A smile for Terry



This is the same bird I posted on January 1st from a different angle. Isn't he a cutie pie!

The same bird you saw at the airport? He musta followed you home. heeheehee...

Oliviah said...

I wish! He was soo cute. I posted a picture of him on January 1st. Scroll down and look at His Adorableness. :-)

tsduff said...

WOW! Oliviah I'm so thrilled to see this picture! He is singing his little heart out... fanning his coal black feathers... (wonder where the object of his affections is hiding... :D) What a beauty - you are one awesome woman with a camera.

Oliviah said...

Terry, I just knew you'd love this little fellow. He has certainly got personality. Just like you. ;)

It is so good to see you up and about Oliviah :) I love your pictures.

runnerfrog said...

Your camera abilities are impressive indeed. You feel what moment should be chosen to be perpetuated.

Oliviah said...

runnerfrog, I think that is the nicest compliment I've ever heard about my photography. Thank you. xx

Oliviah said...

Terry, thank you--it's difficult adjusting to these MS medications. It takes a while to figure out which ones are too harsh and need to be cut back and also which medicines need to be added and then figuring out how well my body tolerates the new ones. I was put on two new ones that should help me enormously with the Rebif depression and the Rebif nightmares. They make me sleepy, so it will take a few weeks to adapt to them but then, with a little luck, I should be okay apart from any MS relapses.

tsduff said...

I'm sorry you have to walk through the maze of so many meds. But on the other hand, thank goodness you have found help in any form for your difficulties. Have a wonderful day today (Friday) and try not to overheat in that hot Florida sunshine :)

Oliviah said...

Terry, I was just wondering what today it was, lol! I MUST remember the days of the week now because Mon., Wed., and Fri. I have to give myself those Rebif injections. It is a strange thing indeed to stick a needle in yourself and watch the medicine go in. Sometimes I find it very nerve wracking trying to do this, other times I manage it quite well. I refuse to let myself think about it between injections as much as I can. But when I don't know what day of the week it is it does make me very nervous about the injections until I figure out what day it is, lol!

So .... thank you very much! :-P

tsduff said...

Silly girl - try marking the days on a calendar - I've had to resort to that at times. Doesn't always work, but it helps :)

I showed my Sweetie the picture of the bird in your post: he was amazed by your beautiful photography. I'm surprised every time I see it again.

Okay - happy MONDAY.

Oliviah said...

oh wow. It is Thursday. I have had two doctor appointments this week & that can be very draining but I think it's just adjusting to the new medication. I know I am doing better only I get really disoriented and confused. I see another doctor next doctor next week and maybe she will decide to reduced something. Or maybe I will have adapted to them by them. It will be okay one way or another.

tsduff said...

How's your Monday going Oliviah? Glad it's almost over :)

"In Action" is what I say. I really like this, and just another example of your great eye for things to show us what we can "really" see if we so dare! Good Job You!

Hi Oliviah - just stopping in to wave at you where ever you are, and what ever you are doing. I miss you very much - hope all is okay with you.

Oliviah said...

This month is almost over and look at this little crow, still belting out a song for you.

goatman said...

I still like your fractals.
The best to you.

tsduff said...

Yes, this month, and the next.

Thinking of you today Missy.

tsduff said...

Oliviah - I wish you would come back and say hi. I just want to tell you that the bird pictures you take are among the best photos I've seen on the internet! What ever telephoto lense you have, I want it :)

Hope you had an enjoyable 4th of July xo

Trée said...

Happy Thanksgiving O. Hope all is well with you. I miss you more than you know.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Oliviah, Missing you. I posted a new image on my blog and thought of you when I did. Hope you like it.

Love to you all.

My computer is broken. Using a borrowed laptop at the moment. Wrote a comment pouring out heart but can't figure out how to copy/paste using a laptop (sigh) and wore me out writing it.

The main thought was and is this: I think of you much and regret circumstances that have kept me from consistently posting, being in touch. I want to--I think you are precious, you touch my heart in sweet unique only to you ways, you are funny and all kinds of goofy or quirky cool. Or just..cool.

I need you in all your individual ways, you make life spark.

I despise that which disables me from being there for you as friends should be and which also disables me from receiving these little contacts that can make my day.

Was trying to decide if best to delete blog because I have hurt people through this disability which manifests itself in sudden unexplained absences. Absence equals abandonment, even if you do know full well the condition that causes it. (Those of you who know of my illness.)

But I just can't bring myself to delete it. I can't accept this condition as permanent. It has to be temporary. Right? I want to say. Though no one can answer that one.

What is fair to you? I don't know. What is right for me, I don't know. I do know this. Your world's do not revolve around me and I am not so important that my absence wreaks utter devestation on anyone. I just hate when I hurt anyone. And it has. Some hurt, some anger, some insulted. I dunno.

Laptop time is up. LOL, broke computer isn't helping things either. I guess I really don't know but a couple of you anymore now after all this time anyway and my own loss is the only one that exists in reality, might be what it all boils down to.

hi.. just dropping by here... have a nice day! http://kantahanan.blogspot.com/

Thinking of you O.

tsduff said...

I come here still sometimes, just to see that bird. I think it is the best picture I've ever seen - snapped in a happy moment of perfect timing. It is a frozen moment of joy and freedom - and I am glad you left it there.

I will send you an email my friend. I got yours today.

I have more rocks for you :) xo

goatman said...

I guess life tends to go on intermittently with our communication with others. I recently met a fellow on Facebook who I went to grade school with. Who can tell our connections and when they will.

But I would advise you to leave your blog up. Time may come when you or others may want to see the history of the old posts. I deleted some early posts from my blog once and now regret doing that.
Peace be to you

Your frends miss you OllieOllie )-;

Oliviah,

I read this week about a doctor who found that his wife, who had MS, was one of many who were found to have a constriction or flow limitation in a blood vessel exiting the brain. This led to an increase in iron in the brain and this led to the attack on the nerve sheaths. A simple operation, using a catheter to feed a probe to the constriction and cleaning it out, and possibly inserting a stent to hold the vessel open, CURED her MS! WOW. Please look into this research, ask your doctor to look into it. We miss you and think of you and pray for your health.

Honey - I have never felt so honored, as when I see that pretty bird singing it's heart out, with you behind the lens... love you

Vintage and Cake said...

I miss blogs like this, the old skool blogs, well I hope you return to it one day :(

tsduff said...

Where are you hon? I think of you often xoxo

Oliviah said...

I.have missed you all. I will be back . I've moved twice in this time and my PC and laptop are a mess. Am texting from my phone. There are comments people sent that aren't posted and so sorry about that. I can't figure out how to access them from my phone. This may take a while, but it has just been way too long.
