CgPeyA – I wish I worked at the Australian University of Woolloomooloo.  It’s also because I have no good title for this blog.  Partly because I have no idea what this blog is going to be about.  You see, I’ve always wanted to blog, journal, write, but never knew how to begin.  But now I’m taking my own advice and just starting.  Of course, I will have to eventually have a plan, but I think that plan will come with time.

So, what will this blog be about?  Whatever interests me, I think.  I have started a more “professional” blog at work, so I think this one will cover what strikes my personal fancy.  Cats, running, yoga, meditation, refurbishing an old house (0r, perhaps better, trying to keep motivated to refurbish the old house!), gardening (when I don’t have a lot of gardening room right now), cooking, taking random pictures and trying to stick to a real “picture a day”…I don’t know – there are so many topics, and so much blogging to do.  Eventually I’ll find more of a focus, maybe, we’ll see!

In reality, this blog will probably turn out to be a place I can post a lot of pictures, links to websites I like, and random ramblings – thoughts…so, let’s see where it leads!
