Nothing today


I got nothing today.

I've got this song in honor of tax day, but nothing else. (My apologies to those of you who've already received this from me, but I really like the song.)

I went out this a.m. to find something pink to photograph, and found playground bars and a water fountain but nothing's working. I blame it on my long day yesterday, and my overall yucky mood.

So here I am - me & Miss Lily in the dark, cluttered back hall. Barely any light, so not a particularly good shot (in fact, it's pretty bad), but it's also pretty cute.

And I notice my mother's hands there on the end of my arms. (An extraordinary trick, to be sure!) Sarah of Rich Inner Life will appreciate that.

  1. I like the bracelets I never see you wear. Impressed by your flexibility too!

  2. I actually HAVE a lot of bracelets, but as you know - if YOU is Katie - they're usually draped around the bottom of candles as decoration - and the Ganesh is wearing 3! Today I'M actually wearing a couple. The white one is a gift from MB, & the big blue/green one is to keep that small white one from slipping off.

    And I hope you're not being sarcastic re: my flexibility. I'm getting old! I can only do so much! But thanks for noticing that I TRY!

  5. Katie - Sorry - I had a typo & it would've driven me CRAZY, so I had to delete my response & start over! I kinda knew you weren't being sarcastic. Bless you! I hope one day to be as flexible as Lily and YOU!

  8. Lily & Christy! Thanks! I have been running late this morning, dealing with a sick cat at home (she's okay, but not a great morning when you get up late in the first place) & when I opened up EmmaTree I thought the picture looked worse than I remembered. So a couple of positive thoughts were much appreciated!

  9. It is a great photo and says a lot about your relationship with your cat. She is right there wondering what you are up to.

  10. Glasses as hair accessories, a woman after my own heart!
    I think my husband (the accountant) is teh only person who said "If you are paying taxes, it means you are making money and thats a good thing"

  11. SMC - Right now said cat is wondering what could possibly be behind the file cabinet in my office & is violently trying to wedge her quite well-fed body into the 3inch space - I think she's just been successful. This should be interesting.

    Michelle - Did you ever see that old movie "An Unmarried Woman" with Jill Clayburgh? She, too, wore her glasses atop her head & spent quite a bit of time untangling her hair from those glasses. I could SO relate.
