Why do we humans care so much about what other people think of us?  Especially, when it comes to strangers...I mean, I can understand the rational for those closest to us, I struggle with that myself frequently.  But yet, when it comes to strangers, I just don't get it.

And yet, at times, I find myself tempted to do that exact thing.

OK, so I was super down and I realized that I didn't even get a pic posted.  Crazy..I feel like I failed.  But let's put it behind us, shall we?  Life happens and lately, it's been happening badly. :(

I SAW a pic I wished I had taken today but didn't venture back across the ice to take it.  Maybe tomorrow.

Today, for a few moments, it felt like a hint of spring. The wind had stopped for just seconds and the sun was so was lovely. I feel happy that I've made it through the winter. It wasn't as difficult as I had anticipated. I had a lot of worry about the snow and ice this year because of the falls Steven and I both took last year and the ensuing breaks, tears, surgery, and months and months of PT. But the sun is shining and spring is creeping closer. I'll actually enjoy the snow expected to fall tomorrow.

As I was cleaning the windows on the car yesterday at a gas station, I had this realization that sometimes you can lose your vision so slowly, imperceptibly that you don't realize it until it completely foggy or gone altogether.

Strange, I know, but for some reason, this dried flower wall hanging made me sad.

Such cuties! Gabbi's become friends with Bogie now too! She's often a little fooler at first simply because of her small size...she doesn't want to get stepped on or squashed. But this is adorable...they've become a family. :)

Asthma and Allergy Specialist...about 50 needle jabs and scratches later, we've determined that I'm not allergic to anything (which I already knew) and I'm diagnosed with a cough. Great. That's what *I told* you I was there for in the first place! Sigh. Onward we go.

This is how I've been (physically) feeling lately...dizzy, disoriented, distracted, disassociated, off-balance. But, I've found out...maybe it's the meds they're trying??

Scary. New drawing books, my first REAL sketchbooks. They start at me and try to intimidate me. Well, I've decided I'm going to win. I'm just gonna start. Does it matter if it's a masterpiece? Nope. Starting somewhere is the key. In fact, starting it is the key. :) I'm hoping to go doodle on some good paper tonight.

Hoping for a dropped morsel!

OK, so technically, this wasn't taken yesterday because it was after 12am but it was legitimately taken before I went to sleep so l'm gonna count it. I'll call it, "wall of inspiration". I need a fresh start.

A rather bad pic of a 1/2 eaten crockpot of boiled peanuts...but they were good! :)

For some reason I had tatoos on the brain today or last night. Was thinking of getting one and decided I might have more fun with henna because I could do some of my art designs and use myself for my "canvas". I have some henna for hair that I picked up on closeout for $0.50 and thought I'd try it to see how it'd work. Not perfect and I don't know how well it will "stain" my skin but I like the designs at least. Steven said he'll paint some on my back too. I like that I was able to to it *now* with stuff I already had. Instant gratification is so rare these days.

Anyway, a little bright point in pain fill existence. I'm trying at least. :)
