Thankful Thursday hosted by


UPDATE: 
Today I'm thankful to report I had my 2nd COVID vaccine on Monday, Feb 22.
My reaction was a very, very sore injection site much more so than the 1st vaccine. I took a Tylenol before I went to bed on Monday.  Soreness much better but I had some fatigue on Tuesday.  
UPDATE TO MY UPDATE: Interesting event after my 2nd vaccine:  I first noticed my fatigue and sluggish feeling about supper time Monday. 
As of yesterday afternoon, I was back to my feisty self! All of a sudden,  about 3ish yesterday, was no longer fatigued and I could raise my arm above my head!
Now the weird thing, just before that magical hour I had a strong desire for  a Kosher dill pickle.  I ate two spears.   I like them lots but rarely eat them out of the jar.  What was that about?  LOL  So as my Friend Pix said 2 kosher pickles a day keep the COVID reactions away!!!

Happy Tuesday

 


Hosted by Comedy Plus 


Last week we had 1 morning out of 7 without monsoons
(FYI: we had a total of 5" of rain last week) 
We took advantage the blustery morning to take a walk at the 
NC Museum of Art trail.  It made us very happy and oh did we see lots of happy wagging dog tails.  The photo at the top of the collage was taken
on Saturday February 20, the first full day of sun in 7 days.
This huskie is happy to be walking with his person and his shadow.


 We were surprised to read the galleries were open..but for sure
happy that folks can finally have some diversity in their daily routines.

Here are a few photos with pops of color and a few matching the gray day

Angel Madi earned her room and board by doing this very thing.  She knew 
her Dad needed entertaining while he was paying bills.
Her victims were flying Pens and turning regular stamps into 'Air Mail'

Nature and Feline Friday and National Mint Chocolate Day

Hosted by LLB Gang

Dui and Roxy and HER from Australia sent me this amazing photo of a
Spider web.  OMDs I don't want to see the spider that spun that.

Look what I found across my drive way this morning. (February 6, 2021)


It is a close up, but it was about a foot and a half wide.  The anchoring Threads spanned about 6 or 7 feet! 

Dear Dui and Roxy please tell HER

 I don't want to come face to face with the 8 legger who spun that web...

I thank our hostess Comedy Plus

My Feline Nephews are now da best of buddies
Below is a video of Rocky bathing Kat..so very sweet.
Rocky is devoted to the task; however, eventually Kat says E N O U G H!!
I hope you can see it.

Happy 51st Valentine's Anniversary to US

 



Tonight we are having eye round roast and fixings and Mrs. Smith's Blackberry Cobbler for dessert.
We have very high hopes (once I have had my 2nd COVID vaccine) of once again actually 
dressing up, rather than being in  jeans and New Balance shoes, for a nice 51st anniversary in a nice restaurant. Yesterday Feb 13, 2020, was the last time we dined in a restaurant.

Saturday Symmetry and stuff

The last three lines of,
Road Less Traveled by Robert Frost 
always pop in my mine's eye when we discover a new path on an old trail.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

 Recently we took a trail less traveled recently and it made all the difference.
We find this simple yet fun play ground.



The sign 7 min walk to grocery store and pharmacy fails to mention the very long gradual hill..
This building in the middle is all glass 
Boilermaker Blvd. is a sign by a driveway we see on our neighborhood walks

Dearest Nephews!!!
MOL BOL my nephews... what a beautimous photo and oh my cats Kat and Rocky look at you two beside each other watching Pup outside.  Did he bring some snow in on his paws?
