Where have the past few months gone? It seems like just a few days ago that I watched the squirrels investigate the jack-0-lantern I recruited Don to carve for them.
They immediately decided to “customize” their pumpkin. They chewed the tooth halfway off and made the mouth larger. Then their investigations got a little more invasive!
I worried that the babies would get ambushed by the bigger squirrels while eating like this but I underestimated their resourcefulness.
The babies climbed inside and honked so aggressively at all approaching squirrels that none dared to bother them!
It was a lot of fun to watch.
And then Halloween passed by, then Thanksgiving. Then Christmas came and went and now the new year is upon us.
2016 was a year of small changes for me. I abandoned all radio stations that play new music and became a classic rock person. I had my below-shoulder-length hair cut into an above-shoulder-length bob. I kind of lost interest in one hobby – photography – and discovered another – journaling. Now instead of waiting for decent weather to try to get out to search for photo subjects, I sit down at my desk and play with distress inks, stamps and stencils to create pages to journal on.
My change in hobbies leaves me wondering what to do with this blog. Quite honestly, blogging, and all it involves, has become very overwhelming for me. And, when things are overwhelming, I avoid them. Right now I’m leaning toward pulling the plug on this blog and just attempting to check in with everyone from time to time. Or, I could do once a month updates or something. Or, I could start a new blog. I don’t know. I don’t plan on completely deleting my WordPress account, so I won’t disappear entirely.
Whatever the new year brings to Shedding Light, I hope it brings you much happiness!
