Things that discombobulate me:

Hot chocolate that will not mix
no matter the number of times you stir it.

Beautiful animals
killed and stuffed
and used in retail stores
to sell items.

Wings of a dead fly
stuck on a spider web
attached to an ornamental cherry.

The inner workings
of a really big clock.

A blue glass bug
in the middle of nowhere
missing his wings.

A black frame
left up against
a wagon wheel.

A long white fence
leading nowhere.

Discombobulate huh? That's a big word for me to think about on Monday! :) Why does hot chocolate not mix all the time? Sometimes that happens with chocolate pudding and chocolate milk too. Hmmmm. Maybe some chocolate mix conspiracy.

I don't like seeing animals stuffed. It always bothers me.

I love the black frame against the wagon wheel and the fence line leading nowhere. Wonderful photos.

Oh My Goodness...... yes---we get discombobulated, don't we?????? I get discombobulated when it never rains here (like I can do something about it....) ha

I get discombobulated when I lose my glasses --or can't find my water container---or forget what I'm looking for.... Shall I do on ?????? ha ha

Have a good week.

I have a way to make hot chocolate that turns out creamy smooth!! I add just a small amount of milk to the mix, and stir it till all the chocolate is dissolved, then mike it for 15-20 seconds, stir again then add the rest of the milk. Mike til hot and no debris! I make my own though from real cocoa, sugar and milk.
But anyway, your pictures are awesome, and your post brought me a laugh and a smile!!

That cute little blue bug is so precious.... and I love that fence going to nowhere.. hope your Tuesday is fabulous!

It's me said...

Beautiful pictures!!...happy new week

Sarah Knight said...

Interesting images ; )

When the hot chocolate won't mix though — don't drink it!

Spiders build their webs in the strangest places sometimes. We have one that keeps doing it on the front porch in front of the door. Everyday I walk into & thereby destroy this creation, and curse this creature for ding the same insane thing yet again... Oh, spiders!

Anyway, beautiful photos!

Well that's a big word, I had to look it up to be sure of it's meaning. Now I have to think about what discombobulates me.
Have a Happy Week, hope it's not a discombobulated one. XX

Jen said...

I always love your photos; they're so interesting. That last one of the fence is my favorite I think - it's too cool!

Lesley said...

Discombobulate will be my word of the day!
Great photographs as always, Catherine :)

Beautiful post again Catherine!!!

enjoy your day..


Tanja said...

Hello Catherine, thank you for the visit on my blog and the nice comment. Please feel free to come back at any time.
I like the post over Monday:
Monday's are always the most difficult day for me when the workweek started. Yesterday I was free from work, so today is a kind of monday for me.;-(

Kind regards

Hi, dear Cat!

I've had another enjoyable ol' catch up! (I wasn't too far behind, this time.) Somehow, seeing you celebrate Thanksgiving propels me into the season. (That, and the way that the leaves are just DROPPING off the tree in the front, at the moment. =O)

I'm glad that Banjoy (oh, I don't think that I'll fix that typo =]) is doing okay - even though.....

I love the photos of the animals and the flowers and the butterflies (wow!) but the series of photos of the boys and the dinosaur........ well, I got a good hearty laugh out of that!

"Happy, happy autumn!" We say it back and forth and over and over but we do love it!

Love, Katy

Brian said...

Those could do it, but the pictures are really great. Hopefully you will become combobulated once again!

Bossy Betty said...

It does not take much to discombobulate me. Lovely pictures!

Alina said...

Dear Catherine, such a romantic heart! I love you! XO

Linda Robinson said...

Luiza said...

I agree....Mondays...
And all the things you just brought up!

Have a lovely tuesday !

Ann said...

I hate that when the hot chocolate won't mix. The picture with the black frame is really awesome. But then all your pictures are pretty awesome :)

Tamago said...

Oh,,,animals killed and stuffed...they are just heartbreaking.
But your pictures are too wonderful to discombobulate me!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I'm with you on all of this, even though it's now Tuesday--That discombobulates me! :-)

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Great pictures, as always...I love the clock and the black frame. :)

The hot chocolate mix drives me nuts too...

Velvet Over Steel said...

Becca said...

Love this post, and the last photo of the fence is so nice! Love it!

Lisa said...

I love the fence and love Mondays. I used to hate Mondays for what reason I dont know but now love them. My kids are all on there own so I guess each day is a blessing to me where each just goes with the flow. No Im not that old. .Just started very young.
Great post.

Jackee said...

Beautiful pictures, Catherine! Thank you so much for sharing. :o) But I hate to be the one to break it to you... the water has to be hot for the chocolate to dissolve. LOL! (Just teasing.)

Have a great day!

Jaime said...

That clock is spectacular! I could see myself watching its workings for a very long time.

What kind of chocolate would that be?!?!?! I wouldn't trust chocolate that doesn't melt.
