Wednesday 18 February 2009

Another quickie today, it has been overcast and raining lightly on and off all day. Everything is damp and we are still hovering around the freezing mark. I took this picture a few weeks ago from my kitchen window after we had about 6-8 inches the one night.

We had temps go as low as -18F and as a result had these long icicles hanging from the roof of the house. At sunset the one evening these ones were picking up the red/orange of the sunset and I tried to get behind them so that the color would be reflected nicely but there wasn't much room. I thought they were pretty anyway.
Thanks again to everyone for their well wishes and concern, I will address all of your questions soon (I hope). I am feeling a bit better today but the dreary day didn't help.

Monday 16 February 2009

It hasn't been a good day but here is a picture of my new kitten who turned up on my doorstep at about the same time as I got my palomino foal in the last post. What is really weird is that they are very similar in color and both the same in temperament, very jumpy and scared of everything. (okay the kitten is the third picture, blogger is reversing order on the pictures again)

I am going to make this short. The first pic softened the blow for the picture of what the kick did to my face, taken 8 days after the accident. It has been a month now and the lobe of my ear is still very painful but everything else is back to normal, just a bit of discoloration between ear and eye where the kick originally landed but that will go with time. I have been meaning to write a post about this incident and will so when I am in a better frame of mind. Hope the pic isnt too scary, what with my ugly mug, wrinkles and the bruising, it is enough to scare the bravest of souls LOL.
The first pic is of Stan's puppy, she is only 7 months old and loves the snow, catches snowballs. I have a lot more pics of her but have spent very little time with my camera and computer over the past month so haven't edited much.

Thanks to you all for your persistence and concern, I hope I am on the mend, just need to get my mind right. I have been doing a lot of crochet to keep myself relaxed and have listed a whole bunch of stuff on (sorry it requires you to register but is worth it if you like handmade goodies) a new website for home made items that a friend made me aware of recently. Check it out and let me know what you think. I am adding stuff every few days, I really need to get my photography paying for itself.
((((Hugs)))) to you all and I am trying to catch up on all your posts and pictures but it is going to take some time!!!

Saturday 14 February 2009

Wow it is Valentines Day again, I have never really observed all of these holidays because I feel they are too commercialised. The picture above was one taken at the end of January of my brat Goldie who still looks like a teddy bear.

Thanks so much to you all for your concern. I have healed, I was very lucky. I am plannng a post about the accident but have been in recluse mode for a while. Now that the temps are changing again and hopefuly we are through the coldest weather and it has been cold unlike anything I have experienced before, I am starting to get my motivation going again. I have avoided the computer almost completely and have taken very few photos of any note in the last month but it is time for me to boot myself up the butt and get going.

Thank you all again. It is nice to know there are people out there that care, I know Donna and CG went through something similar recently. ((((((Huge Hugs)))))
