It's April

I can't believe I have gone so long with out posting. I have been in a slump. The weather flip-flops from warm to cold, it is very windy, and I don't have a clue. Every time I sit down to write, I draw a blank. Is it menopausal brain death? Lack of a fast-paced life? Stuck in a rut? There could be so many causes. I feel silly posting day-to-day occurrences like went to the city to pick up DaDa's prescriptions, bought groceries, had my toenails painted so cute. I don't want you to think I don't have a life!

But truly, I have spent time with my grandchildren lately and have really enjoyed them. I helped hide eggs for the community Easter Egg hunt on Saturday and nearly blew away, however the kids didn't mind the wind. I check the flower beds every day or two to make sure spring is really coming. We had a great Easter Sunday. My son-in-law was baptized and we had a family dinner. As usual, I ate way to much but enjoyed every bite. I love Easter. The church services the past few weeks and on Easter were so inspiring. Thank you God for the sacrifice of your son for me. It just amazes me that he loves us so much. I hope your Easter week-end was a blessing.

I bought a new camera, well new to me, on eBay. It has so many buttons and dials. I was tired of my point-and-shoot, but I think I may have lost my mind for real. This camera is so technical. Why don't my pictures look better? I was sure it was the old camera and not me. Spring has to hurry because I am tired of taking pictures of brown leaves and dead grass. I have discovered my house does not provide enough natural lighting and I thought I designed it so well. The grandkids run and hide when I get out the camera--"Oh No, not again!!". Poor babies. I also bought Photoshop Elements thinking I could do this. Hello, where are the step-by-step instructions??? I am not giving up, I can do this, please Lord help me get a clue. I just love all the great pictures on other blogs. I can do this, I can do this. It just may be more of a senior moment instead of a menopausal moment. I have the time, I hope.

Blessings to you and may you enjoy each and every moment God blesses you with.

Sometimes the hardest part of blogging is just getting started. You did just fine once you got started and shared a lot of good news and interesting information. At 54 I think I spend my energy doing active things and veg when I sit down and get still. I think about blogging but I just don't always get around to it. And I don't think I have much to blog about and don't want to bore anyone. Sometimes I'm surprised people blog so much:)

Good to hear from you!

I have a new camera, too. We need to take a class!
