Not Gone


Monarch butterfly on Miss Ruby Buddlea

Just thought to pop in this morning to let you know that I have not fallen off the side of the map.   I have a crappy cold that had me laid low since Friday.   This monarch butterfly was one of the only ones to visit the garden this year and if I kept back he was content to visit the Buddleia “Miss Ruby”

Thanksgiving Mums

My oldest son brought me a pot of Chrysanthemums for Thanksgiving.    I miss the ability to post more often.  I got quite good at it when I was doing the August Break but since then I have slid back to my old ways.  

Hope you are having a great day.

H Valerie... Sorry you have been a bit down with a cold. Nothing worse as they can linger for weeks. Fight it girl!

I haven't been lax at posting but rather at visiting other blogs. Some days it just all feels overwhelming doesn't it?

Hope you feel better soon . Hey life gets busy or there just isn't much to post about believe me I know lol dwindling on my posts to cause nothing exciting is going on right now and we have been busy preparing for the cold weather , cleaning gardens , raking leaves, chopping wood and putting summer things in storage . Oh well that's the way it is ! Have a good week !

It's always nice when a post pops up in my reader, but I understand about not feeling motivated. Having a cold isn't fun, either. I hope you feel totally well soon. Lovely butterfly. They just don't stay around long enough.

The cold aside, quite a few bloggers have been dragging and not posting as often either. Maybe it's the time of year making us all feel the same.
See you Thursday - it will give you something to blog about.

I sure hope you feel better soon, Valerie.
It must be the season, as everyone here has a cold, or the like, also. So far I have escaped it.

Get lots of rest, and take good care of you!
