Time for a Mardi Gras HNT!!!

Don't think I need to explain my inspiration today. If you haven't heard of Mardi Gras you should be shot. Hope everyone has a wonderful Mardi Gras and a Happy HNT!


Mardi Gras Fever

I've actually never been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Seems crazy since I live so close. It will happen some day. Not this year though - too many other things going on. This year I'm getting geared up for the local festivities. Gotta find my hot pink floor length beads. WOO HOO! Gnat got some pretty cool throws this year. Too bad I'm going to have to duck and run if he starts to throw any my way. Last year he tried to throw some beads that he had been saving all night for me. He wanted to make sure that I caught them and no one else had a chance of snagging them. I'm not sure if it was all the booze or all the excitement but he must have had a flashback to his baseball years. I watched him wind his arm and throw the beads straight at me. I honestly had no time to think or duck before they hit me square in the eye. Yup, that one stung. The beads were mighty nice though.


Such a Slacker

I admit I've been a total slacker today. My internet connection was down most of the day so I decided to hang outside seeing as it was absolutely gorgeous weather. I did take my laptop and got a little work done but mostly napped in the hammock - as you can see from my photo this week.

It's not my best photo ever but it's late in the day and I figured I needed to post something. Here's to hoping tomorrow is just as nice!


Hmmm, HNT Already?!

I guess it is already Thursday (1:20 am my time) so technically I could post an HNT photo, however I don't have one yet. I need to wait for the sunshine and inspiration to come in the morning. Been out way to late with friends... Good times though, totally worth it. I had a great time tonight. I laughed more tonight than I have in a while... I hung out with gnat and two lovely ladies that totally inspire me. Each in their own way. Every time I see them I learn something new and they both fascinate me.

Anyhow, no HNT yet... stay tuned. I will post something sometime in the morning. Off to bed, hopefully for some good zzzzs.


What is she looking at?! - Happy HNT!

Today is a 2-fer. I couldn't resist posting this photo. My inspiration today came from none other than my crazy Ms Kitty. For some reason she was mesmerized by the shadows on the curtians. Occasionally the curtians would sway and she would try to attack a shadow as it seemed to move. Shortly after I took this photo she jumped to attack a shadow and fell off the side of the couch... crazy kitty. Maybe I should rename her Grace.


Cold, Cold, go away!

No, I'm not talking about the weather. Although it did dip into the 30's last night and the high for today is only 57 :( I guess I can't complain seeing as it is February. Anyhow, I'm talking about this stupid coughing (more like hacking) flu/cold shit that's going around. The cold itself is not so bad. Stuffy nose, itchy throat, head and chest congestion. The horrible part about it is that it's lasted for almost 2 weeks now!! One of my friends is rolling up on 3 weeks of nastiness. Ugh. Go away already!!! Not to mention that my hands look like someone took a cheese grater to them. They are very sensitive and this hot/cold weather yo-yo shit has sent them into dire straits. No matter how much lotion I put on them the tops of my hands actually burn and itch. Uck. Ok, enough bitching for today.

On another note, everything in my yard seems to be blooming. Here are some photo's I took this morning. The one on the left is the Japanese Magnolia tree. It's blooming like crazy right now but unfortunately has no leaves. Poor thing has been through hell with all the hurricanes. I'm not sure if it knows who it is right now.

Now the flowers below are a mystery to me. I had no idea this plant would bloom. It's more of a succulent than anything. Gnat, I bet you can't guess which plant this is from. I'm astonished by it.


February HNT!

A little late but here's my photo for HNT today.

I'm not sure what inspired this. I was completely uninspired earlier this morning, probably because it was dark and gloomy outside and I think I'm coming down with a cold. Anyhow, I saw my guitar sitting in the corner and thought since I don't play it at least I could take a few pics of it. Guitars need love too.

Hope you enjoy.


Handblown Goblets

I love goblets. I don't know exactly what it is about them that I like so much. And no it's not the wine that goes in them... ok fine, maybe that's part of it. Anyhow, I've just recently discovered my fascination with them but I'm hooked. It doesn't hurt that I can have my own "one of a kind" goblets made by none other that gnat.

This is a photo of my favorite two. The picture doesn't do them justice, they're beautiful. I use the red one regularly (it holds more wine) ;) Not to mention that these two are probably only the 5th or 6th ones he's ever made! Pretty impressive gnat! I can't wait to see more as your goblet skills progress.
