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 :)

Hi Rita,

Springtime greetings from the lower Peninsula of Michigan! :P :D

Believe it or not, I took the photograph above 2 days ago, on April 17th. I guess it goes along with the rest of our upside down world that we would get a couple inches of snow on an April Spring day. Actually, some parts of Michigan got 6 inches of it!

Below are three more pictures that I took that day. Thank goodness the snow has melted-- at least where I live! :P

I know that the snow blew through more states than just Michigan, and it probably went through parts of Canada also. If you experienced any of this unseasonable weather, I'd love to hear about it! :D


Elaine :)

PS. I hope to start getting more active on DN soon. I was in shock for quite awhile about the pandemic that we are all experiencing, but I think I'm finally adjusting to everything.

Thank you to all of you who have left comments on my wallpapers... that is SO appreciated! I hope to start leaving comments on yours again soon too. We need to uplift and support each other during these disturbing and difficult times. In my opinion, there is no better way to do that than to leave a comment on a wallpaper! :) :) :)

PPS. Here is a caution/warning to everyone who uploads wallpapers to DN... If you are in the habit of putting descriptions on your wallpapers, BE CAREFUL! Save your descriptions in a document so that you don't lose them.

When I uploaded my 4 wallpapers today, I edited them to add a group or two that I had forgotten. I added my groups, but when I hit "Save" my entire wallpaper description vanished! Thank goodness, I had written my descriptions in memos separate from DN. I was able to paste them back in... whew! I have now begun a document of every one of my descriptions. I also plan to paste and copy my descriptions on to a memo pad before I do any Group adding or editing on any wallpaper from now on.

This may be a new bug or it may only happen from time to time. All I know is, I'm not going to take any chances with this, and I'm sure that none of you will want to either. Please pass this info along to any uploader you know whom it could help. :) :) :)
