Okay, I woke up groggy once again this morning with my now usual Benadryl hangover and we are still in the UK according to Etsy. I tried to get on with the business of the day which included lots of work on a website due to go live tomorrow. I was working furiously to get some of the final edits in place and upload the site to the internet.
Right in the middle of the upload, my cable internet service goes out, again. I have lost count of the thousands of times we have lost the internet service over the years we have been with the only business level provider to our area.
I picture the company as having a headquarters like the picture here. Everything about the service seems to be holding together just about as well as this ramshackle shack which is just barely.
Sigh … At least Shadow has come off his Baytril and is bouncing around and has regained a lot of appetite. He seems to be healthier than he has been in months and wants to get into all kinds of things and places. Tigger is still a concern. Her appetite fluctuates widely day-to-day. She regularly has gas issues, no mistaking that skunky smell. She is on again off again for pain and gas meds and feedings of Critical Care based on her activity, eating and comfort level.
I am hoping tomorrow will be a little less crazy than so many days have been this month.
This has been a rough month and it is only at the half way point. Tigger and Shadow are both being medicated for different problems. Tropical depression Lee came through on Labor Day with multiple tornado warnings. We lost internet for a chunk of time after that which backed my work load up since I run internet based businesses and do web design / development.
The Etsy Rabbits team is putting a push on creating treasuries with team members / rabbit themes to get the word out about International Rabbit Day. I thought I at least had that one down as Saturday the 24th, but Etsy posted it as the 25th. In doing research, it appears that groups pick the 4th Saturday or Sunday of the month. So now there are lots of treasuries planned leading up to and through both days of the now International Rabbit Day Weekend event.
Then business taxes that were extended are now due. Blaine and I both have large work projects going and are operating on very little sleep. Add in the fact it is fall allergy season here and we are coughing, sneezing, and wheezing. What does a good nights sleep feel like? I am not sure anymore.
So I am almost hitting the wall. I say almost, because I am so tired I am not sure there is a wall anymore and I don’t have the energy to try to find it to hit it.
WordPress had suggested a photo challenge this week of worn and for me that just kept coming out as worn out. It has been a long and tiring week of on and off storms rolling through. For us that means powering down computer equipment a lot and then sometimes working late into the night trying to catch up.
When I am worn out, I love nature as a pick me up. This photo is sunshine and blue skies shining down through Georgia pines, the view you get laid out in a lounge chair or hammock. I hope you all had or have a chance today to kick back, relax and just look up at a beautiful sky. So relaxing!
I rounded a curve in the pond and took this picture of the ducks starting off swimming. From this direction, the water has changed to reflecting cool blues, deep greens and charcoals from the sky and trees.
Today, a photo study in water reflections. On May 8th, I shared a photo of napping ducks I had taken at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The pond they are in is round and I took many pictures of them as Blaine and I walked around it.
In just a few minutes, I caught shots as they slept, as they woke up and flapped their wings and then started to swim on the pond. I was snapping away taking pictures of the ducks and not really taking in the reflections and changing colors of the water that were there from the different directions of the shots.
It was amazing to open up the photos full screen size on the computer and see this lovely impressionistic painted landscape showing the blooming spring trees reflected in the water. I will post a couple more photos from that day later on today. One shows the difference to the painted water landscape when one duck begins flapping its wings.
