Blogging is sometimes painful

It's been a slow day in Empire. I did take Jilda early this morning to be jabbed by a bunch of needles by Dr. Zhao. It seems that acupuncture is helping with many of the inner ear issues she has. 

I dropped her off at the office and then headed to a nearby Starbucks to sip coffee and work on my column. When I got back an hour later to collect her, she looked like she'd knocked back a few stiff drinks while I was gone. She also looks a little taller.  A good acupuncturist can do that for you.

Yesterday while we walked, I saw a new lily in the woods by the walking path. I was wearing shorts and blackberry thorns racked my legs and I navigated over close enough to snap a picture.

Blogging is sometimes painful.


  1. What a stunner. It looks like an oriental lilium to me.

  2. Oh I’m glad the acupuncturist is helping her. I just have a constant ringing in my ears but no dizziness or imbalance and, for that, I am thankful. Despite the pain you received by walking to get the shot, it is a lovely picture.

  3. The idea of acupuncture make me shake. The scratches from the blackberries will keep you awake tonight.

  4. Hello from Idaho. Stop in from Elephant Child, It been a while since I been into a starbucks. Hope you find the time to stop in for a cup of coffee.
    Coffee is on

  5. I cringe at the thought of acupuncture but I’m glad it’s helping her.
    I know how the blackberry pricks can feel but getting that perfect shot takes that kind of dedication sometimes.

  6. Blogging can be repetitive at times and that's one of the reasons I don't post very often. I have to make myself do it sometimes. Everything I do is so repetitive but when we stop, it's hard to get going again, like exercise.
    I've got my nose to the ground all day weeding and digging when the sun is shining and I rarely take the time to take photos. I'm still dealing with the flood cleanup in the yard.

    I think I'll go right now and take a few pictures for this evening blog post. I hope Jilda will be healed of her vertigo.
    Hugs, Julia

  7. Nice picture, thanks for taking one for the team.

  8. Blackberry briars, one of the dangers of living down south. However i do love the color you captured. Hope Jilda is better, maybe even taller! Imma thinking you actually make some things up, Mama called it telling a story!
    Be good
