When I checked my email this morning there were several comments about my beautiful lush lawn. What? I had to go back and look at the picture I posted, because let me tell you, my lawn is neither lush nor beautiful. In fact we have been pulling our hair out, well maybe thats a bit strong, we have not been happy with the state of our lawn the past couple of years. I can only attribute the deceptively lush looking lawn to the camera angle and lighting. We are bombarded every day by deception. Glossy magazine covers of airbrushed to perfection models or perfectly styled but never lived in rooms. I couldn't be a part of that. Here's the ugly truth.
*By the way this picture was taken yesterday just a few minutes before the "lush" picture. Goes to show you can't always believe even what you see. I in no way touched up the other picture. I was just sitting on the grass looking back toward the house as opposed to looking down at the lawn. What is really sad about this is at one time we did have a lush lawn and we have no idea why there are huge dead patches everywhere. Where the grass dies weeds quickly take its place making for one ugly lawn.
Now for the tv talk. Yay for the American Idol winner! If you haven't watched it yet don't read this. I really wanted Elliot or Chris to win but between the two finalist I am glad Taylor won.
Any Lost watchers reading? What did you think about last nights episode? I am not sure. I think I am going to have to watch it again. It seemed all over the place to me. I thought I heard a commercial for this episode that claimed it would answer many of our questions. Did it? So the plane really did crash and it was because of some electromagnetic something. What do you think the deal is with that last scene? I don't think that episode answered as many questions as it raised.
Maybe if I proclaim it here in writing it will happen. It is certainly worth a try. Here goes... I am going to get something accomplished today! Something I can post that is actually craft related. Now to get off my behind and away from the computer. Have a great day. I hope to see you later with some show and tell.
