gentleman gardener

this & that

Not a lot of excitement going on in my life. The trip East a couple of weeks ago was the last adventure. Still get to ride the bike in this enjoyable weather. The trees should be changing into their Fall grandeur pretty soon. A few anxious leaves have jumped the gun and are showing a bit of color now but it'll be another week or three before the best display. The garden has pretty much died down but there are still a few tomatoes and peppers hanging in there. Marigolds are starting to go to seed so I should be out collecting the various colors for next year's planting.

We're heading for an artsy, craftsy, foodsy kind of thing in a neighboring town this afternoon. That should be fun. Seeing other people's work is always stimulating. And then there's the food. :-) Speaking of work, I've started to build a frame to enclose the Tree-triptych I painted a few months ago. Somehow, hanging on the wall, they seem to cry out for a boundary. We'll see...

The project to subdivide the basement into various areas for work and relaxing and doing the laundry, etc proceeds at a very snail like pace. Guess it's just not that exciting and I'm always able to find something else to do first. :-) Progress is being made but slowly, verrrry slowly.

Remember that piece of water color paper I taped down a few weeks ago? I think I mentioned it... anyway... it's still sitting, waiting patiently, for me to become inspired. Inspiration can't be rushed, though I have found in the past that just jumping into something without a clear cut plan in mind sometimes produces creative results. Perhaps today's trip to the festival will get the juices flowing. I'll let you know.

Motorbike or a cycle type bike. I'm an avid cycler. I'm thinking of buying a 3rd bike. I need someone to say "Angela, don't do it!"

Motorcycle -- I have a pedal bicycle as well but haven't ridden it in quite a while. Here's a pic of part of the Harley:


Before this I had an Electra Glide but don't go on long road trips anymore so I down sized to this Sportster 1200 Lowride a couple of years ago.

I'm at the point that if I want something or to do something and have the money for it (no paying on time!) I go ahead. I advise you to do the same; if you want a 3rd bike... why not? Angela, DO IT! ;-) This is not to say that I throw money away on junk but I make reasoned ( :-) ) decisions about what's important to me. as an aside, there is a GF who I consider in these "wild" decisions, but we seem to be able to work things out LOL

I love fall colors! Here where I live, we don't see a whole lot of that, although much more if one wants to take a drive up north for the day. Then there are plenty of colors, and even some beautiful spruce trees that are always pretty yellow. Fall and winter are my favorite seasons!
