  1. Beautiful, Gina! (PS – how come you haven’t been publishing your posts to your FB page? You really should – so more ppl can enjoy the beauty of your work.) Happy Friday! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Patricia! That’s a good point and I’ll try to post more regularly to FB in the future. I’m actually trying a personal experiment for the month of February, avoiding the site for this month only. (I have an addictive personality, so sometimes — for now, at least — it has to be all or nothing.) Happy weekend to you and Brian!

      • Oh, well, no worries then! I can completely appreciate how you feel. I’m actually not on there as much as my “norm” lately – but I find when I “lay off” FB, family and friends think something bad happened! It truly has gotten ridiculous. Good luck w/ your experiment, and I hope your weekend is going well, too!

  2. Thanks for understanding. πŸ™‚ I’m enjoying my time away and realizing how time-consuming FB can be. However, there are a few people from whom I haven’t heard a word since politely stepping away. 😦 That’s how it goes, though . . .
