Blindshot! Flower Friday

Each time I pull in our driveway these flowers wave at me... Last week, I used my cell phone and madly snapped these blind shots. the sun was blinding, and I had no idea what the camera was seeing.

Todays Questions.....   1. How are you feeling right now? 2. Are you emotional?

 I am feeling good about asking all of you 2 questions and happy with my blind shots.

YES, I am emotional,  I cry when happy, sad, mad. Movies make me cry. do NOT let me watch a movie in which an animal is harmed in any way...When I tell a sad story, whether about me and mine or about someone else I tear up and cry.

My biopsy on skin cancer came back, as Basil Carcinoma, she needs to scrape and cauterize and all will be well. Since I have Appointment for PDT light treatment on Sept 11, she will do it the same day.  This will be the 1st anniversary of IRMA the hurricane.  My Own Party

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses a drug and a special type of light. ... You absorb the drug which makes your cells sensitive to light. Your doctor then shines a special light on the treatment area which destroys the cancer cells.

The flowers are gorgeous! And your blind shot looks like perfect vision. I have never heard of this therapy, maybe it is new. Phil has had a few Basel Cells, and no one ever did the light therapy. how I'm feeling now, frustrated! My e-mail is down. I will have to get up and call the computer guy.

Wait!!! WHAT??? I miss a post or two and find out you have cancer?? I must pay more attention! Yay for them taking care of it! The sooner the better!
Yes, I am emotional. Not overly so but some. I come back from the nursing homes totally drained. Even if the visits have been good ones. Louis Dean is VERY emotional. He cries when he sings sad songs. Nearly every time.
Right now I am feeling pretty good. I went to bed last night at 9:00 and slept until 8:00 this morning. AND I took a nap this evening. So I am up blowing and going after getting my second wind. I know YOU are sound asleep!

The flowers are pretty. So nice of them to wave to you when you pull in the driveway.
I must not have been paying attention or you said and I forgot about the biopsy. Sounds like an easy procedure.
How am I feeling, right now tired. I want to go back to bed instead of to work.
Am I emotional. Sometimes I think I can be but not always.

That is a blessing that they discovered the carcinoma and can take care of it for you. Your photo is nice and colorful.

Your flowers are beautiful. They are a lovely sight to see when you pull up on your driveway! I can be a crybaby over a sappy story or movie. I am glad your treatment is easy and will be successful. I had good news from my dermatologist visit yesterday. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

I love your pink flowers - not sure of what kind they are.
I am glad you had basil cell that is what I had. What is the light treatment?
I feel pretty good today - I love Fridays.
I would have to say I am pretty emotional - maybe an 8 out of a 10!
Have a good weekend.

Pretty moss roses (I call them rock roses) on your drive. It's nice that they welcome you when you arrive home. That's interesting about the treatment. When I was diagnosed with the cancer issue my oncologist kindly referred me to hospital skin department as I was worried about some
skin blemishes and moles. Thankfully the ones I have are not malignant which put my mind at rest. Take care Sandra.

MS your blind shots are better than many of my shots with both eyes open and nothing in the way.

Thank goodness you got the skin cancer taken care of and all will be well after September.

1. I feel hunky dory fine...
2. I'm really not much of a outer crier. I do get emotional over certain things...I worry which is kinda like crying inside.
Hugs C

So relieved to learn your carcinoma is scheduled for demolition!

As usual, another great blind shot! With the myriad of cell accessories out there, I wish someone would invent a clip-on awning so we could see in bright daylight.

Today's questions?

1. Feeling OK … my lower back is still achy-breaky but hey, it's still working.
2. Oh, yes! Except unless you knew me really, REALLY well you might not be able to tell. I suspect I feel sad things deeper than most people, but I'm reluctant to show it. Except at the movies. We don't go but once in a blue moon, but Tom's become accustomed to sitting in the after almost everyone's left while I try and compose myself. Forget the likes of Old Yeller, etc. … I'm still traumatized by Bambi!

Sounds like you are kicking you skin cancer's behind!! Glad you are getting things taken care of.

I am feeling fine, except for the slight headahce Miss Rosy is giving me with her squeaky toys...she can squeak for hours LOL.

As I get older, I feel I am getting much more emotional!!

photowannabe said...

Really great "Blind shots".
Sorry for the cancer conclusion but I'm glad you can have it taken care of. Please take care of your self.
I knew there was a good reason I liked you so much.
Emotional is my middle name.
I cry when sad, happy, angry, frustrated...I cry at movies both happy and sad. Hubby doesn't like movies because he's such a softy and puddles up worse than I.
Love your soul searching questions. Have a good day.

All the best with the skin cancer treatments. I've had them too, one was melanoma, but before it got dangerous. It was where I had radiation, so it made sense. And, of course, that's why we go to see the dermatologist a couple of times a year.

When I arrived at the bottom of your post, I had forgotten what the questions were. Phew, that's so annoying. But I do rmember the movies and I can't stand movies where animals get hurt either.

Now I'm going to see what the questions were.

OK. I'm feeling fine, except the smoky air is making me not breathe as well as I should. And it makes me have to stay indoors for the most part, which is OK for now. Am I emotional? I was, but I'm not sure I am now. I have empathy, I feel the pain of others, people and critters, but I think that as I have gotten older, I'm not as emotional as I was earlier in my life. Have a great day and I hope they get rid of the cancer and that you will have no more problems like that.

If these are blind shot, they are amazing.Maybe I should give the a try and see what happens. Hope the treatment does what it is supposed to and knocks out the cancer.

Denise inVA said...

I am glad the skin treatment will be taken care of. The flowers are so pretty. They came out really well. Yes I am emotional, I cry when I am happy, I cry when I am sad.

Just Mags said...

Beautiful moss rose and wow, what great shots...I need to try some blind shots. So glad that they are going to get right on with your treatments and you will continue to be in my prayers for success in getting rid of all cancer. Right now I am in a state of mixed emotions some that I have never experienced before. Hugs and all the best sweet Sandra, have a wonderful weekend.

Gayle said...

Praying for the best outcome of your treatments.

Feeling right now? - Upbeat. I had a decent night's rest for a change.
Am I emotional? - definitely but few people ever witness it. I come from a 'stoic' family. Then as a 19 yr old (war widow) I built a wall until the RG came along. He is a veterans and went on to serve the veterans for the next 38 years. He sheds tears easily and has taught me its o.k. to 'feel' although I still don't cry publicly.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the flowers. Right now I am happy visiting Amber and Dylan. I am pretty emotional most days. Wait....come to think of it I cried this morning. Mark hurt my feelings!!!

Rose said...

I am sorry you have had skin cancer...I have had three removed from face. I usually get so tense before I go to the dermatologist, but this last time the first week of this month barely bothered me. She removed precancer cells...

Do you worry about it now, or does all the other stuff make it seem like minor irritations to you?
