My circadian rhythm is all sorts of messed up. Maybe it was the whole sleeping-in (every day of my month-long vacation) thing, coupled with the inconsistant feeding times, but the result is a really crappy first-day-back-at-work.
I’m also a little bitter that we hadn’t had any winter-like precipitation this whole holiday season! I suppose it’s better that way. If it so much as rains, the motorists around here forget how to drive (they’re not much better when it’s dry, either).
To cheer me up a little (or encourage me to feel a little less bitter), I’m posting some of last year’s frosty pictures.* It’s nothing amazing, I’ll assure you. This is Dallas, after all.
* I said “last year” but since it IS past December 31st, it would qualify as year-before-last. Although that’s not right, either. We had snow last year and haven’t yet edited those photos. These are from 2008?**
** Checked the data. They’re from 3 years ago almost to the date. Metadata says January 5, 2008. Oh well, they were re-mastered today! THEY’RE NEW NOW, BITCHES!
I took this shot (macro) of our peach tree. It frequently oozed a viscous fluid in the springtime. I assume this was due to the physical injuries it indured from the various insects that bore into its branches.
I named this one The Lion and the Crow. Can ya see it!?
Some more forgotten photos from the yard. It consisted of both living and dead things at any given time. Although, I never did get any pictures of the dog poop-eating turtle we found…
Annnnnd the dead things:
Another perk, our side yard:
We had 2 peach trees in our rental house’s back yard. They never bore edible fruit (due to the abundance of parasitic insects), but provided plenty of picture-worthy blooms when springtime rolled around.
These photos are from the jungle we had outside the house we had rented. I’d say with all the problems we had in that house, the jungle was the least of our concerns.
My brain is tired.
I’ll just go ahead and post some of the pictures and take a well-overdue nap. -_-
I finally had time to go through my external drive and copy over photos to re-edit in a higher resolution (i.e. bigger, clearer). That pretty much means going through and finding all the originals, resizing them, touching up (if necessary), and putting borders as close as I could to the edits I had uploaded years ago.
I’ve edited one, so far. Only 1,599 to go!
I cleverly also uploaded a second version (cropped), so instantly I have two photos instead of just one! HOW AWESOME AM I!?
**Answer: Pretty awesome.**
