My Blogging Friends.   I would give you a good excuse for my blogging neglect if I had one.  After a day or two of good reasons, I find I lose motivation and think, “Oh another day off will be okay.”  So easy to do.  I’m not sure but I think I’ve been off more than a week.

So what’s what’s happened to me?

 1.  I have a new printer.  I don’t adapt well to new anythings!  Then I found it would take a week or more to get ink.  I was not a happy camper. —  Now I have ink.  But a feud came along with my computer and printer.  —  I am used to using Publisher.  But my new systems seem to like Word better.  My Word says it does not have the template I need which is a plain white sheet to write on.  That’s enough for starters.

2. I typed two posts a few days ago, on the Word Press Editor.  Don’t know what happened to them, but they went bye-bye.  The Happiness Engineer was nice but did could not find them.  Must have been me or my computer.  I have a feeling she was right because I think I lost some email that day also. 

3. I’ve been home and feeling fine.  Just too much I can’t do, I mean I really can’t. No spright-y chicken anymore. I do still “lay an egg” once in a while. See Google note at the bottom. Bet you didn’t know where that expression came from. At least, I didn’t.

4. Remember I gave you some lessons from Leviticus?  Well I read Numbers looking for ways to amaze you with more goodies.  Came up empty.  Well nearly.  Not really but I found it is well named!  Numbers of people, tribes, clans, priests, cattle, goats,  gold, silver.   Well, there are some important lessons among the numbers.  I will get to them.  I’ll tell you why you should read Numbers.   (Maybe because it is a part of God’s Word?)  I love the lesson in Chapter 14.  It is so applicable to one of today’s religious trends.  So ahead.  You can read it before I tell you. 

5.  I know I have missed some inspiring, humorous, entertaining  and educational posts and I’m sorry for that.  But with the current climate of politics, covid included, I have maintained a very relaxed blood pressure.  But I continue reading the Epoch News notifications.  And Bill O’Reilly.   That’s enough.

6. Blood pressure right now is 114/69.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, that I can roll my pressures on you.  And I have been doing that.  Got some issues, like most of you out there. 

7. That makes me think of one of those Numbers passages where Moses invites his father-in-law (?) to go with them.  Come go with us and we will treat you well for the Lord has promised good things to us.  I would say “Come go with me to Jesus, for He treats us well.” 

8. I’m going to experiment here a bit and see if I can add a small picture of the other side of my patio.

Lookie, lookie! This is the view to my right as I step down from the door. I know it looks like nothing to you tropical folks. I though of pulling up some of your pictures to claim. But, no, I’ll be honest. It doesn’t take a lot to impress us Okies. 😀 View at the top is the left as I go out. I’m happy with it also.

I have enjoyed being back with you. I think I’ll be back tomorrow.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I think your pictures are STUNNING, Here in our sub tropic natural environment your beauty inspires me to somehow tame my messy overgrown with cacti garden. During drought only cacti survived. Back to primitive we have gone.
    I love your paving. Good to see your blog too. i Enjoy knowing you too struggle with upgrades and changes in this modern world. It is six months and still the simple acquisition of a laptop for just me to work upon has confused all but WordPress.
    I Am still the same person who uses the main computer too.. The fact I use both caused WORD to freeze up. (the elderly Faye on the Faye/David computer could not be the same as the ‘fly alone’ Faye on the laptop). Some of the events have been hilarious. David received a picture of me and was asked to confirm I was also called David. I think we sorted it but the scramble was hard. Keep writing….keep thriving. You are a blessing. Thank you.

  2. Love the photo Oneta….and I totally get the fact of days passing and losing motivation! I am so glad you don’t lose yours for long!

    Love your patio!
    LOL at “laying an egg”, didn’t know that definition. 🙂
    Welcome back!

      Thank you. They say we are in for some very cold weather in the next few days. I sure hope I don’t have to do over. Glad you like my “laying an egg” contribution. Thank Google for that.

    Your patio is lovely. We have yet to start gardening projects. A little too chilly. I love the lay an egg explanation. Kind of like the theatre saying, “break a leg” actually meant take a bow or have a good show. We learn something new every day,

    • oneta hayes says:

      Lovely? That sounds really good. But, yes, I am very happy with it. Hope it makes it through the next few very cold days. I bought over a hundred dollars in flowers today, then find out what the weather holds! That is not good. The plants are in the containers in the yard for rain on them tonight. It won’t be very cold. Then they will have to wait in the garage for a few days before planting.

    Oh, my. I thought I was the only one that lost motivation when not blogging. Sometimes I really struggle when I have been off for a while. However, I know the Lord is calling me to use it as a ministry, small though it may be.
    The pictures are great and I love the view. I have a LOT to do in my yard and no(here’s that word again) motivation!

    • oneta hayes says:

      Sounds like we have the same Motivational Instructor, and, unfortunately, the same enemy. Well, RobbyeFaye, I listen around and hear wild voices that seem to be following the enemy. We better keep on our armor and un-motivate ourselves. I took a nap a while ago, then got up and told my husband I had written a blog. Problem was that I wrote it in my dream; it wasn’t on computer yet. 😀 I did put it on computer and you can see the results tomorrow. Hang in. I bought a lot of flowers yesterday but it turned too cold and wet to plant. Hope these I have out already will survive the chill bumps.

  6. So glad your blood pressure is healthy. And i love that rock path. It is beautiful!

  7. oneta hayes says:

    thank you, Stephanie. I do feel well; the blood pressure is great even through dentist’s visit this morning! 😀
