Favorite pic of the day

I just love big cats!   Like ya'll didn't know that. 
I LOVE the way the back one is chewing on the pool.
They're obviously juvenile, probably come 
down out of the mountains to find a poodle 
or two to munch on.

Some of my favorite pictures for the beginning of the week.

I'm going to try and get the first one added to my layout. THAT is what the sun looks like a lot of the time right now. I'm getting headaches from the glare. I have sunglasses, but keep forgetting them, blahblahblah. It feels like my body is failing me. Stupid body.

I watched Brent's mom walk down the stairs yesterday and thought "My god. Look how limber she is! She's gonna outlive me." I hope I'm wrong, only because I think she's pushing 60, and that doesn't give me much time. But if I went to the doctor and told her EVERYthing that was wrong with me, it would cost me hundreds of dollars to get it all checked out. And most of it is weight related - even the arthritis. Stupid body. Stupid inhabitant.

COACH DOG!!   I always think of
[profile] kokopelleigh when I see this picture.
She's all about the matching accessories.

I SO WANT one of these dogs.  I think this one is a silver lab.
Look at its eyes!  I'm a sucker for blue eyes.  Look at the love!

This is Winter.  Isn't she amazing? 
The camera loves her.

And this is Honey.  A blonde Dachsund.
Isn't she sexy? Well you know, dog-sexy.

I'm still kinda sick, but I don't care.

Danyel said "Chinese!" and I said "I'm THERE!"

So Leigh and Danyel and a few others and me 
are all gonna meet at Taste of Asia and eat a late dinner.

I'm wearing my glasses, so thot I'd snap a couple pics, 
since I said I'd show you.  No question what color my eyes
are in THESE pics. (at least I don't think so)

I might have cut my head off, but I like the first one best.

Stolen from several...

Post a picture of one of your bookshelves -- one shelf, two, part of a shelf, whatever, as long as the titles are readable. Choose whatever shelf you want: your porn collection, your textbooks, your favorite novels, whatever.

First two shelves, newest bookshelf. Bought when Orenthal
decided to start gifting me! Yes, I had to have new shelves to
hold them, and some others I've purchased at book sales 
since then. I luves me a book sale. I haven't read any of these yet.

Top shelf of the book case my stepdad made me. Several Bibles
one of which is my grandmother's, and lotsa God-books. I ADORE
historical fiction, especially written in Biblical times. I want more 
detail than the KJV will ever offer.

Most the photos that line this second shelf are laid down for these 
next shots. These are some of my favorites, mixed in with more
God-stuff.  If you've never read a John Steinbeck, I highly recommend
starting with The Winter Of Our Discontent. It's priceless.

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. That's three copies of Lord of the Dance on the shelf there. 
It's one of my favorite books of ALL TIME, and when I lost my copy, I was devastated.
SO devastated that I bought myself a paperback then purchased two hard backs 
at library book sales two years in a row before I was able to remind myself that I didn't
need any more.  

I also recommend God Game by Andrew Greeley. He's got a 
fascinating insight into what might be the mind of God. He's a great

Otherwise, I've been having a pretty damned good weekend. Scarlett and I saw Mr. Magorium's Magic Emporium, and it was far less stupid and silly than I expected. Of course Dustin Hoffman is brilliant, and I could watch Jason Bateman read the newspaper. 

I've done some Christmas shopping, and took Scarlett out on her first Black Friday.  Also managed to get her things laid away today at KMart, and there was much rejoicing in my heart.  I was afraid I was going to have to go to Wal-Mart in order to get what she wanted, but no. Thank God and Greyhound KMart was carrying it too. And at a decent price.  There's maybe one more thing I'd like to get her, but they sure as hell didn't have it there. 

Now I'm gonna lay down. I've got a couple hours before she gets home, and I'm cold. bleh

Ciao bebbehs.

What a great day I have had.  Brent and I went out to eat breakfast, but shouldn't have.  He took a notion to go to the mall afterward, and we had such a good TIME!   We wanted to eat everything in sight!  It was so great to be out with him, just walking around, talking and laughing, looking at stuff.  It melted me every time he'd put his hand on my back, or put his arm around me.  He laughed when I told him how astonished I was at his decision to come out, and he said "It doesn't take much to make you happy, does it?"  He's right, it doesn't.  We ran into a couple of my old friends, and I introduced him, then we stood and talked for a minute or two.  As we parted ways Jodie patted Brent's arm and said "You've got a great girl there!".  He replied, "Yes I do, I know."  

He's so awesome. 

So here's the watch, it only needed a battery, the jeweler said it looked great inside, very clean.  It's gold plated, and (as I mentioned) Swiss made.  It fits just the slightest bit snug, but it's comfortable.  I like it very much.  Brent came into the jewelry store with me, and we actually looked at various jewelry. Even wedding bands for him.  And he didn't freak out.  I was so amazed. 

I had a hard time taking this pic, took about 6-8 takes.  The pic was always blurry, or had a glare, so this is the best of the bunch. 

Of course while I was taking the pictures, Mitzi was all "up in my grill" wondering what I was doing, sniffing the watch, begging for rubs.  So I took some pics of her, and then Suzi.  They are such sweeties.  I'll be so glad when I can have all my peeps in one place, Brent, Scarlett and the kittie-girls.  They deserve better attention.

Then I caught these poses:

The second one in the window is so poignant!  So I looked up
"poignant quotes" and found this from James Thurber.  I'm gonna 
post it in Cat Macros. 

I know. I'm a mush.  I like it that way.

I think this is going to be my last Chihuly post for a while.  I love all my pictures, but wanted to save the best here in my journal.  I will probably make some new icons now that I have pics of my own.

Here are some more pics from Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh.

Here are some of the pictures I took Saturday at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh.
Despite the fact that Scarlett was a shit, I was grateful for the opportunity to see such 
beauty and art in person.  My only real regret was not touching some of the glass. 
I had plenty of chances, but was too reverend for my own satisfaction.

I didn't touch up the color on the pic of Scarlett because it tended to make her kinda red. 

The sage-y color of the room where she's standing is accurate - it was grey and blue and only 
slightly green. And it smelled fabulous. Scarlett took a sketch pad, but I don't know how many 
things she drew while she was there.  She was too busy darting from thing to thing. As a result
she missed a lot.  

The orchid room was a real pleasure, and a great opportunity for me to experiment with my flash
and my telephoto. (as you can see)  They're so vaginal. 

The rest of the photos have developed beautifully with only the slightest brightness adjustment. 
It was overcast all day, heavily gray as you'll see in some of the other pics, but it was simply 
beautiful weather. Cool, crisp, almost no rain.  And Pittsburgh is awesome. I wish I traveled
there more often.  I think I might, once I show Brent some of the opportunities there.
