Photography: Seeking Solace in Summer Gardens (Post #3)

I know I’ve been quiet lately.  The kids were all sick for over a week (fortunately not all at the same time) but instead spread out so that each of them complained about dying 🙂  Somehow, I was fortunate enough not to get sick, despite all their effort in coughing and sneezing all over me, leaving tissues all around the house and the like.  It was a “fun” two weeks, not to mention our first two weeks back to school.  I had a hard time convincing them to work on anything.


My youngest child turned to me as serious as he could be and stated “I’m ruined.”  He had such a sad look in his eyes.  I sat next to him and said, “Why?”  He explained “I’m sick and I can’t go out to play.  I am ruined!”  So, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining because it wasn’t as bad as that for me.


Anyway, being that we were stuck in the house for a few weeks now, I have not gotten a chance to fix my camera.  I’m not sure if I mentioned that she is broken already or not, but I have missed getting out and taking pictures.  This weekend was our first opportunity to get out of the house and though I took some pictures, they are all with my smartphone and I just don’t get the images I truly adore.  I’m hoping to get the camera fixed soon, but you’d be glad to know I have plenty of pictures from our previous visits to share.  I hope you enjoy them!

    1. It’s okay – I think we usually have a pretty good time of it. The kids don’t get sick often and when they do, they get sick and better in a day or two. This one was more difficult but eventually it did pass (and thankfully forget me!) I’m just glad we can get back into the swing of things. I truly hate being behind in their work 🙂

  1. I’m thrilled you’re back, though sorry everyone was ill. I’ve missed you, very much. You’re such a delight, you’re always positive and you are a dear woman. Your words mean more than mine could ever convey. Love your writing, it so speaks to who you are!


    1. Oh, you are such a sweetheart Phyllis 🙂 I have missed you as much as you have missed me. I felt guilty for not being on, but I know that I’m doing the right thing being there for the kiddos. I just missed being “in my own thoughts” for a few bare seconds as there weren’t any left!

      So glad they are well and they did not get me sick too. Phew. That was a close one! I hope you are doing well and all your computer problems are solved. I know it has been difficult for you, but I am truly amazed at your dedication!


      1. Awe thank you. It’s important to me, as are you, I’ve been fortunate at finding such a wonderful woman as you and others here. I’m relieved you didn’t get sick, and absolutely your first priority is your children, that goes without saying or question. And it’s most admirable. Being a mom is a most important job,I think the most important in the world.


        1. I agree with you on motherhood. Such a task! I look at my little blessings though and I would do it all over again and again and again. My son is now begging for a brother. Are you kidding?!? Um no. He does not get it. He wants someone to play with around the house too. I told him the problem is that when he gets a bit bigger, his brother would be begging for a little brother… and the next one… and the next one! Love them to pieces but now I’m just going to enjoy watching them grow 🙂


    1. Oh, I’m just glad it is over. It’s not that they were very sick… it was just prolonged and I needed to get them to finish their schoolwork. They were not in the mood and I can’t blame them, but we still had deadlines 🙂 So glad you liked the photos! Thanks.


  2. Well, it’s pretty amazing how such a convenient device can still take pretty amazing photos! They’re still gorgeous! Glad you didn’t get sick and hope everyone is recovering. 😊~Anne


    1. So very true. I have no complaints against the phone, it just doesn’t see the same as my camera. Funny thing is, my camera is relatively new to me, but somehow we have gotten along famously 🙂 So glad you liked them and yes – everyone is finally better!
