Today is the last day i'm sitting the appartment of a friend of mine (taking care of the flowers mainly.) I told her i'll also get a baby-elephant to live in her appartement while she's on vacation (her favourite animal) and so that's what i did.
Made up a nice little story and put photocopies of this photomontage in an envelope. I bet she will enjoy that story very much tomorrow!

That's her appartement where the little elephant is standing. :D

It is Sunday morning here so here's something mundane and simple from Friday afternoon:

My wife and I were eating some fig fruits after lunch at our place of business. We gave some to our maintenance workers and they liked it. They said it was the first time they ever had fig-fruits. It was figs from a store, not from our fig tree at home. The tree at home is starting to produce some fruit, but the fruit doesn't look that great yet.

I cut my belly with a box cutter. It was one of those folding ones that bend in half but the little tab to pull it open is super worn so I stupidly braced it against myself. When it popped open I got a nasty but not too gross slice across my side. Today is not starting well!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

I looked in the refrigerator at the tomato sauce bottle.
Needless to say - it didn't look back.

Not sure about tomato sauces with eyes, but I could tell you about my block of cheddar that grew ears...
