autumn 139

this is my 570 th blog

and 3rd anniversary

there has been much learning and several surprises along the way

the best is discovering kindred spirits and new friends

” Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”     Emerson 

ever onward

      Kerry – it became quicker and easier fairly quickly and as I made blogging friends it became more important. I’ve also learned many new tricks and fibre facts.
