I’m attempting to get back to a normal routine.  And so. . .

can anyone tell me why the main WordPress page hasn’t changed in over a week?  Usually, there are new Freshly Pressed sites at least every other day.  This past week?  Nothing has changed.

I am posting a couple of shots I took in my garden yesterday.  One is a giant Liguleria leaf — it caught my eye as I walked up the driveway, and I thought:  Okay, that made me smile.  So, go get the camera.  Then I had a moment of:  I should just keep trudging into the house and stay feeling miserable, but then I gave myself a mental shake and told myself to stop being ridiculous.  It’s time to get on with it.

Things change.  That’s the reality.  Life, however, will just keep on unfolding as it always has and always will.  I can keep my eyes and my heart open to what change will bring or I can put blinders on and hobble myself with futile thoughts of what I wished was true.

And, with that

I give you these pictures of simple beauty from my yard.  The geraniums just don’t have enough sense to quit — I admire that immensely.
