Moving Right Along........

Hi blog friends!  Just wanted to let everyone know that for the near future you  can find me on facebook, pinterest or intstagram.  Blogger is acting wonky and I can't figure out what to do about it, so I've decided that I need to think about moving to wordpress or just sticking with instagram as a way to share my photos.   I will leave this blog open for now, because my other social media links are at the top of the page.  I'll still be updating my genealogy site, and the two ArGenWeb sites I run for USGenWeb.  And I think I have found most all of you on facebook or insta and will be following as always.  Thanks for sticking with me through my ups and downs and also through the death of my mother, which as most of you know has really changed the way I look at life.  

Always seeking the joy, wherever I can find it. 
See you on instagram or facebook, and if not there, I will still follow you on your blog!

Spring Colors: Sparks #6

I love purple!

Make a wish! 


First time I have seen a banded goose 


After the storm- a double rainbow


Vacation to Branson & Springfield

Finding Nemo is one of my favorite kid movies :)

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul- 
and sings the tunes without the words- 
and never stops at all.

 Emily Dickinson 

This quote just grabbed me today- probably because I have been watching entirely too many news-opinion shows and I sure can't find any hope for our country there- so I turn to nature because therein lies the heart of hope.
