Close To Home
Here we have
the perfect illustration of how to save a banana for another day. One
simply uses some of the banana peel to cover the exposed part of the
banana. If the seal is good, then it’s just as fresh as if it had its
original skin on the part where it had been sliced.
Now you see the banana is as fresh and tasty as the first half was on Sunday.
by John Harrison’s violin shop earlier today. I saw that he had treated
the wood in preparation for applying the ground to this new Guarneri
violin copy that he’s been working on. I heard him play it the other
day to test the sound before starting the varnish process. The tone is beautiful.
a closer view of that flower that I’ve been following. You can plainly
see how the blossom is forming from the center. The little tubes
release yellow flowers on stems as the tube itself unfolds and
becomes a petal.
I don’t know where the ants fit in the scheme of things, there must be something there that they like to eat.
Here are a few more of the flowers in the garden from this Tuesday.
Today was another warm one, and I spent a lot of it outdoors. I went down to Turtle Bay
to see if I could spot the eagle nests. I also went down to the river
at the kayak launching spot to take more pictures. By the time I got
back to the Treehouse, took a few more shots of flowers, and got back in
my apartment, I was really happy to have air-conditioning.
Tonight I am cleaning out files, (after I back them up), and preparing the MacBook for Mountain Lion. That’s the name of the new operating system from Apple being introduced tomorrow.
looking forward to this update because it will mean that I can mirror
everything that’s happening on this MacBook, and it will play on the TV
without wires. At least I hope that’s what will happen. There is a
possibility that my MacBook is too old to support all 200 of the new
features. I’ll find out tomorrow.
