piranha: red origami crane (Default)

water striders (gerridae) are fascinating.

rain rain rain. nice rain. i stayed inside and listened to the sound on the grape leaves outside the window. and then the network was flakey (not at our end this time) and that's why the picture is late.

the joy of looking at plants at canadian tire is that they're ever so informatively labelled: cactus, succulent, tropical foliage, fern. i'm guessing this is a pachyphytum.

walklog:

8-21 short mailbox walk, 2 km.

lots of errands today: canadian tire for an umbrella dryer, london drugs for a video card for the paramour, wholesale store for some groceries and memory foam mattress pads (unsuccessful, not in stock in the size we need), food country for the eggs i forgot at the wholesale store, and a couple plants that needed rescue (a gaillardia and an amazingly sunset-coloured echinacea).

when i got back home, the power was out, and stayed out for a while.

and now i have fresh sourdough bread, brie, and cherries. and ebooks to read before i sleep.
