Ruby Tuesday: Odd assortment

Ruby Tuesday - hosted by Mary/the Teach at Work of the Poet - is here again. I've really missed doing Ruby Tuesday so yesterday, I engaged in a fairly desperate attempt to come up with some reds. For better or worse I offer them here...

I'm not feeling too well this morning so I may post this and go back to bed for a bit and then visit everyone later in the day. Looking forward to checking in on everyone, though.




My kitchen timer (matches my new red pots and pans)....



Neighbor's chimney.



My mouse....


Yesterday morning, looking out the back door in search of some signs of Spring, I spotted instead this Coca Cola truck. Since I lost my big tree last year, I can see this big motel or golf club or some such place. When the trees fill in it will be mostly hidden again until the leaves fall again. But yesterday the view offered a big red truck so...



Prayer flags...


Then, last week I visited Trav's Thoughts, where he had posted his Superhero and a link to the Hero Factory so you could create your own. This is my super hero(ine). I think she's kind of cool except I don't know why they added the Baroness part. Such is life. She doesn't have much read, but here name is in red and this seemd as good a way as any to share her.



Last but not least, Shannon was visiting yesterday. Webkins has been replaced - or at least is in competition with - something called Club Penguin. This was a dance competition.


Have a lovely Tuesday!!

LOL! I LOVE that timer! That is really cute! But Raven... I do wonder... if you struggle to come up with "red"... why do you spend them all in one post? You could have had several weeks worth of rubies out of this!

Kay said...

Aye, spread the red around :)

I love the timer too... and I have red plates and bowls and cups but sadly my pots and pans are black.

Also love the little guy at the end, adorable!

Great bunch of reds. And I'm a Coke-not-Pepsi person myself, so that was a very good choice. And that timer is adorable. I'd time everything if I had one like it!! Hope you feel better after your snooze!

Dianne said...

Rachel said...

I love your little red hen timer! Some days I miss Ruby Tuesday and other days I am glad for the time off. Today I am down. I haven't been feeling well all week, but I need to go to work, so I better get my bum out of this chair ....

Hi Nessa. Fabulous 'Ruby Tuesday' posting. I miss doing RT, and just have too many things happening to be able to do all the memes I so enjoy.

Alice said...

Raven... it just dawned on my I called you Nessa, so I came back to apologize for that. Guess it's maybe time I go to bed and get some sleep, lol.

All the red pictures are just great.
Your Super Heroine is the counterpart to my Super Hero.

Your obsession with red is like my obsession with anime and the Sims. I hope you get to collect some more red things :)

Boomka said...

That rooster cracks me up. My mother has a lot of roosters in her kitchen. I don't understand the parallel but hey it works!

Carletta said...

Not sure why I missed this. :(
I love the rooster timer - that is so cute.
You've found great reds to share!
I'm a Pepsi girl myself but the Coke truck is a super find.
I've been meaning to go to that Hero Factory site ever since Dr. John did his but I haven't got there yet.
Your Robin - now you know Spring is there!
