PS. Every time I go to a Tim Horton's, I think of you. Miss you, my dear friend...

Hi Betsey,

I hope you are happy and well. I'm sure you're already enjoying this season & are looking forward to Christmas day itself. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you've likely already seen your first snow. I rediscovered something today; it's no fun to drive in, but sure is beautiful to look at! :D

It was a little hard for me to say goodbye to Autumn. Not only did we get less leaf colors than usual, we didn't get any snow in my area until 4 days ago! Usually I see snow by mid November, or at least by Thanksgiving.

We got about 2 inches of snow today; the most we've had in one day so far. Now that my yard is white, it finally looks like Winter outside. :)

My first 3 wallpaper designs are made entirely of Autumn leaves. My last one is made from one Autumn leaf, some orange & white berries, a shrub, and some snow that I added in. It's my first Christmas wallpaper of the year. (Most of you seem to be way ahead of me as far as that goes.) My Christmas Tree wall was the most fun to make, and it's definitely the snowiest one of the four. :)

Joyful greetings to a beautiful & meaningful season! Desktop Nexus is one of the best places to enjoy this season in my happy opinion.:D

Snowy Hugs,

Elaine :)

It's Thanksgiving in the USA today... so I'm running around DN counting my blessings. And guess what? You are one of them!:D

Hugs,

Elaine :)

Hi Everybody,

I hope that you've had a nice Summer (or a nice Winter if you live south of the Equator!):)

It's been so long since I've gone profile hopping, almost 2 months! Time really got away from me... Part of the reason is that my husband and I finally went on a real vacation for the first time in years. Yes, we've done some weekend getaways, but you can only drive so far in one weekend... and you have to allow time to get back. lol

We ended up driving through the states of Ohio and Indiana. We deliberately chose country roads. We stopped at a lot of antique stores, among other things, and got to go to a County Fair in Ohio. A lot of the photos I took will end up on DN sooner or later, especially Cow photos for the Cows group!:D

The wallpapers that I uploaded today, however, are from my home state of Michigan. I took nearly 40 pictures of goldenrod! It was hard to choose the ones to upload!

At this point you are probably wondering why in the world I took so many photos of one kind of plant. Yes it's a beautiful plant, but 40 photos of it? Well-- the reason I did is--- THE BUGS! Not only do many varieties of insect love goldenrod... but they are beautiful as well.

I have only one regret about uploading these photos. I wish that I had brightened up the photos more so the insects would show up better in the small thumbnails. Oh well... at least it's easier to see them when they are enlarged.

Have a wonderful day/night! I'll try to get around more often after this... and check out what you all are uploading!

Warm Hugs,

Elaine :)

Hi Everyone,

It's been a busy, but happy Summer for me-- which is the reason that I may not have been around to visit you for awhile. Well... mostly happy. Car problems that were not cheap kept me from seeing my 5 month old granddaughter for a couple of weeks, but at least the car is finally working again. :)

My job has been keeping me busy also. We are engraving a lot of Stainless Steel mugs right now. We have one type where each shrink wrapped mug must be unwrapped by hand before it is engraved. It's time consuming, and my hands are getting a little sore... but hey... it's a living! I can listen to any kind of music that I want to while I unwrap them too.:D

I try to upload at least 5 wallpapers a month. I uploaded one wall on July 4th. I tried to get more up here during the month, but things kept coming up. Finally, today, July 31st, I rushed these 5 wallpapers up here. I got them uploaded with less than 3 hours to spare; August 1st starts on Desktop Nexus at 8pm my time. (Michigan, USA) It feels great to have beaten the clock! :D I hope to get many more walls uploaded during the month of August, because I have a backlog now...stay tuned! lol

As you can see, I've got 3 Cows Group walls up in this bunch; and 2 of them are especially silly...:P :D If you aren't a member of the Cows Group yet, you should check it out. There is such an incredible variety of cow wallpapers in it scenic, unusual, cute, humorous, etc... I think this group has become one of the most interesting (and fun!) ones on Desktop Nexus! :D

I hope that you are having a great Summer also, or a great Winter, depending on where you live!

Elaine :)

PS. PUPPYDAWG/ROGER news is that there isn't that much right now. He is doing better, but has an annoying, chronic cough. I do think he could use your prayers. He wants to come back to Desktop Nexus, but he needs a new computer to do so. He has enough money, but he isn't very mobile. Hopefully, one of his relatives will be able to help him out with that soon. Believe me, he misses everybody!

PS. Wonderful News! Puppydawg/ Roger told me that he will be getting out of the hospital tomorrow! Which will be Easter Sunday. :D

Description: I took this photo at the beginning of May. I can't believe that May is almost over already! Where does the time go?

It's actually something I've wanted to do for years...photograph some tree leaves when they are first emerging. Every Spring it seemed like something would come up...too bus...
