I try to answer all of the comments in my inbox and have finally come to the conclusion that I cannot. I don’t know how the other bloggers do it, I really don’t. After my husband passed away, I received an enormous outpouring of condolences. My in-box was flooded and my outbox wasn’t keeping up with it.
If you haven’t heard from me, it’s not because I don’t love ya. Ok?
It’s because I just can’t keep up sometimes. But please know that I know you’re out there and I’m glad that you come to visit. What would I ever do without you?!
I took this with my camera phone this weekend. I was coming up the driveway from shopping on Saturday.
It is so beautiful here on this property, and it begins by coming up the driveway through the woods.
An autumn sunset through the trees can be seen from the house.
I took this photo of a tufted titmouse last November, almost a year ago today. I haven’t had time to sit outside and take pictures of the birds. This was always something I always enjoyed doing. I’m sure the time will come. I’ve just been a little busy lately.
And that’s a good thing.
I guess I never realized all of the things my husband did around here to keep this place going. He never really told me. He just quietly did things. Sometimes I feel like I can’t keep up with it all.

I’m looking forward to seeing family at Thanksgiving.
Bob & Helen will be hosting again this year. Helen is my husband’s sister. She and Bob have been together forever.
They are grandparents this year. Baby M is their granddaughter ~
El and Seamus are retired now and have moved to Spain. World-travelers, they are and Spain was one of their favorite places. I enjoy looking at the beautiful photos from their new home and from their travels abroad.
My sister-in-law, Elaine. She and my husband’s brother were together since high school.
The lovely Kim and her husband, Pete. They are Baby M’s parents.
This is Colleen, Elaine & Rich’s daughter.
(Andrew’s dear brother, Rich, passed away on January 4 of this year.)
My husband’s parents, Anna and Godfrey.
And finally ~ Baby M!
So if you’re a family member and didn’t see your picture here, it’s not because I don’t love you. Ok?
Hope your week is off to a good start. Today was a busy one at school. Before I knew it, it was the end of the day and there was one happy dog that sure was glad to see me when I arrived home.
