Writer's Block?

Most of my posts center around the flowers in my garden. Some are geared towards design others point out individual plant favorites. Every now and then I add in a photography post although I'm always quick to point out that I'm not a "professional" photographer.

The past week I have had to force myself to sit here and think about something to write. Is it writer's block? No, I don't think so. Writer's block is something that probably would never happen to me. Give me a keyboard and stand back, I'll type circles around you before you know what hit you.

This is Calie-the-wonderdoodle-dog watching me out the living room window this afternoon.

People often think Calie is little, in real life she is 70 pounds and incredibly strong. Of course right now you'd think she's just a big mush, she's just fooling you though.

On one of the garden lists that I write to, I posted that I feel like my life is like a roller-coaster ride. Now I have to admit, I love roller-coasters! Strap me in, flip me upside down, throw me around a curve and drop me down a peak, I'm in heaven the whole way. Sometimes though I think I've just gotten used to the ride when a whoosh, the car turns around and I'm heading backwards around the bend. Quite the opposite of the look on Calie's face here.

My posts might be a bit erratic over the next few weeks but they will get back to normal. As always there is light at the end of the tunnel. Calie might look bored to tears but if you just turn around, you'll see that she actually has the most amazing view just in front of her.

So my advice to you (and to me too) is if you don't like the view, strap on that safety belt and turn around. You might be surprised at how different things suddenly look.

    Still have writers block? I miss your posts. Hope all is well


I do so love to read your comments! Much as I wish I also had time to reply, many times I will have to choose between replying to comments or creating a new post so please understand if I choose to use my time on a new post. This will also give me time to visit some of you too.
