Late August Night

It has been a full moon week, and everything is as, well, loonie, as it can be. I saw a baby mantis this week, outside a Japanese buffet. A sushi fan like me? Have they become my totem? My friend asked if she had eaten her boyfriend, yet. She looked like she was still on mantis Gerber foods to me.

Living Lands and Waters held their annual barge party, with a display of what comes out of the river, followed by a massive clean up. I don't get the full grown trees and bushes pulled out, let alone the appliances; wouldn't it be a chore to haul them out there and sink them, all evironmental issues notwithstanding? My friend Luci the cat is lying on my books next to me, all fluffy, black,and Maine coon cat of her, and my friend Nellie the white lab is cruising the floor; we are at their mom's house, working away.

We have cool nights and low humidity, and Halloween candy, and the pricier Halloween decorations are beginning to appear. Here and there, I smell woodsmoke, and I think Autumn is coming again. We've been doing this blog more than a year.

We still have flowers, and my pumpking plants are coming up, along with a glorious red begonia that is thriving. It reminds me of one my mother had for years and years, so long, that I thought she was my sibling.

School is in session, and here and there, I see a Christmas ornament popping up.How I hate to see the summer end, how I worry about the little birds. I have a friend who wants to get rid of all sparrows because they are not indigenous to this area, but I love them. I remember feeding fries to one in Disneyland, "here, Boy," we called, and he too, one out of my hand.

More newsletters, tips, green ideas to come. I'm glad to see local coffee places engaging in fair trade for their coffees, and installing recycling cxontainers with posters explaining how to use them. I continue to recycle at work, and have to note again, that yard salers and junkers, even dumpster divers, are the ultimate reusers and recyclers. More later, and live green!
