Feels so Weird

For three years I had always done a post
on Tuesdays for City Crafters.  It feels a bit weird to not
be sharing some kind of project with you.  I have been so busy
packing to really think about.  But it hit me like a ton of bricks this morning.
I am feeling a little bit teary eyed.  




I haven't even had my camera out for over a week.  These shots were taken
a couple of weeks ago.   But I must say spring is in the air here.
And also a whole lot of wind..




I just wanted to say thanks to all the gals over at
City Crafters Challenge Blog
They did a special tribute post for me.
They are the sweetest bunch a ladies and it was a pleasure
to work with them.  I am not going to say good bye to them because
I will still be blogging and visiting them.  And also that would make
me get all teary eyed once again.
Love you guys..

It is hard to move forward sometimes and you are packing up years of memories as well! When I worked full-time and then quit, what a shock it was the first few weeks. No job to go to and no pay check! I felt worthless - really I did! Now I am still worthless, but sure do love it! Hugs and smile my sweet desert friend! We had the wind as well, but not like last Monday! That was unreal!

TexWisGirl said...

Awww, come here, I'll give you a hug :) Love you too sweetie!!! Neither will we forget you and to get back to your comment on my blog: you'll not get rid of us that easily either :)
Your photos are stunning and gorgeous. A big WOW at the bee photo, what a great shot! Not only the bee itself, but also the contrasting purples in the background. Just magical.

Big hug to you dear friend,
xoxo Wendy

I am sure there is so much bittersweet involved in this, my friend, but you have such an amazing new adventure ahead of you!

I have been wanting to aks, but you answered my question. I am so glad you will still be blogging!!

yyam said...

It's always bittersweet. Especially when you get comfortable. But when one door closes, another opens. You are embarking on an exciting adventure!

Barbara said...

Beautiful light and focus.

Lynnda said...

Beautiful photo shots!!!.... I know the feeling...!! Oh well... you are still around....eh... I wish you good luck and the best on your new endeavor....hugs... xoxo

Becca said...

Wow Linda, that's an amazing shot of that bee! I tried to get this big bumble bee the other day, and it wouldn't be still for me so I got frustrated. All kinds of emotion coming your way if not already. It's all apart of your new journey. Remember how nuts I was when change was happening to me last year? You're still going to blog and connect with your friends, so don't get teary eyed...you'll have so many different things to show us!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

We are so going to missed your wonderful work at CCCB, and I am going to missed the lunches and dinners we had together, you are right, this is such a difficult time...
Well, I will be stalking you here as usual, reading about your new journey and checking out your wonderful photo shots!

See you on Wednesday......

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Gorgeous photos.... {{{hugs}}}!!!!

Sharon said...

Lovely spring shots! I love the macro of the bee!

Jeanne said...

Just stopped by so really don't know where you are going, but whatever it is, it sounds as if it will be an adventure. Best of luck to you. This bee shot is wonderful. i was out trying to shoot some bees today, and wow, what a challenge. You have a great shot... much better than what I got. best of luck to you

Sylvia said...

You will be missed, Linda, but just know that we are all here for you as you embark upon this journey! None of us like change, but your adventure will be the best ever. Every time I have moved(a lot) I have been the way you are now. It will be okay and just think of all the quality time you will have with your husband! Have a wonderful Wednesday, your photo's are fabulous!

Catherine said...

Wipe away your tears my friend. You are getting ready for an amazing adventure! I am so very envious! It's going to be fantastic!

I am wondering if you have a plan on where your travels will lead you or are you just 'going with the wind' to see where you end up?

xo Catherine

Tracy said...

It's kind of weird for me too. I'm used to your Tuesday CCCB post. That's where we became bloggie buddies. Life always comes with changes though and we'll just change with it. Hope everything's coming together well for the big move. Hugs!
