Random Gulchy Moments…

My favorite cacti are blooming!

I love the shade of these flowers but the plants are pure evil. The spikes are not only very sharp, they’re hooked as if they don’t want to stop causing you pain when you get too close.

Also they’re really well camouflaged when not in bloom. These two are close together and I marked them with white rocks several years ago so I could find them when I wanted to.

Speaking of evil: The temperature of the beast!

In Spring I monitor the temperature in Ian’s bathroom, because its shower is so precious to me but I hate the cold. This morning it kind of warned me off.

And finally…

After decades of eating out of cans and bulk buckets, I’ve lately caught myself preparing dishes like a normal person. Roast chicken and fancy rice with greens, yet. And chili sauce. Not sure how much of this I’m allowed to do and still call myself a cedar rat.

    Lovely photos Joel. I hope that Tobie hasn’t had any serious encounters with the cacti.

    Eating out of cans and bulk buckets versus preparing tasty meals is the difference between simply living and living well. 🙂

    Eat as much fresh as possible, turns out (I read this somewhere, so it MUST be true) fresh is more useful to you system! AND healthful. AND tasty. HOW many times do I have to tell you?! Six. I’ll probably have to tell you SIX times. One…..

  4. Why does that cactus remind me of most women I’ve been involved with?

To the stake with the heretic!
