Just to let you know....

 I don't think I can totally stop blogging-so I wanted to let my pals know I am lagging a little on it...but I am still going to blog.
these pictures are from a few years ago

Doing life.


 I have thought about not blogging any more. I love my time away from the computer more and more these days. I think about my motives for blogging, and find I need to distance myself from the online experience - sometimes it can consume. It definitely takes time from me. Is it a waste of time? I would say yes, except for the friends I have made doing this. I treasure them all.
 But it can be a false sense of friendship-after all, I don't see my friends, I merely read what they write. It can be a strange thing to think about.
 Truly, I have written about all the things that matter to me. It's all here somewhere on this blog.
 So I even post this cautiously, wondering what the heck I'm doing here.

 It sounds as if I am being negative but I'm not, really.
 I don't want life to just be the thing that happens between blog posts. I think for me, this is wearing out.
 I like to post about my art because it helps me see my progress. But here at Sparrowgrass, I have posted all the pretty pictures I can post until I just have run out, and the 'want to' isn't there any more.
So if I am silent here, it's because I am having a good time with my husband and geese, and I am praying little snippets through my day, and reading God's Word, or holding a goose, or just looking out a window.
I think that's enough for now.

Fake emails-be careful what you open!

 Please be careful what emails you open, even if it seems to be from someone you email a lot. Have your email settings so you can read the first line BEFORE you click on the email to open it up. You never know what is lurking if you open an email-a nasty virus, or worse, a portal to your account...Anything is possible.
I do not email anyone unless I ask them first in a comment at their blog. So if you have gotten a weird email that looks like it's from me-it isn't. Don't open it!
Be careful who you give your email address to.

Last Fall...

 All of these photos were taken last year in October. The colors this year are already appearing-we are about a month ahead of fall colors because of the cooler summer. This is a scene I walk past every time I take my 2 mile walk-all of these photos show along the road.
 So far I have not met a bear, but I am going to get some pepper spray just in case. Actually, I am more wary of humans out here than wild life.
 I have seen coyotes run across the road, skunks in the ditch, heard a very awful and scary creature in the woods as I was walking by, and have seen hundreds of snails, red newts, worms and other assorted creatures on the road. I feel like it's my own road.



The cloud of fog is covering the lake. Now this big fellow has about ten or so horse pals to run around with. Some of the horses are Percherons (sp?) and when they gallop it sounds like thunder-it's really neat. I give them clover sometimes.
I do love the Fall, but there's a sadness too-not too much though, but I miss my robin song....Right now we are hearing a few peepers in the woods. They always make a short comeback this time of year, and then they are silent until next spring.
