my Tinka

I am not having much luck lately, the flu is still hanging on, not much , but annoying little cough continues.

Then last week – well five days ago, while sitting at morning coffee, i moved a bit and, snap, something went wrong, I bent like a jackknife, I could not straighten my back. Well I am in a upright position now, but sitting in a chair is impossible and walking is pain. So having said that, I have no taken many photos this week.

I did take photos of Tinka one day…

She has such nice green eyes

Tinka is the sweetest little cat.

Sweet Tinka

I had a plan to get all my trip posts done last week, but flu got in the way. It totally left me tired, sneezing, coughing and drinking tea, that’s is what I have been doing past week and watching television. I took a lot of effort to get the previous post done.

I had comfort while laying in bed, Tinka kept me company.

Sweet little Tinka

My cat Tinka captured in black and white. She is so pretty!

We have had a slight setback in Spring, the forecast is predicting snow to some areas of Finland, here we just have cool temperature and rain to look forward to. Well, it is what it is. When the warm weather returns we can enjoyed it even more. You really learn to appreciate nice weather when you don’t have year round.

Tinka was longingly looking out of the window, for some reason the photo looks like it was a drawing… must be the old glass we have in the windows and that I took the photo at dusk. Veikka was equally disappointed for not being able to be outside during the daytime.

Today’s thought

Do you know the feeling when you are dreaming and find yourself thinking, I’ve seen this one before?

Well, last night I had two reruns. They seemed to go on and on…it felt like I dreamt all night and nothing new was on. Well that is my life at the moment anyways, like so many of us are experiencing. Same, same, but different. Except not 🙂 Play the blues

I should take it like Tinka, lay down and relax. Yesterday I did. I usually do not nap, hardly ever, yesterday my eyelids were so heavy I had to give in. One hour in the afternoon. This is what it has come to. Napping. I felt like Tinka below, this is what’s it’s come to.

Veikka ignored my dilemma, he just slept.
