#000000;">i have been searching my mind high and low, inside and out for some good blog fodder… something funny and pointless to tell you all about…. but it’s just not coming to me…. must be the heat…
#000000;">because i’m a clumsy ass i know there has to be something to tell you that has happened… but it’s just not coming to me…. i could sit her and whine and moan and complain about all the shitty things my body is doing right now… but most of you are going through the same garbage and know the drill….
#000000;">for those of you who don’t know the drill…. just believe us when we tell you that the beast does not like the heat….not. at. all.
#000000;">ok… so let’s see… where will my rambling fingers take me now….
#000000;">(pausing for a brief intermission here… aka a pee break… go read another blog, listen to a song, twiddle your fingers, scratch yourself… i’ll be right back)
#000000;">ok, i’m back… did you enjoy yourself… did you entertain while i was away? thought so….
#000000;">i have a birdfeeder… it sits on the ground on it’s side… i had it hanging once from a limb on a tree… but the dang squirrels knocked it down and the string thingy broke… so it remains on it’s side on the ground….and i scatter birdseed all over the ground….
#000000;">i don’t think the birds mind so much… they spend a great deal of time pecking around in my yard o weeds even before i was scattering the seed about….
#000000;">this IS leading up to something, i promise….
#000000;">so my yard o weeds… no grass to speak of…but i have the thickest, prettiest, greenest clover you ever laid your eyes on… i water it daily… it’s the one task that i can do… i sit on the porch at 5:30 in the morning when the temp is sitting at a nice cool 92 degrees and water the weeds….
#000000;">and i’ve noticed in the past few weeks that there are some new types of things growing in the yard o weeds… wild grass… and SUNFLOWERS… okay, one sunflower plant…. i have to assume the birds are full from my abundant scattering of seed and are leaving their left overs on the ground… then i come along and water it all profusely, and Ta-Da! things sprout…
#000000;">the sunflower i assume is the result of a sunflower seed in the bird food… and it was so beautiful! i was so enjoying watching it sprout and grown… it got to be about 2 1/2 feet high and then it blossomed! the brightest yellow sunflowers… made me smile every time i looked at it…. and then… a second bud… and a third!
#000000;">i looked forward to going outside and looking at my sunflowers all the time.. they are my favorite flower… and this is the first time i’ve had one growing that was all mine…
#000000;">just after the second bud opened up….
#000000;">some asshat came and cut it!!!!!!! right in the middle of the stalk… all three flowers gone…..
