where have i been?
nowhere in particular. right here.
reading books. a lot!
taking pictures. a lot!

i've thought about entering blog-land...many times.
but for some reason i just couldn't get motivated to do so.
emo found a snake in the garden...right by the front steps.
fortunately he (emo) was smart enough to leave it alone!
i did pick him (emo) up and bring him indoors...just to play it safe...
while the VENOMOUS Moccasin moves on!
(pretty scary too!)
it's the year of the snake.
and i was born in a snake year too.
so i thought it an omen!??
today seemed like a good day to poke my head in and say 'hi'.
i want to ease my way in.
one of the reasons i took a blog hiatus, was i started to feel overwhelmed.
now i plan to take it slower.
less often posting...and not trying to read every post of every blog i follow!
come on in
and enjoy a few pictures.

one morning in may...about 7am, i looked out the back door...
and here's what i saw!! a Barred Owl perched on the bird feeder...looking right at me!!

|a Zebra Longwing - the state butterfly for florida...feeding on lantana|
about dem bOnes.
of course i'm still into bones.
finding them. cleaning them. turning them into...art? jewelry? it all depends...
|a hog skull my son travis found for me! =)|
another great find!
i'm pretty sure these are Opossum feet!!
the end is near.
ONE more thing to mention.
he sure has grown!!
and what a personality!
he is a butterfly, dragonfly, mole & mouse chaser.
he is an expert climber,
drinks out of the sink faucet,
and still sucks on our fingers at night.
here he is...deep n thought.
and here he is...passed out in sam's lap.
