Do I have anything important to say?

…probably not, but that’s never stopped me before 🙂

An old blogger friend (Maggi at Just Add Glitter and Stir) turned up today…was happy to discover she’s still blogging.

how I’ve been using my time productively (over the past 3 months):

tried to grow an avocado tree from a seed, managed a root but never anything else

observed in ceiling area at grandson’s basketball game, that was one tricky shot 🙂

back yard mushroom, I discovered from a friend, with a scientific mind, that trees use mushrooms (the root system) to communicate…with each other…amazing

I’ve had a request to show an update on the native landscaping in the front yard…so I’ll try to get a photo of that today

AND

maybe some photos of the artwork I’ve done lately

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 🙂

So…I’ve been such a slug for the last couple of weeks…now I have a whole bunch of Halloween photos that will have to wait till next year.
