it's just a phase...


I can't believe it was at this time 2 years ago,
Rosebud pier was getting a long anticipated make-over...
Even a couple of seagulls seemed to be taking a passing interest...

For a little longer, I have to delve into my archives for photos here...
I have an abcess - horribly painful - like an intrusion - on my ankle bone
and I'm supposed to keep off my foot...
This has been going on for many weeks...
Love seeing the doctor twice a week to get it dressed after school hours...very entertaining...
But I can only stay off the foot at weekends... Impossible as a teacher during the week...
So my photo collection is feeling rather frozen at the moment...
Little opportunity to get out PLUS it's stressful report time and marking...

Did I mention I have flu as well?

I'm sure all this excitement will pass eventually and life will level out into some kind of routine...

Meanwhile...

Sighhhhhhhhhh....

turning point...




Not often do I indulge in a sad post, but this is to be one of those rare occasions...
You may have noticed I have not been posting here for about a week...
But I have been drowning in mid year report writing and marking for secondary students...

And there is more...

I have decided it is time to let go some of the memes I run...
Monday Mellow Yellows
Scenic Weekends
Wednesday Waters
as well as ones I share with MMT (but she is going to continue the following ones for awhile)...
Shadow Shot Sunday 2
Ruby Tuesday Too
Macro Monday 2
Some of these memes have been running for almost 6 years...a long time...
(And each post always includes a photo relevant to the meme...)

The sadness involves the feeling that I am becoming just a robotic convenienece...
Always there for participants to drop their links...
Many regulars barely comment...
Some participants have never commented on my meme post...

Even today, my last post for Monday Mellow Yellows...
Participants have linked up and not a comment...
Not a word...
Not a thanks...

It hurts...


I do know the meme world is fading these days...
But still...
For those who still connect...
It would be so nice to be noticed...


The autumn leaves in the photo above seem to embody some element of all the memes I have run..
Just a little nostalgia...


deep breath
eyes to the stars

Pig and Whistle...


back in 2010, this is what the outdoors area looked like
at the Pig and Whistle restaurant, Main Ridge...


It was looking a little shabby, but it had potential...
See views of it now HERE...
