definitely not pretty.
so, i have been amusing myself making new headers and watching old movies. i did sneak down to my office today to leave some things for meetings i'm supposed to be in tomorrow. i can join by teleconference....if i'm not in the chair.
it's just been that kind of weekend - the movie was so-so (the switch) and the food at my favorite chinese place was not so hot. lizzie has decided that she loves pooping in my studio/den. the weather is still hot. but, in the grand scheme of things it could all be worse so i best make the best of it. i have dental insurance now, jason bateman was adorable in the movie (so was the little boy), the chinese food wasn't so horrible that i didn't eat it...and the dog issue can be resolved with a bit more diligence in making sure she goes outside more often.... right?
today on my ipod - brilliant disguise (bruce springsteen), get your sh*t together (beth hart), mercedes benz (janis joplin), a pirate looks at forty (jimmy buffet), meet virginia (train), tyrone (erika badu), easy to be hard (three dog night), who's going to ride your wild horses (u2), lean on me (bill withers)

Oh my! This photo is so soothing in it's colours. Love it! It seems that sometimes life throws us a bunch of stuff at once, doesn't it? Glad you're trying to see the bright side. Makes it a bit easier to get throught to the other end of it all.ReplyDelete
Everything can be resolved :)ReplyDelete

I wouldn't bet on it. Can't train my two for anything. Stubborn little fools.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear about the dental problem. What a way to ruin your day.ReplyDelete
On the plus side your blog looks awesome! I love it! When I come here it just feels so cozy : )
Your sunflowers are just brilliant...wonderful photograph...and I'm truly sorry about the accident and the resulting dental work :(ReplyDelete
I know what you mean Char...I was just saying to my husband this afternoon that I know I have a really good life but when does all the peace, serenity and bliss begin? Is that too much to ask for?
that is one beautiful sunflower. sorry about your accident and the dental problems.ReplyDelete
Sorry about your tooth, I will be thinking about you in the chair tomorrow. Your blog header is beautiful. I so love it. It is gorgeous. the best one yet. the sunflowers wow. take care, hope you are feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
So sorry you got hurt...the dentist thing is the worst...ick!!! It does seem like when it rains it pours...I say ditto to the others on your new header. So soft...feel better =0)ReplyDelete
Ow, sorry about the emergency dental work.ReplyDelete
The sunflower is gorgeous, however. Lovely color and focuses so sharply on the detail.
Beautiful header and attitude. Just be grateful that you have dental insurance!!! :) And now I can't get that image of Stu's tooth outta my head...lol. I loved that movie.ReplyDelete
i like the way you see the better side of things. and i love your new header and your sunflower photo today. hope the dentist visit turns out fine.ReplyDelete
I love the fact that you are looking for the good in a situation that I am sure would ruin anyone's day. I'm so sorry about your tooth! I hope things go well at the dentist today. Take care!ReplyDelete
Sheesh, things seems a little annoying at the moment. Instant mashed potatoes were my friend after I had a wisdom tooth pulled. Maybe they'll help you too. Be gentle with yourself.ReplyDelete
oh girl. hang in there. so many ups and downs in life!ReplyDelete
p.s. i have a cat with pooping issues. it is kind of maddening, but things could be worse. SIGH.
Oh, dear..! I hope you are on the mend soon! I can't imagine you feel well today, but hopefully tomorrow will be better.ReplyDelete
Sending healing thoughts your way, Char.

sending love and best wishes to you....
kary and teddy
hope all goes well at the dentist.ReplyDelete
thinking of you!
hang in there my friend..sunflowers are a favorite ...i am working backwards...ReplyDelete
Just make lemonade. Always the best policy. And so glad to hear they can save your tooth.
I guess it's easy to see the worst in things so I love how you turned this around... It's easy to dwell on the negative instead of thinking actually is it really as bad as it could be?ReplyDelete
I love this picture!ReplyDelete
So bright and happy. Makes me feel warm.
