Things have been quiet at my end for the last 3 months because I’ve been pretty sick. My time has been taken up with medical appointments, tests, referrals and just trying to survive. I’ve spent a lot of time in bed, feeling awful. That’s not my normal-I am usually quite busy and like it that way.
To try and keep myself entertained I’ve been falling back on photography, which I enjoy. I have a DSLR camera, but it’s too heavy to lug around, especially when I’m not feeling well and seeing as my “outings” are simply to walk my dog, my iPhone has been my go-to. Nothing wrong with an iPhone camera-it does just fine, as you can see.
Being home more has meant my best friend Indiana Jones has been keeping me company. He’s a good pal to nap with. I did manage to get up to the lake early one morning before it got too hot and manage to capture this half out of frame shot of him with his water Kong, which I actually really like.
It’s also meant slowing down and noticing the small details around me like the lichen and moss on the bark of a tree in the park near our home and the secret apple tree I found by accident. I am now watching these apples and plan to pick some when they are big enough!
The Olympics are now on, followed by the Paralympics. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge fan of the Games. I’ve been watching on my iPad and cheering for Team Canada. Team Canada is made up of 60% women athletes! Our ladies have been having huge success and we’re only on day 3! I am watching women’s footie (soccer) and women’s 7’s rugby obsessively. GO CANADA!!
So that’s pretty much been my summer in a nutshell. I am keeping this short because my vision is blurry and my hands are not typing as well as they usually do. I am waiting for treatment, which I am hoping to have booked some time in the next week or so. I am more than ready to get my life back.
