My new *Love*....... ,-)

(Pictures in this post, were taken, on our walk...)
 If you read here frequently, you know I am not a fan of all the "New Techy Stuff" which comes along.  I do quite well, with blogging.  And that has not changed.  I.  Still.  Love.  Blogging.
.
But I do admit to having fallen in love with Instagram.  For what it provides.  An enjoyable addition, to blogging.
.
On Instagram, you can roam the world, one photo at a time.  Whatever you happen to enjoy, or wish to learn more about, etc., there are Instagrams on the topic. 
.
And I never have to be a dreaded LURKER !!!!!  I can leave a quick comment.  Or I can click on the little 'heart'...  To show I read and liked.  And the number of these little 'heart likes', shows up, right under the Instagram picture.    
.
.
And to "do" Instagram, just put up a photo, with a few words of description, and that's it!!!!  "Easy-as-pie"  :-)  And that's my story, for today.  :-)

a glorious riot of color blazing red across the moors
and gleaming every shade of gold in the forests
of sheltered glens."

Mother Nature is tricky.....

Mother Nature is tricky.....  I had just gotten into the Welcome Autumn mode...  And she throws hot, hot weather at us again.  ,-))))))))
.
.
Seeeee????  Autumn....   -chuckle-

Guess that just means, more time for slow living.  'Cause who can bustle-about, in left-over heat?  ,-)

September days are here,
With summer's best of weather
And autumn's best of cheer."

Knocking, knocking, on the door...

disclaimer:  have sore finger, which prevents me from touch-typing...  which means i have to "hunt & peck" with less than all fingers.  so, for the meantime, no caps here.

for those of us, who live in the northern hemisphere,  september is knocking on the door.  'lady autumn' is also knocking on the door.  not that either, need to do so.  "the wheel of the year" has been turning for ages.  no modern technology has been found, to circumvent this.

so when they knock, we must accept them, graciously.  well, it's wise to do so.  and i am very ready.  i also know that some of you, are not ready.  some want to hold onto summer, for as long as possible.  :-)  and that's fine too...

to me, it seems, that when it is time-for-me-to-love-the-changing-of-a-season, i am happy with it.  but not until then.  and perhaps it's that way, with most people.  so we each, follow our own feelings.
