where are the bears ....???

....or.... the dolls you may ask? Well, uhm ... honestly, I don't know. My blog seems to have become a weather beacon ... lol ....

However, I am enjoying trying to capture some beautiful shots of nature while waiting to feel clever enough to get back to the fuzzy guys and the faces....











It has been a very "off" year. First my broken foot ... now, almost to the week that I was able to quit limping on that ... I wrecked my back trying to heave a bathtub around. Stupid. But, we all have those moments of delusion, right? When we think we are able to still do things that most people half our age wouldn't dream of trying? Yep... So, that means for the past two weeks now, my days have disappeared in a blur of appointments (well, the time goes by in a blur..not the actual appointments, of course) Here it is already afternoon and all I have done so far is go for an x-ray. They all take far too much time; as a matter of fact they use up a whole day. Drive there ... wait ... quick appointment ... throw up in chiropractor's parking lot ... drive home... lie down... etc.... so, no desire nor time to make anything this week. No suppers being made either.... lucky for me I have "Plan-Overs" in the freezer. After yesterday's appointment, however, I think there may be a bit of movement today ... should be, it was painful enough to get to this point. Today I can walk up and down steps and almost bend over to tie shoes. Yaaaayyyy!! I feel almost human. If I feel miserable, irritable, slightly down or disillusioned, it is so tough to create fun or pretty things. Normally, I am quite an optimistic person who truly enjoys the simple things in life and am able to find joy and beauty in the smallest of them.

This morning was a perfect beauty opportunity photo wise. We had another small amount of snow after a great sunny day yesterday. The temperature must have dipped last night; just enough to make it snow instead of rain, but now, with the brilliant sunshine, it has disappeared once again. Just look how pretty against the blue, blue sky ..... almost looks like spring blossoms .....

Oh dear - I hope you get back to normal soon. Nothing worse than a bad back! We have 4" of snow here, sigh. I can't remember when we haven't had snow for Halloween!

ACK!! SNOW PICTURES!!! Brrrrrr.

It does sound like you've had a really off year. Take care out in that snow that you don't fall into a snowdrift and freeze somethin' too.

Warmest bear hugs on a lovely AUTUMN day!! Aleta
