Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

End of the Blogging Season of My Life

My first blog was called 'Seasons of Violet'. The intent was to write about the different seasons of my life as they happened, like an online diary.

Then I discovered knitting blogs and started 'Stitches of Violet'. It was wonderful. I 'met' so many like minded, friendly people and enjoyed almost a decade of posting about knitting, dogs, granddaughters, and birds.

Now I have moved into a new 'Season'. There is little time for knitting, all my dogs are waiting at the Rainbow Bridge, one granddaughter is now an adult, and the birds I enjoyed are left behind for someone else to feed in Paw Paw/Almena, Michigan.

This is a happy, busy season with my new husband. We have places to go, things to do while we're still able and I have no desire to blog them.

The blogging 'Season' of my life is over.

Blessings to everyone who reads this.

An Experiment

As the days go by without writing a blog post, I find myself writing blog posts in my head. I am too busy, which then results in being too tired, to sit at my laptop and do the writing.

This is being written on my phone. It's an experiment to find out if I can write blog thoughts on my phone and edit them later  and add pictures before publishing.

What kind of picture goes in a post about writing a post?

How about a picture of Jay, my husband?  Because sometimes I act like a teenager in love.

The above picture was loaded in from my phone. Even thought it's a small picture, Blogger has it looking huge. I am not sure how to deal with this.

Now I'm on my laptop finishing up this experiment, and will add another picture just to make sure it can be done.
That worked much better.

Nest step: Google ways to add pictures with my phone after looking to see if the picture of Jay's head looks better after I publish. I have no reason to think it will even though he's not at fault.
