First off, I have missed everyone sooo much!!! It seems as though I've not blogged in months, but I am thinking it is closer to a week......my brain and time evaluation make for bad partners.....LOL!!! Frankly, anything associated with my brain anymore makes for a bad partnership. Hmmmmmm.....must be Mental-Pause.
Updates on my hands, pain, etc. I am on a new med. It appears to be helping, as long as I behave. Behave, as in:
--Watching how much time I spend on here.
--Watching how much I do that is stressful.
--Watching my knitting SIT and not get any bigger.......
Photography is still in the *can do* catagory, so I am thankful for that!
I received so many lovely comments and well wishes over the time I was off here, I am humbled and completely blown away. And at a loss for words too. I appreciate every single one. I think I got most of them posted. If there were a few I did not post, it was because something struck me as exceptionally personal and I squirrelled them away in my e-mail, where they keep my heart warm.
Thank You----all of you! You remind me why I blog!!!
So to gently glide back into the routine, I am posting some delightful shots I lucked out with. This butterfly did not seem to mind posing at all, and I took full advantage of the situation. The one photo with both the butterfly AND the bee was a perk---I did not know the bee was in it until I brought it up to size it for publishing! One of those lovely little surprises of photography!
I have been working on some art, and when I post it, it will be in a couple of photo intensive posts. Been trying to remember along the way to take pics of what I am doing.......we're back to those brain issues again. (I've noticed the new med does NOTHING to help my forgetfulness, eventhough it is just for arthritis....I mean, is it too much to ask for ONE PILL to fix EVERYTHING?????LOL!!!) So hopefully those will start being put up later this week.
The only adventure of note I have had was when I took the hatchet to chop down a dead tree in the yard and then dragging it to the far reaches of the back forty to rot. The sight of me, squatted down, swinging a razor-sharp hatchet and wearing soft shoes and knit pants is...well....something you don't want to think about before breakfast.
P.D.U. (pretty damn ugly!)
I really need to lose weight so I can get back in my work jeans......or at least be sensible enough to put on my steel-toed work boots.
Now that I have utterly ruined your Monday morning with that mental visual, I shall leave. There is art to be made and hopefully I can work my way around a few blogs before the hands give out.
I'm really trying to behave.
