Silly Site o' the Day

Have I mentioned I pretty much put the photo shoot scheduling to bed for another month? I just need to send out the photos when I get them, and code one more invoice when I get it, and it's going to be a fairly quiet week so I don't anticipate any more issues. Speaking of photos, ever notice how Instagram has a sort of sameness to it? That's one reason I'm not into it, I guess. Also, it's for people at least a generation and a half younger than me.

Silly Site o' the Day

It was another lovely day outside, but way too bright for the way my eyes have been, so I hid them inside to make sure I'm ready for the work week ahead. Got lots of comics reading done, tried not to fall asleep (had a bit of insomnia last night), and zoned out watching these zoetrope-type GIFs much longer than I should have.

Silly Site o' the Day

Eyes still bleary, even though I slept for much of the afternoon, so I was pleased the eye compress arrived. It's lovely but it's going to take a few more uses before I really feel its effects, I think. Meanwhile it was a good day for getting domestic stuff done (Woolite wash, catching up on my glucose charts, sorting laundry, grocery shopping) so I feel the day wasn't a total waste, even though my eyes aren't up to more than driving to and from the supermarket. This is certainly keeping me off social media, past and present (via BoingBoing).

Silly Site o' the Day

The eyes feel a bit better today,I haven't even used the drops more than once. Spent too much time playing the new (as I call it) Harry Potter Pokemon GO game, and the "special photo day" at the office went off without... well, let's just say without any further hitches once 8:30 rolled around. This is a big weight off my shoulders, as it represents the final stage of dealing with the last scheduler's massive waitlist. After today maybe a few dozen people have yet to be scheduled or rescheduled, which is par for the course. Now all I have to worry about are those seminars I've scheduled to present in the next couple of months. But never mind, it's Friday Cat Blogging day, and the longest friggin' day of the year to boot, so let's celebrate by throwing the kittens out to the eager bridesmaids!

Silly Site o' the Day

So my eyes have been a bit bleary for a day or so, and I happened to have my semi-annual ophthalmologist appointment today. Turns out they're a bit dry, and there's a small scratch on the left cornea which will undoubtedly take its time to heal, so I have some eye drops and have ordered a hot compress to stop the inflammation of my lids, and there you go. True to form, the rain broke and it was bright sunshine when I stepped out of the doctor's office, so I'm glad I had my wraparound sunglasses. We ate at a Greek place a few doors down, absolutely delicious food. Maybe next time I'll be able to see it better. I mean, I couldn't have seen this:

Silly Site o' the Day

A very busy day, what with making sure a major conference and the monthly photo shoot day both got off without a hitch, preparing for a special photo shoot encore visit on Friday, taking a course, scheduling meetings and seminars (two of which I'll be leading)... I'm exhausted just thinking about it. But I have a brand-new solid state hard drive on my home computer thanks to Robin, and with luck I can finally upgrade to whatever the latest iOS is called. Maybe it's Cowboy Boot Sandals, I don't remember.

Silly Site o' the Day

So yeah, rain. But the baseball games went on, and I was soothed by the world's largest penny pyramid. As, I hope, will you be:

Silly Site o' the Day

I can feel a change in the atmosphere, and it's affecting just about all my muscles. not sure what to do about it, but pretty sure handerpants aren't the answer. To, you know, anything.

Silly Site o' the Day

A lovely ending to a great weekend. Our friend Tom was stopping by on his way from NJ to CT, which gave us impetus to clean house a bit. The minute the vacuuming was done we could both breathe much more easily; must have been a lot of allergens settled in the carpet! Both NY baseball teams won for a change, and I'm more than ready to go back to work for what's sure to be a busy week, what with two photo shoots in the same week. I am assured none of the photo subjects will be wearing track suits like these Russians.

Silly Site o' the Day

Another beautiful day, and we took advantage of the terrific weather to visit Mom, do our (and her) grocery shopping, and get my shaggy mane somewhat shorn. Meanwhile, Zed's been a fierce hunter of various tiny rodents and large bugs, so I have decided to keep petting him rather than photoshopping him into food.
