April 3rd…

came and went,

my 4 year anniversary with WordPress, uncelebrated and with no fanfare!  And this was the anniversary when I was meant to decide whether or not to go on with my extremely limited participation.

Well…I have decided…to continue, but make no promises about participation.  Or what the subject matter will be when I do participate.

Today, since I’ve done some doodles and taken some photographs, I’m here to share:

*~*~*~*

I continue to keep my ‘eye’ on current politics…my head explodes at least once daily.  That’s MY new normal!!!

My little Point and Shoot camera demises more each time I use it, but I’m not in the mood to buy another one…yet.  Probably should buy a new pair of glasses first (my most recent fix to current pair was to superglue on an eyepad…LOL).  And I’m also saving for a new computer…I’ve been using this one for a while and it’s reaching the outer limit of how many years they usually last.  So once again I’ve talked myself out of a new camera 🙂

Baron has suffered mightily from allergies this year, early warm weather brought early pollen.  He still has patches where he chewed off his hair and it hasn’t grown back.  The beginning of April we celebrated his 9 year birthday.  I told him he’s catching up with me, he was apx. 63 in human years this year.  Two more years and he’ll zoom right past me.  ARRRRGH, I’m really not ready for him to be older than me.

The national debt and I appear to be on speaking terms since I had my front yard landscaped with Florida Native Plants.  So now I have plenty to do to keep me busy outside.  Weeding, oh yeah I remember, super fun 🙂

I feel better about life then I have for the past several years…coming to terms, perhaps, with Don’s death 7 years ago

now looking for ways I can support Senator Bernie Sanders and the Our Revolution movement

Labor Day 2016

nothing says

LABOR

like laundry labor…in the days before washing machines

washerwoman

so thank you to all the women and men, of the past and present, who were/are “up to their elbows in suds” so we all could/can wear clean clothes

oh the joy to have no gaps where a line refused to show up and no crack across the glass which sometimes made it difficult to achieve the desired result

I had to choose between a new camera and the Fire (which takes photos front and rear) and the FIRE won 🙂

Happy Monday

🙂
