I woke up to find that dad was sick. My brother said he heard him in the bathroom several times last night getting ill. I won't go into graphic details but it hasn't been pretty. In fact, I've been cleaning, bleaching, laundering, most of the day. I also had to put dad in the shower to get him cleaned up. This particular task is something I had never wanted to do, but knew the time would come. I am lucky to have someone that comes in three times a week to shower him. Unfortunately, today was not one of the days, she was here yesterday.
My baby brother was no help either. He gags at the slightest unpalatable odor and will even pass out at the sight of blood or a needle. Actually, he had to leave the house it was so bad. Of course, this is a small house so.....
The weather wasn't good either, cold, gloomy and sometimes rainy which didn't help either. On my run out to the grocery to pick up Lysol, Germ X and so forth, I stopped to take a few pictures of the Superstition Mountains of which the southern end is right across the road from our house. I have a connection with those mountains, I love them and think they are beautiful no matter what the weather is, so in fact, they kind of cheered me up!
You can't even see the tops of the mountain because the clouds are so low. When it gets colder out here, and it does, we sometimes get snow on the top of the Superstitions.
At any rate, I think this mountain range is beautiful and even though dad was sick and the weather wasn't great, and the day has been a bust, and Kurt leaves us tomorrow..........I enjoyed the peace I got from snapping these few shots.
Hope you find beauty in them too.
