New Blog….Wandering Spirits At Home
I don’t know if the link will work. I hope so but if not if you go to
the blog does seem to be showing up now.
The reason I don’t know if the link will work is because I can’t test it until I post this blog.
Once you get to the blog, on the right side near the top there is a button to click on to sign up for the blog to come to your email.
Just click it and follow the instructions, and then when I post a blog, it SHOULD show up in your email box. I also always try to post it on my FB page.
Pictures are random today.
It’s hard being a computer pre-schooler….and even though I’ve had a computer of some sort for about 21 years now, I seem to make little to no progress at learning the ways of the internet. When I do something right, it’s usually an accident. Then, since I didn’t realize what I was doing it’s likely I won’t be able to repeat it…until it happens again by accident. After a series of happy accidents, I may possibly learn something.
I marvel at friends who understand the workings of these things…
California Poppies. So pretty.
There are a couple of loose ends I’d like to tie up here on this blog…things I’ve mentioned before and didn’t follow up on.
Yes, I’m moving, but NO, I’m not abandoning Mary’s house. I’m housesitting and that hasn’t changed. I’ll be here on just about a daily basis, checking up on things, taking care of the cat-that-adopted-Mary, watering yard and flowers, and doing yard work. This is a GOOD thing, since I need to keep super busy right now.
The other thing….remember my friend Jo, who passed away not long ago? I missed her celebration of life because I didn’t know she had died, and I was so relieved that I would be able to attend her Military Ceremony that was going to be held at the new Fort Ord Veterans cemetery.
Shiloh, Jo, and Joy.
Well, I didn’t go after all, because it turned out that it was held on the same day that Shiloh needed to leave for the spirit world, even within the same hour.
It broke my heart not to be there, but I know that Jo, of all people, would understand. I’ve since been able to go there and find where her ashes are resting and it’s a beautiful place. It’s a very small cemetery….silent, peaceful, and in the hills that overlook the ocean. Jo, from Kansas, was stationed at Fort Ord as a nurse, many long years ago. She too, fell in love with with this area and lived close by it for the rest of her life. She knew the trails and after Fort Ord closed she walked her dogs there, and taught me some of the walks and trails. Some right up by where the cemetery sits now. She spoke of her hope that the cemetery here would be open and in use by the time she needed it. I’m so glad that worked out. I can see me having some nice talks with her where her ashes are resting, in the future. Just like old times…
An amazing sunset I witnessed in Arizona. Wow. Just Wow.
I’ll continue to post here to redirect to the new blog. Still working on getting the bugs out of that one. If you happen to go there and see something weird, it’s probably because I’m trying to fix something. I have corrected a couple things I didn’t like. Still, it seems the very first blog that shows up was put there by wordpress, not by me. Something about “The Journey Begins. It’s only one sentence though. My first actual post there is called “An Introduction All Over Again”.
If you want to sign up for Wandering Spirits At Home and you are having problems, if you comment here, I will try to help….in my internet DUH sort of way!
