I’ve been keeping a low profile for the past month and from the looks of what our weather has been like, I did not miss much! If I’m not mistaken, it has rained around 90% of the last 30 days!! I haven’t really paid much attention to the weather lately because I recently underwent two separate eye surgeries. Because of the nature of my eyes (incredibly outrageously near-sided), I’ve been advised to proceed with caution. My recovery and restrictions have been twice as long as the average person. While I’m waiting for my new vision to fine-tune itself, I’ve done little reading and writing. I’ve only recently ventured on to my laptop for short periods of time and my iPad time has been quite limited. In addition to my eyes figuring out when they are going to decide to play nicely together, I’m very sensitive to average to bright lights, screens and skies. I’ve been advised to give my eyes more time before looking into glasses to help. Until then, while the rainy days don’t necessarily help me see, they don’t hurt!





Photo a day Challenge- Raindrops


E is for Extreme Close Up

Who knew it could be so difficult finding a subject for the extreme close up prompt? I filled my camera with lots of “up close and personal” photos but nothing was catching my eye. Then my sister brought home this huge bucket from her movie outing and there it was- popcorn!

That’s some big popcorn!



D is for Dream

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” –Oprah Winfrey

I often wonder if the adventures our dog, Ari, takes in her dreams live up to her real life. She’s had many adventures, more often than not stumbling into them. She refuses to share them with us so we can only imagine where she goes and what she does.

Peace and love,





B is for Black & White

AtoZ2019tenthAnnSo far so good! Second day or the A to Z Challenge and I’m still here! I know that sounds pretty darn pathetic but these days it’s a miracle when I can accomplish something as simple as posting two days in a row!

The star of today’s photo is Ari’s friend, Casey. She tends to be a bit dramatic and lately she has been caught striking some picture-worthy poses.

A day/week late….. for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Shadows but here I am!

This is a quiet hallway where I would sit in the shadows when I needed to escape the sometimes depressing hospital atmosphere.

Casey is trying to dodge the shadows and enjoy the little bit of sunshine she can find.
