Really Random Thursday, 1st Edition

My friend Cindy does a post every Thursday where she shares random things from her week. She is starting a linky party. I’m going to join the party but this will be hard for me. I’m not good with random posts. I usually need a theme to focus on.

Live A Colorful Life

We haven’t had any measurable rain in about two months, and it’s been scorching hot around here lately, so our grass is quite brown. It will turn green as soon as we get some rain, but for now, things are very dry. We are now watering our trees at night, in addition to our other plants, because they are starting to drop leaves.

In spite of the dryness and heat, our lilies are still blooming.

My husband brought home S’mores ice cream for me, which I eat by the spoonful right out of the pint container. It requires a lot of discipline to not eat the entire pint in one sitting.

We watched the movie Haywire earlier this week. It reminded me of a Jason Bourne-type of movie, but instead of Jason Bourne as the main character, it was a female black ops agent played by Gina Carano. I learned that she is a kickboxing (MMA) champion, thus super tough.

A heavy metal band I like called In This Moment came out with a new song called “Blood.” I love their new video. Warning: not for the faint at heart.

I watched the Edge of the Earth documentary this week about a music video that was shot north of the Arctic Circle. It was really interesting to learn more about the ice melt in that part of the world, and to see the beautiful scenery.

I love taking pictures of cool storm clouds. Too bad these clouds just had thunder in them.

Hope you’re having a good week. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Lilies are so fabulous in the heat let me tell you. They are so hardy down here as well! The Haywire movie looks really interesting. Would love to do kickboxing sometime:)

    Sorry about your grass. My dad was telling me ya’ll had brown grass everywhere,but man that is terribly bad. Hope rain comes your way really soon Terri:)

  • Yes, you will have to walk me through the Mr. Linky! So bummed I wasn’t ready to go but YOU were! Cool post. The cloud picture is phenomenal. Really random will get easier and easier. Pretty soon things just start to pop out at you and you snap a pic! Thanks again for the awesome blog button!

  • Great idea, it’ good to get out of the box, and do things that aren’t the norm!

    Love the clouds, sorry about the heat wave and drought, that makes it so tough to grow anything, the lilies still look great though….

    and about that s’mores ice cream, send some my way! lol!

    Enjoy your day!

  • Great post!! I hope you get some rain soon. As beautiful as your yard and flowers are, the lack of rain must be frustrating for you.

    Love your random Thursday post and the button you have designed is really neat. It’s great to read and see other little snippets of your day to day life!

    Hope the thunder storm you had a few days back is giving your poor grass a bit of life again.

    Have a great weekend x

  • Let me just say…your grass is greener than ours! And my lilies out front all shriveled up and died, because we have a really long driveway and it’s too hard to cart water up there. 😦 I love your button you made for Cindy. So fun! Good job. I’ll be adding it to my blog, I think!

  • Hi, I know this post is from year ago but I was wondering if you the knew the name of your lilies? I have the same ones in my yard and I can’t seem to figure out their name. Thanks so much for your help.

    • To be honest with you, I really don’t know the name of any of our lilies. I’m pretty sure they are basic daylilies you might find at any garden center. All the lilies we have came from my mom, after she divided the plants in her garden.
