Experimenting 2 (1st Thursday of June 2013)

Self has been repeat-watching Game of Thrones Season 3 —  that is, she’s starting from the very beginning. Fun, fun, fun.

No, in fact, self has begun watching from the last few episodes of Season 2.  She fell asleep during Season 2 Episode 9.  That was the battle of Blackwater Bay.  So many things now strike her as poignant:  for instance, the first meeting of Robb Stark and Talisa.  And the start of the Brienne/Jaime Lannister journey.

Anyhoo, it is a gorgeous day.  The neighbors all around are out in their yards, including the neighbor to her left who plays old rock —  and self means REALLY REALLY old, pre-Led Zeppelin old — at full volume.  He doesn’t have children, he began showing up over a decade ago, his father (previous occupant of the house) died, and then the man was there all the time, occasionally rousing himself to garden, whenever it suits him, even if that means gardening under the broiling noonday sun.

Today is Thursday, which means it’s the day for the San Carlos Farmers Market.  The Man has expressed a desire to check it out.

In the meantime, self is enjoying the student pieces from her on-line creative writing (nonfiction) class.  Occasionally, when she feels in need of physical activity, she takes her camera outside and tries different kinds of shots:

This is what happens when the wind stirs a plant just before self presses the shutter release.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
