Let's see ... what happened this week? Well, it rained quite a bit. They claim that we're still in danger of a drought, though. For some reason, we've been having early morning thunderstorms this past week. Lucky me, I got drenched Friday morning going into work. I had my umbrella, but I should have worn a rubber suit!
Last night was the "super moon." It's a full moon and closest it gets to us in orbit. It sounds like a perfect photo op, but the clouds were obscuring it when I looked. And, once I had my pj's on, that was it. I wasn't going to go out again.
On both the work and home fronts, not much to share. I worked a lot, didn't sleep enough yet ate quite well. I have no drama to report. Nor did I mysteriously or miraculously receive a million dollars. I was hoping for the latter, but it never seems to happen.
Onto the photos. Since they're on Photobucket, clicking on an image will open a new page, clicking again will open a larger view, then closing that page will land you back here.
Handicapped bird roost?
This one-legged sparrow seems to be fending for himself just fine in Bridgewater, NJ.
|Purplish and poufy|
Someone told me what these flowers were once, but I've forgotten. In the words of Dan Quayle, "A mind is a terrible thing to lose." Berckman Street, Plainfield.
|An explosion of spring!|
Here's "purplish and poufy" in their native habitat with pink azaleas.

|A sea of white azaleas|
|Rainy day azaleas|
|Starting to pass|
The azalea photos were taken in both Plainfield and Bridgewater. Some of the bushes are starting to deflower and pass while others are just coming to life. I always find the metallic-looking ends of the anthers (if memory serves, that's what they are) really fascinating.
On my day off, I made a humongous fruit salad with honeydew melon, cantaloupe and strawberries. I've decided I like Target strawberries more than the Peapod (grocery delivery) strawberries. No more Peapod strawberries for me!
|I see dead people (one)|
Raritan Valley Line of the NJ Transit. Hey, if you sleep on the train, you're fair game for a photo!
|I see dead people (two)|
Same seat, different day. Maybe it's the seat. Or maybe it's a hex for being a single person taking up a four-seater. Their are only four four-seaters on each level of each car of the train.
I always find them stunning. East Front Street, Plainfield.
|Beetle on a leaf|
I'm sure he's destructive. But he was kind enough to pose for me in Bridgewater.
When I first noticed this, I thought it was an ant with markings running along a twig. After I shot it, this is what I got. Huh? Is he carrying another ant? I don't know. He scurried away before I could get a second shot. Bridgewater.
While waiting for the train in Bridgewater, this inch worm kept me amused. He was quite the contortionist!
|Streetlamp on drugs|
Yes, I had fun with editing this one.
|Vincent resting on his chair|
Vincent loves his own chair. I had to cover it with an old bedspread to minimize the cat fur left behind. It's easier to get the fur off the rather slick-surfaced cheap bedspread than the fabric on the chair. I remember the day I went to New York City Animal Care and Control. I had no plan to adopt a white cat. Most of my life is dark! But he's like a ray of sunshine ... shedding sunshine, but sunshine nonethelss.
How was your week?
