Because NaBloPoMo isn’t enough

(175:  Frost and seeds.)

I normally would have posted this over at Bountiful Healing (where I’ve been posting some more abstract and/or different stuff lately) but I haven’t the time to deal with two blogs right now.  I took this photo prior to the mowing of the wildflower meadow, and then played around with it on Photoshop.

Because keeping up with NaBloPoMo and two blogs wasn’t enough, I finally went over to the dark side.  Yes, it’s true.  I signed up for Facebook.  It was the last invite that did it.  I’ve managed to resist all the invites in the past.  When my sister sent me one the other day I finally decided that resistance was futile.  Besides, it’s a good way to keep up with family.  I suppose I ought to make a badge and post it here at the blog.  I’ll get around to it eventually.  In the meantime, if you’re at Facebook and want to connect, leave a comment or email me or something.  I’m still figuring it all out.

M and I went to the Kent State University Folk Alley ‘Round Town last night.  It’s part of the KSU Folk Festival (which is celebrating its 43rd year this year).  M jokingly remarked that it’s similar to JazzFest in New Orleans, where people go year after year and have the t-shirt to prove it.  I suppose you had to be there to appreciate the joke (or at least know a little about JazzFest and some of the JazzFest fanantics).  The Folk Alley ‘Round Town is a free event with live music at over 35 venues (bars, local businesses, on the streets, and in the alleys).  I owe the town of Kent an apology.  A few weeks (months?) ago I commented on how Kent was pretty lame for a college town.  It seems they have been making improvements since my last visit.  Kent is not that far from us but we rarely find a reason to go there (due to the lack of businesses and things to do).  It appears that has changed.  They have cleaned things up, opened new businesses, and there are now things to do in Kent.  M and I are going to go back soon to do a little exploring and, maybe, some holiday shopping.

The garden awaits and I should get out there.  The weather here continues to be fantastic (sunny, clear, and warm).  I don’t know where the snow is hiding out this year, but I’m glad it isn’t here right now.
