I feel like I've been in this one enough. Tomorrow at 4 p.m. I will be back again for more peeking up the sniffer. Last check until after the long weekend. Its not so much the office - but the almost 60 minutes of traveling - ONE WAY. But the doctor is worth the travel (as well as my peace of mind).
Ok, this was not my whole day, but pretty much 75% of it. We picked it up on the way home from the doctor today. The kids played from the moment we walked in the door. H2 skipped lunch (although I don't blame him - the doctor totally tortured him this AM) to keep playing. They only stopped for dinner and bed. The only time I got to play was bath time.
YES, I am completely addicted to the Lego games. It might be because it is the ONLY game I where I can beat the kids.
I was going to cheat today and use a photo from yesterday, and I was out in the front yard trying to feed the cat that won't come inside and I noticed the sky getting more colorful. I grabbed my camera & my keys and drove to my favorite spot. By the time I got there the sky was more like a watercolor painting than anything else. This is straight out of the camera - no editing. You know how I love an unedited photo.
I went on a journey today. I couldn't tell you how far I walked, I can tell you in the Texas heat, I feel like I sweated enough to fill a lake. I saw a row of blooming sunflowers and the boys and I ran over.....I found this lone red one and couldn't resist. We should all stand out in a crowd.
I was playing with the camera today - woefully uninspired am I. I think its the 3 day headache (I'm totally blaming it on the heat & humidity). My husband received this from a dear friend and I never could quiet get it right. But this is a learning experience right?
I took this not long before sunset on a nature walk with the boys. We saw three deer (yes I got a shot), we saw a 20 ft long snake skin laying in a tree (maybe that's an exaggerations but it was BIG) but I keep coming back to this photo. The play of the light on the trunk of the tree...I don't know moves me. Yes, I know I'm a dork.
Today was a hard day. My husband lost his mother Friday evening and she was laid to rest today. I didn't have the heart or desire to take a picture today, so this is from a few days back. It is my tribute to Betsy, although I suspect she would have preferred something more colorful. She was a special woman who raised three wonderful children & loved her grandchildren beyond comprehension.
I'm the opposite of most people I'm home Monday through Friday with the kids & I work Saturday & Sunday. So basically I think all you people living for the weekends are nuts. Today was a work day for me......
It was on this walk - and it wasn't a very far walk - that I was exposed to the horrors that might be poison ivy. I noticed when I went under the underpass that there were spotlights all over the ground. I was surprised to find that there were tiny holes (about 1 inch) in the pavement above to let the light through. I loved the way the lights made tiny little spotlights.
I'm going to be totally honest - I did not take this on Sunday. I did not even take this recently (this was taken on a ferry in New Zealand), but this is how I feel. Cloudy, misty, unclear and off in the distance. I'm definitely on the road to recovery. This has been an interesting ride. I have fluid & some calcification in the tendons in my neck. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and all the medications are making me feel, well lost in a fog. I didn't really have the energy to get out and hunt a photo so I pulled from my stores. I hope you will forgive the cheat.
