Rabbit Redoux - I Need Pretty Pictures

Well, yesterday certainly didn't go as planned. Instead of a day off, my Manager phoned me at 8:30 am telling me he was up all night vomiting and was running a fever. So, he got the day off and I worked for him. I'll be working for him again today and will hopefully get my day off on Friday.


It was a fun day though, we had some really interesting customers come through the door and some great projects to help people with. And I did get some of the early morning errands taken care of, so it wasn't a total loss. But I didn't get to do laundry, work on my repair, do Solstice cards, or any of the other computer work that I needed to do.



A beautiful twin waterfall in Yosemite National Park.



This incredible waterfall array is in China. Love it!

Yesterday was a national test of the Nationwide Emergency System. What a joke! For weeks we have been warned on our radio and televisions that broadcasting would be interrupted at X time for this test. On TV, I heard the strident tones, but then the broadcast on CNBC went on as normal. On the radio, I got the tones and silence. But many stations had nothing happen at all, and apparently one of the satillite companies ended up with a Lady Gaga song playing instead of the "emergency" instructions. I call it a total failure.



The marble cave above is in Puerto Rico. Maybe it's time for a vacation?



And finally, I offer some Arctic Ice Caves. Beautiful but too cold!

So, since my schedule was totally messed up, I decided to find some wonderful eye candy for all of you. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and that I end up with my studio day on Friday instead.

Aren't they stunning? I hope they bring some beauty to your day.

What beautiful pictures.

I'm sorry you lost your day to yourself - but enjoy it when you get it.
A positive attitude can overcome a lot. I'll get my day. If I don't get Friday, I'll get a double next week - I'll insist on it. He'll grumble (a lot) but I'll win out :-)

So happy that you love the pics, I had fun finding really good ones for you and my other readers.

They are stunning. I wish I could see some of these places in person, but I probably wouldn't be there when the lighting was just perfect, etc. But I can see so many of these in my dreams and they people my visions of Middle Earth, one of the reasons why I enjoy writing within ME so very much.

Those are fabulous pictures, each and every one. I'm sorry your plans were ruined, though.
They are pretty spectacular, aren't they? I have gotten used to rolling with the punches and, with any luck, will be able to take tomorrow off instead. At least that is my current hope :-) Thanks!

Oh, these are gorgeous! I've had a miserable day and these really made me smile.
Thanks. My day hasn't been all that great either, but I'm pleased with the pics that I found to share with my f-list friends.

Wouldn't it be amazing to see such a thing in real life? It looks open enough that maybe my claustrophobia wouldn't come into play getting to it either :-)
