Another Way of Seeing Sunset

  1. ooh, so very pretty!! I do love the impressionist-style photos.

    Today: not a great day. I've been struggling for a week or so to balance meds. During taper down of prednisone, I started going back to wheezing & not getting enough oxygen. Still playing the balance-the-meds game. :(

    Cat pounced on me at 3 a.m. and woke me up from a sound melatonin-induced sleep, to boot.

    That plus a flare up of inflammation makes Maria a very cranky girl.

    Hoping the mimes will be quiet. The boss types are all gone today. CEO to SFO for family Xmas; Director on a day off.

    I've got stuff to do that should keep me busy.

    Still stupidly warm (50F) for the season.

    Hoping to lose the crankypants and find the bluebird of happiness...

  2. Such a reflective piece!

    Go check out the blawg… scroll past the current Xenocide installment (or better yet, read that too) to see what happened here yesterday evening. Nothing around here surprises me nowadays. :-P

    The VGW has been scribbled upon… let the day begin!

  3. This is such a beautiful picture - very contemplative.

    Hope everyone is having a good day and Maria, hope you get those meds balanced soon.

    Off to lunch with a friend. Pad Thai, here I come (OK, in a few hours!)

  4. Morning Gang!!!

    We did get rain yesterday, Jim. WooHoo. Not the tornadic weather they thought might happen. Sun is shining now so we can dry out a bit.
    It all helps to replenish the lakes and aquifers.

    Braved shopping a bit yesterday. Need to go out again today for a few things.

    Beth, keep warm. I'm enjoying our 50s days. Why I live in Texas.

    Maria, think your audio work sounds great. I love listening to books in the car. Hope the med balancing evens out for you soon.

    Farf, I just love reading the adventures at your place. Makes me feel so boring. Boring B Good most of the time.

    Hubby started his rumcake baking for gifts last night. Nine done and about ten more needed. His sis helped. I stayed out of the way.

    Happy Chanukah and Christmas to all participants. Good food and enjoyable family time to the atheists in the bunch.

    Beautiful pic Andy. Though I love the pups on their beds. We got two dog beds and the boys occasionally even sleep on them.

    Waves to Dina, Janet, Candis, Kelly and all to come.

  5. Good morning everyone!!!!

    Haven't been around in awhile, but through the kindness of some friends I have a computer to play around with.

    I hope everyone has been doing fine. Maria I hope you get to feeling better.

    Happy Chanukah to everyone and I hope Christmas is just as enjoyable.

    I've got a few other places to drop by, so this post will be short. Hopefully I can remember how to get back on my latest blog and once I do I can start filling everyone in on what's been going on with me.

    Take care,


  6. Woo hoo, w00t, hurrah! FM!

    Sorry for all the troubles, Maria. I hope things improve as the week goes on.

    Will go to your blog as soon as I'm finished here, Farf.

    Yum, Pad Thai. I won't say have a good lunch since you are obviously going to have one, Dina.

    Glad you got rain and no damage, Lisa. Happy holidays (and happy holiday break from teaching) to you and your family.

  7. Gorgeous photo! You two are just oozing with talent :)

    Cuhhhrazy at work. My boss was talking to me last night and she said she thought it was sick that both parents had to work and that a parent of a disabled child should have to work and run the gauntlet and jump the hurdles that we do just to get through days. I was actually touched. I said that I did like getting out and being with people but she said that I'd get out regardless. I did agree with her that I'd take more risks in action stuff if I didn't work but that it's true parents in European and most other civilized countries have alot more freedom and social safety nets to be able to care for their children... in many ways. Heck, I'd just take health care for all as a good start.

    Wayne has said that if he wasn't so old that he'd consider moving with his job to another country as they have offices everywher. But that he couldn't be able to retire there and our kids would have to move back anyways. Norway would be incredible! But they keep trying to send him Israel. LOL

    I don't think I want to go from one war economy to another war economy. :)

    Sorry Beth about your Broncos. My son was rooting for them also. His teacher got him hooked on the blue and orange.

  8. Andi -- that is lovely!

    FM -- HELLOOOOO!!!! {{{BIGHUGs}}}

  9. Thanks, Janet. That was nice of your boss to be concerned.

    And thanks, Candis.

  10. FAM!!!!! I'm SO happy to see you out and about! I sure hope that computer behaves itself, and we'll see you regularly. I've missed you. What a treat!

    And a Lisa sighting, too. Glad I stopped by, even though I'm late. Waving madly to long-lost friends.

    Thanks, Janet. Tebow plays better each week, but they can't win 'em all. Hopefully they bounce back this week.

    Doing a fast-forward to get into the Christmas spirit. It's zooming up on me without my realizing it. Watching A Christmas Carol this evening - wandered around the mall - bought cards - tomorrow I'll make candy and wrap presents, and enjoy the season while it lasts.

    Happy Tuesday, y'all!
