Back in the Saddle Again

Figuratively, of course – I like horses (most girls do), but I don’t really want to sit on top of one and gallop about.

I’m picking up my blog again.  Someone mentioned yesterday that I hadn’t written anything for a while, and I guess it’s time.  I’ve been in the doldrums since Mom passed away.   Yesterday, we put her body next to Dad’s, and said our last goodbyes on this earth.  So it’s time.

This weekend we noticed that we once again have a backyard visitor that we cannot identify.

Name That Bird!
The song is exactly like that of an Orange-Crowned Warbler, but the colours don’t look right – I’m hoping someone with birding knowledge will ID it for me.

I've really found it hard to stay motivated re: blogging this last year or so too - at first I thought it was partly because of my father dying & that I was a bit low in spirits, but social media (Facebook in particular) really strongly tugs one away from it! I think it's really worthwhile, though - I am sure I will never again be posting so often as I once did, but it's a much better place for archiving stuff and being able to find it again....

I hear you, Jenny! I am also sure there is more to my non-blogging than Mom's passing, and I can think of a few things if I try. It does make a great archive site, as you say!
