It's a sketchbook! It's a blog!
It's a "sketchblog"!
Saturday, May 16, 2009
The other day a couple guys came by offering " weed control and lawn care" and would I be interested in a free assessment of my lawn. "Go ahead, knock yourselves out", I tell them.
Now, this never happened in my old 'hood, where my lawn was like 90% weeds. The lawn at my new place actually looks quite good and I'm certainly not feeling that it needs a $300 care package.
So, they give me their expert advice, which I'm only partially listening to, as I am trying to keep my eyeballs on my son who thinks he's Evil Knievel these days on his bike. They hand me a sheet of paper and I tell them that I will pass it along to my husband, who's domain is the lawn.
Just then I look across the road to my neighbours, the " diplomats". Their lawn is full of weeds and makes ours look like a golf course.
"Why don't you guys go there?", I suggest. "It looks like their grass can use more help then mine."
"Thanks for the tip", they reply and off they go, to offer their lawncare services.
O.k. I admit, this blog was originally suppose to be all things created on my iPod Touch when I started it, using it as an electronic sketching device (wordy, huh?). It seems that this blog now has become somewhat, er, schizophrenic in nature and it's more about just be posting things that I find interesting in a quirky sort of way.
My current obsessions are the Dr. Who television series, Mail-Art, Steampunk and Cornell Boxes. No kiddding...
