Journey of a body on this earth


“Explore the Elements Travel” Challenge

I have been challenged by my friend Sue Jones to participate in the “Explore the Elements Travel” challenge.  Thanks for the nomination and challenge accepted!  The challenge is about publishing photos that represent the four earth elements, fire, wind/air, water and earth.  I decided to go back into my archives and show some older photos.  If you hover over the image you can see the description. Drumroll please!……..

Part of the challenge asks me to nominate five people.  I think it all ends tomorrow, so my apologies for this late nomination!

Kitty Update

Hobbes is home!  For those of you who read my previous blog, I was a bit worried about him and has to rush him to the vet.  Turns out he had a pancreatic attack.  He’s had these before, so they gave him lots of IV fluids and a pain medication to help his discomfort.  The doctor did notice some tremors and frankly I’ve noticed them too, so I need to keep a watchful eye on him now.

He’s got his medications here, his fluids, his food, his love…what more could a cat want eh?  🙂

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!
