Autumn ContemplationThursday, September 19, 2013
|Color Autumn by Tom|
Life's been quite a blessing, I think. I am still breathing and my limbs are functional. My spine hasn't failed me. My mind is clear. Work has been enjoyable. My cats are adorable and healthy. My family's well and content. The neighborhood is calm. Some bushes may need to be trimmed on the side of a neighbor's yard but that's not my problem is it?
There's some funky fertilizer scent floating in the air late after hours that can be wholly blamed on another neighbor's enthusiastic yet sporadic gardening but that can be survived as long as I just stay within the concrete walls. Better this than to retaliate by dumping my kitties' excrement on their front gate as that'd be petty. Who likes a petty Betty? Nobody.
The monsoonic rain did pour for a whole week before that had me freezing to my bones. I was about to file a complaint to the weather control department, but thank goodness, the sun got back to its usual routine. Before long, I'd started perspiring and cursing the humidity. So, all's well over here with me.
Anyway, enough of me blabbering over nothing, let's see some pictures now, shall we?
Starting with the animals I stalked at the local pet place:
An adorable pug that my sister's chronically obsessed with. I admit that my heart's been taken by this hyperactive cutie. With no experience whatsoever in doggy care taking, we've resorted to fantasizing and dreaming about having a pug to play with our kitties.
The birds in their enclosure. I'll never get used to the idea of birds living in a small contained space. They've got wings so they should be kept in a space that allows more than just short bouts of wing-flapping.
Seven early birds gossiping about the human animals gawking at them.
Something about this reptile's expression tickled me, at first. Then, not so much because it made me think of the lurky Sméagol from Lord of the Rings.
Snake on a snake. Interesting to look at but not to be kept as a pet unless that's your thing.
Another legless creature wearing his party stripes thinking of ways to escape the four-wall barricade and slither into the sunset.
My cousin's shy kitty that's warmed up to me. A pretty little fatty, this one is!
Bed take-over by feline. Aiden's all curled up in his cozy position.
Footography in session! Buying shoe online in the wrong size had made me temporarily bitter. Shoe shopping's no fun online and in real life. But I've got a pair that I totally love now:
I adore the tiny vintage-y cutout and the rusty brown color promises that it'll go with any outfit! Also, there's a charming round metal faux buckle-up feature on the side that isn't clearly seen here but had got me at hello.
A human that's missing the upper half of her face.
Sis rocking the plaid shirt, being an early bird. Time freezes in that office of hers. Not sure why my human pics are cropped-style, though.
Mom's sneaking a pose for the camera.
Can't end the post without some food imagery. Chicken satay's always a yummy option anytime anyone's hungry.
Coffee time is the best time.
Alright, that's all for now. Happy Mid-Autumn!
And to end this post with something ridiculously random, I'd like to confess that I love Ben Haggerty. Not in a creepy stalker sense, of course. His lyrics got to me first. And then his hyperactive jumping on the stage.
A song of his that's an all-time favorite:
Neon Cathedral - Macklemore
