The Delinquent Blogger

I wish I had a good excuse as to why I haven't blogged much lately. We were gone. Then gone again. Then back for six days and now I'm leaving for the third time. It has all been good, but hectic and I am feeling some of the effects. I was late with my Somerset Studios column for the first time ever. I have found that I am forgetting things that I would normally remember. I am also kind of snappy to those I love, mainly poor John who is around me the most. I don't like it when I act like this.
Truth be known, I said yes to a few too many things. I thought I had learned that 'how to say no' lesson a few years back, but apparently not.
Anyhoo, here I am, trying to get packed for Art Unraveled, doing laundry, shuffling paperwork, eating aimlessly (yeah, that's what I do when I get nervous), etc, etc.
But here right now I am going to stop whining. Enough already.
Here is a collage mosaic of photos I took at the Missouri Botanical Garden last week. There is an unreal lantern festival there. If you are anywhere close to St. Louis, get your behind over here cause it is really cool. These are just a sampling of my unedited photos. Looking at them makes me smile and I can see a new series developing right before my eyes.


  1. you're only proving you are human! I,too, can see a series developing when you have time!

  2. You're right there with the rest of us-wondering where the time goes-living life. Enjoy it.

  3. Beautiful colors. Makes one long for southern France doesn't it. The quiet calm. The peacefulness. Xoxo

  4. blame it on the heat! :)

  5. Don't be so hard on yourself, MB. We are human. You can't do it all.. you're trying to but eventually, something will have to give. Take a deep breath and take it a step at a time.. If you can't blog, then so be it.. we understand... and then in October, at "Art is.. in CT.. you get to meet me. Weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
