Sailing Along

What a blessing it is to be surrounded by family and friends; to have good health, a steady income, and lots of civic commitment; to live amidst and enjoy nature’s beauty.

As I sail along through life’s goodness and challenges, I have not forgotten Life on the Bike and my WordPress friends.

See you this coming weekend!

Still Summer

The calendar says Sept 4th,

3 days after Labor Day,

the traditional “end of summer”.

In my garden though, summer is still here!

Each morning, I get to enjoy seeing the flowers that still grace the space outside my kitchen door.

And thankfully, my basil is still growing beautifully!

It’s been awhile since I’ve attempted some macro shooting (even though I don’t have a macro lens) and I decided I needed practice.  You, my dear blogger friends, are my guinea pigs.  As fall approaches,  I’ll definitely be practicing more!

In the meantime, I want to thank you for inspiring me with your craft, whatever it may be; for making me laugh; for causing me to sigh with both happiness and in thought, and for being here on WordPress with me!
