Out And About Part II: The Sarah-ing

Since my phone was being argumentative last week, I figured I'd show you my photos of the Penn State's Arboretum this week.

Disclaimer: These photos are phone quality and do not do the place justice. I was surprised by how extensive the garden was. Also - late fall isn't exactly prime flower viewing time. Obviously Penn State really needs to work on developing some magical, all-weather flowers, but until then . . . 

Penn State Arboretum sunflowers
There were some very pretty and bushy yellow flowers.
I feel like these were called willow sunflowers, but I might be completely wrong.

Penn State Arboretum pumpkins
TONS of pumpkins/squashes/gourds all about.

To be perfectly honest, I was surprised college students didn't seem to be stealing them. I was ever so slightly tempted to snag one, but of course I did not. That would have been unethical. (Seriously, I didn't.)

Penn State Arboretum dead flowers
Some of the half dead flowers were quite picturesque.

Others were not.

There you have it, folks. My tour of the Penn State Arboretum. The water lilies that I included in my last post (aka, of other peoples' photos) were all closed up for the night because I got there just as the sun was starting to go down. I was a bit sad about that.

Maybe some year I'll actually make it to the Arboretum during spring or summer when things are really in bloom.

Out and About

I'm off at a training for work this week. I had to abandon my husband for hotel living and excellent food. I wanted to show off some photos I took, but my phone is being a brat (it doesn't take kindly to travel, apparently). Instead, here's other peoples' photos of the same place:

Only when I visited, the water lilies were all closed up.

Lots o' pumpkins. Very seasonal. Much festive.

The flowers were much more dead when I saw them.
Apparently late fall isn't really the best time of year for flowers.

The Last Minute Post

Ten minutes before I left for work, I realized, "I forgot about my blog!"

And so this week you get a gorgeous picture of Iceland.

I really want to visit Iceland.

Interpretive Bed Making

So my husband was "helping" put the sheets on the bed the other day.

I'm still working with my CPs and thinking about revisions, so my writing isn't terribly interesting. But my husband made some museum quality sheet interpretive art.

bad helper
At first I think he was just being an obstructionist.

Here he's still a bit of an obstructionist, but in a sit up and greet you sort of manner.

This is where he started getting creative.

billowy sheets
I failed to truly capture it, but there was a lot of up and down sheet movement.
Very billowy.
Quite moving.

there's a boy under that sheet
Then comes The Sprawl.
This is where he feels he is one with the bed.

The End.
