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?

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!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
