Week 5 – From Where I Stand (& Sit)

I thought I’d give this From Where I Stand thing a try. Problem is, I don’t go too many cool places during the week* and the carpet in the house really needs to be ripped out and burnt. (We are systematically working on the ripping out part, but not the burning part.)

At any rate, I was too lame lazy to come up with a different theme, so onward I trudged, trusty phone pointing downward to capture my little feet. (My feet aren’t really little, I wear anywhere from a size 8.5 to 9.5.)

It was dinner time for Orlando. Which is to say it was really medicine time for Orlando. I went into her room to see if she was awake and sure enough, she was having a snack in the second floor of her her cage, which is  a bit of a mess. I don’t hassle her too much about it since she only goes to her cage for a snack or sometimes to take a nap in her third floor hammock.  I was wearing my lovely purple birkenstock birkis (barely in the photo) which have A. Been around a long time and B. Taken quite a beating from me.

My days are pretty cyclical and boring. Like clockwork Orlando gets her meds twice a day(or rather Chad and I wrestle her meds into her). I’m not 100% sure what her schedule is, but I think she mixes it up so we are confused. At any rate Orlando HATES her medicine and after protesting as much as possible will retreat to the pictured bag in order to wipe her chin off.

As you can see she is already recovered from the trauma and on her way to do something very important.

I am in my stocking feet. Please note my socks are labeled R and L. Also please note I have them on the properly corresponding foot. That was a big accomplishment for me.

I was on the road for work today.  As you can see, the car is really in need of a good scrubbing, or at least some floor mats. I was unsure of the weather and since I really hate driving in high heels I went with boots.  (Fear not, I was not driving when I took this photo. I was making sitting at one of West Virginia’s fine new rest stations along I-79.)

I was hanging out in the living room on the sofa, which is not a usual occurrence for anyone in our house this time of the year. Any non-cat member of our house at least. I thought I’d take a cute photo of Ghost (the tabby cat on the opposite sofa) all curled up and happily dozing. In the short time it took me to find my phone on the sofa on which I was sitting and get it to camera mode, she woke up and just as I was hitting the shutter button her brother Freyr jumped on my lap. “Oh hai!”

I took another photo once I got Captain PhotoBomb out of my way, but I decided this really was a good example of  From Where I Sit. I’m wearing a relatively new pair of slippers. I haven’t had slippers since I was a kid. These things are the bomb. So warm. So fuzzy. I think I am begining understand why all the hip kids in town wear their slippers out of the house.

I took Friday as a vacation day and went geocaching with Bump. It was a great day to be out and about. Being out in the sun was just delightful. I took this photo while in the middle of a multi-cache. I’m wearing my old trusty Doc Martens which were purchased for me by Dad on April 23, 1999 at Daniel’s Men’s Store in Morgantown, WV. This is my second pair of Docs. My first pair I bought during my Sophomore year of college at WVU at a now defunct store called Wizard’s Records. I’m still Grunge at heart.

It was a big day of geocaching in South Park with a bunch of the MAGPI gang. I hadn’t packed extra shoes or socks which I was sorely regretting by the time I got home. My first act upon returning home was to rid myself of hiking boots & socks. As you can see Freyr came to greet me. It’s nice to have warm welcome home – even if it is just to let me know the food bowls were low.

Sunday was a day of incredible sloth for me. And by that I mean I only left the house to take our recycling to the main drop off station and have dinner, and that I worked out from home. All of that though, didn’t happen until well after 2 p.m. For the first part of the day I hung out in my fancy warm slippers and caught up on reading some blogs. Life is good. Ok, you’ll have to excuse me now while I freak out for being slothful all day.

*It would probably be more accurate to say I generally don’t remember to take the daily photo until after I’m home from any cool place I may have ventured. This week I was in fact out and about.
