PomPoms

Just meaningless, meandering photographs from around the yard.

First, a dandelion pompom or two, because even weeds can be pretty:

Daisy the Undeterred, going anywhere she wants… even under grass!

The last bougainvillea picture this year, promise.

…and bad picture of a nasty spider. But look at those legs!

Hope everyone (you’re not here, but I wish it for you anyway) has a blessed Easter!

 

Adam and Eve

About a year ago I sent dna into both FTDNA and Ancestry.com. The results were very similar, as they should be, but there is a striking difference a year on: the Ancestry results are changing!

I found the original FTDNA map and it’s the same as today’s:

Of course I couldn’t find the original Ancestry map, but trust me… it’s different.

NOW I have Greek/Italian ancestors, albeit not many. And a smidgen of Jewish!  I figure that’s Adam and Eve. Yes, Ancestry is just that good; they’ve traced my origins to the beginning of time.

Give them another year and I’ll be Pocahontas’ freaking cousin.  How does that work?  I know they figure in people’s ancestors who are related to me via DNA, but are they taking for granted ALL their predecessors are mine?

Owl Creek*

Badger hates having her picture taken. She thinks it steals her soul or something, so if she knows the camera is pointed at her it’s a full snark situation.

Here she almost can’t believe the thing is after her again.

I think you can judge this expression for yourself:

And she’s such a sweet, happy girl otherwise.  Oh, well.

Daisy, on the other hand, could care less. Or she doesn’t have the brain power to realize what is transpiring.

I Don’t Have a Playlist for Thursdays

I do for Tuesdays.

The man is working on something. A cooler; I don’t know. He’s doing something with fiberglass.

I love his hands. That is all.

Daisy on the sofa. Just because she’s so damn cute.

And I threw a big ‘ol clove of garlic into a pot and it put down roots. We’ll see what happens next.

That’s basically my day. Must return to cleaning now. Ta!
