Beautiful Distractions

I need to be distracted today.  My beloved cat, Hobbes, is back at the vet again.  😦    He’s had a myriad of health issues in the last few years; mainly he’s just getting plain old at 17.   He’ll be 18 in January!   Right now the vet is waiting for the blood test results and we have an appointment at 6:30 this evening to go over the findings.   I’m coming to grips with the fact that he might not be with me too much longer.  But before I go there, I will wait to see what happens this evening when I meet with the vet.

In the meantime, I’m distracting myself with some pictures I took when we were in Carmel recently.  Here are they are for your viewing pleasure!  BY THE WAY, PLEASE CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO SEE THEM LARGER AND IN BETTER QUALITY!

The dawn of the unslept

I don’t know how many of you out there have insomnia, but it is one beast!  I’ve had it all my life.  Even as a child I can remember having a hard time falling asleep, but lately OMG…it’s been bad.  It’s definitely not the knee replacement, because it’s been feeling very good lately.  Oh yeah, my knee replacement!  Isn’t that why I started this whole blog in the first place?  😉

Who knows why this is going on but the last few days I’ve been running on very little sleep and last night I only got two hours.  I’m a bit cross-eyed looking at this screen; but not too much to say that I’m thankful I’m here, and I’m looking forward to our upcoming Alaska trip in one week!

I used to spend an inordinate amount of time in front of the computer not accomplishing anything at all, but now I’m out living life, enjoying my husband, making new friends, and reacquainting myself with old ones….WOW what a difference!

Please check out this link.  Mark Hirsch has been documenting the life of one oak tree for an entire year, taking one picture a day with his iPhone.  The creativity is INCREDIBLE!!!

Picture of the Day:  For your viewing pleasure, today we have a picture taken with my iPhone of my 17 year old cat, Hobbes.  🙂    *rawr*
