It is a good thing that I decided to do a Project 52 because even posting once a week has proven to be difficult. Work, taking care of mom, and several side projects have really taken over my life lately. I try to stop in on twitter once in a while just to stay connected but it seems that all my friends there are crazy busy as well. At least I feel better knowing that I am not alone! It must be in the air 🙂
It has still been nasty and raining around here but we are supposed to be getting some sunshine this week and I am looking forward to it. The flooding in our area was getting bad and very dangerous so we really need the rain to go on hiatus. I like a rainy day but only if I can stay in curled up with a good book or the remote control.
The photo I am posting today is another cemetery shot on yes another rainy day. I have found myself drawn to cemeteries lately and I am not sure why. I love really old places with beautiful stones and monuments. I love looking at the dates and finding last names that I have never heard of.
I know the saying is the “Calm Before the Storm” but today was anything but calm.
It has been a very trying day. I felt off all day, just out of sorts and totally out of it, I woke up feeling that way and couldn’t shake it all day. Work was on every nerve I have and of course it was creeping by at a snail’s pace. I had all of these errands and chores I needed to get done when I got home and the only thing I accomplished was getting the laundry put away. I then sat on the sofa just trying to will myself into a better place.
The evening didn’t get any easier, it actually got even more difficult. Relationships are hard and they take a lot of work whether it is a friendship or a marriage. They are tested and the future of that relationship relies on how each person reacts in those difficult situations. The universe was preparing me for a rough time today and I am grateful after the fact because it helped me to keep calm and be rational. Mistakes can be made, trust can be broken, and relationship can change but what you can take away from any difficult situation is how you handled yourself. That is the one thing that is in your control.
Now before I get all kinds of emails and texts, I am good. I promise. At the end of the day I was reminded of how wonderful one of my girls is and how much she cares for me. I am more of a seeing the light at the end of the tunnel kind of gal so there is light behind those clouds 🙂
More clouds with a little added bonus 🙂 I am too tired to tell a story or share my super exciting night so I will just leave you with the photo. OH and I saw “Tron” finally, it was ok. Had some great parts but them some EH parts as well. I expected a lot more.
I had a hard time today giving blood and it affected me like it never has before so I have been asleep for the last few hours. I give on a pretty regular basis and I have never gotten sick or felt faint but man alive I almost passed out on the Red Cross bus today. I felt so horrible for taking up their time to put cold compresses on me and hold my juice but I just felt the room spin when I got up to leave. Thank goodness I didn’t pass out, how horrible of a scene would that have been!!
They had an even harder time than usual finding my vein and the woman pushed the needle so far in I was about a second away from punching her LOL! That might have had something to do with it and now my arm still hurts and is quite bruised. I tell ya I can really do it up right can’t I 🙂
I think I am going to make this a cloud week. I pulled into my moms drive after work and saw the sun hidden by these big clouds so I ran in to get the camera. The sky can be so majestic at times 🙂
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
I thought yesterday was a lazy day… today put yesterday to shame. I was so lazy that I am still at my moms. Loading the car and then carrying it in seemed like so much work so I basically just avoided it 🙂
I am doing a post and run tonight as I am in the middle of watching Dexter episodes so I can’t take too much time from them. I might be a tad obsessed.
I have become obsessed with clouds over the last few days and today as I was walking to my car I looked up top find another beautiful sky stretched out before me.
I know it is getting repetitive but I never tire of seeing a gorgeous sky or sunset.
I rarely leave my desk at work, it just seems to much trouble and I am usually freezing and I don’t want to leave my heater but sometimes the view outside the window is too much to resist. The sky is blue the clouds are beautiful and the weather is perfect and it is the absolute best thing to step outside and enjoy it. The problem is…then you have to go back 🙂
I took this with my iPhone and once again used Camera + to edit.
