I don’t have a lot to say today. For some odd reason, I could not fall asleep last night and it wasn’t until 3 am when I finally nodded off. Three hours of sleep is a sad thing indeed.
Today I was quiet at work. I don’t know how many people asked me if I was ok. It’s true, I wasn’t my normal self but it’s ok to have a quiet day now and then. I felt off, but compared it to this time last year when my significant other was in the throes of a chemo treatment that left him weak, sick and sad. So when you put it in that perspective, today was rather peachy.
It rained, as well. Poured cats and dogs, complete with thunder and wind.
It suited my mood, actually.
And when I came home, my husband was nowhere to be found. For a moment, I panicked but the dog was calm and happy to see me, so I knew all was well. And then I saw him out the window. He was walking along with the camera, taking pictures of little things that caught his eye. Everything in this post was taken by him, in fact. I think many of these photos were taken before it began raining this morning.
And because we’re like two peas in a pod, I processed the photos he took. Because that’s what I like to do.
Funny story: A friend of mine rented one of those Zip cars to go to CT and pick up a piece of furniture from a friend. She wanted a car that would fit a big chair and asked me to measure the hatch opening of my Element. It was the perfect fit, so she ordered the Element for the day. Unfortunately, there were no instructions for getting the seats to lie flat against the walls of the car, so she asked if I would tell her how to do it.
I took about 4 photos and figured the best way to explain to her was to write a post, which I quickly did, and then I ‘buried it’ in my blog. Basically, I set it to publish just after January 1 of this year, thinking nobody would ever see it but us.
So imagine my surprise when I checked my mail last night to find a slew of comments from readers who now know how dirty my car is. Apparently, the post came up in their google readers. At first, I was quite chagrined. But then I decided to embrace the embarrassment and laugh about it. Here’s my disgusting car [link].
And so it seems that even though I haven’t much to say, I can still fill a blog post with words. Imagine that . . .
Hope yours was a good day and that your tomorrow is even better. Until then, my friends . . .
