Break Time!

During the next two-to-three weeks, my blog posts will be sporadic…or maybe just non-existent.

Motor Man and I are coming up on a busy time: preparing for and hosting my family reunion,

a couple of boat races,

and perhaps a little “adventure” or two.

With life being so hectic right now, I think it will be easier to just put the blog on hold for a little while.

So, stay cool, enjoy your summer, and I’ll be back soon with, hopefully, some interesting blog material!

Blogging Breaks Are Overrated

Just when you thought I was taking a blogging break, here I am with a new post.

I can’t help it: I love blogging. The only downside happens on those days that I just don’t have anything of interest to say. But when I don’t post, I miss the interaction with my readers.

And just when I needed a little extra encouragement, I received this message Monday evening in an email:

I have so much enjoyed your posts and have forwarded many of them to my sister in Huntsville, Alabama.  She is a naturalist and loves your outdoor photos.  She’s also a horsewoman and loves your horse photos, and a cat-lover as well.  I always read your posts with a big smile on my face, so you can rest assured of the pleasure and interest you bring to other people’s lives. “

This was from a gentleman in Georgia who is researching his genealogy and discovered my blog as a result of that research. (I shared his first contact with me in this Random Five Friday post). He now believes with some certainty that he and I are distantly related, and promises to share his manuscript with me once it’s complete.

Every comment/compliment regarding my posts is much appreciated, whether it’s left here on the blog, on the Facebook link or from those people I see in person.

So, I’m back to blogging after what may be the shortest break in history. But, don’t be concerned if there isn’t a post everyday.

A little break now and then can be refreshing.

Break Time

I’m taking a little blogging break. Everything is fine here; things have just been a little quiet as of late, so nothing interesting to share with my readers.

Sunrise - April 11

Sunrise – April 11

I’ll be back soon with more pictures of kitties. Or sunrises. Or sunsets. Or flowers….

Random Five Friday

Since it’s Friday, here are five random thoughts:

1.) Fire on the water? No, just the early morning sun, peeking under the clouds last Sunday.

2.) Today is my friend, Doris’s, birthday. Happy Birthday, Doris! I’m looking forward to celebrating with you next week.

 3.) Bride and Groom swans made a brief appearance here yesterday.  It’s probably been two months since we’ve seen them, and no, they didn’t divulge any info about where they’ve been.

4.) There’s a story behind this picture, and I’ll share it in a blog post next week.  Any guesses?

5.) With the holidays approaching, I may be taking a day off from blogging here and there.  So if you’re a regular reader, and there’s no post, not to worry.

Feel free to share your randoms. Happy Weekend!
