time an arrow...

but fruit a banana.


it's been a month since i posted.

the full moon has come and gone.
28  feb  2013

i have completely gotten over my bout of bronchitis...
but i'm still on hiatus!

i know i said (in my previous post) that i would be wandering blogland...
visiting all the places i love...
but i haven't.

bad me.

i just can't get motivated to do so.

“Sometimes I can hear my bones 
straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.” 
~ Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

i need more TIME for STUFF...
like reading books (i have read about 5 since my last post)

i need more TIME OUTSIDE...
(temps to freezing at night, in the 60's during the day. aaaaaaah. perfect!)
blossoms on the apple tree we planted in milo's honor

TIME to breathe the fresh air...
and watch for snakes, lizards & bugs...

a Red-banded Hairstreak, on 'milo's apple tree

a Cloudless sulphur resting on the ground's crunchy leaves

a Phaon Crescent soaking up the sun

TIME to listen to the birds...

Red-bellied woodpecker

~L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House Of Dreams

a PEACEful dove

Pileated woodpecker

TIME to save a dehydrated turtle that wandered into the yard...

i carried him way out the wet & swampy-ish area...
and left him at the edge of the water.

when i went back to check on him later...he was gone!

i've been making more TIME for being creative...

TIME for cleaning found snake bones & making new earrings!

 these (and more) are at my etsy shop, but i'm also considering going to a local reptile shop to see if they'd be interested in selling them in their store. BUT i'm a terrible salesperson! SO, truthfully, i'll probably never get around to doing that!

anyway...yep!!   i feel like a deserter...a heel...a stick in the mud!

my first blog post was on 21 april, 2010...
with no real vacation.
i started to feel as though cyberspace was sucking the life out of me.

TIME for change. 

so.  i'm still on an extended...time-out.
i  still check  my email...
and i can be spotted on FB now and then.

OH and i almost forgot...emo!!  7 months old on march 16th...

and still a tree hugger & climber!  we take him out for 'walks' regularly!

in the meantime...i hope life is good for all.

(mucho thanks & gratitude to all who left notes of 
support & encouragement & understanding on my last post!!)
thanks in advance for sticking it out to the end here today!

take care  &  be safe.
