Happy Hour



From the wonderful Astrology Zone

Aquarius: The eclipse, August 5, will bring your desires to fullness. It will also package all the good energy in the air and make it accessible to you. You should find that this month you can finally harness and direct it toward the areas you'd most like to improve.

OK. At last the day has arrived!! ... oh ... except the eclipse isn't really until tomorrow. What an unfortunate typo. OK, so ... more waiting.

Kicking back, receiving massage, taking a walk, reading blogs, listening to the blues - that's how I plan to spend today. Maybe I'll find someone to go have a drink with this afternoon. If I were a monarch butterfuly, I would belly up to a lovely purple flower, guzzle some nectar, but because I'm human, I guess it'll have to be a bar and a beer. Whatever.

Wish you and I could go out for a drink tonight. Wouldn't that be fun?

Inhale....

Reya Mellicker said...

Thanks, Dan. I will.

I rarely see a monarch butterfly these days. I remember my summers being literally filled with them as a girl. It's so special now when I see one. Fabulous pic. Enjoy your day!

willow said...

Oh, and don't guzzle too much nectar this afternoon.

Mary said...

It's your weekend ! enjoy

I am waiting in the wings as well

I had a monarch spend the day with me in the garden. The little neighbor boy wanted me to catch it for him so I had to give a lesson on "no" and "why?"

Reya Mellicker said...

Monarchs are special, I agree. They're so big!

Only one glass of nectar, I promise.

Steve said...

There's an eclipse tomorrow?!

Cool Jake picture.
Yes, he does look noble and handsome.
Much too hot here today.
Meant to be working or something.........
Have a large margarita for me.
I am not sophisticated -this is my favorite tipple.

Ah, a day with a plan I find can be just as good as a day without a plan.

Although the day you have plans and those plans fall through is equally crappy as a day where you have nothing planned, and you do nothing at all.

I'm glad you have a fun, relaxing plan.

Hi Reya! There's an excitement in your tone today, I like it! Beer and the blues sound good to me! Love that photograph! Take care.

I feel "drenched" in color,, such a wonderful nectar

steven said...

i love the gracious sweep of the red petalled flower sitting peacefully and watching the little yellow flowers dance and bob and wink and shimmy and sputter sweet littles into the air.
oh by the way, in the butterfly world a little pink flower with a red flower is called a beer and a patio! have a sweet day of peacefullness . . . . steven

ellen abbott said...

Yes, Reya, I would love that.

We have a ton of Monarchs here in my yard in the city. I have a large stand of butterfly weed (milkweed) which is the host plant for the caterpillars and we often have chrysalis (chrysali pl?) hanging on everything. Did you know it takes about 15 minutes for a caterpillar to change into it's chrysalis?

A-N-T-I-C-I-P-A-T-I-O-N...

I enjoyed the blues.

Peaches said...

Great photos.

John Hayes said...

Beautiful photos--love that red flower--wow! & thanks so much for the link!

Barry said...

There are times only a beer and a bar will do.

Enjoy!

This sounds like one of them.

Sandra Leigh said...

That butterfly photo is absolutely gorgeous, Reya.

Tom said...

aw, i'm feeling too good tonite to sing the blues--but maybe a cocktail with my newest 21 year old
kid will do...thanks for the idea!
btw, the last monarch i saw was the one sticking to my wife's grill after a long evening drive home...sort of heartbreaking.

The Bug said...

Wow - GORGEOUS pictures! I like the sky and all, but I'm a flower person mostly - well I like trees too. Hmm - maybe I'm about the ground & not the sky?

Can't wait to hear how tomorrow goes for you!

Reading this a day late, methinks. But your invocation of classic Blues has given my headphones a path to follow... Eclipse or no eclipse, a rainy day calls for it. Blues via Son House, in particular. Da master.

Tessa said...

That butterfly reminds me of the doodle you showed us the other day, Reya. The clarity of design is astounding. The art of nature - amazing.

black eyed Susans and hibiscus. Lovely.

A good drink in a comfortable location are always welcome to while away the time. Enjoy.
