How Soon Is Now?

Clear and clean.


his has been a nightmare to post. For some reason the computer crashed. I had to go into recovery mode which dropped all of my passwords. Of course, everything that I needed to load took forever.

WordPress, which is always a problem, got worse. Spell check stopped functioning and try as I might I can not load the proper version of this picture. I put a border around the picture because it was blending into the page. Do you see a border? I can see the picture with a border on my desktop, but WordPress can’t see it.

I’m planning that during the first week or two of 2022 to make a lot of changes here. My numbers have dropped through the basement floor. They are as low as the first day that I started. Obviously, I’ve either reached my threshold or my work just plain sucks.

I’m pretty sure that I’ll pick one of the three options, I’ll post every other day, twice a week or not at all. I don’t need the grief of fighting with technology that I never wanted to learn in the first place. I don’t need to watch most of my friends make good process while I spin my wheels.

I thought that I made and produced a nice picture. I don’t think that right this minute.

  1. Please, don’t give up WP completely, numbers are rising and falling, it’s the pandemic and people seem to be less online, it’s also the very strange algorithm, sometimes I don’t get all the new posts of bloggers I follow because I fall out of the tribe and have to follow again, and I notice people following my blog disappear just to follow me again after ages, probable they experience the same things … also on fb, I just don’t know what really is going on … but still, please, don’t give up, WP has it’s flaws, but the people there, the bloggers, they are somehow a special crowd … 🧡 I would miss you und your colorful inspirations terribly. Best wishes from Vienna, and I hope we get through this terrifying time soon!!!!! Silvia


  2. I wonder if others are having trouble following your blog as much as I am? That would surely affect your numbers, especially if it’s a bulk action.That’s got to be a WordPress issue! If you want details about what is happening on my end, I’d be glad to tell you. But the bottom line is I can follow you for a month or so, and then you just disappear.

    I don’t see the border, but it is a really intriguing photo.


  3. Thank you. I’ve done this for a long time. I’m starting to fail to see why I continue. I didn’t tell you this, but we are kinda moving to your neck of the woods. We bought a farm in the Shenandoah Valley about 20 miles from Charlottesville. 82 acres, former dairy farm.
