Dirt accumulated on a roof, plants grow. The pipes...I have no idea why they were there, really.

...Yup. That's a chunk of stump. And the fence, about five feet off the ground.

It's a freaking faerie.

And Mack, that green thing? It's moss...

This is a photo from a fence I'm going to fix..and that's a buttload of ants.

It's growing, isn't that a good sign?

So, took this while out and about somewhere. Look ma! The garbage truck's on fire! Wonder what happened.

And at Les. No, it's not a food blog...though I do eat, and sometimes I like what I eat enough to take a picture.

As for the 'can't cook" Trust me. I used to be like that. Cooking is easy. Have an oven? Get a quality meat thermometer. Get some good recopies. Go get a crockpot. I recommend this Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker . It's less than $50, and you can cook any number of things in there...If you don't get that model, make sure you get one that's programmable. You do not want something with a dial...A programmable crockpot you set for the time you want, it cooks, and nothing gets burned..and you can be cooking while out of the house all day after ten-twenty minutes of prep. Go get a two-three pound chunk of beef. Cheapest chunk of roast in the store is best for this. Brown it. Chop up some potatoes, toss in a can of cream of mushroom soup. Set for five hours. Congratulations, you're a cook.

Sweet potato pie

I baked a pie. My roommate demonstrates the existence of pie.

A strange day.

I spent about half my day turning a stump into little tiny chunks with an axe...and the other half baking pies.

I should have taken a picture of the stump. curses.

So, I might have missed a few people.

Over the past bit, for various reasons, I haven't been around. So I might have missed a follower or three...if you follow me, and I don't follow you, let me know, and I'll see about it!

The moon went on a bit of a bender

Clearly, the moon was staggering, hung over. Damn thing.

A day late, forever

A few days late, and the freeze killed the vines. Seeds for next year, at best.

Slasher paint job

This is what happens when you try to remove paint the wrong way.

Also, when you're batshit fucking crazy.
