Hi Everybody,

Things have been crazy for me lately! It's hard for me to believe that these are the first wallpapers I've uploaded since August 21st! I was afraid that I wouldn't get any walls up this September.

It felt so good upload these just before before October 1st hit. Especially since in Michigan, where I live, a new day/date on Desktop Nexus starts at 8pm, my time!

As some of you know, I have been getting onto DN in bits and snatches, mostly to comment on wallpapers. Especially on Cow Wallpapers! Black & white cows, brown cows, cows on mountains, cows jumping over moons, cows on farms, a cow family in a rowboat, a cow riding a motorcycle! I never know what kind of a cow is going to come down the pike next! It's hard to believe that just a little over a month ago the Cow group only had a dozen wallpapers in it! Thank you everybody who has contributed to this group! It has now started it's 6th page! :D

So what's been keeping me off of DN? Part of it is that I got spoiled, I guess. I got used to having lots more time for DN because of my broken foot and being in a wheelchair. Now that I'm mobile and back to work, much of the time I had for DN is gone. If only I could fit more hours into my day!

In spite of all of that, I know I have so much to be thankful for. It is so good to be able to get around again. I've been taking all kinds of photos, mostly nature ones. Also I've made a new friend at work who breeds and shows Pekinese dogs.

My top favorite breed is (you guessed it!) collies, but it's fun to get to know another breed. I went to a Pekingese specialty show to help my friend out earlier today. When those little long haired dogs enter the show ring, they look so funny-- like furry caterpillars running around! I took a few photos of them, some of which I hope to upload to Desktop Nexus.

DN is one of my favorite places to be, and I'm going to keep right on trying to figure out how to get more time up here. I don't give up easily! :D

Elaine :)

PS. Thank you to all of you who've been dropping by my profile page, & commenting on my wallpapers... even though some of you have probably been wondering where I've been at! :D

Hi Everybody! :D

I hope you are all doing well, and having a good Summer (or Winter, depending on where you live.) The drought seems to be coming to an end in Michigan, we are finally getting some rain. There are more patches of green than brown in my lawn for the first time since early May!

Unfortunately, a lot of the Southern USA is getting Too Much Rain... I hope all of you that live down South are managing to hang in there & stay afloat. I've been praying for you & I'm sure others have also.

Speaking of my greener lawn brings cows to mind...grazing cows, that is. But actually, I don't get to hang around with cows much, since I don't live in farm country. The closest that I get to cows is when I make it to a Fair. I love fairs, and the farm animals are my favorite part!

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll get to a fair this year. Although I'm walking on my newly healed foot, I still don't have much stamina for walking or standing very long. The cow walls below are actually from a Fair that I went to 2 years ago.

Last month I happened to drop in on DN's Cow Group. I was amazed, and saddened to see that there were only 12 wallpapers in it! The last time one was added (one of mine) was in 2014. (There are now 16 wallpapers as I've just added 4 more.)

So....welcome to Cow Group Open House/Invitation Day! :D

I've been checking around & see that many of you have cow/cattle walls you could add to this group. In fact, I may drop by some profiles and point out some you could add... I've seen some really neat ones! Don't wait for me to ask you though... feel free to join now! :)


I hope you feel mooooooved to join up. Have a beautiful day, and keep an eye out for cows! If you spot any, herd them straight into the cow group! :D

Hi Everybody,

I've come by to say hello... and to report that I feel like I just burst through the sound barrier...or something like that...:P I've finally uploaded my first wallpapers since early in June. One thing after another kept getting in the way!

I've also finally written a journal post, been wanting to do that for a while too. Here it is:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal /winging-it-12053/

If you are an American, have a Happy 4th of July! If you are not, I hope you live in a country that has a holiday just like it to celebrate!:D

Hi Everybody,

I'm dropping by to wish you a safe & thoughtful Remembrance Day/Memorial Day Holiday. :) Even if this isn't your country's day to remember those who gave their lives in battle, you will want to look at the wallpaper description to my poppy wallpaper, below. I learned some things about poppies and their special meaning for people all over the world-- thanks to a Canadian poet who fought in World War 1.

If it seems like I've been a little scarce up here lately, it's not your imagination. My foot is well enough now that I've been able to return back to work. I've written a short journal entry about that: here is the link to it if you are interested:

https://my.desktopnexus.com/CollieSmile/journal /getting-back-to-normal-11811/

In Michigan, we've been having beautiful weather lately. Now that I can finally walk around in my yard again, I've taken advantage of that with my camera. I've been snapping all sorts of Spring pictures. I missed almost 2 whole seasons thanks to being confined to my wheelchair, so I guess I'm trying to make up for lost time!

I hope that you are enjoying good weather wherever you live. Have a beautiful week!

Elaine :)

Hi Everybody,

I just wanted you to know that today I drove my car for the first time since my accident in October. It went fine.

Also, it looks like I'll be going into work tomorrow and seeing how it goes. On one hand I feel torn because working will mean less time for Desktop Nexus. (Which is why I went into a wallpaper uploading frenzy, today, I guess.)

On the other hand, I have been feeling somewhat restless & sort of wondering what it would be like to go back to a more normal life. As much as I love my collie, there are times when I think we've been getting on each others nerves a bit.

I hope all is well with you. Have a peaceful & blessed Sunday... :D

Elaine :)

I spotted this smile on somebody's profile... and I caught the smile bug! It's very contagious! Pass it on to someone you care about. Wouldn't it be nice to see all of Desktop Nexus smiling today? :D :D :D

Have a cheerful day! :D

PS. If you go to someone's profile and the smile is already there, just leave it again anyway. The more smiles a person has, the better off they are! :D :D :D :D :D

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/25/16 at 12:09am
Guess what!?!

I am

....exactly 4 years on Desktop Nexus!

If I hadn't joined DN 4 years ago today, we wouldn't even know each other! How long have you been a member? Put it in the wallpaper comments, if you'd like!

Have a fantastic day! :D

Elaine :)

PS. I've been coming around quite a bit lately, I know. I'll be returning to work soon, I'm not sure quite when... I won't have as much time on DN, when that happens--so I guess I'm living it up while I can. :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/23/16 at 1:52am

Greetings, Everyone! :D

It's Springtime in North America, and it's finally starting to show up more. Tiny leaves are just starting to unfurl on the maple tree in my back yard. Flowers are blooming; everything from dandelions to daffodils. Often I can sit out in the yard without a jacket.

I hope you are having delightful weather wherever you live. I know that south of the equator, you are getting into the Fall season. My wish for you are beautiful Autumn leaves and good walking weather.

(By the way, guess how I learned that it's Fall south of the equator? From all of you Aussies on DN! :D)

Wherever you live, have a lovely day, and a great weekend! :D

Elaine :)

PS. I've written a new journal entry about wobbly walking, working...(?) and a special anniversary I'll be celebrating this Sunday.


CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/18/16 at 7:30pm
Uh-oh....WATCH OUT! I think a giant Monday-Brightening TRAIN-BOW is headed your way...Augh! I Can't stop it! VAROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM.................................

....oh well....Pick your favorite color and hang on... or just let it choo choo on by.... :P :)

Whatever else you do, have a marvelous day! :D :D :D

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/12/16 at 10:57pm
Hi Tracy,

I hope you are doing well, and are at peace with the weather in your part of the world. I say that because it's supposed to be Spring here in Michigan. Well, 2 days ago we got an inch of snow that actually stayed on the ground! Thank goodness it finished melting away the next day. It's acting like Springtime here once again.:)

I've been thinking in rainbows lately. I have a tendency to throw every pretty color I can into one wall, but this time, I decided to do something different.

I'm giving each primary color it's own wallpaper this time. I'll soon be adding aqua-blue, blue, purple, & other colors to this "lacy" set.

Of the "lacies" that I've uploaded so far, this green wallpaper is my top favorite.

I like it the best because I'm finding it to be therapeutic! It has a vast 3 dimensional quality that the other 3 color-walls lack. When it's on my computer screen, I find it very soothing & calming, kind of like being deep in a quiet forest. Maybe it will have the same effect on you. :)

The 2 "black & blue" wallpapers aren't part of the "lacy" set. This one, however means a lot to me.

I named it "My Shiny New Shoe(s)," in part, because I just got a new pair. The shoes are to help me start walking again with my newly healed right foot. I did not deliberately try to make a "shoe abstract" but I was thrilled when a shoe "showed up" while I was designing this wallpaper! :D

This wall ties in with my latest journal entry. It's about starting walking again--and running into some unexpected dilemnas while I do so!


If you are dealing with health challenges of any kind, I think you'll appreciate it. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who is dealing with or has dealt with the perplexities of trying to heal. In fact, if you have your own "trying to heal/get back to normal" story, I would love to read it. :)

May you have a bright color-filled day...& be able to find at least one thing to smile about. :D

Elaine :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   3/26/16 at 1:04am
Hi Tracy,

I'm coming your way with Easter greetings that are just a little bit different this year.

I sent all of you Easter greetings last year, but most of you never got to see them. Just a few hours after I left them on your profile, the big Desktop Nexus crash took place. Any DN wallpapers that had been posted on Profiles before the crash vanished.

Of course I was dissappointed. I seriously considered deleting the 2 walls and simply re-uploading them for this year...but somehow, I just couldn't.

Instead, I've made simple variations on them this year. (Links to the walls that I made last year are in each of them.)

So Happy Easter, for LAST YEAR & for THIS YEAR too!

Elaine :)

PS. Three cheers for Desktop Nexus being up and running again! Desktop Nexus is a Giant blessing in my life. Without DN, I would not have had the pleasure of getting to know you!!!

DN is my Happy Place, and I'm sure that it is for many if not most of you also!
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D
