i can't believe that it has been over a month since i last posted to either of my blogs!
i miss it.  actually there are lots of things i miss at the moment.  like reading.
and taking photos with my big camera.  and soaking in a hot bath.  and
cooking for pleasure, not just to feed my family.  and playing piano.
and painting.  oh, how i miss painting.  and crafting.  but lately
i just haven't had time to do any of these things.  is it the 
new puppy?  is it the busyness of two kids and 
their after school activities?  is it the lack
of space in my brain because it's so
full of everything else? i am
not sure, but i mean to
figure it out.  you
see, i'm not
to just
say, oh well,
this is just how it
is ... sure, i have to say 
that for a time because some
times it is just a busy week or two, 
but i refuse to say it forever and just give
up on the things that bring such pleasure to my life.
the other day, i was driving home from somewhere and out
of the corner of my eye, as we drove past the lake, i noticed baby
black swans! i decided to jump on this opportunity!  i stopped home to
grab my camera and turned around and drove back.  i took somewhere near
100 photos of these beauties and i felt so invigorated! i intend to make time for such
things much more regularly! don't worry, i'm not going to post all the photo i took but here
are a few of my favorites ...

These are spectacular! I especially love the one where the mom and baby are looking at each other, like they are chatting (the 4th one below your text). Glad you went back for you camera!

It's so good to see a post here! Love the pictures and I agree with you and your mom - that 4th picture is really good.
