everyday is something new, or something discovered… maybe it’s not new – maybe it’s been such a slow gradual thing that it went unnoticed….

yesterday i was pouring myself a cup o java… coffee cup in left hand, pot in right hand… the beast decided that mid-pour was a good time to jerk my right arm around a bit… and the result? steaming hot java all over my left hand…

except it didn’t feel hot… maybe a bit luke warm… that was all…

thankfully, i saw it as it happened… i was actually paying attention to what i was doing while i was doing it

and thankfully i was standing right next to the sink… which only has cold running water… the district doesn’t believe in hot running water i don’t think….

so i immediately put my hand under the cold running water hoping to stop any flesh from burning that i couldn’t feel…. i have a few little red marks but nothing serious…

scary though… pain is a good thing… it let’s us know when we need to stop doing something – danger!   and without that pain sensation… well, i can see a future of mishaps…eek!

i’ve been playing around with some photos that i took using my cell phone… my friend has been using her influence to get me on the more technical side of things but alas, i’m more artsy fartsy – we mesh well i think… we have opposite ideas about things but that balances our ideas and thoughts well… she is a great photog and extremely smart about all the techie stuff and i’m learning a great deal from her… i don’t think she  really believes me, but i am paying attention and using what she tells me… and then modifying it to make it all artsy fartsy….. gotta give her something to bag on me about ha ( and it’s all in good fun.. that’s what makes it all so great!)

so anyway, here’s a few of the things i did last night and this morning… nothing special or spectacular… but maybe a surprise or two in there somewhere

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Love those photos. The golden light streaming through is a joy.

    Re the beast: A year ago I was in hospital, as a day patient having chemo to reduce my symptoms (which worked really well for a little while). The nurses put a warm wet towel on my wrist to bring up the vein to make inserting drugs easier. It was a bit hotter than I liked – but everything is hotter than I like, so I left it there. When they removed it they discovered it was in fact a HOT wet towel and I had a large blister. Pain is indeed our friend. I had known I have reduced sensitivity in my feet, but didn’t know it had spread to my arms.

    • sorta leaves me uneasy to realize that i’m not feeling things as i should… and it’s so gradual that i didn’t even notice the change… eh guess that’s how it goes….

      i can’t believe the nurse put a towel hot enough to cause blisters on your skin!!!

      • The poor nurse was running from patient to patient. For hygiene reasons she was required to use tongs on the towel which I guess is how it happened. She didn’t touch it so didn’t know it was so hot, and I couldn’t feel it. As a result their procedures have now changed. It was a bloody big blister too. And, as I said, I had no idea that I have reduced sensitivity in my hands and arms. I think it is really sucky that a person can have pain and reduced sensitivity simultaneously.

  2. We just never know when the beast will rear. Glad it’s only a few marks.
    I like your ArtieFart. The dead leaves an eyeballs made me smile 😉

  3. I realize that pain is a good thing but it hurts….glad you were ok though. I like these pics….the light does stream through the trees

    • the light was so pretty coming through the trees this morning… after several days of rain and gloom is quite beautiful

      i hate pain, but i suppose i’m thankful that i can feel it sort of … ugh

  4. I like artsy fartsy, being an art fart myself…hahaha. Some interesting effects with that phone! Love the eyeballs!

    • some of it was phone and some of it was that picnik photo editing stuff on google… i have fun trying all the different effects and the eyeballs are just twisted enough to suit me ha!
