Perspective...look for the details

Sometimes when things get too overwhelming, I prefer to look for the details. Life is taken easier in small bites at times.

Almost lost Rick this time. Ironically, it would've been one year and one day from his original surgery. Fortunately, we made it to the ER in time, and everyone was on their game. He bounced back fast, and was out of the hospital in 3 days--in on Thurs, out on Sun, and only one day intubated in CCU. HOPEFULLY we won't need to do this again, but we have another redefinition of our life, unfortunately, and more things to watch and watch out for. Blast. But, at least he is here and we can doing the watching together.

Shapes: Sasquatch maybe??

Gotta wonder at the sense of humor of the auto designers. This is the design on the rear bumper of Rick's car, where you would step to get in and out of the back end. Kind of reminds me of 2-toed aliens, or could that be a really small Sasquatch print?

My DD and SiL are coming next week and bringing my 3 grands, and as I was getting ready for them, I saw SHAPES! Next week is going to be incredibly hectic (a 5 1/2 yr old, an almost 3 yr old, and a 20 month old) but just having family around is going to be so much fun and so good for Rick's mental health! Mine, too! Nothing like little girl hugs and kisses and giggles to get you feeling your best.

Late Season Lilies

Out at the nursery this weekend and the waterlilies are still blooming--I love the late season blooms, but hate the bugs that congregate on the blossoms and the leaves. I could drive myself nuts with the clone tool, and so just decided to skip it.

Appropriate Signage

I laughed out loud when I saw this street sign at the hospital yesterday....could it get any more appropriate? I wonder how many people see the sign and never even notice it? I LOVE stuff like this!

Hosta Abstracts

Got caught up in the curves and swirls in the hosta leaves...thinking a little abstractedly today.

...and a little on edge, too

Doesn't this make you think of "Little House on the Prairie"?
