week 2 – wherein I remain focused

Surprisingly enough I’ve managed to remain focused on this take a photo every single day thing. At least for the second week running. And no crazy last minute “holy crap I’m going to bed and I haven’t taken a photo yet” episodes.  I like to think of that as a good omen. Nothing spectacular in this bunch. Mostly I’m just playing around taking photos. I’m sure this comes as a shock to no one but myself, but it’s a pretty good way to nudge my memory regarding what was going on during the week. And trust me, my memory needs all the nudging it can get.

So I was filling in for one of my coworkers when lo and behold the cake fairy delivered seven, yes SEVEN pieces of cake. Normally there are 3 or 4 of us in the office at one time.  Today it happened to be just three. And since I was manning the gate, all the cake was deposited in front of me. Right there…for me to smell in all its homemade cake goodness. Be still my heart! Will someone come and eat this scrumptiouness for before I NOM all seven pieces myself? Someone? Please? (You may notice there are only 6 pieces in this photo. One of my co-workers answered my plea.)

Little Orlando has not been feeling well as of late. She was diagnosed in November with insulinoma, which is not that uncommon in ferrets unfortunately.  She was doing pretty well until this week when she just seemed not quite herself.  After a visit to the vet, we found out her blood sugar was WAY low. So hopefully a change of meds will get her back to her little ferrety self. I snapped this while Orlando was uncharacteristically nearly asleep in Chad’s hands.

Today was the last remaining calendar day on which I had not found a geocache (standard disclaimer: Discounting Leap Day). And I was resolved to change that, come rain or shine – it was rain, of course.  I picked a puzzle multi cache which required me to visit two cemeteries and this one random marker in memory of Rev. Pool & Family. This is a medallion on the marker itself. I thought the blue fuzziness of this shot really went with the feeling of the day. And yes, it got colder and wetter before I found the cache.

On December 21, 2011 I brought home a lovely flower arrangement from a Christmas party. This cut orchid was in the arrangement. Yes, it is in fact a live cut flower. And it is still in pretty darn good shape. The rest of the arrangement fell apart, but this little guy keeps going. Currently it’s in an empty gin bottle from Smooth Ambler Distillery.

I told you to expect photos of cats. After all we have four and they do some ridiculously cute things. This is Kimi and she is terrible happy with herself most all the time. And she stays still, so taking her photo is much easier than doing so with the other three. Although it being Friday the 13th it probably would have been more appropriate to take a photo of Seti, our black cat.  (You can see the static is hitting us pretty hard, poor Kimi has stray hairs stuck to her face.)

I took this with an app called Retro Camera on my Android phone (it was free and as you will see, I really like it). Reminds me off all those negatives I have laying around from my good old Pentax K1000.  This “C” is sitting in the window of the staircase to the attic. I pass it every day and most times I forget it’s even there.

Chad and I were killing time (before going to see Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol) in Bed Bath & Beyond as we were too efficient in our errand running and thus had time to kill.  I was feeling a little disoriented which is often the case in BB&B. It was about that time that I noticed these really sparkly and entrancing tissue holders. I probably need to get out more.
