Foto Friday and I Need to Take Some Time Off

I'm sure you will see more of this tree in the coming months. Now that it has lost it's leaves, I think it is very photogenic. I decided to try this one in black and white and I love the way the sun makes an almost perfect star as it shines through branches.

I woke up sick yesterday, with a temperature and feeling out of sorts. I managed to stay up and enjoy my husband's dinner, which he had spent all day cooking. He smoked a leg of lamb, some beef, and the best of all a large chunk of halibut with red onions, garlic, and green peppers all smoked together. It was heavenly. Anyway, if I'm not better by Monday, I will see the doctor. The one I don't like, so I hope I'm OK by then.

But we did see the doctor we all love ~ Samson's vet ~ on Tuesday. He took Samson off the steroids completely to see how he will do. He is sure Samson will have a relapse and if he does I still have pills here to give him until we can see the vet. The vet also reduced the eye drops to once a day. We have to check his eyes carefully every day because that's where the symptoms will show up. Samson's acting like his old self already. Much more playful and happy, which is so great. 

So I will stay in bed and just rest for a few days. I should be back to blogging and reading your posts next week sometime. 

Have a nice weekend!


  1. Hi Inger - I hope you feel better soon ... glad you were able to enjoy hubby's dinner first though ...

    Sounds like Samson is settling with his diagnosis ... and he needs fewer meds ...

    Look after yourselves - cheers Hilary

  2. Get well soon. I had that HORRIBLE bronchitis for nearly 10 weeks. I'm just now getting my strength and energy back! Lots and LOTS of rest!

  3. Rest and get better. Take it easy. Relax.

    I also love your picture of the tree. It would make a great photo for decoration!

  4. hope you get better by Monday to avoid the doc you don't love.... and hope Samson does not have a relapse and does not need those pills again. hugs to all of you and see you when you feel better. the tree is gorgeous and deserving of many photo shoots

  5. glad you will rest. i hope you feel as spunky as samson does, soon. :)

  6. Oh Inger, I am so sorry to hear that you are sick! Will be praying for a speedy recovery!

    Gracie sends love to Samson and this message: "YAY! Glad you're doing well beautiful Boy! Take care of your mommy now, ya hear. I know, I know... they are nags sometimes but they love us and care for us. It comes our time to take care of them. Now don't tell anyone I said that. It will ruin my reputation!"

  7. It's that time of year, Inger. Start upping your intake of vitamin C this time of year, eat frozen berries or oranges. It takes rest to heal. Hope you feel better soon.

    That dinner sounds great - I can eat lamb and love halibut, but we don't eat beef any more unless we go out.

    Glad Samson's better. Good luck with his meds. Take care of yourself. BTW - I love B&W photos and posted some on my 21st century blog. That tree-star is quite nice!

  10. I hope you're well soon. I'm so glad Samson is better.


  11. Take care of yourself IngerDoodle...being sick is a pain(is that a pun?) Sorry! Now Samson can take of you!!!! Perfect timing!'s about hubby's food...oh my I am salivating...any leftovers?

  12. Hope you feel better soon, Inger. Take it easy.

  13. Hope this passes quickly!

  14. So sorry you're not well and I hope you're better soon. The tree/star picture is spectacular -- as is your new header. And your husband's cooking -- wow!

  15. Love that shot and the surprise star.
    So very sorry you are feeling puny and hope it doesn't require a doctor's visit. However an early intervention could shorten condition. Great news about Samson. I hate steroids but know sometimes they are necessary.Hopefully he will do well with out them.
    Be well soon.

  16. Krya på dig!!! Hoppas du kan vila och ha det lugnt nu. Jättefin bild på trädet....

  17. Oh Inger please please take care of yourself. It is great that your husband is a good cook.
    Happy news about Samson. Hug B

  18. Hi Inger, I am sorry you're not feeling well and I hope you're better very soon!

    Have a nice Sunday!

  19. What a beautiful black and white.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, and I hope you feel better soon. I'm glad your doggy is getting his health back. Hopefully, a relapse won't occur too soon.

  20. Be forgive me for failing to leave this notification much earlier. For I usually leave them immediately after the edition is up, but I just plain forgot to do so this time. Anyway, "Desert Canyon Living" has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week, and I hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.

  21. Dear Inger, the important thing is that you take care of yourself and remain gracious to yourself and to the messages your body is giving you. Peace.


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
