Hello and Welcome to the newcomers as well as those folks who have been with me awhile. I am once again active on the web :) My self-imposed exile is over lol. I do tend to keep closer to home and hearth in the winter season and some years it just seems to take me longer to get back into the swing of things online and off -- one of the penalties/pleasures of living in semi-isolation out here in the back country I suppose.
We had a colder than usual winter this past year and even had a snowfall in February. I know, nothing unusual about snowfall right? Except for the fact that I currently live in Florida!! Here are some photos I took to document this rare event ;)
I also had the most splendid company in the form of a pair of wrens and their chicks when they nested in the Witch House (my office/library) this Spring. It was incredible to sit at my desk and watch the parents coming to and fro with worms, bugs and other delectable items for the chicks they raised. They were less than 5 feet away from me and I felt quite privileged to be a spectator on the sidelines as the little chicks hatched, grew and eventually fledged. They all left the nest on the eve of Mother's Day and they still come to visit and perch atop the door-jamb on occasion.
I've also been in the process of playing musical computers...to explain, my son purchased a new computer and I inherited his laptop. My husband inherited my old computer and we've been moving files from one to the other and getting them all organized etc.. I didn't have a cable to directly connect the comps together (which would have made things immensely easier) so I found a handy tool online to use to help. It's called DropBox, check them out by clicking here, you may find them as useful as I did!
Now that I've just about gotten this new laptop configured the way I want it I can begin compiling the old HedgeWytchery site into a .pdf document. I've still got some clean-up and some editing to do so it will take a few days to complete this project. I'll post an announcement here when it is ready and provide a link to my Scribd page where I'll store the .pdf document for ease in downloading or reading online.
I'm also working on another project, an actual book, with pages and everything ;)! This project will take a little longer to complete and the book should be ready by Autumn hopefully. I'll post more information about this as it becomes available. I'm really excited that my son is collaborating by doing the illustrations and will post some examples of his work later for you to enjoy.
That's it for now, take care -- see you 'round the Milky Way!
