These are the two things [other than Riley, of course] that are by my side most all of the time these days. I stopped drinking pop years ago and can no longer have anything with artificial sweeteners, so the discovery of lemonade in a can has been a welcome alternative to boring old water.
The funny thing about this photo is that I panic having the two things sit so close to each other. I have this fear of spilling liquid on Padma... and since seeing a photo on The Pioneer Woman’s website of her iPad’s shattered screen after her son dropped it, I am even more freakishly careful than before. Padma is quite nearly as well cared for as the dog!

This was the day I busted out the canvas and tried my hand at painting again. It definitely brought back the itch to create... I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a few more canvases in our YOU:create endeavors. :)

“Hey, lady. Over here. If you expect people to take me seriously as the blog dog, you might think about giving me a haircut sooner rather than later. People like a shaggy mascot about as much as they like a skinny Santa.”

My nebulizer is proving to be almost as constant of a companion as Padma and Riley. I refuse to give it a name, however. While it is as essential to my life as the other two [perhaps more so since breathing is about as essential as you can get], I don’t enjoy it nearly as much, so it shall remain a nameless machine. :)

Along with the nebulizer, my inhaler is also always within reach these days. When illness hits my lungs it’s always difficult for my body to bounce back, but even I have to admit the past couple months of not breathing or talking well has seemed exceptionally long. I’m beginning to resign myself to this being a long-term, ongoing issue. That’s a hard pill for me to swallow, but sometimes just accepting something like this as a part of a new normal makes it easier for me to deal with and adapt to it.
But I won’t be upset if my body proves me wrong and starts breathing easier again. As a matter of fact, this is one of those times I’d be thrilled to be wrong. :)

I told Riley that Candy was coming to visit after work. And then he stayed like this for the next hour. Waiting.
He likes her a little bit.

When she came, she brought us one of the most delicious watermelons I’ve ever eaten. I took this photo on Thursday because I knew by Friday it would be gone.
I like her a little bit, too. :)
