Before the storm

WordPress is telling me the editor is new on my phone, but I’m not at all sure that I can tell. In the meantime, enjoy this photo of clouds before the thunderstorm.

Walking down the sidewalk in wilting heat this afternoon (why, oh why did I agree to that?) I spotted a shell in the sidewalk. I believe this is not an unusual thing, depending on what kind of cement is used, or where it’s made. It was lovely. Enjoy a bit of a Where’s Waldo moment trying to find it, if you like.

Ditch Weeds

I don’t notice these weeds in any other place than Iowa. I remember them and clover everywhere growing up, so of course I grabbed a photo.

I don’t have candles in my home often because cats, though I do enjoy watching them burn. My kids are of an age where candles are an option again, but not the cats. The cats would explore and crash into and otherwise damage themselves and their environment with the introduction of such delights. So. No candles for me.

A gorgeous, temperate day today. I didn’t realize so much of the building made it into the shot, though. Anyway, the temps are cool and there’s a nice breeze.

Just because

I’m trying to get more comfortable with posting from my phone. The things I do easily from the desktop are a little more confusing here. I think I managed this okay, and hopefully it will allow easier (and earlier, and more spontaneous) 365 challenge posts. The thing it doesn’t do is give me my word count. Hmph.
