I'm Lichen It

Catchy title, eh?  (And then the cursor just blinks and I can't think what to write!)  'Cause, what I want to say is that there ain't much I AM likin' right now.  But, have no worries, that doesn't mean I'm down or depressed.  I'm just T-I-R-E-D.  And maybe this is the universe's way of making me "eager" to leave Swamp River Ridge.  I will just be SO glad once the move is DONE and I only have one little home and the packing and hauling are over.

But, I had a nice visit with my BFF and her family at their little cabin on Saturday night . . . and then an even better visit again on Sunday.  So, I'm likin' that!  And, I'm lichen THESE that we found as we spent a long, relaxing time tromping through the woods:

And, with that, I've gotta sign off.  It's time to get ready for - ugh - work.  BUT, it's one of my two "Fridays", so yayyyyy!

(Sorry I'm not posting much during this busy time.  Bear with me?)


  1. Beautiful lichens in beautiful country! And don't go putting "not blogging enough" on your worry list. Folks understand. You are busy and tired and ready to get to the other side of this, ahem, experience. Hang on, take good care.

  2. I LOVE the perspective on that second picture. I would have never thought to shoot it that way! Miss you already.

  3. Of course we'll bear with you! We ruv you. Lovely pix - and your glorious sense of humor keeps shining through! Things will be so much better once you are able to be in one place and not all over the place!

  4. I LOVE your pictures! Also, I totally appreciate your take on life. You inspire me to keep plugging along, I think of how you take a tough situation and turn it around to make the best of it. Hope you have a wonderful day!
