Greetings to everybody! :)

Although I've been logging in to DN everyday, I haven't been very active. Case in point... I haven't uploaded any wallpapers this month... until today, and it's the very last day of the month!

I have to admit that part of it is I've been watching all of the Coronavirus/Covid 19 TV news. (That's about all the news there is, these days!) I've watched in horrified fascination as the numbers of sick people go higher and higher. At least the TV news does one good thing, it leads me to pray, again & again & again for nurses, doctors, and other medical personnel. Also for all of the people who have fallen ill from this hateful virus...

In Michigan we are under "Stay at Home" orders. I think every state in the USA should be doing that-- I feel sorry for people in places that do not have these orders. One of my sisters who lives in another state told me she wishes so much that their governor would give Stay at Home orders too, so everyone will be safer.

At this point, I want to apologize to everyone who belongs to my Cows, Sheep, and Balloon Groups. Normally, I favorite and comment on all of the wallpapers in those 3 groups. I just haven't had it in me to do that lately. :( I may not be getting back to that very much until the pandemic is more under control and less worrisome.

If you have uploaded wallpapers to any of those 3 groups that you would really like me to see and comment on, post them directly on my profile, and I'll try to do better. For that matter, if any of you have ANY walls you think I would appreciate, post those on my profile page too. Frankly, I could use some beautiful walls right now, to keep my mind off of the latest Covid-19 woes.

The 3 wallpapers that I've just uploaded are below. The first wall especially, was inspired by the Covid-19 situation. I hope it will make you smile. We can all use something to laugh at these days...

Whatever you do, take care of yourselves and your loved ones! I hope we DNers can all get through this pandemic safely!

Giant Hugs,

Elaine :)

If you are like me, you have some great memories of 2019 but also things you would just as soon put far behind you. For now, let's leave the old behind and celebrate the new!:D

Hugs,

Hello everyone,

It is so good to be able to write a greeting to all of you! :)

I had a major life changing event this month. Many of you know that on December 9th I had a massive heart attack. I am so glad to be alive and able to tell you that. :D

I will never be the same again. I am not talking about what I went through or the 2 stents in my heart. I am talking about mentally. You can't go through something like this without rethinking your priorities and what is most important to you in life...

I won't tell you about every priority that I've set for myself, but there are a couple that you will want to know. One is that I am more committed to Desktop Nexus than ever. I still love and care about this website, in spite of the spam and neglect. You, my friends, make this website a joy to be on. I will do what I can to battle spam and stay in touch with all of you. :)

I can probably explain the most important priority in my life by talking about my December wallpapers. They are in this post in the exact order that I uploaded them. imo these wallpapers are an accurate description of my life so far this month.

"Christmas Ribbon Dance" is a simple light hearted Abstract I completed about 3 days before I went through the heart attack. (I also had a funny one to go along with it, of a somewhat psychedelic poinsettia. I never finished that one. I'll probably upload it next Christmas.)


I created "A Stained Glass Christmas" in the spirit of, "Oh gosh! I'm barely going to have any Christmas wallpapers to upload this month! I've got to get busy creating something!" :P Well, I starting having so much fun manipulating my stained glass window photo that I forgot to worry about the number of wallpapers that I might or might not upload. It felt so good to take my time and simply create something intricrate and pretty! :)


"A Wonderful Gift" has two hearts in it's design. (At first glance they may not be easy to see.) In the description of this wallpaper I've written about some of the things I went through during my heart attack. I did not go through it alone! God was with me all the way through... :)


The last wallpaper in my post, "O Holy Night" is the reason that I didn't get to upload these wallpapers until Christmas Day. (As I write these words, it is 3am where I live, and yes, it is indeed Christmas!:D) The other 3 wallpapers were ready to go up a couple of days ago. But I felt like something was missing... and after some soul searching I realized that I wanted to create a wall that told a story... the Christmas story. I hope you like it! Of all of these wallpapers, this is the one that I'd love for you to take a close look at, in part because I put so much work into it. I think I spent at least 16 hours on it!:) (I had that kind of time on my hands because my cardiologist didn't want me to go back to work or drive for a couple of weeks.)


Thank you so much for being my friends. Thank you for the care and the concern and the get well wishes that you all PMed me with and/or posted on my profile page. That meant so much to me...

Have a beautiful, wonderful, and blessed Christmas, everyone. And if you don't celebrate Christmas, have a beautiful, wonderful week ahead!

God bless us, everyone!

Hugs,

Elaine :)

PS. There is one Desktop Nexus member who is no longer with us. Blueangels1015/Judy went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, December 19th. Grandma Gingerbread/Joyce let me know this just today through a PM. (For anyone who doesn't know, Grandma Gingerbread/Joyce is Judy's sister.)

Joyce is extremely busy right now with funeral arrangements and many other things that must be taken care of when someone passes away. She told me that she would be on DN sporadically for awhile because of that. Here is a link to her profile page in case you would like to send her a sympathy card. (I can only imagine how rough it must be to lose a loved one at this time of year.) :(

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon? Did you watch it as it happened on television like I did? Share your memories in the comments on this wallpaper. :D

Have a great evening!

Elaine :)

PS. If you are too young to remember the moon landing, congratulations... you are probably in a lot better shape than I am... :P :D

Hello everyone,

I've been behind in all things DN, especially visiting around. I've been dealing with everything from a very painful tooth to taking a short 3 day vacation. Unfortunately, I had to take the painful tooth with me! :P Finally, towards the middle of the 2nd day, the tooth began to calm down as the antibiotics I was taking started to work. When my husband and I drove home on the third day, we felt refreshed and rejuvenated. Sooner or later, I'll be uploading some vacation photos. We stayed in Michigan and went to Mackinaw Island and then to the Soo Locks in the Upper Peninsula.

Something funny happened to me just before we came home. We were eating at an old fashioned diner. After we had hamburgers, we decided to order soft serve Sundaes for dessert. (I was all for anything soft & easy to eat.) When the waitress brought them out, her hand hit my tall glass of ice cubes and water. Ice and water cascaded into my lap and onto the floor. The poor waitress was very dismayed... but I just burst out laughing. I told her not to worry; she had picked the right person to spill ice water on. I had an extra set of clothing in our suitcase. After John and I ate our desserts, he went out and got me a denim skirt and a green tee shirt. I changed out of my soaked clothing in the bathroom, and then we started our drive home.

I took loads of photos while we were on vacation, but all of the walls here are ones I tried to upload before we left. I simply ran out of time. (2 emergency dental appointments just before we left didn't help!)

Anyway, I hope you like these. The "church geese" and the wallpaper with the moon in it were all photographed at my church. The other three photos are ones I took near my home.

Have a great week, everybody. May you experience lots of blue sky and sunshine! :D

Elaine :)

Greetings! :D

I've been playing with colors...




...keeping my eye out for color loving rabbits...


and being thankful for what Easter is all about.


Have a beautiful & meaningful holiday! And don't eat too many chocolate marshmallow eggs! :D

Elaine :)

Hi Ed,

I did some unexpected & unusual cloud watching the other day. I've got some striped wallpapers to prove it! :D

Have you ever seen cloud formations like these? If you have, I'd love to know about it. They're sure new to me...

Happy cloud watching... and have a wonderful week!

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!







CollieSmilePosted by CollieSmile   4/16/17 at 1:35am



From the beauty of Spring and the fun of Easter Bunnies & all of the trimmings...


to the amazing & glorious meaning of this holiday;


I hope that you will all

Elaine :)

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

Hi... I'm coming by with some

Yep... I'm late to the party all right. :P I had to work some extra hours, got tangled up in a traffic jam, and some other stuff, but I wore green and managed to have fun in spite of it all.

I hope you had a great holiday! :D

Elaine :)

KaPoof! I have turned into a Grandma!:D :D :D

(Thanks to Luna for the use of this wallpaper!:D :D :D)
