hello blog!!




hello, blog! i’ve missed you! i’ve been on a little hermitage lately often thinking about blogging but there’s been a little voice in my head whispering you got nothin’. maybe i just needed a break. maybe i’ve had a bit of the winter blues. maybe i’ve just been lazy and too happy and comfortable reading and snuggling with the puppies. whatever the reason, i’m itching to get back into the blogging saddle. thanks to those of you who sent messages asking if i was ok. it meant a lot!!

today the sun is out and the temperature is rising.  birds were singing outside my window as i awoke this early morning. snow is quickly melting and i’m seeing tiny buds on the trees. big sigh!!

the photo is a combination of three photos i took last summer. the cute girl in yellow is my granddaughter jenna. she was so cooperative when I asked her to pose with a dandelion. i wrote the poem with a strong yearning for the summer sun!

I was just wondering about you last night and hoping no more disasters had befallen you or hubby.

I like this new collage you put together. I has the hopefulness of a spring day.

I sometimes think I need a blogger break! You were wise to do it!!

I absolutely love that photograph. SO clever of you, and just really, really lovely.

I've been a bit off blogging this winter, too. Low physical and mental energy, yes; and sometimes it's just nicer to lose yourself in reading.

I thought spring was coming, and then we had snow again this morning! Luckily nothing stuck.
Hang in there- it IS around the corner!
