A Little Bit~O~This And A Little Bit~O~That...
This is going to be an interesting post. I'm going to try to write less! It's obviously Spring here.
I have no idea how Ohno got there. He's in the bookcase in my office, nearly six feet off the floor. He's a gem.
Horribly blurry, but a beautiful camelia non the less.
I would love to say that the big limb kicked my ass, but nope, it was the little one. 5 days of absolute concussion hell. I'm recovering. I think I'm going to make it. No, I don't recommend this to anyone. Be careful.
Our beautiful mock plum...
Our fence is still down, so this is a photo our neighbor's, Betty Anne's, beautiful newly sodded back yard. It cost between $3,000-$4,000. Our yard is 3 times as big. We wanted to do the same, but the insurance company wouldn't cooperate. I'll go over and lay on her lawn. She loves me, she won't mind!
Rob and me in Los Angeles when we lived next to dear friends Charlie and Renee! (Hi Renee!!!)
Phatty~Foo~Foo in the potpourri bowl. That's gotta hurt!
Phatty~Foo~Foo, just being Phatty ~Foo~Foo. You would never believe she was a feral! Never!
Feeding my wonderful ferals at the park. Yes, it is a picnic. I didn't lie! And yes, I'm very organized!
This is the kittie chair. Yes, it is insane. I try to protect it with a cover and towels, but what the hell, it's just a wreck! I was almost embarrassed to show this photos, but who cares. Life is too short. It is what it is! It ain't pretty, but they love it for some reason. Obviously. I'm laughing. Why, because it's funny. It's just such a wreck! But it is what it is. Pico (Picasso) on top, then Rusty on the pillow, then Cloe. It's ugly, but it's happiness!
Mickey sleeping next to me in my office/studio!
A drawing I did for a client. She didn't want it. I still love it.
And finally, photos I took after recovering from the flu. I was finally able to take a shower!!! I couldn't stop smiling. After battling the flu I didn't think I'd ever see water again! I took these photos after returning from the park and feeding the ferals. I was happy just to be alive. Honestly. They're blurry. I love that. You can't see all my wrinkles! Yes, I'm so grey, and finally you get to see it. Grey doesn't always show up in photos, but here it did. I'm grateful. An honest depiction. I like that. I took photos of me in a distant mirror. Holding a camera out in front isn't the most reliable way to photograph, but I love the effect. Blurry. So no matter how much you inlarge, it will still be blurry!
Now, I want to hold a contest. What to do about my hair. I'm almost 50 and a Leo, so hair is important. Should I cut it? Should I color it? What? Should I go back, spring ahead? Lighten up, keep a heavy load? What? When I went home 4 years ago everyone in my family was telling me to change the color. I almost did, but then at the last moment didn't. I've never looked back. Perhaps I should? Grey or not grey...that is the question.
I love you all and hope you enjoyed!
