Photojournal April 16 – 20

April 16: Fish are hard to photograph, but here are two of the fish who live in my room – Hope III (female Betta) and Tuberosity (the cory cat, aka Tubby).  I had to do a major cleaning of my fish tank because I noticed I had Planaria Worms, a non-parasitic worm that lives in fish tanks and feeds off the food remains.
April 17: Another part of the big cleaning project, my dad built new shelves in my closet.  I’ve been wanting these for a long time, so I’m pretty excited about them!
April 18: I had a bit of an accident falling down the steps out our back door.  Hurt my ankle which swelled up quite nicely.


April 19: Went to the doctor for an x-ray today since the foot was still very swollen and painful, turns out that it was just a sprain, no breaks.  But it is still very painful and I’ll be in a walker boot for a week at least.

April 20: This is a summary of my day, sleeping, reading, watching House, all with my foot propped up to reduce swelling and Tyler and Maigee looking on to be sure I am doing okay.

Photojournal April 10 – 15

April 10: Today was a sad day because Ike passed away; so, I will share one last shot of my little Ike.

April 11: Ike’s brother came to live with us, so here is a shot of the two of us together.  He was enjoying a nice nap, but when I grabbed the camera I woke him up and he decided to take a little stretch.


April 12: I’m undertaking a major cleaning project, today’s project was to tackle the windows, which surprisingly are supposed to be white and not grey-ish with black mold spots.  Above is before cleaning one and after the other was finished.
April 13: Daisy and Tyler hung out with me while I did some things on the computer, they were wrestling which soon went into a cleaning session.
April 14: After all the time that Tyler has spent inside, Roxie decided it was her turn, so she spent a few hours “helping” me continue my cleaning project.  Her “help” was to supervise while laying on my bed.
April 15: Maigee decided that hiding under the porch was a great idea, which would have been fine if it hadn’t been for the 50′ rope attached to her that didn’t maneuver under the deck quite so well.  After I pulled off her harness, I still had to release her harness and the rope which were just out of reach.  Laying on my stomach as far under the deck as I could get trying to reach the harness, the kittens decided that this was some great new game and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Photos of Enjoyment – April 6-9

April 6: After my mom bought a pie crust, disappointing my newly found skills at pie crust making, I decided to make a crust and turn it into ickles.  Ickles are a pie crust rolled into a rectangle, covered with a layer of brown sugar and cinnamon, rolled up, and baked.
April 7: After experiencing digestive issues over the past few months, my GI decided to schedule me for a EGD (upper GI scope).  I asked for a copy of my images to share, the results showed that I have a hiatal hernia which is causing the reflux.  This is actually good news because it means that I don’t have an ulcer!


April 8: I was getting potatoes ready for mashed potatoes for Easter, and I came across this “guy.”  I decided “he” looked like a little guy with a bad hair day!


April 9: While taking pictures of Maigee wearing her new bandanna from Custom Canines and she gave me this silly shot by yawning during the picture.  I can’t decide if she looks ferocious or like she is laughing.

I went out and took some pictures using various settings with my camera of the Supermoon last night.  Maigee volunteered as my willing assistant .
