A Short Post on Thursday-

 

I took this photo of the hedges a few weeks ago; they’re planted outside the Technology building, on the college campus. I think they’re so pretty, but I’m not sure what type of hedge it is.  Maybe you might know!  It’s officially fall now, but some of the interesting plants on campus are still blooming.  I’m hoping to get a picture of one that I saw blooming Tuesday; it was very pretty!

Today, I was outside with Haiden (see how I snuck in a photo of him?)  We found this Walking-stick on the side of my car, while getting the mail.

Lastly, I didn’t want to be over confident going into my English class this semester and I was really more worried about it than the Beginning Algebra I’m taking. I’m making an A in both classes; however, all my fears of over-confidence in English are gone!

Apparently, I have more problems with punctuation than just exclamation points and ellipses.

Most people don’t use them; I use too many.  I apparently, have a problem with SEMI-COLONS as well.

Some people have a way with the English language…

and some people …Not have way.

*There is a new post on Lil’ Camper that Could, for those of you following along with the camper progress.

I found one of those yesterday. They seem to be in abundance this year. I don't recall seeing them in past years but they are sure abundant this year.

I'm so proud of you continuing your education!

I'm not very good with plants so I have no idea what that shrub is but it is pretty. I'm also not very good with punctuation or even grammar sometimes. It's a good thing I don't need to know that stuff to do my job. :)

Honestly, I was once a whiz at punctuation, but I know I've lost about everything I ever learned. Congrats on your A's!

Hi! It's a Texas sage, or as we also call it, a barometer plant. It seems every house around us has at least one, and it's a common hedge or accent plant in Texas.

I am the opposite. I do terrible in Algebra and good in English. I do think we all have trouble with semi-colons from time to time. You sound like you are doing great!

Anna is right and I use too many commas also :)

That is a neat bush/plant; I don't think I've ever seen it before. Believe it or not, I was an algebra tutor while in high school, but that was MANY moons ago!!! Not many people today use proper grammar. I just got an advertising email from an online store with "alot" in big letters. IT'S TWO WORDS!!!!!!!!!! Keep up your good work!

Texas Sage......its one of my very favorite plants! I love to drive South....down in the New Braunfels area, to see these growing. I have one bush that is growing in my front flowerbed.....

I over punctuate too. I wanted to use exclamations there, but didn't. I feel my writing is monotone without them. Ha! (There, I feel better.) just wanted to say, I love your writing style every time I visit. Just read through several posts and you are a breath of fresh air.
