About Jim

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

IMG_0006-XLThe sky is blue, the sun is warm and we have warm breezes today.  Everything is starting to pop open right now.  I’m have tempted to start planting some seeds tomorrow; tempted that is until I looked at the 10 day forecast.  In as much as I’m chomping at the bit to get started, I have to be patient a little while longer.

Maybe I’ll make a garden center run to buy some more herbs for planting.  I can always bring the planter boxes in at night.  I know it may seem odd to some but this is Minnesota after all.  We’re a couple weeks behind in weather to a number of places.

Oh yeh.  I definitely need to buy that macro lens next before I get the next zoom lens.


Friday Morning

IMG_0004-XLI should be working instead of posting this but I said the hell with it and am posting anywho.  I’m really loving up on this warm weather that we’ve been having lately and everything is starting to green up.  Rain is in the forecast, so I hafta be as busy as a beaver tomorrow morning to get two chores done before the rain starts to fall down out of the sky.  Two last weeks of final prep and I can start planting in my garden beds.

My thoughts from this morning carried over to this evening.

IMG_0002-XLThe prehistoric gigantasaurus that is rising from the earth is downtown Minneapolis must have looked something like this picture that I obtained.  It’s amazing I I have this ancient prehistoric drawing conveniently located in my garage.  It amazes me that the ancient humans used to hunt dinosaurs and then lived to tell the tale by using a sharpie.  Luck me, huh?

Random Thoughts for Thursday Morning

We had a nice little rain for the morning commute.  I like them.  Everything smells so fresh after they’re done.  They will be better if I ever get some lilac blooms.  I’ve always loved how lilacs smell after a Spring rain.

Someone asked what your best view count was in a day.  That was 116 for me.  I think I’m up to 2 views so far today.  I’m on a roll.  hehehehehehe.

I have two terracotta pots spray painted for my grands.  One painted in pink and the other one painted in purple.  It’s time to make a run to one of the garden centers and pick up a flower for each of them.  They love watering them and caring for them.

I can be back in my garden beds come this weekend.  I can get my strawberries transplanted come Saturday.  I’m a tad bit nervous with transplanting them given it’s the wrong time of year.  I think we’ll cast our fortune to the winds and keep our fingers crossed.

I can see the new Viking stadium out my office window and I’ve watched it rise from the beginning.  It’s pretty much a concrete and steel skeleton right now but it reminds me of a large dinosaur rising from the earth.
