I realized, suddenly, that I did not have one photo of Ziva and I together. I say suddenly because that is how thoughts and ideas come to my head. Out of the clear blue they enter – without warning. They must lurk in the background of my brain, percolating until the time they leap to the forefront and interrupt whatever else I’m thinking about, if anything.
Hubby was helping out at the Sheriffs sub station in town, so I couldn’t have him snap a couple of pix. Our closest neighbors were not in this weekend, so it looked like a selfie for two was the option. I grabbed my iPhone and started the camera app. I have a great non-phone camera, but I was too impatient to look up how to do timed photos in the manual. That, and you must act on the opportunities you have. Ziva was having a calm afternoon, just lazing around. I was grateful because I needed to rest along with her.
I sat down next to Ziva and lined up the camera, but before I could take a photo I had a 70-pound puppy nuzzling and licking me. I’m not usually on the floor, so this must have excited her. We rustled around and I giggled for a while and tried again.
Now, Ziva was full into her Tasmanian Rodeo phase. She runs circles around the living room until she is exhausted. This took a little time to wait out…
Now that she’s worn out, Ziva happily snoozes.
Next, I take 5, well… maybe 10 because it takes nearly 2 to get up off the floor when you’re not a pup.
We try again. This time I am getting better shots of Ziva, but only parts of me.
I am so worn out that holding up my little iPhone is difficult. At one point, I fell over and got a close up of our carpet.
This will have to do for now – I think it’s time for another nap…
