Making a Path

04-08 RoadCollage


The last several weeks have been absolutely crazy.  I’ve missed reading blogs (and writing blog posts,) but today, I couldn’t resist the urge to do a photo post.  It seems like so long since I’ve had the camera with me for the sole reason of capturing things that interest me.  I’ve got a post started about why I’ve been mostly MIA (except for writing prompts) but it still needs to be shorter.  Maybe this week, I’ll be able to pare it down to a bite-sized chunk.

Mondays have a reputation for being difficult.  I’m not saying that it isn’t deserved, but I hope you overcome it and have a beautiful Monday!

    Hope you feel better later today.

    Don’t worry about reading or catching up with my blog – I know you sometimes stress yourself trying to be kind to all the blogs you follow, – just take it easy, enjoy life and come back when you feel like it – I ain’t going anywhere 🙂

    Peace, Eric

      Thanks for understanding, Eric! I do see you have another installment in Daniel’s story, but I’m waiting to read it until I can give it full attention…it may take a couple days 🙂

    Like you, I’ve been somewhat MIA and like you, hoping to be able to get out with my camera. I love your photo inspirations. And you inspire me, as well! Thanks.

      I hope you do get out with your camera soon, Joanne. I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I got out over the weekend. I appreciate you checking out the photo and leaving your comment 🙂

    Post the LONG version of your MIA explanation . . . that’ll keep us busy until you’re back. :mrgreen:

    Love the shots . . . life is FULL of detours.

      Hehehe…oh, it’s really long (like bathroom-break-in-the-middle long). I’m glad you liked the photos, Nancy. I took several that day that might make it into posts, so it was a good day!

    I think a lot of people have been MIA in Blog-land, Janna. Don’t worry about it — just tackle what needs to be done and know you’ll be able to catch up with the rest eventually.

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:00 PM

      True, Debbie. So far, I’ve read them all (the ones that send full text in the email, anyway.) I’m a couple days behind still, but at least my email “In” box isn’t seven pages anymore!

    Great photos, and I know the feeling well as I’ve been sort of MIA as well….got out with my camera for four days though so I’ll be back!

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:01 PM

      Your creativity is spread over many things, so I guess there are times when some things fall behind. I’m glad you got out with the camera – I love your scenery photos, SuziCate!

    I love the ‘road analogy’ Janna. Nice work. Don’t worry about being MIA – it’s not good to put pressure on yourself. Blogging is like a soap opera, you can leave it for a long time and when you come back nothing’s really changed. Relax – and I hope you had a lovely Monday 😀

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:10 PM

      Speaking of analogies, I like the soap opera one you used…so true! So far, I’m sort of keeping up, albeit a few days behind. I had a great Monday – hope you did, too, Dianne 🙂

  7. Diane Turner April 8, 2013 / 1:41 PM

    Love your photos. We all take detours now and then. Happy Monday.

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:11 PM

      Thanks, Diane! I appreciate you taking time to stop by. Happy Monday to you as well (even though it might be Tuesday, depending on where you live :))

    Loved the photos. I need to get back in the habit of carrying my camera with me. I didn’t want to leave it in the car during the colder months.

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:13 PM

      That’s the problem – carrying around the camera. My good camera is pretty big and I won’t leave it in my car…ever (car theft is pretty common…they can have the car but the missing camera would be a bummer!) I’m looking forward to seeing the springtime pictures you capture (hey, isn’t it getting close to butterfly season?)

  9. pattyabr April 8, 2013 / 10:01 PM

    Hey you’re still blogging! Love the pictures. Pictures speak volumes when we don’t have time to get the words into print.

    • jannatwrites April 8, 2013 / 10:15 PM

      Well, I’m sort of blogging (that counts, right?) I’m a few days behind in reading, and for several weeks, I’ve only done prompt writing. It was nice to do something that was solely my idea. I might do a couple more photos this week. Thanks for checking out the pictures, Patty!

    How could life get complicated with just husband, a zillion pets, two kids, a job, a blog, and a book in progress? That hardly seems like an excuse to miss a blog post or two, and you really should feel terrible about it, really. . . but seriously, I hope things calm down a bit for you in the near future. As busy as my simple little life gets at times, I imagine yours is quite the juggling act.

    Connor Rickett blogs at his business site and at his personal (for fun) site. Stop by and say hi!

    Love the photos. I need ot figure out how to pare down my posts….but the scary thing is, they are that long AFTER my paring down! Take it easy….life has a way of taking over. And that’s good.

  12. Imelda April 13, 2013 / 8:01 PM

    Oh, we understand the bloggers have life outside of blogging too. That’s perfectly OK. 🙂 Seriously, I hope everything’s settling well with you.

    • jannatwrites April 13, 2013 / 9:32 PM

      Things are better now, Imelda. It was a rough several weeks but am starting to get a routine again. Whew!
