Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Happy Friday, dear strangers. I hope you survive the ending of the world. Merry Christmas from Palau.

Tree discovered on a Saturday drive.

Typhoon clean-up in a small village.

Morning view from my apartment.

Sun rise, from my apartment.

In the tropics, you have to get a little creative with your Christmas tree.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

I am so happy these websites exist. Thanks, Ann Marie.

People living near Chernobyl today. I miss Ukraine. Even the Chernobyly parts.

Musicians surprise Salvation Army bell ringers. Thanks, Val.

The customer reviews for this banana slicer on Amazon just keep giving. The Queen of Colors left a review a few months ago, if you care to dig back that far.

And last but not least, Paul Simon on Sesame Street. I have watched this video 200,000 times.

  1. Did you see simba by that tree? Or looking at the sunset? There is a very lion king like feel to those pictures.

  2. Thank you for consistently making me laugh!!
    I know you have been very focused on your love of cats and I am not trying to distract you from that but I was wondering if you have noted the page devoted to chickens? QOC might like to see it....

  3. My roommates and I had a Christmas tree very similar to yours, haha yours is great!

  4. Gosh, yeah, Christmas in Palau looks really miserable. I hope you manage to make it through. ;-)

  5. I love your Christmas tree! We always go out and cut our own, but a few years ago we had so much snow and ice and freezing rain on top of it all that there was no way I was going to venture out to cut a tree. So, while we were stuck in the house, my daughter and I painted some paper plates green and taped them on the wall in a big triangle, added some paper ornaments and that was our Christmas tree that year. It's one of our favorite Christmas memories :)

  6. Those pictures are breathtaking! And the first link? Incredible!!!! HAHAHAHA
