Keeping It Simple

Pogo (our 14 year old dog) was up sick most of last night, so we're kind of tired today.  Well, not kind of, definitely, positively tired.  So we're following the KISS theory (keep it simple silly...some say stupid, but I'll say silly) today.  Don't get me wrong, you know we got some things done, but there was a lot of yawning going on!

I was mesmerized all morning by the icicles that lined the edge of the roof, watching them slowly melt as the temperature rose and the sun shone upon them. They morphed into some really interesting shapes and sparkled with the sun's reflection. They looked like molten glass...I shall call them krystcicles (crystals + icicle)! I took lots of pictures, but in keeping with my simple theme, I'm sharing two of my favorites...

Poor Pogo, he's feeling a little better, but he hasn't wanted to eat anything all day and he's been sleeping and relatively motionless.  We did call the vet this morning, who said to stop giving him the antibiotics (they were for his aural hematoma, click on the link to read more about that) because that could be upsetting his stomach.  We keep monitoring him, but he clearly still doesn't feel well. 

Kudos to all the bloggers who participate on the ABCWednesday site...today highlights "K", and there are some pretty good entries...I found "K" to be kind of challenging...click on the link if you'd like read more. 

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
