Tuesdays of Texture | Week 31 of 2015

Every Tuesday I post an image of a texture or the use of a texture and invite you to join in the fun of sharing a detail of your part of the world by linking your own post to this one.  (If your blog is hosted on WordPress and you link to this post your links will automatically appear as a pingback.)

You can also @ naramilee in twitter or instagram if you want to share an image from either platform. 

You don’t have to make an exclusive Tuesdays of Texture post, you can find an image during the week and join any day you want and this event is ‘theme free’.   

I share contributions on twitter and mention each one the next week.   Hope to see your part of the world! 

I used to have reinitas nests inside our marquee and I loved to see the chicks growing and getting fed (that link goes to a video of the reinitas getting fed).

I don’t have that anymore, but some days ago I discovered this:

Nest texture

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.
Josiah Gilbert Holland

That’s one bold reinita because that bush is right in front of the place where I park my car and is also very close to the balcony.  Whenever she fed the chicks we could hear them all the way into the house.   Cute.

Please check out last week’s participations;

klara shared a magical garden!  It made me think of The Secret Garden :)

ladyleemanila shared a collection of varied textures, my favorite is the one of the humongous shoe thingy.

land of images shared a flawless macro shot of a purple orchid.

Have a great Tuesday!

Dancing Mondays: You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma. But I’m divorcing you anyway.

So these two are getting a divorce.  The faith in true love weakens by the minute man.

I personally will remember them like this.

You can see the exact moment when they fell in love.  He smirks his cowboy smirk.  Her heart skips a beat and she smiles softly, partially melted.  She even looks away to gain composure.

And in any case, Saturday the 25th (because it’s the fourth Saturday of July) was National Cowboy Day and it fits to listen to some good country music.   Turn it up and sing your hearts out peeps.

Have a wonderful Monday.

Hit ghostwriters, one of my favorite things!  Who wrote that song? I didn’t knew about You Are Not Alone, I thought it was M. Jackson.

One tree that grows forty different fruits.  Totally want one of those in my yard.

Couples describe their partners to police sketch artist and the results almost made them break up with each other.  The one dancing (is that dancing?  Awkward.) beside him and doing the chorus happens to be his girlfriend.  Yeah.

This is Daniel Radcliffe – aka Harry Potter – singing Eminem’s Slim Shady.  He should record that cover.

Have a beautiful Sunday with your family!

For my I Remember series:

I mentioned in this post that a few years back I could have never in my wildest dreams imagine that I would end up with manfriend (my ex-trainer) who had a fiancé when I met him, and having a kid with him. Well, I said it in other words, but that’s the gist of it.

I found this post that I wrote in my singleness (which I lived with gusto too, even though sometimes I had my moments, I enjoyed my freedom VERY MUCH) and reading it now, I find it totally amusing and funnier than I intended when I wrote it.
I didn’t even remember writing this by the way, which is why sometimes I raid old posts for this I Remember series, to -pun very much intended – remember.
Have a great weekend peeps!

I was going to write a post about this, not because I’m dating anyone right now, but because February gave me daily flashbacks of the horrible dates I had last year and it made me think, apart from the fact that I only had the pleasure to date true idiots, why has dating has become something I kinda/sorta/might-sometimes hate so much?

And I realized the first and most important reason was: because these guys I dated didn’t knew me.  And I didn’t knew them.  And all the questions and the talking and the exploring of the other persons brain was SO FAR AWAY from the nice, soft, sweet and easy knowing of what it is exactly that the person in front of you is thinking by mere use of simple prediction.  I missed conversations without words, the kind where you just look at each other and you just know

Inside The Doors

This beautiful door crossed my path some days ago and I had to take a few shots for Norm’s Thursday Doors.

It’s impressive from the outside, but I think the real shot came looking at it from inside the building.

Have fun today!

Hardcore Country Life pets, I show you them

Usually the Hardcore Country Life means going out and seeing things like this or this, or sometimes this.

But every now and then there’s this:

Former bird.

A photo posted by @naramilee on

Manfriend warned me not to step on the bird that “the cat brought”.   I was like “dude, you mean this cat?!”

Inocent cat.

A photo posted by @naramilee on

Because that cat can barely walk, but if it could put up a fight with a bird it wouldn’t anyway.  I had never seen a cat stay completely still while chicks and chickens played around him until I met this one.  Lizards could party on top of his head and he would hand them glow sticks and keep lazily licking his paws.

A few hours later we caught one of the dogs carrying it to another location, presumably to finish a plucking work that had been left unfinished.

Hope you have a day that doesn’t include former anythings.  Be well!

Trunk macro taken on a walk in the park.

I was supposed to be exercising but I was actually out of breath and taking photos along the trail (while everyone passed me running – on an uphill) to avoid collapsing from exertion.

Last week’s cool contributions are here:

In klara’s image someone is avoiding an impending paint job.

Land of Images shared a Thorny Beast of the Dunes, and when they say thorny, they are NOT kidding.

Ladyleemanila shared a varied collection of interesting textures, but my focus was on the boat.

Please check them out and leave some love over there.

Have a fun and textured Tuesday!

Dancing Mondays: Shut Up And Dance Edition

Why not revisit another awesome concert?

Aerosmith came November of 2006 and I was there rocking it all. (Video of concert and photos included.)  I invite you to rock a little bit today by joining me in listening to this classic sang in Woodstock in 1994.  I was fourteen and you can bet I liked Steven Tyler.

Have a rocking Monday!  And dance!

The Week Elsewhere | Week 29, 2015

Mine

Don’t you just hate it when that happens?  And I had shared a fast command method to get them out but I couldn’t find the tweet/post.  Meh.

Yes, it was naughty.  Basically, everything else gets forgotten. Oh yeah baby.

Robots are self-aware.  We are living in the future.  And the future does not have hover boards for everyone.

This video has gone viral so you might have seen it, in which case, see it again because OMG that guy is on my favorite people list.

This video almost made me go exercise.  One day I’m gonna get off my butt and this is what I’m going to watch every night.  The Rock is awesome.

I found this interesting:  What $100 is Worth Across the US.
