Some days I just can't stop looking at the sky.

Spent most of the day on the porch reading...
...and watching for rain which never came.
Karma parks herself between my feet on the ottoman. When I took these pictures she was giving herself a long, leisurely bath.
I need a pillow and my lap desk with the wooden top to hold books for me as I can't hold them with the bum arm.
Karma slept at lot while I read, of course.
I am halfway through Pillars! Had a terrible time stopping for breaks. Talk about a test of patience--hehe!
I was going to make a quick trip over to Dagan and Leah's yesterday but when I went out the car was dead again. :( I have figured out why now, tho. I haven't driven cars where you can remove the key if it is in the wrong spot. You can remove the key in this one while it is on accessory!! Others may have known this, but I didn't have a clue and they are right next to each other. I didn't think it was even possible, so it never crossed my mind. If the key came out I thought it was where it should be, you know? I know it's an older car--what is it a 92 or 93? But I've had older cars than this one and you couldn't do that. ??? Oh well--Leah will come over and jump her again today or tomorrow. But at least now it won't happen again!! Duh! Feel pretty dumb--but the mystery is solved.
Tomorrow is papermaking day and we plan on doing a Sacred Circle after dinner. :)
Meanwhile--another gorgeous day in the 70's to read on the porch! So very nice to have the place open and all the fresh air again--ahhh!! :):)
I will be reading a bit less of Pillars, tho, very soon. Dexter season three is coming from Netflix!! In fact, I think the first two DVDs are supposed to arrive today and another one tomorrow. I'll be alternating between modern evil and Medieval evil--ROFL! I hope the horrible priests and earls get theirs in the end the way Dexter takes care of his mass murderers (so satisfying in such a sick way). *sinister chuckling and hand rubbing*

I'm glad you got your car trouble straightened out. I had a car with a parking light switch over the top of the steering wheel - so if I placed my hands like I was praying, I would accidently bump it.

...and the next morning I would need a jump too. Took me a while to stop putting my hands up there.

Oh.. by the way, I've a friend that has a cat named Dharma - so thats why I typo'ed Karma's name yesterday.

They even look somewhat similar... :) (click to see here)

Beautiful sky pics, Rita. I've always thought the key had to be in OFF mode before you could remove it from the ignition....go figure!

I have an award for you over at my blog.

Rita said...

Iggy! An award! Awesome! Thanks so much!! :):)

I had to giggle--could just picture you setting off the parking lights. Sounds just like something I would do. :)

I looked at Dharma and they really do have a similar look--patchy colors and very "healthy" as you would say--hehe! Karma doesn't care how you spell her name, BTW. ;)

Serena--the skies up here have been very compelling for a couple of days. Not just the blanketed greyness or the typical white fluffies against a blue sky, you know? More dramatic. :)

So did I! Learn something new every day, right? hehe!
