I usually run with a theme. Sorry, this has been a busy and sad week so it is more snippets from home.
Jazz does have cancer. Palliative care is our only option. We will keep him comfortable and happy for as long as we can and will then set him free with love and regret. We have transdermal painkillers for him which are administered by smearing them in his ears. They seem to work really well. As I prepare this post he is purring and eating a little. Both wonderful signs.
Now to the snippets. I am still surrounded by beauty, and very grateful for it.
Early mornings continue to delight me.
The birds also bring me joy.
The blotchy young crimson rosellas in the photos above is developing his/her adult plumage. Soon he/she will look like this, resplendent in blues and reds with no green feathers to be seen.
The rainbow lorikeets also continue to add colour to our often bare trees and wintry skies.
I hope you find colour and beauty in your week.
