More To Come..........
Thanks for the uupdate on Betty and I hope my message here will cheer you up Buddy :D
So sorry to hear about your friend Betty! What a spirit eh?
Your images are beautiful Naomi. How you get such clear close-ups is truly beyond me! *heehee*
Just read about Betty G.'s tumble, then your up date on her recovery status. I certainly do send positive thoughts her way!
Given the discipline I know is needed to succeed in the professional life shared by her, you and many of your friends, I would expect each of you are well equipped to incorporate activities into your lives that maximize therapy gains, if ever needed, such as with Betty G.'s P.T. The bottom line is "doing the work."
I might add a reminder of what we all know, but sometimes overlook, that as we get older we don't always "bounce back" from ailments, injuries as quickly as when we're younger. Please tell her to be patient, especially if she experiences irregular gains, or thinks they're too slow. I've found "patience" is important -- such an easy word to recommend but can be very hard to practice.
I think coping with unwelcome circumstances affecting those about whom we care can be emotionally draining. We've all probably long since learned that fact, but such life events never become easier. I do hope you will be perking up soon, that you and friends will be gathering with Betty G. in celebratory mode once she is up and about again.
Your photos continue to be spectacular, these flower colors seem delicately soothing.
Blogs are a wonder: Strangers from across the county or the planet become a part of your world. I am cheered to hear Betty is doing well and sad that you are under the weather. Please feel better soon. And please know how much we appreciate you and your posts.
Catherine Deneuve has always been one of those actresses who send me over the edge, swooning, since I was junior high. Yikes, what a beauty. One of my favorites of her many roles was in Indochine, a marvelous, marvelous film.
Sorry you're not feeling chipper. I hope things get better.
I'm so sorry you're not feeling up to par. Also, thank you for the update on Betty.
It's good to know Betty is on her way to a full recovery. She seems to have a spirit that doesn't quit so that certainly helps speed things along. Wishing her all the best.
Btw, these flowers are beautiful. I need to find an orchid I can't kill. :)
PS - Thanks for referring the Basquiat film. I can't get enough of him now.
Hi Naomi, I just sent an e-mail to you but just now I am glad to hear that Betty G will be going home in a few weeks! It's great!
I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well... I hope you will be fine soon.
Love those flowers and petals photos. Just wonderful!
Naomi, I am sorry you're not feeling well and hope you'll be good as new soon.
I bought a frame for Betty's photo today; it will go on the wall in Mr. kenju's office and he will gaze upon her lovely face often, I am sure. Please tell her we are glad to know that she is in rehab and doing well.
Glad she's doing better...and hoping you'll feel better this is not the time of year to not be doing well.
So many obligations...your photos are beautiful...I love the colors you selected...

Hi Naomi--sorry to hear you're under the weather, but the weather has been k-k-k-kold lately, so hopefully you're under the covers with Sweetie.(lol).
Tonite is the eve of St. "Nickolash", the wonderful old fellow who brings toys and tidbits (and lots of choclate, much of it wrapped in tinfoil) to good girls and boys, but LUMPS OF COAL to the naughty. Now, I know that your stocking will be filled with all the best and most beautiful things.....but hmmm I wonder (lol) what Mr. Woods will find ???
the fat lady
I don'y know how you do it, but you take the most wonderful and beautiful pictures! Hah!!! I don't think you need a new camera!
Love you, Audrey
You take some of the prettiest photos of flowers that I've ever seen.
Glad to hear the Betty is on the mend.
I hope that you get to feeling better! :)
I'm so glad Betty is better. Please pass on my good wishes. And keep some for yourself. The photos of the flowers are beautiful. We are expecting snow and then the ever popular wintery mix to accompany the winter temperatures. The flowers warm my heart.
Fantastic flowers!!!! Glad to hear Betty is recovering so well!!!
Hope you feel better soon and that Betty is home in time for the holidays.
Thanks for such beautiful and sunny shots!!
Beautiful Naomi - much nicer than Christmas decorations and just what one needs to lighten and brighten one's spirits. Good news about Betty and I hope you are feeling better soon. I'm sending lots of warm hugs.xoxoxoxoxox
as always: beautiful photo's Naomi.
oh goodness, I am sorry to hear you aren't feeling real well. I wish I could say I didn't know how that felt! lol
good, good news on Betty!! What an amazing lady she is! we are all of an age where broken bones just don't mend that fast or well so she is doing something awfully right!!! I hope she will be home soon!
Good Morn Naomi, Thank You for sharing the flowers, yellow roses are one of my favorite's. How this finds you feeling better. Have had some cardiac procedures done recelently, myself, had broncidus, a cold and a tooth go bad all in less than a month. As well as this time of year is always a little sad for me at this point in my life, but am back to work, think if just keep on moving all will be well, its when one stops and starts thinking too much, things really go down hill. So once again thank you for the flowers. Pat from NY.
Those beautiful photographs were the perfect antidote to the cold and icy drive to work this morning. Thanks for spreading the sunshine to dreary Indiana!
Your post brought tears to my eyes for the mix of beauty, bittersweet quiet, and change. I do hope you feel your best soon, Naomi. Betty too!!
I'm sorry you haven't been feeling too well recently. Take good care of yourself.
The colours on these photos are incredible. Isn't nature amazing?
Hope you are on top of the weather now. Don't like you being under it.
Great news about Betty. Know she will be happy to be home again.
Loved your pictures for eye enjoyment. Be well soon.
I'm not in the right mood to comment as usual.
You'll understand when reading my COT this week.
Hi Naomi! I'm glad to hear Betty is doing well. She strikes me as the sort that will have a good attitude and usually they do okay with things like this. I will keep her in my prayers.
I hope you get to feeling better to!!
Loved all your pretty flower photos!!
Love and hugs,
I clicked on your yellow flower to make it larger and it filled up the computer screen. Then I proceeded to sit there and gaze at it for a few minutes, breathing deeply and trying to let all the stress in me flow out. I called M over to look at it. I said, "wouldn't this make a great screensaver for the computer?" She agreed. "It's all happy and cheery." Then I said, "this would be an awesome painting too." We both continued to gaze at the flower and then snapped back to reality. Thank you for those few minutes in my day that were stress free. I'm trying to practice letting go of stress instead of bottling it all up inside. We all have daily stresses and work stresses and being an attorney, I also take on all the stresses of my clients, so I really do need to remember to let it go at the end of the day and quit carrying around the weight of the world. Your flower helped me do that. Thank you.
Such lovely colours!
Naomi.... I have been so crazy busy that I hadn't visited your blog in a while. I'm so sorry Betty has had to endure hip surgery and all that entails. We were there when my father in law fell and broke his hip. It is a frightening and delicate process to go through. May she continue to exude that wonderful spunk and spirit she has.
I'm sure its just eating you up that you can't visit her!! .... and you're not feeling well on top of that. Take it easy...... keep taking those BEAUTIFUL photos and sharing them.
I swear. I think God made flowers so we would stop and reflect on them as gifts and blessings. Nothing lifts my spirits than the beauty of a bloom.
Glad to hear about Betty. Enjoy your movies and get well soon. We all pull for you.
I've tagged you for a Circle of Friends Award. Stop by my blog.
Glad to hear she is doing well. and you my friend get better yourself. I broke my left foot today cleaning house.. I know stupid right.. But it happens.. I am in loads of pain until my dear hubby comes home to get my prescription filled..
So beautiful! That top photo is just ezquisite.
Gorgeous, splendid flowers! Those colors knock me out!!!
I'm so happy to read that Betty is recovering well and getting physical therapy. I pray she continues to improve and get stronger. I know this was very hard on her, and I know you were very concerned about her.
I always take your movie recommendations seriously since I highly value your opinion. I will look out for A Christmas Tale.
