Hello to all of my friends & fans...

Although I've been logging in to DN just about every day, it probably seems like I've been m.i.a. I haven't forgotten about any of you though. I've been spending a lot of time in nature parks... and when I got a good photos, I often thought about what Groups they might fit in, and who might like certain ones. :)

I was going to write a journal entry to go with these wallpapers but I just don't have the energy to do it. I've had a rough day. I unexpectedly had to go to my dentist with a hurting tooth, and the appointment took a lot out of me. I'm now on an antibiotic for it.

On top of that, my son, his expectant wife, and two young children all got Covid 19. They've been very careful so it's a mystery as to how they got it. They were pretty miserable for awhile, but they are finally starting to do better. My husband and I had to cancell our plans and go into quarantine for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend; we'd been with them before they knew they had it. Fortunately, both of us tested negative so we are in the clear. whew!

I hope you are all well, and have more energy than my family and I currently do. You can be thankful that you don't live here right now. As I write this, Michigan is the worst state in the U.S.A. for new Covid cases. Our hospitals are very full and the medical people are exhausted. I don't know how they manage to keep going.

Please...take care of yourselves... and stay safe. I have a dear friend who lost her senses of taste and smell 8 months ago and still hasn't gotten them back. Three of my friends went on ventilators and one of them did not pull through. Stay as far away from Covid 19 as you possibly can! You'll be a lot happier that way.


Elaine :)

PS. It's been the nature walks that have been keeping me going. Get out in the woods if you can, listen to birdsong, and watch for movements in the trees. I spot so many woodpeckers, squirrels, and deer that way...! It is a very rejuvenating way to spend your time. I wish I could take some of you with me on my walks... The best I can do is to show you some of the plants and animals that have given me so much joy. Spoiler Alert: I've just gotten some of my best deer photos ever...2 or 3 of them will be in my next batch of DN uploads. :D

PPS. If you need prayer for anything in your life, let me know. Thanks to the pandemic, I've been learning a lot about prayer, and have been praying more than I have in many years.

Hello everyone!

If you think that it's been a long time since I visited your profile, you are absolutely right. I haven't been doing much visiting�here since the end of March. One thing that I have been doing, however, is logging into DN a�couple of times a day so that people here wouldn't worry about me.�

My state of Michigan went into lockdown on March 15th. Because I am in a high risk category, (heart attack last December among other things) I take lockdown very seriously. My husband started doing all of the grocery shopping. I stopped going to any stores. I either worked (part time because business is down) or stayed at home. It didn't take long for me to start feeling stir crazy.�

Then I rediscovered an old love of mine. Nature.�I started going to a nature center near my house with my camera in tow. The center itself was closed, but the trails were not. I walked those trails, sat on benches, listened, observed, and started taking photos. I've taken several thousand photos since March, and have no plans of slowing down anytime soon. I've photographed trees, trails, birds, deer, wildflowers, squirrels, insects, and more.

I've been to at least 6 Nature Centers now. The wallpapers I uploaded today (even the blue Chevy wallpaper!) are from 3 different ones that I've been to recently.�

I feel so much calmer and happier than I used to. Trail walking or even just sitting outdoors and listening is wonderful medicine. Give it a try and you won't be sorry!

I hope to start getting more active here again. I have ideas for 2 nature groups that I haven't yet seen on DN. I actually meant to start those 2 groups a month ago though, and it didn't happen.:P� If and when I finally do, I will let you know. :)

Thank you for not giving up on me. There've been many days when I've desperately needed to walk the trails and let the computer go. With the way that things are happening in our troubled world, I'll likely continue to need the trails very much. I'll try not to be as much of a stranger though. You might be surprised at how much I think of many of you as I walk!

May God bless you all and keep you safe.


Elaine :)

Wow... You logged in!!! :D

I didn't think I'd ever get to meet you after all of this time. Thank you for fanning me!

CollieSmile/Elaine :)

PS. I just had a look at the posts I left on your profile over the years... most of them don't have the wallpapers I originally posted. Desktop Nexus had a major crash in 2015 and had to move to another server. Everybody's wallpapers "popped" and it took them awhile to restore them. (There was another crash in 2018 also.) Anyway, here is one of the wallpapers that I probably posted for you... hope you like it. :)

From the suffering and mercy of Jesus Christ:

to the astounded joy of His followers when death could not keep him in the ground...

We celebrate Easter because Jesus is alive!

May you, your friends, and your family have a blessed, special and joyous Easter celebration!

I can think of many so people on DN who are going through some rough times right now. I've heard from many of you. And I am one of them myself.

If you are sad or struggling right now, I hope that this wallpaper with it's description and song links will encourage you. If you are doing well, that is great! Maybe you can send this wallpaper to someone who needs it.

I have been having trouble finding time for Desktop Nexus lately, because there has been so much turmoil in my life. But I love it on DN. I am determined stay active on this wonderful website!

I think this wallpaper is my way of looking at all of my troubles--- and punching them in the nose. In other words I'm fighting back!

Let's hang in there, everybody!

CollieSmile/Elaine :D

Hi Buck,

I do hope that you come back on line sometime... I have fanned you, but I've never met you! lol God bless you. :)

A lot of my life from the past 3 weeks is contained in these 3 new wallpaper's descriptions...especially the Thank you wall! I am so glad to be back on Nexus! :D

Elaine :)

CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   7/27/12 at 4:39pm
Hi Buck,

It's CollieSmile again. I hope you don't mind if I fan you. :) I am a Christian also... I've been happily married and equally yoked for 29 years.:D I read your profile, and I like a lot of the same music as you do.

My husband and I know a wonderful signed version of Amazing Grace-My Chains are Gone. We do it in an American Sign Language Choir. Neither of us are deaf, but we love ASL and have a heart for deaf people. We have a lot of deaf friends.

I love making wallpaper, I make all of my own designs. I want to do so many kinds! I want to do more Bible verses, and I hope to make some ASL (American Sign Language) designs too. So many things I want to make and not enough time in the day! But it is a pleasant problem to have. :D

Take care, and God Bless!

CollieSmile :)
