It’s been a very hard week in our neck of the woods. The week started out fine, like any other, and then life hit us with a wholly unexpected curveball. And now we grieve the loss of our sweet kitty, Tails. I’m still just shocked, and of course, terribly sad, too. In a time when the world feels like it’s been knocked off its axis, I’m grateful for friends who’ve reached out, for hugs, for family, and for photography. Taking photos, learning about editing, leaning into my camera… those have been a support too, something to fill the space where words cannot be found.
Here are this week’s photos…
029 | Mon, Jan 29 ~ After such a somber intro, I feel a little silly posting Monday’s photo, but here it is: Gru! Homer and I built an early birthday present of his from his Auntie Maria and Abuela. It’s like Lego, but it’s MegaConstrux, and this one is Minion themed. It was a lot of fun to put together with Homer.
032 | Thurs, Feb 1 ~ Then Wednesday night I noticed Tails just didn’t seem himself. Thursday afternoon we went to the vet, who sent us to the emergency vet, then we got the terrible news that he had advanced Lymphoma, and even with treatment, wasn’t given much time at all. So even though it is always a heartbreaking decision to make, we decided to let him go. This is our last photo with him.
034 | Sat, Feb 3 ~ Saturday, Homer and I headed Mom’s place and met up with Garth, Cinnamon and Allister. We were there to celebrate Mom’s birthday! I am happy I got this photo of Mom with her sweet dog, Layla.
And, that’s all I’ve got for now. Be well, everyone! ❤
