Keeping in Touch

As you may know, my heart's not in the blog lately. But it is very much with your  blogs. If I'm not putting an hour into an art post these days, I'm trying to visit blogs more frequently. My blogging mood is currently quiet, but just because I didn't leave a comment, doesn't mean I didn't see your post.  :-) 

I don't have much to offer, just a few photos of my yard where I've been resting more than usual these days due to my injured back. After re-injuring the tight muscles on Thursday (just minutes after a professional massage, interestingly) I am today, I hope, well on my way to full recovery. I went to work today, even wore my new groovy wedgie shoes (Becky, did you get yours yet? ;-) and the day went well. It was a beautiful, mostly sunny spring day, too. A bit gusty but everyone at school from toddlers to teachers was in a good mood. Personally, due to the week and a half of back problems, this is the first spring-like day I've enjoyed so far.


Thank you so much to those of you who left encouraging and positive comments. They really helped to make this bad spell pass more easily. And to a couple of new followers who recently left comments, my apologies for the dole drums.

And the forsythia that has finally begun to bloom.

  6. Oh there's nothing like a nice new pair of highheel shoes to get a girl dancing out the door on a fresh Spring morning.

    The pictures are lovely.

  8. Great to hear you're on the mend, take your time getting back to full-steam-ahead mode (I always rush it, with sub-optimal results.)

    And the view from your front yard is always a stunner!
