I’ve been a crappy blogger this week so I’m going to take it out with a bank (or a bang), with flourish, with some photos!
First of all, look what I got!!!!
There it is! My Foil Cat award from Kathy V. at Don’t Forget to Feed the Baby. Kathy held a poetry contest to win the Foil Cat and a book. I wrote a poem and then had my name randomly picked out of a hat to win, which proves I’m the best poet on WordPress. I think it does. Don’t you? Yeah, it does. I just realized that I should include the poem so everyone who is too lazy to click on the link can read my achingly powerful poetry.
I have a kitty
Though not as pretty
As one made in foil
I have Goodnight Moon
But I am a loon
And want that yellow book
Kathy has a great blog and did a great current events piece (really a serial) on the storm and power outage in Baltimore a week or so ago. Since learning I had won the Foil Cat, I have been concerned about how to display my award. I thought it was going to be a life size Foil Cat but it is not, it is a petite foil cat thus fits very comfortable on my kitchen window sill where I can admire it everyday.
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you know that my sister, Molly, lived with me for four months and recently moved out and into her beautiful new house. I told some funny stories about us living together, stories that usually had to do with my nephew who is a real character. I never wrote about the dark side. Sure we get along and laugh a lot and like many of the same things but that doesn’t mean that it was all rainbows and unicorns.
For one thing, this happened:
I’m not even going to show you what the toothpaste looked like.
Oregon is finally having summer which is more than I can say for the past two years here.
This is my yard which makes me very happy:
And the sunset from my deck:
I’m definitely not on my blogging game this week. I sometimes have anxiety issues and they’ve been worse for the past couple of weeks so I’ve upped the prozac and just have to wait for it to kick in so sorry for being a dud. This also reminds me that my anxiety is nothing compared to what others who suffer from clinical depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, panic disorder, etc. go through. Magically Mad who I wrote about not long ago and who is Madly Talented has been MIA and now I know she is in the hospital recovering from an overdose. So while I feel crappy, I am grateful that mine is a very manageable condition and I pray for those who are suffering.
Have a good weekend!
I will be back to my normal brilliant self soon!
