A Quick Note.....

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

So much has been happening here that it has been next to impossible to find the time or the energy to blog. I do apologize for my unannounced absence and my breach of blog etiquette. I hope to get back to regular posting but am making no promises that I cannot keep. Thank you for your kind comments and emails in my absence. I must adopt the pace of nature and be patient knowing that time and schedule will very soon allow me to swiftly return to the delightful land of blog.Our precious little granddaughter did indeed arrive and she is just beautiful! Gorgeous grandson is loving being a big brother and is so sweet with her. Mother and baby are both doing just great. You may wonder why there are no photos of either of them here on my blog. As much as I would love to show them off, I honor their parents requests that their photos not be posted.Actually, I post very few photos of people on my blog, myself included. While I might write about my family on occasion, I do not use their names or images without their permission. They did not sign on to be a part of this blog and I respect their wishes. My blog is not much about people anyway, mostly it is about art, nature, and the observations I make in the wonderful world around me.Today I am off to join Puck, my garden statue pictured above, in playing out of doors. I hear Autumn beginning to whisper and I want to see if I can capture signs of her impending arrival. My gathering basket has been quite lonely lately so we will take a stroll and see what we can find to incorporate is a new art piece my brain has been brewing up. I hope you have wonderful plans in store for this day too!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

Congratulations to all of you on the birth of your granddaughter, a precious blessing from Heaven. We are having a cloudy, drizzly day but I am noticing more red in the leaves this weekend. Take care and enjoy your walk around the property and I hope you fill your gathering basket with delightful things to make your heart sing!

A new granddaughter - how lovely! Enjoy gathering today - autumn days are filled with whispers of sunshine and breezes. We need to take advantage of them while we can!

Being sensitive to those around us is a very good thing.

I am very happy for you in the birth of your new Grandbaby!

I'm glad your granddaughter is safely here! Don't worry about taking a break -- we'll be here when you get back!

Also: I was the same way - I never, never posted photos of my son online anywhere until he was about 11. It makes sense.

Yes I have a request not to post some family members, especially beautiful young children. I wish that was not the case, but I fully understand. I am so excited our oaks trees are beginning to have acorns.

You have been missed. In fact, I was just about ready to send a search and rescue team to find you.

I completely understand that some seasons of life are busier than others. Congratulations on your granddaughter. As long as your hugging and kissing on her I guess we can pardon your absence.

Blessings!

Congratulations on your granddaughter. You did mention that you were going there and as birth is one of the most exciting moments of life I wasn't surprised at all that you took your time.
I think too that posting photos is a matter of personal taste. It really doesn't matter, as after a while you have the feeling you know someone who is blogging, with or without the image, it is the feeling that counts in my opinion. Of course we all respect the parents and the little baby to choose not to be on the internet.
I made a post about your journal last week, if you have a spare moment you might come by and enjoy the comments, as everybody loves your journal of course. I so happy with it, I didn't write anything in it yet, but I viewed it about a 1000 times, still thinking what I am going to use it for, it has to be very special, you'll understand that. Thanks again Miss Sandy.
Just take your time and take care. Enjoy the weekend, hope all is well with you.

You have a true gift of bringing beauty to your blog. I enjoy it each time I visit. I always feel like I've just taken a walk through an enchanted forest when I "drop by".
Congratulations to your little granddaughter's arrival. What a blessed event!
