Friday Fruitcakes!

Work was a little heavy and almost stressful so far today!

I need some fruitcake to lighten up my mood!





Furry Friday!

Need some fur in my life, and PETA won't let me have the kind i really want to wrap around myself...

These will have to do for now I guess :)


One of my favorite bloggers :)

Happy Eostre Day


Oestara, or Eostre's Day, heralded the onset of springtime. Ostara, or Esther, the Goddess of Spring, was honored by many tribes-people of Europe. She has been depicted as holding an egg in her hand while watching a rabbit jump playfully around her feet, and from this association we now have the Easter Bunny.
Eggs = New Life, Rabbits = Fecundity, Spring is the time of New Life after Winter.


Naturally enough, this was also the perfect time of year for a resurrection, be it Osiris who was healed and resurrected in the spring by Isis or Tammuz brought back to life after winter by Ishtar or Jesus of Nazareth whose resurrection was "discovered" by Mary of Cleopas, Mary Magdalene and Mary, mother of James (sometimes considered the same woman as the disciple Salome).
 
What I like about the Jesus myth is the women - the goddess in her three forms a young woman, an adult woman and a older mother...a crafty incorporation of the goddess by the early Christian leaders.


Today, for myself, I will be eating eggs and chocolate rabbits in memory of older more mystical times when Spring was a mystery and Life was both sacred and magical in its creation.




Have a great Easter Sunday folks!

And another load...

And still with the  laundry!

I got a little dirty working in the garden today


So I need to work in one more load before the day is done.

 
  This ought to do it for me.

Time for a Load!

Laundry Day!

Time for that weekly chore...

Now where did I put that washboard....



There we go. I should be able to get at least a couple of loads done with those in hand.

Furry Friday!

Fruitcake was nice but now the sun is hiding behind clouds here in Sacramento and a breeze is kicking up. I need me some fur!




Friday Fruitcake!

It is earth day so I tried to find earth day appropriate looks for my Fruitcakes today. It is also good friday but I didn't really care about that so I didn't bother to find men dressed in rags or robes - I can see that at home any day.

As I was searching I remembers an artist whose work I admire - Levi van Veluw - he does some amazing work and some of my favorites are his textures on busts as you can see below. This certainly isn't representative of his whole portfolio - he isn't a one trick pony - but these images in particular suit Earth Day...

Did I say Bumpday? Do you really need a Humpday?

For those of you who miss the Humps of Humpday, here are some rather nice Humps to tide you over...







Wouldn't you like to give a few of these guys a Charmin test?

Happy Bumpday!

Wednesdays are like speed bumps - undulations - speed tables - they make you slow down for a moment then you accelerate as you get over them because the weekend is halfway here!

Here are some other kinds of Bumps for you to slow down over...






A couple of these guys look happy to see you!

Hidden Treasure

Time for those titillating pix that almost show you the goodies. If only something was moved just a little more this or that way...
