Ruby Tuesday

Maryt/The Teach over at Work of the Poet has something called Ruby Tuesday which featuring all things red.

I should probably have skipped today. Not very happy about any of these photos. I'm in blog fatigue - and mortal fatigue too, I guess - at the moment. Anyway, today I have a three wick candle that I didn't think to light when I photographed it, a bunch of odd red weedy leaves in the uncut grass of my yard and my woo woo basket with my tarot cards and my tingshas (the little gong-like things). That's it from me. Happy Tuesday.








Late morning addition: A bunch of people asked about the tingshas and I wish I had thought of this earlier. Just went and googled and found this. It's only 36 seconds long but it answers the question.




HAPPY TUESDAY IN EVERY COLOR!

Is that candle cherry scented? :)
I love the weeds. I've been noticing the subtle changes lately and it means fall isn't far behind and I can hardly wait.
That is one bright red basket. I need to google those little gong like things - I have no idea what they are for.

I'm so wicked and lazy that I seldom respond to comments on the theory that people won't come back and read my responses anyway...that said, since you asked specific questions, carletta... the candle is cinnamon. I love cinnamon.

One thing about taking so many pictures - I'm much more aware of the phases of change even within the season..

Tinshas are little sort of like cymbols. In the old days when I gave reiki classes and had more gatherings in my apartment (in NYC), I'd use them to mark the beginning and ending of rituals. They have a wonderful resonant sound.

Nice shots.

Hey Raven...I put up my Wordzzle yesterday and added my name to Mr. Linky today.I was going to as what's a tinghsa...just saw your reply up above

Bobbie said...

I'd like a candle like that, especially if it's cinnamon scented. That's one of my two favorite scents for candles -- the other is vanilla. Happy Ruby Tuesday, Raven.

Glad I read the comments about the candle! I was going to ask what it was! A scented candle is always a delight!

Love the variety of ruby pics!

Love the red basket.
Have a Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Leora said...

I am glad you posted even if you are feeling blog-fatigue. Because you always find such interesting variety. Great weeds, they really caught my eye.

About responding to comments, sometimes I read the response to my comment the next time I visit a blog. Especially if I know it's a blogger who answers the comments.

But you get so many comments, it might be hard to keep up with them all! So responding to specific questions sounds like a good strategy.

You may have been lazy but you got three photos all showing red! :)

I have been noticing a lot of red/orange poking up around and leaves changing especially on my blueberry bush. You found some fun red around Raven...

Ralph said...

The photos are great, and after all, red is red. The red growth in the grass is my favorite here.

Good pictures, Raven!

jientje said...

mmmm, a cinnamon candle!!
There's only one scent I love even better, and that's orange-cinnamon! I love it during the winter!
I love that red basket Raven, it looks very cosy and homely to me!

Rambling Woods said...

I hope you feel better Raven...

dot said...

Interesting post. Hope you feel better soon!

Deborah Godin said...

A very nice series of "rubies." And I'm surprised that there's tingshas on YouTube; guess everything must be there! Anyway, adds a special touch to hear them here.

juliana said...

Hi Raven. I found your post far more interesting than you seem to have, lol. I enjoyed it. I have the same medicine cards and book, though haven't used them for ages and beyond. I like the sound of the tingshas.

See my post here, and/or my whole blog I Was Born2Cree8.

Dianne said...

I love the weeds!!

and I have the exact same basket - my DIL took it and has tons of little tiny white hand towels in it.

You've been posting every day for quite a while now - which is great if you want to. I can rarely do that and I don't want to. Except for 3 regular things - I post what and when I want, feels better that way.

And I do the same thing Leora does re. comment responses, I check back the next time I visit.

Rest :)

Raven -- I don't know what has you feeling down, especially with all this cheery red around. What ever it is, I hope it goes away and leaves you be.

Light your wonderful red candle, chime the tingas, and heal.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You found TONS of red stuff, Raven. Fun post. ;-)

Amber Star said...

You did find a lot of red things. I really liked the you tube of the tsingshas thingys. *LOL* Couldn't remember how to spell them, but really did love the sound of them.

the teach said...

Fantastic post Katherine for Ruby Tuesday! I really like the video. Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

Rambling Woods said...

Raven..thank you do much for sharing your post and poem on bats. You certainly had an interesting job and it is nice to know that not everybody hates them...Michelle.

Raven, I love the basket of books. It makes me want to get off this computer and do some reading.

Judi~Gmj said...

Truly enjoyed your RT post! I love the big red candle, the red weeds and the red basket containing your medicine cards and tingshas (they make a wonderful sound).

Askew To You said...

Sorry that I'm getting to you so late in the day.

I like your photos. You always come up with something original for Ruby Tuesday. :D

I'm sorry that you are fatigued. I get that way sometimes, too. Then, I take a couple days break, do more reading than writing.

The Mulligan Family said...

Love the "weeds" and the tingshas. The sound they make is so beautiful. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comments.

Cheers!

The leaves are lovely! Thanks for sharing.

Jim said...

Hi Raven, I like your RED's today! My pick is the basket, I'm partial to them.
hank you for peeking in on my baby quilts. This is a nice project for us.

Now I'm headed up to look at your critters again. My WW is on the 'Little Photo Place.'

Gattina said...

Looking around you suddenly saw red it seems, lol !

Patti said...

I love the photo of those pretty red weeds, signaling August and the approaching change of seasons. Very nice.

I like scented candles too. You can always light this one and use that photo for another Ruby Tuesday entry. ;-)

Interesting video, I also didn't know what tingshas were.

Happy Belated Ruby Tuesday to you.
