Ohhh, Sparkly (361/365)

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake...”

Francis Bacon, Sr. (English Lawyer and Philosopher. 1561-1626)

TIME:  3:19 PM
PLACE:  North side of the house
SUBJECT:  Icicle on Rose of Sharon branch

Back to the grind today.  I was sooo tired.  That’s what I get for staying up way too late and playing Peggle on the Xbox.  Stupid, addicting game cutting in on my sleep time – but I managed to muddle through work and made it back home without falling asleep at my desk.  After I ate a late lunch, StellaDella just had to show me the icicles she spied out of the window by my computer desk.  She thought it was so cool how the afternoon light made them sparkle.  They won’t be here much longer, we are expecting temps to hit the mid to upper 50’s along with some rain on Thursday.

I never heard of that game. I'm going to look it up and that's probably a mistake!

very nice shot. LOL at addicting games. I got "club house games' for my DS and have been playing non stop myself. Sadly, I'm on the last game of the last level, and I can't get through it. Sigh....
