First, let me confirm that I am still here. I apologize for neglecting my wonderful dedicated followers. I have been so busy with other things that I simply have not had a spare moment to post anything.
What has kept me away? Well... it all relates to the desert. My husband and I are knee-deep in the final editing and layout of a book being published by the organization we volunteer for (the Mojave Desert Heritage & Cultural Association, for those who might be interested). I have also been busy pulling together some of my desert photos for two calendars to sell (I hope!) during the annual get-together for the organization's membership the first weekend of October. One is scenes around the East Mojave and one is wildflowers and cactus flowers that are found there. You can check them out at my Zazzle store. All of this is very fun stuff, just time consuming.
And on that note, I bid you adieu until I find the next opportunity to reappear. Also, please be assured that I am keeping up with reading your comments and am trying to respond as much as possible. I do always love hearing from you!
