Day 530: Circular Reasoning

On my 530th consecutive day, posting on WordPress,

Image

I woke up with the title of this post on my mind.

I realized that, sometimes, I like to leave a light on while I’m snoozing.

Image

Lots of the lights here have circles, including this one,

Image

Image

… which I’ve owned for many years.

Michael, my boyfriend, is away for a week, so I am feeding the cats.

When I take a photo on my iphone, sometimes it shows up, soon, on my laptop.

Image

Other times, I need to fool around with the phone and the laptop, so I can get the photo here.  Sometimes, I need to email a photo to my phone (like that photo above).

We mix these foods together, for Harley:

Oscar, our other cat …

… needs a different kind of special diet:

Yesterday, it was pouring, so I decided to forego my walk and take the shuttle to work:

Image

Image

I wore my headphones

Image

during the shuttle ride to work, but I wasn’t listening to music. Instead, I was looking at the comments from WordPress readers, in response to yesterday’s post.

I looked up and noticed that we were stuck, near historic Fenway Park:

Image

This is not unusual on this shuttle ride, during baseball season. The next time I looked up, I noticed that we had somehow circled back to our beginning:

Image

That was unprecedented, in my personal experience. I tried to get a shot of some statues I love in front of Fenway, as we moved past them the second time, but this was the best I could do:

Image

I also noticed this, on my way to work:

Image

That’s the wonderful doctor who treated my son, Aaron, almost exactly a year ago, when he ended up in the hospital with a spontaneous lung problem.

When I got to work, still wearing my headphones, I saw Jackie:

I love Jackie. Because Jackie reads my blog, now she knows how I feel about her.

Last night, my son and I went to our usual Friday haunt, but without Michael. We took Aaron’s friend Clark with us.

Image

I noticed that our number was 13, on the Friday the 13th with a full moon — probably a once in a lifetime day. (At least, for me).

I know that last photo focuses on a square, rather than a circle, despite the title of this post.  I do have lots more photos of circles from today, though. And because I like games and puzzles, let’s make this into an eyeball bender (if you choose). In other words, can you identify all these objects?

Oooo!  You know what happened, for the first time ever, as I was composing this?  My worst fear, regarding my daily WordPress postings: I accidentally pressed the publish button, too soon.

As Michael sometimes says, “You’ll live.”  And I did.

Thanks to Michael, Jackie, my son, my readers, and all the other people who make my life better (even when I’m going in circles or making mistakes), no matter what day it is.
