If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire—then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. Learn to separate the inconveniences from the real problems. You will live longer.
More about this quote of a quote here. 

What was it again about  things that come in threes?  Let me show off my Latin, wow I am so fabulous: omne trium perfectum - have a guess.

Like The Three Little Pigs and The Three Musketeers. Or specifically, my father in hospital, my man with his first ever strep throat still contemplating his first ever prescription of antibiotics (we are not there yet and you have no idea) and myself with a temperature of something above normal but hey, no strep throat.
Outside, heavy frost. Wait, that's four things.


  1. Well, your pictures are beautiful. So there is that.

  2. Well, if you believe, there's the Trinity. I don't really believe in the meaning ascribed to that Trinity.
    But then, there is that..the perfection of three.
    Luscious pictures.

  3. I had my fill of frosty weather earlier in life but I sure do love what it does in those photos!
    Enjoyed the story in the link. All it takes to get life's little annoyances into perspective is to go through what Sigmund W went through. I need reminders now and again.

  4. The daughters of a friend of mine shrug at most things - dismissing them as 'First World Problems' - as opposed to the struggles of the Third World. It's a phrase I use frequently - for instance, to remind myself that a 20 minute queue in the Post Office isn't a disaster!

  5. There is something very powerful about that last photo with the vegetation after the heavy frost.

  6. Things only happen in threes because we stop counting! Beautiful photos on a planet where everything is happening all the time. Take care there. Be well and best wishes to all of your loved ones.

  7. Most useful thing I learned in nursing school, when to go for antibiotics based on the color of the snot.

    White/clear- allergies or viral.
    Yellow - viral.
    Green - bacterial, needs antibiotics.
