The Buzz


As the summer buzzes into full gear
you'll probably just be seeing weekly posts from me
(unless I decide to throw in an extra one here and there)
::
bouncing back between city and lake
keeps us pretty busy throughout the summer
::
I'll keep checking in with all my peeps
 'cause i need my fix of all your creativity
and dropping my two cents whenever i get the chance!

::

I have a funny to share with you....

the other day I was talking to my mom on the phone
and she told me she looks at the obits every day
to make sure she's not in them! 

I giggle, now, every time I think about it!

  9. My Mother-in-law used to say the same thing about the obits...!! I find myself reading them, not for myself tho. Great looking floral shot with the bee. Enjoy your summertime!!

  10. Great capture of the bee - yes they know just when to show up!
    As I get older, I read the obits and sadly take note of those around my age or younger who have passed. I think it makes me feel fortunate to be able to enjoy another day. Gosh, I hope that didn't sound depressing.... Have a wonderful day!

  19. Lovely lavender color and great close-up. When I worked at the local Newspaper, some of the older guys that came in would say that, and that's the first time I'd heard it.
