for your amusement only -

Because I know you’re just suffering at the moment. With your shingles. Have you tried cold compresses? Ibuprofen? Weeping silent tears?

Anyway. I’m growing out my hair – part rebellion, part fear re: new town and new hairdresser situation. Can’t go there yet. So sometimes I like to pin it up. Usually when it’s hot. Which it is, all this week. Hot and stormy.

I also saw some lightning in the sunset-sky. And heard some super-loud, house-rattling thunder that nearly gave Bailey a panic attack. Actually, it really might have been a panic attack. She’s not as young as she used to be.

Here’s my pinned up hair. And the incorrigible but fabulous K.Lo. And oh, since I’m sitting at my desk – let’s have a look at your birthday present!

I found him. Jesus, I mean.

One of these days I’ll get to the post office and you shall have him.

Here’s the dusky sky. Sadly, not the best lightning of the evening, but I did capture a bit of it nonetheless.

And now I’m going to bed.

wasn't jesus suppose to be my christmas present? i mean not that i'm keeping track or anything but ahem ahem.

also i love the pinned hair and brown shirt! and the off in the air lightening and of course the ever present dwig't. ;)

this momentarily distracts from what are now becoming quite rotund blisters on my back and i did mutter "jesus have mercy on my a sinner" everytime i woke up in surges of pain. i hope they are almost over.

Cute hair! The finding Jesus line cracked me up.

Nice lightning capture. It's tough to get it without technical work of tripod, shutter speed, etc., I think. (At least as far as getting a good lightning picture, and that one's cool with the lightning and the sunset sky.) So good job with the fast trigger finger.

The Jesus figurine is delightful.

M is totally cranky because she didn't do anything to deserve this ailment and well she is in pain and her skin is totally gross. And she is mumbling and irritated that I don't know what she is saying. Geez. I'm having flash backs to her early childhood.

Ice packs do seem to be a little soothing, as does Advil.
