And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.
Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. 😀 (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)
It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)
And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. 😉
Whether or not you celebrate Christmas on 25th December or on 7th January and New Year on 31 December or Chinese New Year (I don’t know the date), or you don’t celebrate anything religious, there is probably a time in your house when something is happening. Something is celebrated and things aren’t like they are rest of the year. Decorations come up, people are coming and going, there is more action and stuff going on than regular… And our pets get in the middle of all this. 😀
My cat is my only pet so far that I really had. Others were more like neighborhood pets when we kids would take care of some stray cat. Kiki was my first experience with cats + Christmas tree. Hahaha… Well. Lets just say we get presents, Kiki gets the big ass tree in the living room. 😀
First few years disasters were inevitable. She was playing with ornaments, getting them to fall of, crash few of the balls who left behind that sad silver magic dust of dead Christmas ball… One year she even knocked down the entire tree! 😀 I don’t know how she did it… But last few years she is showing more interest for the tree itself than the decorations. She had realized that we can’t reach her when she is under the tree so she goes there and munch on it, chewing…well…everything. Us yelling and shoo-ing her away doesn’t do much, she does it anyway when we go to sleep. Like a Santa. A hungry vegetarian Santa who munches on Christmas trees. Now that is a start of a horror movie.
Anyhowdilywho… She is more chill with the whole Christmas season. Except – The New Year’s Eve.
We live in a place where people…how do I say it so it doesn’t sound wrong… Like to shoot things. Fireworks. Firecrackers. Firecrackers in a bottle. Rockets. Anything. As long as it’s loud, we do it. I am saying “we” for the sake of the story I don’t do it. I don’t have the time! I have to watch all the fireworks going on 😀
Do not be mistaken – we have an official fireworks going on somewhere in the central square, but we have like thousands of mini fireworks all over the town to gaze upon when the clock hits midnight. For me, that is the best part of New Year’s Eve. For my cat, you guessed right, the worst.
So, we have to take pills from the vet and drug her two times that day so she is a bit sleepy and calmer, otherwise she is hysterical, meowing, panicking and pooping all over the house. It may seem funny but I feel so sorry for her when I see her in such fear. Also, a lot of pets run away, they get scared of the noise. 😦 That is why I am all up for forbidding all the stupid shooting.
It is almost 3 am and I am sitting here, not in a particularly comfortable position writing in the dark.
What is going on?
I don’t know.
Has internet and blogosphere trapped me again?
All I know is that I feel monday-ish all day and it’s still that day to me because I did not go to sleep yet (my logic), and I am looking at all sorts of challenges, writing, photo, prompts… A lot of stuff just awaits my attention and I can see myself write and write and write days away. 🙂 And that’s doesn’t even include all the things I have begun but aren’t posted yet… I honestly don’t know how it is like to be without inspiration on my blog, I literary have to hold myself up from not writing 10 posts in a day, and I hope I won’t taste the bitter taste of blank mind here.
So, what do I do when it’s too late for anything except bookmarking?
I share anti – blues video for Monday/Tuesday… Any day you need it. 🙂
Since I won’t be doing anything related this year, it is reblog time! I was really pumped up about it last two years because it didn’t really catch on here as a “holiday” up until last few years… So, I carved pumpkins. And I planned costume and went to Halloween parties, but I am yet to be something scary for Halloween. I went as Audrey Hepburn, maybe that’s scary for someone. 😉
I had no blog then, but I did last year (it was 4 months old awwww) so I posted about it. Enjoy 🙂
Hello y’all! 😀 I finally found the time to finish this post…
A week later… beter than never. 😉
So… I’ll explain what I did:
First I sketch the outline of mine carving of choice – cat silhouette. Then I realised that I have placed it to high, erase everything with sponge and sketch again. 😀 Second thing to do is the most annoying… Taking out the inside of the pumpkin. I have no proper tools, so I used knife and spoon, and later on smaller knife for carving. After about an hour my pumpkin was ready for carving. Despite…
But, every day I was happy about something and honestly, I don’t know how I fucking do it. Yes, there are times when I just want to sleep everything away and when I cry because I want to be free from pain but I don’t want to go there now.
Let me tell you what made me happy… 🙂
I was with my love, and I don’t mean chocolate 😉
I have three herbal cremes for (against?) pain so I was almost bathing in them and bf helped me every way he could.
I ate an amaaazing tiramisu, it really made my friday morning.
I discovered that I, in fact, love cinnemon for which I was sure I hate. As a concequence I drank a loooot of tea from apple and cinnemon. A lot. Yumm.
I cuddled with the most cuddly kitty I have ever “met”, my bf cat who is 5 months and is…adorable. She followed me around like a puppy. 🙂
It is now cold outside and it was cloudy/raining for days and it brought even some pretty big storms last week, but today the sun broke through the clouds. I loved it…
Every moment I was feeling better, I cherished. I sang to myself.
I woke up. And I see and I can walk, and talk and hear, and I am loved. It is a blessing. I don’t feel afraid. I feel like this is a new chapter and it is only going better. I know it. 🙂
I am really looking forward to reading all your comments…. ❤
Whaaat? I am gone for a week and WordPress changes the whole publish new post page?!?! :O I am in great shock!
It is only valid that I grace WP with my presence often, so it would not feel the need to change. (I still love you WP!)
And of course, to grace you with cat photos. – What else does one do when being away more than planned?
…Maybe there is one more thing… Yap. Many faces. Tired face – like now. Angry face – like maybe now if I don’t finish this fast. Sad face – if I woke up in the morning and still feel stomach ache. Happy face – if I wake up with no ache. Confused face – if I dream about having no ache but actually having one in reality. Surprised face – when I wake up from that dream. silly face – all the time. Sarcastic face – most of the time. Face – book.
I have a lot of faces as we can all see.. One is that I do in fact have a life (OMG) and I don’t get to post as much as I, in ideal world, would. But I wuv you still.
I’m talking to my blog, what are you looking at? 😉
“We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” Virginia Satir (American author and psychotherapist)
We need hugs. It would be so neat when there would exist a vending machine on the street that would give out hugs. But, that would have to be a robot. Or a vending machine with hands. Which would be freaky.
And people probably wouldn’t use it because they “wouldn’t want to be seen as weak and in need of a hug”. I don’t know why I used apostrophes, nobody said that.
But the reality is that WE DO. Wouldn’t it be nice to come out from a difficult meeting or exam or day at work or hard conversation at the coffee shop and have someone (something) hug you? Wouldn’t it also be great to have that when coming from an awesome meeting, exams you passed, great day at work and amazing conversation at the coffee shop?
But there is none.
Since they make one, we have this:
And I can include the awesome Lonely Island who also feel under the category of parodies and spoofs. I was planning to put one of their songs in The Feel-good Songs Challenge, and they fit perfectly. 😀
