Stay Tuned



The picture is a teaser!   More to come soon!

Friday, I spent the entire day putting up the Christmas tree. I wanted to surprise MSM.  And, I did. He loved it! I have done it alone for so many years, I knew it would be easier to do it myself. Sad, but true.

A few finishing touches and I am ready to use my new camera to take pictures of this years tree. There is still so much more to learn about all the functions in different picture taking settings. As most of you know, photographing a lit Christmas tree can be a challenge.

Stay tuned.

Look What I Have ~ A New Camera

I am so happy to have a new camera. I have wanted one for quite some time and this is a nice one. It has features that I am going to have to go to the manual to learn how to use. Usually, I can figure out the buttons and nobs by trial and error. But, not this time. I have had it for quite some time and still have not had time to work with it. The camera is a belated Birthday present from MSM. It was certainly worth the wait! For the past six months I have been using MSM's camera. I am so happy to have this camera. And, I expect to feel that way in six months!




We were planning on spending Thanksgiving with MSM's family in San Jose which is about a 2-1/2 hour drive from here. Pet sitters have been arranged for one night away. Unfortunately, we just received a call telling us about a serious illness in the family. The mother of MSM's daughter-in-law went into the hospital about two weeks ago for a hip replacement and expecting to be in the hospital only a few days. Very sadly, she has developed complications not limited to but including an infection that have become life threatening. She has already been moved to a different hospital that has treatment facilities that weren't available at the first hospital. The most frightening fact is that there is talk about removing her hip! I have never heard about doing that. It sounds horrible! Perhaps, there is more to the story that wasn't told to us, like hip replacement. In addition, she has suffered from MS for many years and has been using a walker. We pray for a full recovery.

Also, today, MSM has a medical appointment with a urologist because of a slightly elevated lab work. He feels great with absolutely no symptoms. He is going, "kicking all the way", only because his doctor made the referral. I say, "be safe, not sorry".

And, then there is me ~ ~ ~ just "putting one foot in front of the other".  After, the first of the year, I will work on seeing some Pain Specialists. Yes, it has been a challenging month for many of us.

Hope your Thanksgiving week is going Beautifully. The seasonal colors are exquisite.

I have so many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season, mostly for the wonderful relationship with MSM. He has become everything I could possible wish for in my life. The past year has been one of profound personal growth, compassion and love.

Feeling In The Pink

Such a delicate rose. Her name is Elle'  by Jackson- Perkins. Her color is shell pink with yellow and she gives a lovely citrus and spice fragrance.  

Yes, I am feeling a lot better, kinda like in the pink. I no longer have any dizziness since my head injury and the swelling on the back of my head is minimal. There is still some tenderness at the area of impact. But, overall I am in the pink and feel extremely fortunate! 

 
I am able to enjoy this rose and a few others from my living room window. I enjoy them so much when I open the shades in the morning.
I want a new camera! No matter how hard I try to get nice clear and crisp photos, I always feel disappointed. I am considering the Olympus-e-450 camera with lens.  Any suggestions?

I hope you have a Fabulous Day.
