Beauty and Some Randomness

Yesterday I walked outside to the most beautiful sunrise.

It took my breath away.  I don't think I'm usually awake enough to notice anything other than how hot my coffee is.  (I like it very, very hot!)

I don't know what all those streaky lines in the sky were, but I like them.  The silhouette of the mountains was stunning.

I love the reflection of the sunrise in the lake.  It was such a beautiful sight first thing in the morning.

Fantastic, isn't it?

I should just end this post with that, but no … I'm going to muck it up with a couple random paragraphs now.

I have house guests arriving today from Missouri.  They've never been to California before.  I hope they have the opportunity to see some beautiful sunrises and sunsets while they're here.  I'm feeling a little out of control.  I'm not completely caught up from my trip up the coast and now I have guests arriving.  It's been a chaotic week.  My apologies to the Internet friends I've neglected this week.  I hope to get caught up next week once my guests have departed.

I can't seem to keep my hands off my own boobs and … other parts.  I'm crazy-itchy, from my terrible sunburn.  I bought a lotion yesterday which consists of aloe and lidocaine and it seems to help.  I just need to fill a bathtub with it and sit in it all day long.  (Except, I haven't stopped running for a minute all week so that isn't likely to happen anytime soon.)  I was squirming around from the itchiness at PT and The Torturer said, "And the amazing thing 24, is you did this to yourself."

Doesn't he sound like a nice guy?

When I walked into PT yesterday, one of the techs, Dan, started laughing and told me he knew exactly who I was talking about in my Cougar post the other day.  Dan pulled the post up on his iPhone and passed it to one of the other techs, Derek, who had not yet read it.  The two of them snorted and giggled at my descriptions of their patients. Derek's feelings were a little hurt though.  He thought Ms. Cougar only moaned for him.  He was disappointed to hear she makes sex cries for The Torturer and Dan too.

I don't know why, but I found that very funny.  Maybe you do too?  Poor Derek!  He isn't quite the man he thought he was.  ** snicker **

    So did you make it up to Derek by moaning a bit for him? Probably would have taken care of the bruised ego… usually does for men… lol

    What a beautiful sunrise. I have to go read those posts now because I don’t know what you are talking about and you are always so fascinating. I am a little MAD at my own physical therapists right now. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Sun burn healing IS very itchy! Gaaa hate that!
    Enjoy your guests and don’t worry about whatever doesn’t get done. They’ve come to see you, not inspect your housekeeping skills:)

    Loved the picture of the sunrise reflected in the lake. Hope your guests get to see something like this in the morning when you’re serving them the very, very hot hot coffee. Sorry about the itching. An oatmeal bath, perhaps?

    Just wait till it starts to *peel*.

    I used to think that if I moved back to Cali I’d live in either Carlsbas (southern) or Sonoma (norhern), but your lake and mountain views sure do look appealing.

    Your mountains are so beautiful. Every photo you show us looks different. They must bring you so much joy year round.

    Sunrises, for me, have always kicked any sunset’s a**.
    What a way to begin a new day!
    So sorry to read of your sunburn. That is miserable–you have my sympathies. But think of the vitamin D infusion you got as a result…!!
    Be well, 24.

    I love those photos. The sunsets remind me of my hometown sunsets. Phoenix. We seemed to get those everyday, and I so miss them. We rarely get a great sunset like that where I am in TX.

    Oh how those pictures made me miss those beautiful California sunrises. Always so pink and pretty!
    Hope your sunburn heals up quickly! The itchiness is nearly unbearable!

    I’ve been wondering about your peeling parts.
    I’m surprised you even had to nerve to take a photo of the sun, beautiful as it was.

    Your pics are always beautiful!
    Boo itchy butt and boobies! I don’t know how to make it feel better except maybe cold wash clothes? Someone used to tell me the best thing for a sunburn is to wet a wash cloth with cold water then stick it in the freezer for a bit, and then lay it on your skin? Hope that helps!
