Me & Milo; Milo and I

I'm doing my best to ignore you

I'm doing my best to ignore you

The other day Milo had just comfortably settled himself into the corner of the couch when I leaned over and whispered in his ear that he needed to ‘get down’. His response? ‘Yo! Talk to the paw, bro!’ He got down – when he was good and ready.

Last of the season's roses

Last of the season's roses

Some areas around here have had their first frost so I’m not holding my breath to see if the last few buds actually bloom or not. Fingers crossed and here’s hoping but….

Next week it’ll be time to trim all the plants back to stubble height, turn the earth and mix in some loam and peat/fertilizer mix. This year I think we’ll get a bale of hay or two to spread over the flower beds. Autumn wind down time.

‘Art Attack’

October 3, 2009

Kel at Xfacta has issued another of her Art Attack challenges – this one is to create a Wordle Word Cloud. Hey ! I can do that! I used my blog’s URL. For some reason the screen capture and HTML cut and paste aren’t allowing the image to show so follow the linky link below.

http://www.wordle.net/show/wrdl/1191038/norm54blog – link

(Stealing some of the text from Kel’s post…. ahem, thanks Kel.)
I just created a word cloud using this blog’s URL. The creation page at Wordle allows you to enter a bunch of text (perhaps an article, blog post, mission statement . . .) or a URL. There’s edit options so you can adjust colour, layout, font etc.

Join in the fun. Create a word cloud of your blog, or anything else you choose.
Post the results and your observations.
Then comment here with a link back to Kel to say you’ve just had an art attack.

And a big thank you to Kel for the creative ‘nudge’. 😉
