A Bird's Eye View

Of our world for the next couple weeks is much less peaceful than this image!

I truly hate to do this. However, I just don't see anyway around it. Walter, my husband, sees his DR. and will get set for surgery first thing this upcoming week. We are putting up 300 feet of fence to accommodate our new puppy. He arrives here tomorrow and is only 7 weeks old.

There are also a few other things going on that are making it virtually impossible for me to keep up right now. Walter is after me about not getting enough rest by trying to do everything here at home and keep up here on the blog. 

I simply am not able to keep up with everything. I am officially on break starting now. I am so so grateful to all of my wonderful friends and I miss you all so very much. But, Walter's surgery involves two hernias which are in pretty bad shape and he really needs me to his wife right now and help him! Oh, did I mention we are also having our house painted? Well, we are! I am overwhelmed with real life activity and truly need to take care of my home and family right now!

I'll see everyone as much as possible and as soon as possible!
~God bless and love and peace to all!~

  1. Take a break and take care of Walter and your home. That's more important than anything right now. We all understand about life's little pressures that build up from time to time.

    Have a terrific day honey. I'll see you when I see you. Big hugs. ☺

  5. This looks like a hawk in the tree. I am so sorry everything is all happening at once!! Life has a way of doing that. We will be here waiting, your husband needs you more than we do!! Phil had hernia surgery long ago when they did not do it laproscopicly. After that, he didn't sneeze for NINE days!! How did I miss your post below?? Hey, we are birdwatchers of over 30 years! Welcome to the fun world of birdwatchers! Don't feel bad, even I do not know the name of the other birds, only the killdeer. But keep up the great bird pictures, have you started a life list yet? Prayers for your husband, and try and find some quiet restful time each day for yourself!

  8. Dear Jackie, blogging is just a hobby, not an obligation. We will be waiting for the good news of your husband's surgery. I have two hernias that make me terribly suffer from time to time. Therefore, I understand very well how serious and important this surgery is for your husband's well being. I wish you both good luck, healthy and happy days.

  14. Oh do take care and come back only when you feel you really can. We'll miss you terribly.

    My husband had double hernia surgery a few years back - I spent a LOT of time sitting beside his bed keeping him company - and while I did, I sorted 37 years of photographs into albums. I'm so happy to have digital now.

  23. I think we've all taken a blog break at some point due to life's demands. You do have a lot on your plate. Hope the surgery goes well, the puppy is easily housebroken, and the painting process is smooth. Take care.

  38. "Expression Needed" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

    P.S.: I have been trying to wait until you came back before doing that, but in all fairness, I have been demanding of Him to hurry up and give me more patience for quite some time now. (LOL?) By the way, weren't there a bunch of comments left here?
